  • Thursday session: Wabash Cannonball, Great Wall of China

    Thanks to Easter, we had to reschedule our Thursday games to Wednesday. I started the session with Don. It’s been a while since I last played this little filler. Too long, actually, as I was already getting hazy with the rules. That’s unconvenient, as I only have the German rules… Well, we did play it […]

  • Board game club session: Tichu, Gulo Gulo, Attika

    We had a nice board game club yesterday. It was strange to have the club on Monday, not Sunday, thanks to the Easter, but many people arrived nonetheless. Tichu was definitely the high point for me yesterday. After reading Steve’s Tichu strategy article I wanted to give it a go (last time I played was […]

  • Afternoon games: San Juan, San Marco

    I met the two Ollis for games today. We played San Juan, where I did the rare choice of pursuing producing as a career. That backfired, especially when I didn’t get a large building.

Don kicked off the session. Even though Don has pretty neat chips in itself, I instantly replaced them with my spanking new poker chips […]

  • Translation of Don

    I wrote a Finnish translation of Don. Enjoy. I noticed the exchange variant in the rules — has anybody given it a go? Is it any good?

  • Boardgame club session: Intrige, Geschenkt

    Erkka and Robert were first to arrive, so we kicked the session off with two games of Da Vinci Code. It’s a good game and really a good choice for the club. It’s easy to learn (even learning by reading the rules is quick and easily done), plays fast and despite being kind of lucky, […]

  • Helcon III — Saturday

    Helcon III began early in the morning, when we packed up everything in Tommy’s car and headed to the location. We quickly set everything up, unpacked games and arranged the tables and whatnot. First visitors arrived early and started playing games soon and soon more came. First game I played was a four-player Crokinole match. […]
