  • 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. […]

  • Games with my son

    My son has become my most regular board game opponent. We often play in the mornings: on weekends and on schooldays when his school starts on 9. He’s eight years old, and quite the gamer, and here’s what we play now: Agricola — We play the family game, and recently started using the Farmers of the […]

  • Good offers

    As much as I wish to support the local game store, there are some offers you just can’t afford to miss. Ta Yü is a really good game that’s been either too expensive or hard to get. Now it’s neither, as just about every German online store is unloading it at 19.90 euros. Go grab […]

  • Lost in the valley with no shopping

    We played Lost Valley after a while. This time we both explored the same side of the river, which made things a bit more interesting. Johanna’s fear of getting locked in the same two strategies was reduced, as she had a good time hunting animals and stealing gold from my mines. I played real idiot […]

  • Lost Valley — river gold rocks!

    We played our third Lost Valley match today. Johanna did the impossible: she won with river gold only! It’s the only thing she could’ve done, too, because she didn’t get a single mountain on her side of the river. It was pretty neat, but also quite close. She had just 15 pieces of gold on […]

  • More midsummer games: Lost Valley, Street Soccer, Memoir ’44

    Next day after our Lost Valley game, Johanna wanted a rematch. That’s remarkable! I was more than pleased to play the game again. It was fun — this time we explored the whole of the valley. In the end Johanna won with a healthy margin — I wasted my time with river gold. After the […]

  • Midsummer games: Industrial Waste, Cosmic Eidex, Lost Valley

    I met the Ollis Thursday for some games. It was a fairly monotonous event, with only two different games played. It’s not a big deal, since the games were excellent. I’m really growing fond of Industrial Waste. We played three games, once with just Olli M. and me, twice with three players. It’s fast, too […]

  • 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 […]

  • Lahti board game weekend 2005

    Once again I ventured to Lahti and Peter Munter’s board game weekend. After all, I had to go and rescue my sleeping bag I had forgotten there last time. For the record, it didn’t survive: Munter’s dog (a huge Great Dane, and I’m not talking about Mik Svellov now) had eaten it’s storage bag. Munter, […]
