Probably playing Monopoly when I was 7 or 8, but as for Eurogaming it was probably playing Settlers of Catan when I was 11 or 12. I thought it was pretty amazing, but I could only play it when I went to my friend's house!
Anything by Stefan Feld basically: Macao, Castles of Burgundy, Notre Dame, Trajan - I'm happy to play any of them.
Playtesting is one of the most, if not the most, important parts in designing games. Being able to test your designs with others is incredibly valuable. And testing with other designers is even more valuable. It's a great group of people, and I get a lot out of playtesting with the group.
My name is Matthew Dunstan, and I'm a PhD student in Chemistry at the University of Cambridge. My first published game, Relic Runners, was realised by Days of Wonder in September 2013.
