  • 1825 Unit 3 pbem, over

    The play-by-email game of 1825 Unit 3 with Justin Rebelo is over (see announcement). We finished the game today, when I resigned on stock round 8. I was behind and Justin was starting minor companies so he would have four directorships (CR, GSWR, GNS and M&C). I had NBR, which wasn’t doing too well. CR […]

  • Gaming Year 2010

    Gaming year 2009 wasn’t terrific, but 2010 was. By numbers alone, I played a lot more games than last year. However, the biggest reason 2010 will go down in history as a good board game year was Nooa. I played well over hundred games with Nooa — actually, I played with Nooa about as much […]

  • PBEM 1825 Unit 3

    I’ve started another play-by-email game. I’m playing 1825 Unit 3 against Justin Rebelo. Since there’s no handy electronic solution to managing the game, we’re using the tried and tested method of having the game board spread out while the game lasts. Unit 3 has compact enough a board to make it possible. There’s also a […]

  • Yearly dose of 1825 Unit 3

    I’m a firm believer that a game of 1825 Unit 3 per year helps to maintain a healthy mind. So, that’s what we did. This was already the fifth of our Unit 3 games. This time, with experience and my nice spreadsheet for money management, we were able to finish in just 2.5 hours. Not […]

  • Look, it’s Scotland again!

    Olli came by to try out the new table. We’ve moved (short distance, just couple hundred meters, but we got an extra room and about 30 square meters more space), and now we have a kitchen and a separate dining room, with a gorgeous new table. As we also have a table in kitchen, it’s […]

  • 1825 Unit 3 with Olli

    Olli and I played another game of 1825 Unit 3 (our first game, our second game). Even though it was a while since our previous game, we got the game up and running in just 10 minutes. That was pretty sweet. On company selection I got the large private, Olli started NBR and I took […]

  • Hot games for Q2/2008

    Continuing from the previous round… Glory to Rome takes the spot as the hottest game of the quarter, by far: it has double the hotness points the second game on the list has. And why not? It’s new and it’s very, very good. I’ve played four games, once each with two, three, four and five […]

  • Return to Scotland: 1825 Unit 3

    I organized another train game session at the local library. Once again, only Olli was able and willing to join me, so it was again time for 1825 Unit 3 (I know we could’ve played Unit 2 as well, but I thought having another go at Unit 3 was better). Our previous game is documented […]

  • Two-player 1825

    I organized a game of 1825 Unit 3 today at the local library. We ended up playing Unit 3, because Olli was the only one who came… Rest were busy or not willing to travel all the way to the suburbs. It’s not a big deal, though, as Unit 3 is made for two players. […]
