An introduction

Hi everyone, my name is Jörgen and I've just turned 35 years old. I live in southern Sweden with my fiancee and son.

I've been a boardgamer for 18 years or so, ever since I played a session of Age of Renaissance with some friends. So we've had this group of people playing ever since then. However, since I had my son two years ago the gaming has been rather rare.

Now the hard years of parenthood have passed, so more games again - yay! I even got to resurrect my tradition of visiting Essen spiel this year. While there I was looking at the new FFG X-com game, and I was infuriated.

Why oh why didn't they let the aliens be controlled by a player? I've had that exact game idea for years. I loved UFO: Enemy unknown back in the 90's. I've been wanting a good board game implementation of it for a long time now. So FFG squandered it for a gimmicky tablet based coop game.

So that's what I hope to design - and one day sell at Essen Spiel :)

Best regards,

Hi Jörgen, welcome aboard

Hi Jörgen, welcome aboard (although I'm pretty new as well). Love the idea of playing an alien invader, looking forward to seeing how your ideas shape up.
