1- Before your first game…Portugal. The eighties. A young shy kid likes to play. Hates to lose. Get’s lost, a lot. Games, never board games, mainly soccer, video games, floppy disks, 1 of 3, competitive, insert coin, release the anger, small town, friends and family, first.

History. Books, old books. Journalism. Old news.

Wrong generation complex. Beer. Pearl Jam.

2- Carefully remove the tiles from their frames…

Paulo invited me over for a Saturday of games. Play Station, PES. With some friends. Home.

Routine. Strange “games with pieces and rules” emerged. Handle with care. Frustration. Overthinking. Dreams. What’s next ? There’s more ? Game on.

3- Place the game board on the center of table…

Write. Study, blog. Play !

Rules. Research. There’s more ? Play, play.

“Spiel” - Portugal - the perfect circle.

There are more ? Convention, Leiria(Con). Geek. Geeks, Board Game Geeks.

Game of the Year, choices, opinion, Play, play… play !

4- Advanced rules only…

Essen. The World. Home. Designers. Friends.

Smile. Play, play… wait ?

Why not… Design ? Beer. Books. Old books, research. Overthinking. Dreams.

Prototypes, words, numbers and words.

Madeira… Panamax… Nippon… Shower mechanics.

5- It all goes back in the box…

Board Games. Geek. Community. Friends. Family.

“Look, there's no metaphysics on earth like chocolates” and boardgames.

Play. REC.
