Hi, I am from Germany, but live in Italy.
My preferred board game is Go. I think it's just the best board game in the world.
I am also a comic book fan and I like very much the Hikaru No Go manga. There are rumours that Carlsen will soon bring out a german version. I hope it happens soon :) So you may say that I am a Hikaru No Go Junkie ;-)
Due shortage of spare time I play go only occasionally and therefore my improving through the years is not impressive (currently I can hold a 5k),
Unfortunately the go community in Italy is not very big, but with some friends we keep up our local Go Club at Padua (Italy). Visit http://digilander.libero.it/padovago for more information on the Go Club.
If you are interested to visit drop me an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
