  • Gaming year 2008

    So, how was the year? Pretty wild, if you ask me. (See Gaming Year 2007.) Good new games (2007-2008 games) Dominion — Well, I played 28 games of this, and most of them outside BrettSpielWelt. That’s a pretty nice number, considering how late this game arrived. Everybody likes it, or at least doesn’t mind playing […]

  • Thursday session: Dominion, Container

    After a quick hand of Le Truc with Hannu, Petri arrived and Container hit the table. Petri is interested in modern-day business games and Container hits that niche pretty well. After all, the setting is definitely contemporary and the game is all about buying and selling. This time I managed to avoid embarrassing blunders and […]

  • Playing-card review 6: Wilhelm Tell cards

  • Thursday session: Preference, Metropolys, Tarok, Dolmengötter

    Another excellent game session this week! When I arrived, PitchCar sessions were over and people were choosing the next games. Hannu quickly got me and Gargoyle to join him in a game of Preference. Gargoyle was a newbie to this game, but he’s no stranger to traditional card games so he learnt quickly. It sure […]

  • Thursday session: Glory to Rome, Preference, Tarock

    Our Thursday session was on Monday this week. That’s summer for you… I would prefer a fixed date, but sure, it’s pretty hard to fix when people have fluctuating schedules. I started games with a two-player game of Glory to Rome. I’ve now played with two, three, four and five players — that’s fairly rare! […]

  • Russian Preference

    My mother and Ismo were visiting to see Nooa. Well, Nooa didn’t want to sleep before they arrived and we had to put him to bed while they were here, so we entertained ourselves with games while Nooa was napping. I got to clear one game from my “I need to play this list, that […]
