  • Board game club session: Struggle for Rome

    Yesterday’s board game club was a bit of a short affair for me, but I got what I wanted: a game of Struggle for Rome, the new historical Catan game. It’s pretty neat game, I think. There are lots of standard Catan elements, but lots of new. The most interesting feature is the way the […]

  • Age of Steam in Pennsylvania

    Yesterday I went to the Board game club with a mission: I want to play Age of Steam! It took some trying, but I got a group of four together to play 1830’s Pennsylvania. It immediately leaped to the top of the ranking: it’s one of my favourite AoS maps. The trick of the map […]

  • Board game club: Terra Nova, Viva Topo!

    Board game club was a big hit yesterday, with almost a record crowd of over 20 gamers. I made a quick visit and had time for just a few games. I’ve wanted to play Terra Nova to get it off my system. Now I tried the game with four players and found out my expectations […]

  • Board game club: Edel, Stein & Reich, Bunte Runde

    Yesterday was board game club day, despite nice weather, sunshine and all. We won’t let that stop us! The turnout was good, three tables going on all the time. I got a nice bunch of people playing with me the whole afternoon with few changes. I suppose I can trust the club goes well without […]

  • Board game club session: Tichu, Gulo Gulo, Attika

    We had a nice board game club yesterday. It was strange to have the club on Monday, not Sunday, thanks to the Easter, but many people arrived nonetheless. Tichu was definitely the high point for me yesterday. After reading Steve’s Tichu strategy article I wanted to give it a go (last time I played was […]

  • Board game club: Fettnapf, Havoc, Klondike, Indonesia

    We had a rather pleasant board game club meeting yesterday. First up was Fettnapf — I wanted to try the correct rules. You see, I was taught it wrong in Essen and as I never even looked at the rules, I never got it right, until a friend of mine did a Finnish translation. Oops. […]

  • Board game club: Fjorde, Neuland, Havoc

    The olympic ice hockey final didn’t affect the participants in the board game club yesterday, we had good attendance. I got to play everything I had planned to, which was nice. While waiting for others to arrive, I played a round of Fjorde with Ilari. It was my first game, but it was a breeze […]

  • Board game club: Antike, Antike!

    Board game club met last Sunday. It was a good meeting, with lots of people, some new faces and active gaming. After a warm-up game of Flix Mix (I’m still unbeaten in this game), we started a six-player Antike. That was one of my main wishes for the meeting, trying Antike with five or six. […]

  • Board game club session: Antike, Caylus

    Yesterday’s board game club session — first and last for me this season, unfortunately — was quite nice. Some new folks, some good games. I started with a quick match of Blockster with Laura. It’s a simple game, played with a bunch of rectangular plastic pieces. Players build a tower. Each turn they draw a […]

  • Board game club: Antiquity and Shadows over Camelot

    Yesterday we played the first game of the much-expected Antiquity. Teaching the rules was fairly straightforward, but I didn’t stress quite enough that Cart Shops were needed to build inns and cities, too, because I think everybody but me fumbled with that at some point. The game progressed slowly. It took four hours, before Robert […]
