  • Gaming Year 2010

    Gaming year 2009 wasn’t terrific, but 2010 was. By numbers alone, I played a lot more games than last year. However, the biggest reason 2010 will go down in history as a good board game year was Nooa. I played well over hundred games with Nooa — actually, I played with Nooa about as much […]

  • Children’s games — Das kleine Gespenst and Geisterwäldchen

I got some childish games recently, you know, with Niagara completing the set (I also got CSI: Crime Scene Investigation Boardgame, but that’s another story). Dawn Under is a childish memory game about vampires trying to seek […]

  • 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 […]
