  • Games ahead

    It’s been quiet recently. My gaming activities have been more focused on the console games side, but hey, things are heating up here as well. Next weekend I’m heading to Jyväskylä to see my mother and Ismo and as usual, games are in schedule. I’m looking forward to finally try Fifth Avenue, but I suppose […]

  • Weekend games: St. Petersburg rocks!

    I was in Jyväskylä this weekend and it sure was an interesting weekend games-wise. I thought my mother would like San Juan, because she likes Puerto Rico but it’s a bit too deep for her. She isn’t that into devising strategies and I think kind of plays to keep me and Ismo happy — we’re […]

  • Quality Games Weekend: Attika, Puerto Rico

    I was in the Jyväskylä last weekend and as usual, played some games while there. The winner of the weekend was Attika, without a doubt. I expected it to sink in well and it certainly did. First time we played on Friday, my mother and Ismo wanted to play another game, and another game after […]

  • Weekend games: Puerto Rico, Gang of Four

    I was in Jyväskylä meeting my parents last weekend and games were played, as usual. The boys weren’t home this time, so I chose more adult games that would work with three. Well, youngest of the boys was around enough so a game of 6 Nimmt! got played. Another fairly typical game choice was Puerto […]

  • Weekend games, Sunday

    Sunday began with a game of Mamma Mia! with the kids. They’ve become fans quickly, I guess I’ll just have to keep on taking the game with me from now on. I’d also throw a guess that it’s going to appear on the next Adam Spielt order, too… Land Unter, here are the kids. Kids, […]

  • Weekend games, Saturday: Monopoly, Puerto Rico

    Saturday began with a surprising game choice: Monopoly. I’ve been wanting to play it for a while now and finally I got the opportunity. I played with Oskari and Severi. Oskari was the first one to be dropped out, when he went bankrupt on my houses. I got a nice bunch of mortgaged properties, most […]

  • Weekend games, Friday: Puerto Rico

    My trip to Jyväskylä went well. My brother picked me up from the busy railroad station and gave me a lift to where my mother and Ismo live. Before he left, we played few games of Battle Line. Which was nice, especially as I won two out of three. Balloon Cup was fairly popular game […]

  • Games at Jyväskylä: Amun-Re, Coloretto

    I had a pleasant almost-weekend at Jyväskylä (from Thursday to Saturday) and as usual, games were played. I took with me the games my mother had bought (Africa, 6 Nimmt! and Vom Kap bis Kairo) and some of my new games (Coloretto, King Lui and Amun-Re). Coloretto was a huge success! We played 14 games […]

  • Weekend games: Sunda to Sahul, Sticheln, Bakari

    I had a nice weekend, when it comes to games. First game I played Friday was an old favourite, Battle Line. It’s always a blast, and I actually managed to win half of the six games I played during the weekend. But that wasn’t the main attraction. I desperately wanted to play Sunda to Sahul. […]

  • Bingo!

    Yes, I’ve grown old. Very old. I went to play Bingo last Saturday. My mother has started to play Bingo occasionally and she lured me with her and her partner, as we had an hour to waste before he had to leave for a trip. And guess what: it was actually fun! Of course, Bingo […]
