Apart from gamer, also a musician, pianist, singer and occasional cyclist.
- Euros. The concept of relative peaceful strategic competition over shared resources rather than killing each other and spawning hatred over the table is my cup of tea. Plus, very few Euros let a player fall out in the middle of the game and have him sit there for an hour, waiting for the game to end.
- GIPF, or other abstract 2 players puzzle solving, because why not.
- Nice artwork to look at, especially after my gf paints the miniatures. Granted, there are less figurines in Euros than in Ameristuff, but still the gameplay and fairness goes first for me.
- When an author can create a game asymmetric yet balanced. Kudos to Adam Kaluza for Drako.
- Among the Stars
- Ghost Stories, 7 Wonders and so far anything from Antoine Bauza.
- Taluva and so far anything from Marcel Andre Casasola Merkle.
- Imperial Settlers
- The whole GIPF project.
- Sewer Pirats
- Game of Thrones
- Carrcassonne for some reason, even though it's considered a model Euro.
- Last Will
- Dungeon Petz and some of the more complex Vlaaďa's work. Codenames were a pleasant surprise, though... and I heard some good news about smartphone Galaxy Trucker.
