Bruno Faidutti by Bruno Faidutti: www.faidutti.com

Fourty-two year old Bruno Faidutti is a multi-facetted intellectual, vaguely historian and partially economist, who spends a lot of time in Avignon, and a little in Paris, where he has ammassed a collection of several thousand board and card games.

An avid bookreader, Bruno came to the world of gaming through role-playing games and chess. Chess being decidedly too sad a world to linger in, he quickly dropped them when discovering funnier things in life. Role-playing games, especially live-action ones, were fun indeed, but too time-consuming. That left board and card games, both of whom he plays frequently, for Bruno remains a player first and foremost.

The games he has designed, many of them card games, often offer a healthy dose of bluff and interaction.


Somewhere up in the mountains between Annecy and Chamonix, in the French Alps, lives Bruno, a man with two lives: By day, a job engineering special alloys and rare metals. By night, creating board games, riffing on a Jazz guitar and appearing in a local theatrical amateur troop. The debate as to which of these two lives is the most all-consuming remains open, though the nocturnal side seems to be gaining the upper hand lately. Throw in a few Mountain Bike treks, a handfull of tennis plays and some gaming nights between friends, and soon you too will be asking when is this man sleeping?
