Bio: Andrea Sfiligoi is an independent Italian game designer. He writes and publishes games under the name "Ganesha Games", using the website http://www.ganeshagames.net as a hub of his many activities. His tabletop games have been published in English, Italian, French, Spanish and German, thanks to the help of a veritable army of volunteer translators, editors, and proofreaders. His best-known titles are tabletop wargames to be played with miniatures (painted, metal or plastic figurines in a variety of scales). He is the author of the Origins-Award nominated "Song of Blades and Heroes" fantasy skirmish rules. He also wrote games such as Fear and Faith, Mutants and Death Ray Guns, Mighty Monsters, and many others. The gaming system outlined in "Song of Blades and Heroes" has also been adapted to other genres or historical periods by other authors , including Sergio Laliscia who won an Origins award with Song of Drums and Shakos. Andrea lives in Italy with two cats, hundreds of books, and several thousands miniatures. In addition to gaming, he paints, shoots a longbow and works as an illustrator.
