  • 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 […]

  • Gaming Year 2012

    Another year gone. Good years keep on rolling – I rather enjoyed 2011, and have no complaints about 2012. My kids continued to be good playing company.

  • Automobile, Pantheon

    Last weekend in Jyväskylä was unusually active with board games. I had couple of games with me and managed to play several games of Puzzle Strike and some Stone Age, too. Stone Age was a bit of a hit, my mother in particular enjoyed it (like I guessed she would). And why not, it’s a […]
