kaelistus 2 I wish the "switch pieces" rule was in effect to stop the mirroring tactic, but the game is still great.

nih 2 I like how such simple game rules give rise to deep strategy and tactics.
nycavri 2 Great design. Slightly drawn out endgame.
Zugzwang 2 I fall in love very easily. Ooops, I did it again. :-)

Cerulean 1 Underrated abstract game from Sid Sackson. Still has plenty to teach me.
goulo 1 A fine DVONN-esque game and a bit of a modern classic, but I seem to have a terrible mental block about it and play it very incompetently, which decreases my joy a bit...
