Please allow me to introduce myself, I'm a man of wealth the world and taste:

Hi, I'm Cornel from Basel, Switzerland.

Fond memories of playing Snakes and Ladders, then Pachisi with my dad and sister. Discovered Monopoly when visiting friends when I was about nine. Loved it.

Teenage years: Chess and Poker with my school mates.

After school: The Dark Ages (games-wise).

Early nineties: Girlfriend gave me a copy of Abalone as a present. After a few plays we'd had enough.

Around 1996: Girlfriend's sister taught us the Catan, which didn't grab me at all, unfortunately. (It took me 12 years to realize how much fun this game can be. )

Around 2002: Bought a copy of 'Adel verpflichtet' (Hoity Toity) because of the cute images of British castles, some of which we had been visiting. Soon realized that the game was only good with 5 players so it hit the table very rarely.

Christmas 2003: Bought a copy of Carcassonne and Torres, just because they had won the German Game of the Year Award. Loved them.

Looked for reviews on the Internet, discovered luding.org and boardgamegeek.com, started purchasing some more games (Taj Mahal!), joined a games club in 2005. And haven't looked back.


The extremely subjective but totally honest Cornel Scale:

10: In my Top Twenty. Gaming Nirvana.

9 : Fantastic game. Tons and tons of fun. Top Twenty candidate.

8 : Very good and lots of fun. Will often suggest it.

7 : Good game, will happily play this when others suggest it and occasionally suggest it myself.

6 : Above average, OK game, some fun to be had, willing to play it if suggested.

5 : Below average, bribe me with some chocolates if you want to play this with me.

4 : How much did you say your bribe was?

3 : A brand-new Morgan sports car?

2 : gulp

1 : zombie

If anyone of you is ever in the Basel area and if you like some of my games tantaj: indigo redtrain trash pepper, drop me a geekmail.
