  • Antike and Heckmeck

    I tried Antike with Johanna. It’s certainly not the best two-player game, but it was fun and I got some practise with the mechanics so it’ll be easier for me to teach in Helcon this weekend. So, yeah, it was fun. We played on the Middle-East side, Johanna played Arabs and the Greeks against my […]

  • Lahti games weekend, Saturday and Sunday
