  • Funny geeklist

    Every now and then you hit a good GeekList… Variants for the Criminally Twisted (or editions that didn’t make it to production) is one of those, especially this item: Slightly Odd Behaviour at House on the Hill: Players scramble about in a mysterious old house while slightly odd things occur, like they discover that two…

  • Finnish Players’ Picks, coming right up!

    Friday’s are slow at work. Thus, I had plenty of time to tally the votes for the Finnish Players’ Picks. However, I’m not telling you anything yet, you’ll have to wait for another boring day at work before I do the GeekList. All I’m saying that top of the list had both same old hits…

  • Geeklist and dice games

    I did an A-Z list of games. It’s available in the Geek as a GeekList. Feel free to comment it here or there. Finnish readers should note that Knizia’s brilliant book Dice Games Properly Explained is available from Suomalainen kirjakauppa and Bookplus. The price is very reasonable 10 euros.

  • Gamer sense of humor
