  • Lahti board game weekend 2005

    Once again I ventured to Lahti and Peter Munter’s board game weekend. After all, I had to go and rescue my sleeping bag I had forgotten there last time.

    Finnish gamers might want to check out the Lahti-based game store Puolenkuun pelit. Their website has nice, bright colours and perhaps a bit annoying design, but they do have some good board games in stock (however, I don’t know about their level of service; I’d guess it’s decent, at least they seem to have some […]
