Tag: Mamma Mia!

  • Lahti Board Game Weekend, Saturday

    After less-than-well slept night (maybe the real-size Space Marine helmets I slept next to haunted my sleep?) it was a new day and new games. The breakfast — eggs, bacon, french fries — was sturdy and sure to clog arteries. That’s just nice. The first game of the morning was a classic — Dragon’s Gold. […]

  • Mamma Mia!

    There’s a review of Mamma Mia! — in Finnish. I’ve grown to like the game a lot. It’s a very unique game and another excellent example of Uwe Rosenberg’s skills as a game designer. I can’t name any games that are like it, and that’s one of the reasons why it’s so good. So, it’s […]

  • 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 […]

  • Wednesday Games III: The Last Panther

    It was a bit quiet day today, as we only had three players. Well, we still played many delightful games. I was eager to try even some of the Mü & mehr games. So, we tried The Last Panther, which turned out to be a nice little trick-taking game. It is also rather nasty game, […]

  • Translations

    For the Finnish readers: I’ve been writing lots of translations lately (that is, all the card games in the order, except Mü). Here are the links: Coloretto, Dia de los Muertos, King Lui, Land Unter, Mamma Mia!, 6 Nimmt!. I’m definitely translating the Mü games as well. Let’s see if I bother to do Amun-Re […]

  • Wednesday Games, part II: Card games

    First: I’m now a proud owner of Sherlock Holmes, Consulting Detective. I got my game from the post office yesterday and I’m really looking forward to an opportunity to try it — it looks absolutely brilliant. Then: we had a very nice game session yesterday. Six players were there, but not at the same time. […]

  • Back home

    Hi, I’m back home. Rome was splendid, I definitely recommend it. Especially if you like pizza and ice cream — last week we mostly ate pizza and the very delicious Italian ice cream. You can get really good pizza in Finland, but Finnish ice cream is nothing compared to the Italian. Of the various sights […]

  • Board game club: Sunda to Sahul, Löwenherz, Union Pacific

    We had another pleasant meeting of the Board game club last Sunday. A typical crowd of about 15-20 people visited during the several hours of gaming. At the best we had three games played simultaneously. As expected, I played Sunda to Sahul — five games, actually. Four of those games were played in a row […]
