  • Queen’s Necklace, Samurai and Höhlengrölen

    I’ve been busy writing reviews. I have already 91 reviews on my web site — I hear the 100 review mark calling my name already. That’ll take some time, but soon, soon I’ll be there. I’m not going to write long reviews of these games now; I’ll just summarize my thoughts shortly. Links are to […]

  • Christmas games

    I’ve been playing some games with Johanna during the holidays. I wanted to introduce Attika to Johanna. I thought she might like it, the whole constructive attitude of the game. In the other hand, I thought it might be a bit too complicated. It turned out well. We both played a good game (I suspect […]

  • Weekend games: Puerto Rico, Gang of Four

I agree — the rules aren’t the most […]

Queen’s Necklace, Fist of Dragonstones and Gang of Four also have online versions. They aren’t free (dollar a month for each game, it […]

  • Day of Wonder

    I did my first live TV bit today. It was fun, we talked about board games. It was quite light, just five-ten minutes or so and therefore didn’t delve deep into the subject, but still, I had a good time and I think board games got a bit of good publicity. Then I visited Safe […]
