  • Interview and a review

    Boardgaming Finland podcast interviewed me and reviewed my book in their latest episode. Unfortunately the interview and review are in Finnish, but if you understand Finnish and want to hear someone else’s opinion of the book, Cane’s review is definitely worth listening (it helps he gives the book an excellent review).

  • Yours truly on Radio Free Finland

    Phil Schwarzmann from Finland for Thought, who you also might know from Spielfrieks or BoardGameGeek, hosts a weekly live podcast called Radio Free Finland. Every week he interviews some guests about a topic or other, and this week I was on the show. We talked about board games, Finnish blogosphere and my experiences in Who…

  • Tom Vasel interview

    I’m flattered: Tom Vasel wanted to interview me for his Interviews by an Optimist series. The resulting interview talks about board games in Finland, evolution of board gaming, blogs and whatnot. It’s pretty neat, if you ask me.

  • Radioactivity

    You can hear me tomorrow (Tuesday, 21th December) in radio. I’m visiting the Radio Tampere morning show around 8 am for a short bit about board games in general. If you’re around Tampere, the frequency is 99.9 MHz. I’ve been there and done that, but it’s always fun.

  • Interview

    Rick Heli (A Spotlight on Games!) interviewed yours truly for his series of interviews of gamers around the world. Thanks to his frames, I can’t provide a direct link, but it should open directly on the front page.

  • Kotiliesi article

    I got two copies of the Kotiliesi with my article in it. The article is mentioned in the cover (“The best family games”) and it’s four pages long. Pictures are mostly about classics like Monopoly, Scrabble and Afrikan tähti. There’s a picture of yours truly with a pile of better games (Puerto Rico, Amun-Re, Alhambra,…

  • Media influence

    My game website is a journalist magnet. During the last month or so, I’ve been interviewed twice for a magazine (Kotiliesi and ET-lehti — first is probably a bit like Ladies Home Journal and ET is not about extraterrestrials; it’s targeted mostly for older (say 50+) women) and yesterday I was contacted by someone from…

  • Don Bone interview

    Terminal City Gamers have posted an interesting interview of Don Bone, the designer of Sunda to Sahul, on their web site.

  • Rest of the gaming weekend

    The previous entry covers the games of Friday. This one tells the tale from Saturday to Sunday. It’s a long story, but hopefully of interest at least to someone. Last Saturday was a full day of gaming. I woke up at about ten am and started the morning working on some Go problems. Then, after…

  • Interview request

    I got e-mail from a radio journalist, who wants to interview me about board games. She had found my website and is quite interested about board games and why people don’t play them anymore. So, another opportunity for me to preach the gospel. It’s not the first time (second, to be accurate) I find myself…
