  • Top 10: 2012 games in 2022

    Looking back at 2012, ten years later, it seems like a decent year. It wasn’t hard to come up with a top ten. My top 10: 10. Keyflower. This is an exciting mix of weird auctions and worker placement, and the game works rather well with the whole range from two to six players. That […]

    Covid-19. The pandemic got better, and I got the vaccine shots. I returned to the board game cafe meetings in June. Things have become much better.

This time I got the Builder + Gu combo and built some craftsmen, but it didn’t work out well. On the other hand, I did make good money with my craftsmen, so […]

  • A small update

    Hi guys, it’s me again. I counted, and since the last update, I’ve played 112 games of over 50 titles. That’s pretty spiffy. I’ve also been rather busy, as you may have guessed. Time to start clearing out the backlog… The City is the cleanest and easiest game in the San Juan / Race for the […]
