Hi, I'm Kat Costa. You can find me on BGG under the username kataclysm. I discovered pyramid games around 2012 and I liked the idea of playing many games from one set of materials. Years later, it has proved an enduring hobby for me. My favorite pyramid games tend to be combinatorial games with lots of strategy and very little luck.
