I got a delivery from Milan Spiele today (2 months waiting, order still wrong) and included was a free copy of the DoW calender. Looking through it, the important game days are noted, the Nurnberg show, GAMA, Essen and so on. And in blue, little birthday cakes with the designers' names. It's their birthdays!

Now you know their birthdays, you know their Star Signs. What influence do the planets have on their game designs?

BTW, July 5th to July 16th is marked a show FLIP Parthanay. What the heck is that?

What's with all the Scorpios? Maybe only Scorpios want to advertise their birthdays?

I share my birthday with Stefan Dorra and Rudiger Dorn... two of my favourite designers. It's probably the Leo in me, and that might explain a lot of reasons why I like their designs.

Now all I have to ask is why, astrologically speaking, do I still like Colovini's games?

Well, there are just as many in June (not a star sign, sue me). But, also, you have to consider that those are about a week and nine months away. (Sorry, tough drift to catch.)
