Born in Troisdorf, Klein now lives in Würselen near Aachen. He is a public management graduate working at the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority in Bonn. Born in 1986 and therefore currently the baby of the jury … a 1.96m tall and – after careful estimation – 200 pound heavy baby.
After a childhood and adolescence dominated by computer and console games, Klein first discovered his passion for board games after entering the world of work. Friends convinced him to try a game of “Settlers of Catan”, which he’d previously thought was a board game version of the computer games series “Settlers”. In the following years, board gaming came to dominate his free time, shared with an ever-increasing circle of players.
Since 2010, Klein has run the blog “Spielerleben”, which reflects the experience of gaming and life of being a gamer. After discovering in 2011 that he’s not only an excellent gamer but also an excellent chatterbox, he posts video reviews of all kinds of hobby games on his blog and on YouTube.
