Across a crowded room, I saw you. Your bright colours, yet slightly sinister, artwork drew me in and I knew I had to look. Motora is simply put, beautiful. So, then we sat and played it. We proceeded to have one of the most bloodthirsty games we have had in a long time! Don’t let looks fool you, this game is brutal.

He also has a rather silly sense of humour as does Ominoes Hieroglyphs - An ancient tile laying game proves. However, his designs are wholly serious and are great family games.
