A bit about me:
I'm working as a 2nd level IT support technician, I studied as an English-German teacher and now I'm learning One Brain (Three in one) Kinesiology, Bach flower therapy and some Shiatsu massage. I live in Budapest, Hungary.
I'm a vegetarian and a big tea drinker (Chinese and Japanese green, matcha, wulong and Pu-Erh).
Next to playing board games I like to read fantasy and science-fiction novels. One of my favorites are Robert Jordan
and George R.R. Martin
, and the Hungarian Gáspár András
. I occasionally play some PC games (I was a big Lucas Arts
adventure-game and Fallout 1&2
fan). I used to play some pen and paper RPGs when I was younger, now unfortunately I don't have time for that. (I do not like D&D
. The one I played the most was the Hungarian M.A.G.U.S.
and I really liked Alternity
. A shame that it was discontinued.)
I was always fascinated by Magic the Gathering
(the theme and art as much as the mechanics) but loathed the CCG concept, and because of that never played it. This had probably a big influence on my gaming tastes.
The game that really started boardgaming for me was probably Citadels
. Its almost psychologically archetypical character selection that reminded me of Tarot again fascinated me. I'm still waiting for something to do this again (not necessarily the same mechanism but the archetypicalism).The games I like:
I like thematic games. Theme
is more important than mechanics
. For me theme
are the most important things in a game. Without a good and interesting theme I cannot immerse myself in the game even when the mechanism is good. Without great art it's hard to notice a game. Also the theme needs the artwork to be able to work.
