  • Train session, Age of Steam Germany and Mogul

    Johanna was having a movie night with her friend, so I invited guys over for a friendly game of Age of Steam. To advance my mission to play all the maps, I chose to use the German map — despite one of the players being a newbie. It was a tough fight. I thought Berlin […]

  • Boardgame club session: Doom, Cluzzle
