  • Gaming Year 2012

    Another year gone. Good years keep on rolling – I rather enjoyed 2011, and have no complaints about 2012. My kids continued to be good playing company. My son is now six and half, and is ready for some proper family games. I started introducing him to card games, as well, and that worked well. […]

  • Acquire, Age of Industry, Pantheon, Oregon

    Biweekly recap time. Acquire. More Acquire. This one turned out to be a big hit. I sure don’t mind. Won’t be surprised if this hits ten plays this year. Suggest. Age of Industry. I’ve known that Brass is something I should be interested in. Hannu has had Age of Industry since it was published. How come […]

  • International business: Greed and Acquire

    Two weeks ago we played Greed, incorporated. This is a Splotter game that came out in 2009. I’ve played it once before in 2010, then it languished unplayed for two years… But finally we got to play it again. Again, it was a blast. This is one of the most entertaining games I know, few […]

    Yesterday’s game session was a bit of a disappointment. I wanted to play Colorado Midland, as I’d just picked up the Winsome Essen set. Unfortunately, waiting for a while didn’t produce an extra player, so we couldn’t get a game going and had to play Sahara to spend some time in the lack of better […]

  • FinDipCon pictures

    FinDipCon pictures are finally available! There’s the event pictures to start with. I also took lots of game photos: Acquire, Capitol, Fabrik der Träume, FlowerPower, Go, Members Only, New England, Ohne Furcht und Adel, Royal Turf, Samurai and Taj Mahal. As usual, the captions are in Finnish but the pictures speak the international language of […]

  • FinDipCon V: Saturday

    After about six hours of mediocre sleep and an hours walk in early morning Helsinki before the doors opened, the Saturday games started. After some quick two-players (Lost Cities and Flowerpower), we played the New England Phil had bought Friday. I studied the rules quickly and teached the others. It took a while to digest […]

  • New games!

    My collection grew by two games today, when I picked up Mare Nostrum and Acquire from the post office. Both were donated by Puolenkuun pelit as a payment for using my board game articles at their web site. Thanks to them! Mare Nostrum looks quite cool, I just haven’t been able to try it out […]

  • Games from last Friday

    Last weekend I visited my good friend Tommy and we had a great weekend full of fun and games. I’m going to write session reports about the whole weekend, a day at a time because they’re going to be a bit longer — lots of new games, you see. I’ll start with Friday. I came […]
