Years ago I read in the regional newspaper Gelderlander, back then on paper, about a board game named Kolonisten van Catan. This intrigued me so much that a few days later I purchased the game. The same evening a befriended couple visited me. We played the game. The couple purchased the same game only a few days later. Not much later I procured Carcassonne. After this start I added a few classics; Scotland Yard and Cluedo but after that the hobby was pretty much put asleep. The couple and I played games occasionally but not on a regular basis.
In my youth I had the pleasure that my parents, mostly in the form of Sinterklaas, took care of getting us some games at home. So we played Monopoly, Risk, Scrabble, Yahtzee, Mens Erger je Niet, Stratego and more that were on the shelves.

Just before Christmas 2010 we decided to meet again to play games again for New Year ’s Eve and I decided that our game collection should be expanded. I went to the shop for Ticket to Ride: Europe which I purchased there but the shopkeeper also showed me Hoogspanning and this game kept in my mind for the following days. The cover of the game shows a wind turbine! And that’s the business where I worked in at that moment. So I went searching online for games and this is how I ended up here, at BGG.

My other hobbies and interests are athletics, basketball, travelling, Latin America, reading, writing and music.
I enjoy writing so I am also happy to post reviews on this forum. So please have a look at some of my writings!

Geek of the Week #390
mbAt the 3rd of March 2013 I was appointed Geek of the Week by Henk Rolleman
This is the thread and I celebrated this with a small give-away. A week later JesterPoet took over the weekly honor in this thread.
I added Indonesia to the Geek of the Weeks favorite games list.

Secret Santa
mbIn 2011 I participated for the first time. I took care of somebody in the United States who actually is a game designer!
From my until today unknown Santa I got The Pillars of the Earth, San Juan and Meuterer, that was a great hoal.
mbIn 2012 I was happy to be part again of this great geek exchange. My target then lives in Italy and I am happy to be still in touch with him. I got un until today unknown Santa again who delivered me Ginkgopolis. See also here.
mb I also participated in the Christmas card exchange, which was great!
mbIn 2013 a very communicative Secret Santa from Israel took care of me and he did very well. I got Pick-a-Dog and Kaigan, fantastic haul!

My avatar is a close up of a detail of a painting I purchased in Lima, Peru. I edited the picture a bit by making it a yellow-gray picture, gray scaling all other colors.
In the picture you might see a woman with pigtails wearing a straw hat. If you do not, you might see it clearer in the original painting.
