Time to end the hiatus

We’ve gotten into 2015 and my new year resolution is that I’ll activate myself again to write blog posts regularly.  Reason for the hiatus has been clear – I have not been able to play so many games face to face and I’m really not going go to my games online since there’s mostly not […]

Gameweek 42/2013: 6 Nimmt, Ave Caesar, Hanabi and Crazy Lab

One live session at N-BGC and several games online. We began the N-BGC session with 6 Nimmt which was a solid game to wait food and real games. I like 6 Nimmt but have never been any good at it. There aren’t any other game like this (none that I know of anyways) and what […]

Gameweek 26/2013: Augustus, Lancaster and Unpublished Prototype

One live session at N-BGC and many games at Yucata.de plus Midsummer gaming at the summer cottage. We began the N-BGC session with Augustus which I’ve found to be a solid family game. Bingo mechanism which the game is based on works very well and there’s enough options in the game to make it enjoyable. […]

Gameweek 25/2013: Qwixx, Augustus and Brügge
