  • Puerto Rico at BSW

    It’s been a while since I last visited BrettSpielWelt. Today I did go there and ended up in a game of Puerto Rico. That’s fine with me, though I’d like to try games like Yinsh, Tongiaki or San Juan. However, I don’t know the rules and I’m too modest to ask someone to teach me […]

  • Puerto Rico at BSW

    It’s been a while since I last played at Brettspielwelt. Today I decided to check it out. After wondering about the new interface (as reported by Gameblogger: Bye Bye Blue Ball), I got into a Puerto Rico game. It didn’t go too well for me. I lost the game, with scores of 50-51-59-69. My critical […]

  • Quality Games Weekend: Attika, Puerto Rico

    I was in the Jyväskylä last weekend and as usual, played some games while there. The winner of the weekend was Attika, without a doubt. I expected it to sink in well and it certainly did. First time we played on Friday, my mother and Ismo wanted to play another game, and another game after […]

  • Weekend games: Puerto Rico, Gang of Four

    I was in Jyväskylä meeting my parents last weekend and games were played, as usual. The boys weren’t home this time, so I chose more adult games that would work with three. Well, youngest of the boys was around enough so a game of 6 Nimmt! got played. Another fairly typical game choice was Puerto […]

  • Puerto Rico strategy

    Jim Campbell has written Large Warehouse of Puerto Rico Knowledge, an excellent Puerto Rico strategy article. Even though the article is truncated at the end, it’s still a very good and useful read for anyone who wants to reach a higher level of Puerto Rico knowledge.

  • Weekend games, Sunday

    Sunday began with a game of Mamma Mia! with the kids. They’ve become fans quickly, I guess I’ll just have to keep on taking the game with me from now on. I’d also throw a guess that it’s going to appear on the next Adam Spielt order, too… Land Unter, here are the kids. Kids, […]

  • Weekend games, Saturday: Monopoly, Puerto Rico

    Saturday began with a surprising game choice: Monopoly. I’ve been wanting to play it for a while now and finally I got the opportunity. I played with Oskari and Severi. Oskari was the first one to be dropped out, when he went bankrupt on my houses. I got a nice bunch of mortgaged properties, most […]

  • Weekend games, Friday: Puerto Rico

    My trip to Jyväskylä went well. My brother picked me up from the busy railroad station and gave me a lift to where my mother and Ismo live. Before he left, we played few games of Battle Line. Which was nice, especially as I won two out of three. Balloon Cup was fairly popular game […]

  • FinDipCon V: Sunday

    Sunday came after another badly-slept night. This time I was able to sleep an about hour longer than last night. I went to eat breakfast at McDonalds, as that was the only thing that’s open at 9 am Sunday morning. This is not a food blog (I had one, but it’s a bit dead right […]
