Living in Stuttgart as a screenwriter working with children and young people. Playing mostly with my family a lot of different games, and really loving the diversity of ideas and mechanisms. My All-time favourite is XiangQi, the only game in which I miss nothing.
Also working as a game designer and member of the German Game Designer Association SAZ (www.spieleautorenzunft.de
). My first game was successfully financed via crowdfunding:Steam Noir: Revolution
Since May 2012 I do some smaller online jobs for Zoch and attend to playtest sessions for their upcoming games. This has no influence on my opinions of any given game or my ratings whatsoever.
Translating game rules became more than pure hobby fun for the final game as a reward in the last 6 years, now translating more or less constantly for Asmodee (Nations, Spyrium, Rampage, Black Fleet ...).
My current hot 10 I am eager to play (more):

Not Duchamp, but a film still from Dalí/Bunuel`s masterpiece "Un Chien Andalou".
