  • Gaming year 2008

    So, how was the year? Pretty wild, if you ask me. (See Gaming Year 2007.) Good new games (2007-2008 games) Dominion — Well, I played 28 games of this, and most of them outside BrettSpielWelt. That’s a pretty nice number, considering how late this game arrived. Everybody likes it, or at least doesn’t mind playing […]

  • Thursday session: Age of Steam, Dominion, Le Truc

    It’s been too long from my last game of Age of Steam. Today I got some railroad action in the form of the Scotland scenario. So still no Secret Blueprints, unfortunately, but at least something! I played against Hannu, who has played one game of Age of Steam, about year ago. He was a bit […]

  • Thursday session: Dominion, Container

    After a quick hand of Le Truc with Hannu, Petri arrived and Container hit the table. Petri is interested in modern-day business games and Container hits that niche pretty well. After all, the setting is definitely contemporary and the game is all about buying and selling. This time I managed to avoid embarrassing blunders and […]

  • Thursday session: New England Railways

    My Thursday games started with a quick 2-0 loss in Truc and a four-player game of Race for the Galaxy. It’s been a while since I played Race, but I was in good form and able to win (ok, so we had two newbies in the game). The main course for me was, however, Winsome’s […]

  • Thursday session: Mahjong, Bausack

    Our Thursday sessions have returned to Thursdays! We got our old location back now the university is again open in evenings. Actually, that happened last week, I just missed the first meeting. This time we had a nice turnout, I think we had four tables going on at the same time. My table was playing […]

  • Finncon + Board Game Club: Steam over Holland, West Riding

    I’ve been too busy to write a session report from Finncon. Well, now I have time. I’ll combine reports, as I just returned from our board game club, where I had a rather splendid little session. So, watch out for another blog entry of epic proportions… I played Steam over Holland in both sessions, so […]

  • Thursday session: massive Wings of War, Truc, Masons

    This time we had a slightly larger game of Wings of War: we had nine players and everybody wanted to play. Well, that’s no problem at all, because we had a total of 11 planes available. I had the four from the Deluxe set, four planes from the second series of miniatures, an extra Fokker […]
