  • Math trade results

    Here’s my side of the recent Finnish math trade: I traded 2038 for Days of Steam Bamboleo for Roll through the Ages Epäillyt for Age of Steam: Disco Inferno / Soul Train Fauna for Santiago Fluch der Mumie for Blokus Hornet for Finca Steel Driver for Stephensons Rocket Some of these trades are better than […]

  • Thursday games: Steel Driver

    An opportunity presented itself… We decided to put Nooa in temporary day care so Johanna could get a break and I could get some board game time. There’s a nice private day care center next to the university where we play, you can drop your kids there for an hour or few. That worked out […]

I mean, there’s plenty of nice stuff coming, but in the end, I don’t really care. I must say we’ve had excellent service on the Board Game Society […]
