  • Dragonball Z preview

    I got a starter pack of Dragonball Z collectible card game — I’m to write a Finnish translation of the rules. The game seems rather daft: the players attack each other until one drops. Or until one player collects enough anger or a complete set of Dragonballs. Still, the about C5-sized rule book has about […]

  • Wildlife preview

    As mentioned before, I bought Wildlife Friday and managed to play it the same night. Here’s my preview, based on that one game. The main reason why I bought Wildlife was the cheap price. Reason why I chose Wildlife instead of other cheap games was mostly the name of Wolfgang Kramer on the cover. I […]

  • Canal Grande preview

    I played my first games of Canal Grande last weekend and here’s a quick review based on those games. First of all, I should say I’m not familiar with San Marco, so I’m not biased either way in that regard. For a start, the cards are very ugly. The backs are hideous and the pictures […]

  • Carcassonne: Hunters & Gatherers preview

Cities have turned in to forests. They are quite similar, however, there’s an interesting incentive to close other people’s forests. If a forest […]

  • Villa Paletti preview

    I bought Villa Paletti, the 2002 Spiel des Jahres winner for few reasons. Biggest one is probably that I happened to see it at a department store when I was looking for a birthday gift for my girlfriend. I didn’t buy it right away, but went back the next day… Also, as it won the […]

  • Tantrix preview

    I didn’t expect to play any games during the weekend (I was visiting my parents, as it’s my birthday next week), but my mother had a new Tantrix set which I had to try. It’s a game of connections. The hexagonal tiles feature coloured lines, three colours each. There’s a total of four colours in […]

  • Die Macher preview

    Finally I have it. I left work earlier Friday so I could run to the post office and get it. I couldn’t wait and opened the game already at the railway station. I couldn’t believe my eyes, I finally had it… I haven’t played it yet, but I think I’ll say a word or two […]
