  • Two months of games

    Hello there! I thought I’d post an update before Ropecon starts. I’m going, again. Should be fun, this time I’ll stay for the night and won’t spend all my time playing one 18xx game. Anyway, here’s what’s been going on in June and July. Again, a small reminder: this blog has a G+ profile, which […]

  • Thursday session: Golden Compass, Halli Galli Extreme

    After clobbering Hannu in Sunda to Sahul, it was time for Golden Compass. We had full table, four players, and off we went, on our trip to the other universe. The card playing mechanism was definitely more interesting with four players: you really had to think a bit when choosing which cards to take. However, […]

  • Year metric

    I’ve been a fan of Matthew Gray’s month metric. Now I happened unto his Every year 2007 update, focusing on the year metric. I haven’t been bothering with that, believing I wouldn’t have many high-scoring games. Well, I thought, why not — it’s a simple thing to add to my game stats package. I was […]

  • Thurn und Taxis at BSW, again

    After beating Markku from Board Game Society (JoeLamer at BSW, he’s very active in EnglishTown so you might’ve met him) four times in Thurn und Taxis today, I’m starting to think it’s really a pretty good game… Really, to be honest, it’s a good game. It kind of fits in the same group with Web […]

  • Weekend games: St. Petersburg rocks!

    I was in Jyväskylä this weekend and it sure was an interesting weekend games-wise. I thought my mother would like San Juan, because she likes Puerto Rico but it’s a bit too deep for her. She isn’t that into devising strategies and I think kind of plays to keep me and Ismo happy — we’re […]

  • 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 […]

  • Saturday Night Mahjong

    The whole last year passed without a single game of Mahjong! To fix the error, I got a group of people together to play a proper, long game. Ville, Laura, Robert and Ari heeded the call. I think five is a good number of players, even though Mahjong is very much of a four-player game. […]

  • Board game club meeting

    Our board game club had a meeting yesterday. Lots of games were played, which was good. I started the afternoon with Web of Power. It’s one of my favourites, but I haven’t played it often this year. I should, I should… The game was rather exciting in the end. My score depended a lot from […]

  • FinDipCon V: Friday

    I’m back from FinDipCon! It was a splendid weekend of games, even though I’m getting a bit tired of con environment. I guess I just appreciate good food and good sleep too much… Eating too little and randomly and not sleeping well (I slept a grand total of about 12 hours of mediocre sleep during […]

  • FinDipCon

    A reminder for those in Finland next weekend: it’s FinDipCon time! This year the event is held in Helsinki and features the fifth Finnish Diplomacy championship, a Blood Bowl tournament and other minor tournaments — I’m going to participate in the Web of Power tournament. And of course, lots of other games will be played […]
