CATALÀ | ESPAÑOL

Miquel Jornet:
father, autodidact and amateur game designer.

BIOGRAPHY

I was born in 1979 and I am living in Gavà (Barcelona). I am Social and Cultural Associate Degree trained in Social Education, Marketing and ICT. On 2006 I discovered the board games new era and I actively participated in various projects and associations with the intention of introducing these fascinating products of social and cultural entertainment.

Since 2011 I decided to go beyond starting collaborations and my own projects about communication and popularization. I participated in different game design contests while I found a very motivating job also linked to "culturetainment". On 2012 and 2013 I led the night gaming meetings called LA NOCHE MÁS CORTA MÁS LARGA DE JUEGOS at Baix Llobregat. In August 2015 I started the biggest adventure of my life: the fatherhood.

During all these years my game collection arrived nearly to 800 references to try to better understand the mechanics and resources of game authors. I'm member of the Unpub Network, I have a 18 h-index and my BGG genotype says that I am:

EUROGAMER8.8 out of 10
WARGAMER6 out of 10
SOCIAL GAMER5.9 out of 10
THEMATIC GAMER1.3 out of 10
