  • Acquire, Age of Industry, Pantheon, Oregon

    Biweekly recap time. Acquire. More Acquire. This one turned out to be a big hit. I sure don’t mind. Won’t be surprised if this hits ten plays this year. Suggest. Age of Industry. I’ve known that Brass is something I should be interested in. Hannu has had Age of Industry since it was published. How come […]

  • Shopping – final list

    Here’s what I ended up getting this season: Winsome Essen set. Almost missed this, but fortunately everything’s now secure. I’m most interested in SNCF, which should be sweet, but Texas & Pacific is also interesting. West Riding Revisited less so, as I didn’t fancy the old West Riding and I don’t really need more long […]

  • Shopping

    I’ve started the Fall game shopping season. So far I’ve got copies of Dominion: Prosperity and 7 Wonders coming as soon as the Finnish editions are available. These are must have, and fortunately published by friendly folks at Lautapelit.fi. No trouble getting them, that is. I’m sort of tempted by the limited edition of 7 […]

  • Shopping news

    With more information, I’ve been able to drop both Age of Industry and Workshop of the World off my shopping list. Always nice when that happens before I buy the game… Age of Industry is locally available and the local folks played it, clocking in at three and half hours. No thanks. Even pushed to […]

  • Shopping list

    I’m not interested in buying lots of games, but as time goes by, my list of games I’d like to get slowly grows. It’s now big enough for a blog post… Samarkand: Routes to Riches is the new Queen-produced family version of Winsome’s Age of Scheme. I’ve missed Age of Scheme, but it sounds like […]

  • First impression of Cannes

    I’m mostly price insensitive when it comes to board games. I’ve learnt a long time ago that low price doesn’t make a weak game any better. If a game is interesting enough, I’m ready to pay a lot for it. However, I can appreciate a good deal when I get one. Three euros for a […]

  • Interested in new games

    I’ve been living in a gaming void… Excluding the play-by-web games, the Bezique match is the only game I’ve played since Anni was born. It’s still a bit hectic to go out and play, but it doesn’t stop me from thinking about games. I’ve found Günter Cornett’s Greentown and I’m seriously thinking about buying it. […]

  • Thursday session: Riichi again

    After a quick round of Da Vinci Code, it wasn’t hard to get a Mahjong table going. There were more than four interested players. We used the new set I had bought. It’s a cheap set, made in China but Japanese in style. That means it’s small (the tiles seemed very small the first time […]

  • My latest project: Board Game Auctions

    I came up with this idea of creating a site for board game related eBay auctions. It took me quite a while to get the thing up and running, busy as I am these days, but finally — after some pruning of unnecessary stuff — I got to a point where I can just publish […]
