My name is Vangelis and for as long as I can remember I have been playing games! When I was young it was almost exclusively Computer Games until I discovered Magic: The Gathering and I got hooked. After many years and after having spent a lot of money on it I decided to quit and luckily for me I discovered the amazing world of modern boardgames! Now, I have a decent collection, most of my online time is spent on BGG and I've made many new friends thanks to this hobby.
In general I prefer Ameritrash games over euros although I will play almost everything. I also enjoy Dexterity Games. What I am primarily looking for in a game is theme. I want my games to provide a rich thematic experience and to generate a lot of discussion afterwards. Unfortunately, the games I want to play the most, usually last 3-6 hours so I can't easily play them as much as I'd like to.
In 2009 I tried to design a game of my own and the end result was quite successful. The game (Souvlaki Wars) got published by a local company and it sold really well. That led to me designing more games and being lucky enough to see them published (you can see all of them by clicking the badge over my avatar).
As time went by, I realized I REALLY liked game design, and I wanted to spend as much time on it as possible. As a result, on 2014 I quit my day job and started working as a full time game designer/developer, a decision I never regretted!
In the past years I've been blessed with 3 great children which I love more than anything. Of course a direct consequence of this is that my gaming time has been reduced dramatically. However in a few years time I am sure I will have 3 amazing gaming buddies which are going to be helping me with my playtests!
Thank you for taking a look at my profile. If you want to discuss anything about boardgames drop me a geekmail. I am always eager to talk with other gamers!
