      Mario Kart, Sonic All-Star, Pokemon Go

      Edit: ah sure, board games, I like them more than video games.
      Race for the Galaxy, Simply Ingenious, Dixit, Code Names, and some games involving words (for example Apples for Apples) are my favourites.

      I love games! Thinking up a game on a theme is just like doing applied maths. The game is an abstraction, a model of a complex real-world situation, where the essence of the problem has to be captured through a few variables (scores, counters, etc.) and rules.

      Favourite computer game: FTL.

      Favourite board games: Go, gloomhaven, currently enjoying undaunted: normandy.

      I’m a board game person – I think Pandemic (and Pandemic Legacy) is my absolute favourite. I also really like Sangrada, Alhambra, Kingdom Builder, Ex Libris, Seven Wonders, Exploding Kittens, Dobble, Takenoko, Ticket to Ride Europe…. (we have a big collection! For Christmas we got Photosynthesis, Wingspan and Quacks of Quindelburg, all of which are really good).
