  • Gaming Year 2014

    Another good year, can’t complaing. 2013 was good, and 2014 improved upon that. We bought a house this year and moved in, and that meant I got a bookshelf in my office I could use for games. With most of my games visible there, my son’s interest was piqued, and we ended up trying lots of different games. […]

  • Gaming Year 2013

    2013 was a very good year of board games, just like 2012 was before it. My kids and I have continued to play lots of games. My son is now seven and half, and can play quite complicated games. My daughter, soon five, is also a bright little gamer, and much less prone to throwing […]

  • Gaming Year 2011

    2010 was a good year. Well, 2011 was even better. I played more games than on any year on my records. Quality matters, too, but I can control quality more than I can control quantity and if quantity is good, quality tends to be good as well. I played lots of games with my son. […]

Both games are not very good for adult use, so they’ll end up in storage, waiting for Nooa to grow up. Das kleine Gespenst is based on a classic children’s book by […]

  • Game weekend, part 2: Mit List und Tücke, Logistico, Kahuna, Geistertreppe

    Here’s the rest of the games of the great weekend: Mit List und Tücke was brought by Robert, who had noticed the game on my want list in the Geek. It’s a Klaus Palesch trick-taking game and not that far from Sticheln. According to Rick Heli’s Mit List und Tücke page it’s a redevelopment of […]
