  • San Juan

    I wrote a review of San Juan — in Finnish, as usual. San Juan is a brilliant game, which I like a lot (as you might have guessed already). It takes Puerto Rico and creates a fast-moving and entertaining card game out of it. Enough mechanics are retained so that the game feels the same, […]

  • Weekend gaming session, Saturday

    Saturday was a fun-filled day of gaming as well. Tommy’s brother Miikka joined us. He’s not a gamer the way we are, but likes to play games. We kicked the day off with a four-player game of Attika, a well-known favourite. It was a tough match, which I was finally able to win by connecting […]

  • Weekend gaming session, Friday

    I’m here at Tommy’s having a wonderful little gaming weekend. Today’s cast included Tommy, me, Stefu and our crippled American reinforcement Phil. We started it off in a light-hearted way: playing few rounds of the semi-legendary Loopin’ Louie. It’s a children’s action game, where a guy flies his motor-driven airplane in a circle trying to […]

  • More San Juan

    I’m back at BrettSpielWelt, it seems. The new user interface changes have made it more pleasant to use, so I might start visiting the place more often. Today I popped in three times. First time all I played was two rounds of Lost Cities. It was bit quiet and also the server restarted right after […]

  • San Juan learning experience

    I did get to play San Juan after all! Gameblogger was kind enough to teach me the rules — it’s an easy game, if you already know Puerto Rico. In return, she did get probably one of her easier victories… I lost dramatically, but I didn’t quite figure out what my buildings did (I didn’t […]

  • Need for games

    I don’t really want new games right now. I’m somewhat unaware of the new Nürnberg titles — I know names, but little else. I know I want San Juan (and I have already made plans to get it without paying) and Hansa certainly seems to combine many positive aspects in one game, but that’s it. […]
