Why I play

Wolfgang Kramer (designer of Tikal, Torres, El Grande, Princes of Florence, 6 Nimmt...) ended an interview with Tom Vasel with the following:

"Board games are a bridge which brings people together. Playing games is jogging for our mind; it is freedom, event, adventure, discovery, fun and challenge. Board games are like real life, but they have nothing to do with real life, because all that does happen happens only in the game. Reality is serious; playing is the opposite of it; it is pleasure."

Mr. Kramer has beautifully encapsulated why I so enjoy EuroGames. I guess it is no wonder I am particularly fond of his creations.
