My favourite uncle gave me a copy of Tactics II when I was 15. I don't think my parents ever forgave him.

What game(s) are you currently playing (solitaire, FTF, PBEM, etc.) or wish to play next?

What game(s) have you played recently?

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

BGG.com says I have over 1,000 games. I'm inclined to believe it, as I'm not going to go back and count them again!

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 :-)
