i prefer games that:

  • have rules explainable in 5 minutes or so
  • move relatively quickly

list, with a few points about why i like each game:

  • ricochet robots - insanely small ruleset, can play against oneself, can play co-op or competitive, can play fast and loose or slow and contemplative, very comp-sciencey
  • dominion - fast gameplay, deck-builders are fun
  • codenames - wordplay, shared context with friends you've known for a while, can play co-op or competitive
  • jaipur - only played once - need to play some more
  • unlock! - escape room, lateral thinking, can ignore timer if needed

Welcome to my Listography! If you're new here, this is a site for making lists, usually about yourself. I use it as a personal page. Look around to learn more about me.

I was born in 1994 in Mumbai, India. My home is Pune, a beautiful city about four hours away. I'm a computer scientist by training. I like to read, and I love exploring music (my favourite genres are hardcore punk and indie rock). I also love long-distance biking. I enjoy travelling whenever I get the opportunity to, and for the last few years I've been fortunate enough to have the chance to visit some very beautiful and interesting places for reasons of study, business or tourism. Currently, I reside in the United States.

I usually go by the name kwon online.
