#boardgamersask Antoine Bauza

Possibly one of the biggest names in board game design will be joining us on WEDNESDAY 12th Febuary at 2pm (EST) 7pm(GMT) as a guest on #boardgamersask

Even if you do not know the name Antoine Bauza, you will have heard of his games! To name a few, Ghost StoriesSeven Wonders, HanabiTakenoko & Rampage... If you were to own only these games, you have a brilliant little collection that both family members and hard core gamers can enjoy!
The designer in his own words

Who is he?

"Good question ... Player since I was old enough to hold a dice or a card in my little pogne I wandered universities in universities until I decide to follow the path of education and the - less noble it is true - the game

Other than that, I hate raw tomatoes, rolls Brompton devours literature fiction and comics, plays everything and anything, learning Japanese, losing a lot of time surfing, practice Aikido and Jodo, desperately seeking a Chinese abacus ..."

What does he do?

Having written or contributed to several RPGs, especially within the group of authors and illustrators Ballon-Taxi (Exile Tears Rust, Scavengers, Dwarves & Gardens, Final Frontier, Hellywood, Zohomatos), I abandoned this medium to that of the game. I have several projects currently being edited, some in development ... and lots of ideas in my boxes.

In 2008, I reduced my teaching activity in a part-time to continue my adventure fun and get involved in writing for young people and in the scripting of Comics. In 2009, I suspended my teaching activity to push in this direction ...
