  • Gaming year 2007

    Another year of games is soon over. Gaming year 2006 was good, but I think this one was even better! At least in quality, not necessarily in quantity… Good new games (2006-2007 games) Agricola — This year brought two very good games, worthy of top-10 or even top-5 spot on my personal ratings. Agricola is […]

  • Blue Moon City, Bohnanza and Fairy Tale

    Another day, another game session, this time with Olli H. and Sami from yesterday. We kicked off with Blue Moon City, as requested by both Sami and Olli. I’m always game for this one! We played twice and both were quite curious games. In the first one, both Sami and Olli hoarded crystals, we actually […]

  • Hot games for Q2/2007

    After a very slow quarter, I’m back with a bit more action. Phoenicia rules the list, after five online games. It’s good, and I’ll buy it as soon as it appears in Finland. Caylus Magna Carta — forget the board game, the card game has all the Caylus you’ll need and it’s packed in a […]

  • Blue Moon City and Attika

    Once again the year is over and it’s time for the year-end report. Here’s 2005 for comparison… Good games published in 2006 Age of Steam: London and Sun, 1830’s Pennsylvania and Northern California — I’ve played one map from each of the Bézier expansions, and loved both. Interesting new concepts, excellent production quality — great […]

  • Hot games for Q4/2006

    Here’s a list of hottest games for the fourth quarter of 2006 for me. This is based on number of plays, my enjoyment of the game and the novelty value, so new games tend to show up higher on the list. You can also check the previous quarter, with completely different games. Celtica — Surprise, […]

  • Knizia games: Blue Moon City, Tower of Babel, Through the Desert

    I met Gargoyle and Laura for a session of Knizia games, as it turned out. We started the games with Blue Moon City, which turned out to be quite a sweet game. 40 minutes of fairly intense hand management stuff, with room for clever moves. We played twice in a row, and in the second […]
