Friedemann Friese

Friedemann Friese (born June 5, 1970 [Friday the Fifth] in Stadthagen, Lower-Saxony, Germany) is a German board game designer who is known for pairing interesting gameplay with quirky themes. He is notorious for liking the color green, to the point which he includes the color on the cover of all of his designs, and has dyed his hair green. He also likes to begin every word in his titles with the letter 'F,' though this trait is sometimes lost in the English versions of his titles. He designs for his own game publishing company, 2F-Spiele.
