In general, how much time do you spend gaming?
not much - mostly study games now, or test my own

Hi, good to see you in the groups "World of designing" and "Ici". Soon there will be a public game of Ici, played with comments, for everyone to follow. I believe you have a certain interest in the Algeria war :-)
