What an interesting read. Thanks :-)
Hi Christian, are you going to step down? You shouldn’t!
By the way, in your list your most prominent game is missing: “Havannah”.
Doing something I shouldn’t ... story of my life :)
Havannah is missing from this particular list because I feel it doesn’t belong there. It didn’t emerge from any particular concept. More an accidental but lucky merger of win conditions. It changes with board size and 8 to 10 merely _happen_ to be good. I’m not against striking it lucky but I’m not overrating the result either.
Like Johan Cruijff, David Bowie and Christian Freeling I was born in 1947... aahh, what an amazing year! ;-)
Our part of the Netherlands was liberated on the 5th of May 1945, so the first national festivities, which included my conception, were in May 1946. Lots of births in February '47 :)
Ok, that could explain that I was born in July ;-)
I’m glad you’re not COMPLETELY dead Christian.
Yes, quite ironic isn’t it, considering that some ten years ago I decided to keep on smoking pot till the end and then life just keeps on keeping on. But, for all the lack of success, it’s still fun :)
