Martin Schlegel – born 1946
“School? That was not my thing, “he says with his characteristic frankness:” I did not want to learn English, French and Latin, but opening, middle and final moves “Chess was then his passion – and connected to some successes.. In 1966 he was champion in Nordrhein-Westfalen the youth team.
After graduation, he studied economics and then worked as a statistician. He followed the Credo: Necessarily pedantic in production, in presentation easy as possible. Even now in retirement he cannot give up statistics: He remains chief editor of “Urban Research and Statistics”, the journal for statisticians in municipal goverment and universities.
A man of numbers and logic.

He always played a lot, but did not begin to invent games until late in his life. For these he applies the same idea as in chess: few rules – a lot of thinking. Few rules” that applies to all of his games. “Alex Randolph once said: A game is only done if you can not be further simplified.” “Lot of thinking” does not always apply tough. Just think of games like “Nuts”, “Cugolo”, “John Silver,” “Darwinci” or “fair”.

His game “Aqua Romana” was nominated for the 2006 Game of the Year. 85% of its revenues from this well selling game go to the Kindernothilfe.
With “Atacama” he now presents a games bundle with very short rules, but makes it really worthwhile to activate the gray matter.
