Is it Spring yet?

February came very stealthily . We've been playing a lot of Rococo since we now own a copy. We just played it again a few days ago with my mother-in-law who seemed to enjoy it as well. I can't wait for my friend Hanna to finish remodeling their house so we can finally start game nights again.

We also got The Voyages of Marco Polo on the table at the in-laws. I played Carprini for the first time(I think). First half of the game wasn't going my way, but I managed to pull a win, after all. What can I say, I still love this game!

We borrowed 7 Wonders: Duel from the library and played, played and played it. Wasn't thinking I was going to like it that much, but should have guessed, knowing how much I love the original one. This library thing is going to bankrupt me, because we ended up buying the Duel, too. It has proven itself though, since my niece Maiju fell totally in love with it and has requested it many times since.

We also borrowed Le Fantôme de l'Opéra, because we like the original Mr, Jack and the New York one. Jani didn't like this one, but I say his opinion is highly influenced by the fact that I won ALL the games we have played thus far. But, I don't think we need this one, I'm quite happy with the ones we have. It was nice to try it, though.

We also bought One Night Ultimate Vampire but haven't tried it yet. My family loves the ONUW games, so we just had to get this.

We have so many games coming from the library that I just really don't have time for work or anything trivial like that I just love games! Sorry for such a short post, just wanted to share these little bits with you guys.

I've been meaning to write here since Monday but oops, it's Friday already. Time flies etc.

Last week was pretty great, despite having awful headaches. I finally got to play my Imperial Settlers: Atlanteans and well, I lost. Go figure... But, I think I was on the right path, getting as many cards with actions that give you points, since all the faction cards give you NONE in the end? I really like this expansion, though it is harder

We also had a Ticket to ride marathon at the in-laws with Ticket to Ride Map Collection: Volume 1 – Team Asia & Legendary Asia, Ticket to Ride Map Collection: Volume 4 – Nederland and Ticket to Ride. I won them all, so I am the reigning Queen

We also got to play Dale of Merchants with my niece Maiju again. I think she has warmed up to it now, and seems to love it. I'm really looking forward to the Dale of Merchants 2 which was announced not too long ago. You can play it standalone or combine with the first one. Yay!

This week I experienced something new to me, something I should have done much earlier. Here you can borrow board games from the library. Well at least in the metropolitan area. I wanted to try it out, but I had my worries. Would the games be intact and have all the pieces safe? I mean people are sometimes jerks. I recently discussed this with a person who works in the board game section of the library, and he convinced me to try. So I borrowed Rococo. And I was really surprised how good the condition of the game was. All the pieces were in mini grip bags and everything looked fine. The box had a small dent, but that's all.

Now I have two weeks time to play the game and if we fall in love with it we can later go to a board game store to buy one, and if we don't, well we won't lose any money. I also reserved other games to try out, so going to be playing Terra Mystica, 7 Wonders: Duel, My Village and Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island soon

I'm so excited!

Even the cold can not stop me from getting new games!

This week has been very cold, around -25 celcius. But yesterday it was only -11c so we decided to venture out and take the train to Helsinki to our FLGS. Because they had Mombasa for a -25% discount! An offer I just couldn't pass. The only problem is that our shelf is completely full, so don´t know where to put it. I guess it´s time to let some other games go.

As I was perusing their shelves, I noticed My Village in the ding&dent section. The box had a small dent in it, but nothing really bad. I've been interested in My Village, as it seems like my kind of game. I never really got into it's big brother Village, but My Village has that cool dice drafting mechanism which I really really like. But, I didn't buy it, because something better caught my eye.

They had changed their layout of the store, so the expansion shelf was in the "wrong" place. But that is why I accidentally saw Imperial Settlers: Atlanteans and immediately put My Village down and grabbed the Atlanteans instead. Because, you know, I needs to haz it!!! As some of you might know, I love Imperial Settlers. I suck at it, but still love it! And the Atlanteans are just so cool. I expect them to be hard to play, but challenge accepted. After leaving the store we went to have some nice hot chocolate to a nearby café. I took a picture of the cover of Atlanteans and sent it to my niece Maiju, who also loooooves IS. I think I don't need to tell you how she replied

Two items checked from my whislist for this year. The items remaining are:

*Bora Bora
I'm not a Feld fan. I'm quite opposite, but Bora Bora just does it for me. Unlike all the others. It's pretty, interesting and I like the theme. Yes, the pasted on one.

*Concordia + Concordia: Salsa
I wasn't really interested in Concordia before Salsa, but (despite it's confusing name), I think I would really like it.

*Rococo
Rokoko seems like a very interesting set of things. Some deckbbuilding, area control and set collection. I'm not sure how my husband would like the theme, but I hope the historical look of it would be appealing to him.

*Abyss: Kraken
I love Abyss so this is a must buy! Need I say more?

*My Village
I'm now pretty sure we would like this game. And even more sure that my friend Hanna and her boyfrend, who we play games regularly, would love this.

*Terra Mystica
This is a beast! I mean the box is quite big and heavy. But Jani promised me that if I ever see a good discount, this shall be mine! Will this be the year?

*Signorie
This one I'm not quite so sure yet. One of the designers co-designed Kingsburg(heart) but the look of this is so...beige. If I have one problem with What's your game?, it´s that their games tend to look not pretty. I'm not saying they look ugly, but they could make them look more pleasing to the eye. If I'm going to spend a lot of my time looking at a board, I'd rather have it pleasing than not.

Now all I have to figure out is, which games are going to leave to give space for these other ones.

Altered plans and the New Year's Eve Game-a-thon.

Miira Auroora

mbmbmbmbmb
Last week we were supposed to go to a friend's birthday get-together, but alas, she and her boyfriend got really sick, so they postponed. Suddenly we had a day to ourselves without any plans. Luxurious I'd say. We went out for some pasta and came home. Didn't want to tell anyone that we suddenly were available.

My husband wanted to watch a game from TV(huge surprise there), and in the meantime I took Madeira out and set it on our kitchen table. It barely fit, since our breakfast table is quite small, but I like playing in the kitchen, so I wanted to try if I could fit it all there. I had read the rules about four times, so I was pretty confident I could easily teach him the game. The first words he said when sitting at the table, were "This looks complicated."

Well, honey, you had it coming since you bought the game for me!

Actually, when I had explained the rules and given out some strategic pointers, we got to playing quite fast. There are a lot of pieces in Madeira, but it all makes sense to me, the decisions are sometimes tough and your brain will burn, but we thoroughly enjoyed it. This is our type of a romantic evening.

On Thursday we had our annual New Year's Eve Game-a-thon. Me and Jani, my sister Minna and her husband Jukka, with their daughters Aino and Maiju gather together every New Year's Eve to play games, enjoy each other's company and eat unhealthy foods. Everyone can pick up to two games which we'll try to get played, and never succeed in getting them all hit the table.

Our first game of the evening was Legendary Encounters: An Alien Deck Building Game which was my brother-in-law's choice. Maiju didn't play with us because she had stomach issues and her medicine for it took some time to work. And the game only plays up to five, so someone would have anyway had to sit this one out. We chose to play the first scenario because of its straightforwardness, because my sister hadn't played the game before. We were going pretty well until the third objective when all hell broke loose. Needless to say, we lost the game. It was pretty fun though.

Next up was Aino's choice One Night Ultimate Werewolf Daybreak. As a family we play A LOT of bluffing games. We love lying to each other we played tons of this, and I forgot to take pictures and to log the games. I was busy having too much fun.

After laughing for about an hour, why stop? Next we took out Telestrations. I had some really tough words that were hard to draw, but that didn't really stop me from trying. A butt turned into baggy pants, a jar of honey into pizza dough, fire alarm into people running away from Godzilla. You know, the usual stuff.

When we had finished Telestrations their dog needed to be walked, so we had a small break, during which some of us played some Coloretto. Their dog gets really agitated because of fireworks so they try to get her walk done before anyone starts firing.

We then played a game of Concept. Risky business, but I think all relationships endured. I'm quite sure my brother-in-law hated it, though.

Then it was dinner time, which meant French fries with all sorts of condiments and salads etc. Shortly put, junk food.

We continued our gaming session with Spyfall which was Jani's choice. More bluffing! At one point I was pretty sure there were three spies, because people kept answering really weirdly, and then they all started to suspect me, because my answers differed from theirs, but I was not the spy. Turned out we all had different opinions on garages... Jani was the spy thee times in a row and that became the running joke of the rest of the evening. Even in games where there were no lying involved.

Maiju had chosen Loony Quest, which she got from us as a birthday present. Aino didn't play with us because she's not a big fan of the game. Humbug! It's awesome! We all enjoy video games, so I guess Loony Quest appeals to that side of us. I usually am pretty good at this, but apparently everyone knew that and I got hit with bananas and mosquitoes a lot. Doesn't really matter, it's just a fun game.

When we finished it was almost midnight so we popped the champagne and then continued to have the last game of the evening, my choice Mascarade. This was my high point of the evening. I just love Mascarade. The art is so beautiful and it plays better than Coup, because of no player elimination. My other game would have been Ticket to Ride Map Collection: Volume 1 – Team Asia & Legendary Asia but everyone was too tired for that at that point.

The next day we played some more Spyfall and our annual play ofLord of the Rings with Lord of the Rings: Friends & Foes. I wish they would reprint the Lord of the Rings: Battlefields but I'm sure they never will. We lost the game, as always. It's not the goal that matters, but the journey. Which in this case got stuck in Helm's deep.

All in all, I think we had a great game marathon, and it was a fitting end to the year.

My Fifth Anniversary in BGG is today.

I'm not much of a reviewer. Other people find better words to describe games and give analytical thoughts on them. I go on by my gut feeling. I either love a game or hate it. I have no need to analyze it further. So 5 years and 0 reviews written by me.

I suck at geekmodding because I don't have the heart to decline someone's photo, even though they had uploaded ten similar ones prior to that.

I don't have enough witty ideas to make geeklists that have entertainment value, so why bother? One could say I'm a pretty bad contributor to the Geek.

The only thing I have created is this blog. A blog about my life, the people I play with and me trying to share this wonderful world with my loved ones.
And it is very important to me, because it's my self confidence exercise. I'll tell you why, if you have a few minutes to read, and don't mind non-gaming related stuff.

Since I was 16 to my early 20s I was very social and had many friends. And by many I mean about 30-40. I've always had that nice girl syndrome, that meant I was there when a friend needed a shoulder or help. But what happened about 8 years ago, was something that made me question people's loyalties. At first just a couple of my so called friends, but after a snowballing effect, I was at a situation where I wasn't sure who to trust anymore.

This led me be what I am still today, having hard time to make true new friends, because I constantly wonder if they have ulterior motives. So how does writing a blog about games have anything to do with this? Because writing something about myself and my life leaves me vulnerable and open. The Internet gives people anonymity and "allows" them to be jerks and act badly. And by subjecting myself to the possibility that people are rude, I have to make myself trust that others will be nice. Trust that I matter and am a good person, no matter if others might not always be.

I still get a bit nervous when I post a new one, wondering if I get snarky comments or someone complaining about something I said. But it's getting easier. My heart doesn't jump so badly anymore when I read those comments. So I wanted to thank everyone reading this, it truly matters to me.

I'm quite happy in my current life situation. I have a great husband, loving family, a few good friends that have stood with me all these years, and I believe I have made new ones through BGG, even if not face-to-face. 2016 is hopefully going to be a good year. I hope you are there to experience it with me.

I wish you all a very Happy New Year!

This is the post where I tell you what I got for Christmas.

It is customary at this time of year to gloat about what wonderful gifts one received, and I wanted to join the club. I often buy games to friends and family members as gifts, and I think those gifts also come with a gift certificate for time spent together. Which is why I play games. To spend time together without watching TV.

Sometimes I'm lucky and and get a game or two myself, which happened this year. Games are the only thing I ever wish for as gifts. This year only my husband read my wishlist, which wasn't surprising. Oftentimes people don't like to buy stuff they aren't into themselves, so I get a lot of wool socks and dishes instead. Which is fine.

I did buy myself one game, Dale of Merchants, because I was buying it for my niece Maiju too, and it was so cheap. Dale of Merchants was a Kickstarter project which I initially ignored for a long time, because I don't do Kickstarters. But it eventually hit the stores and some people spoke very highly of it, so I caved in and had a look. Dale of Merchants is a deckbuilding game, with cute art and the gameplay is fast, because it's basically a racing game. To win you need to be the first player to build 8 market stalls. No point calculation at the end.

We really enjoyed playing DoM with my niece, but I don't think it made as big of an impression as Star Realms did last year.

My husband was kind and got me two gifts, Dungeon Petz: Dark Alleys and Madeira. I really love Dungeon Petz, so the expansion was welcome. New petz! We got this to the table on Boxing Day and had a blast.
Madeira was a HUGE surprise. I was sure he would get me Concordia or Imperial Settlers Atlanteans. Madeira is very heavy game, so I figured he wouldn't be interested in playing it with me. Apparently I was so wrong. I guess I have trained him well. Luckily I had saved Madeira: The Harvester that I got from Spielbox ages ago. We didn't have time to play this yet, and seems I'll have to wait for it because of lack of time, but it's alright. I can wait.

In return, I got him Pandemic Legacy: Season 1 since the original Pandemic is by far his favorite game. I'm hoping it will be an enjoyable experience for us. Not expecting it to be the greatest thing since butter.

We also gave ourselves a new Coloretto as a stocking stuffer, since it was on our FLGS advent calendar very cheap and our old one is in really bad shape. As a surprise this new version came with some expansions we didn't have. We got my husband's mentally disabled sister a game called Hooop! which I knew nothing about, but it looked like something she would enjoy. The game turned out to be by Adam Kałuza and a great family game to boot. As a blind buy, I'd call it a win!

My next gaming related happening is when we have our annual New Year's Eve Game-a-thon. Everyone gets to pick two games that we'll play. There's six of us, so 12 games! What to pick? I was thinking maybe Ticket to ride Team Asia? Haven't played that in a long long time. I still have a few days to decide. I also promised to bring a few games to a friend's birthday party on Wednesday, but the other guest have babies, so it's unlikely that any game will hit the table. We probably won't even stay there for that long, if the conversation is all about babies and diapers.

I wish you all Merry Christmas and very Happy New Year!

So here I am, on our couch wearing my pink jumpsuit, under a neon colored blanket that has owls printed on it. This has been going on since Monday. I believe they call it the common flu. That or either I ate a cactus.

Apparently last weekend was too much with two birthday parties and one Independence Day family dinner. I did manage to play Small World Underground with Small World Realms on Sunday, even though I was feeling under the weather already . Realms gets on the table rarely, because people don't like the setup, but I don't mind. We played one of my favorite scenarios with the impassable inner seas. Sorry I can't remember the name right now. I think the scores were Maiju 99, me 93 and Jani 88. At least I came in second!

I've been reading about My Village and am quite intrigued. I didn't really like the regular Village, though I have not experienced the expansions, so take that as you will. My Village looks to be more than just Village: The Dice Game. But I shouldn't be thinking about new games for myself at this time of year.

Which is why I shouldn't spend my time reading the forums of Mombasa. But you people made me do it!

I also read about Arctic Scavengers: Base Game+HQ+Recon because Jani likes deckbuilding and I wish it would snow finally. Doesn't feel very Christmassy when it's dark and muddy and wet outside. Arctic scavengers seems pretty easygoing with some player interaction. I think he would like it. He loooooves snow!

Speaking of Christmas, tomorrow is our gingerbread baking day when we bake, decorate and listen to music and sing along with my sisters and my nieces. I should have gotten the Carcassonne cookie cutters, but totally forgot to. They would have been nice.

I'm sorry this weeks post was basically about nothing, maybe next week I actually got to play something.

Oh, and I'll just leave this here:

Is this how being addicted feels like?

Monday night game group was fun and sort of a fiasco. See, I introduced Mysterium to them, and that's it. We never got to any other games, games like Marco Polo or Deus, that I had also with me. They loved it so much.

But I did get my The Voyages of Marco Polo fix on Tuesday, when we played it with my mother-in-law. She and I whooped my husband's ass by over 20 points. We had the exact same amount of points and were tied even after the tiebreaker. This game is so good I keep thinking about it even while sleeping.

I also taught Puerto Rico to her, which I think she learned pretty well. We actually ended up playing until midnight, and I honestly didn't realize the time had flown so fast. Needless to say, I was pretty tired the next day, but who cares.

On a more serious note, sleep is actually extremely important to me, because of my epilepsy I need more sleep than the average adult. But sometimes it's hard to say no when you have a great game on the table with people you love gaming with. I did pay the price, though, as the rest of the week I was really tired and had trouble sleeping.

Yesterday I went to a store where I had a gift certificate to, and bought some stuff for home. I had 30€ left of it after all other stuff, so I went to have a look of their toy and game section. This is a sort of high-end store where I usually refuse to go, but since I had that gift, I went anyway. I wasn't really expecting they'd have anything remotely interesting in their game selection, but I ended up getting Lord of the Rings: The Confrontation (Deluxe Edition).

I'm a Tolkien fan, and one of the games that really had an impact on me years ago, and started this gaming addiction, or at least sealed the deal was Lord of the Rings by Reiner Knizia. This was fifteen years ago when I was fifteen We actually still play that game every New Years and I'm really sad I haven't been able to get the battlefields expansion for it. I have the Sauron one and Friends&Foes. It's not even that great of a game, at least any more, but it has sentimental value for me. I guess I'm hoping that LOTR:Confrontation is at least as good as that. Even though they are very much different.

I got to play Confrontation today with my niece Maiju and I lost terribly as the Fellowship. I felt really bad for my little hobbitses. Next time I want to try the variant characters, there seemed to be quite many interesting ones. I'm hoping to get a rematch on Sunday when we have a family dinner celebrating Finlands Independence Day.

I wish you all a great weekend! Games, games and more games.

The lesson of the week - Married couples should not play Concept together.

Miira Auroora

flag msg tools
mbmbmbmbmb
My gaming week started on Tuesday with a relaxing 2-player game of Tzolk'in: The Mayan Calendar with my niece Maiju, over a cup of hot chocolate coffee. And truly it was just what the doctor ordered. I was pretty tired from having to run errands on Monday, which is usually my Funday as I do not work on Mondays, but alas, my in-laws needed help so that takes precedence over a lot of things.

On Wednesday I got to teach The Voyages of Marco Polo to my mother-in-law. As I suspected she really liked it. We definitely need to play it some more with her, so she can fully understand the strategies involved. They just bought a new dining room table which seats 8, and it is perfect for playing games. And dining, of course.

We also did a fast run by Lautapelit.fi store in Helsinki earlier that day. We wanted to get Mysterium before Christmas, and since there is a postal worker union strike at the moment, we didn't want to risk it by ordering it online. I think Mysterium would be fun with the family during the holidays. I also got the Finnish second edition of Puerto Rico which has the expansions in it. So, basically like the anniversary edition without the metal coins. We actually never owned PR despite it being almost a classic by now. I'm really looking forward to trying the expansions and i have a feeling my mother-in-law would like the game very much. I did have Concordia in my hands at one point(and man is the box size really weird), but decided to wait if maybe Santa brings it to me. I did after all write it on my list that I "accidentally" left on our kitchen table.ninja

On Friday I remembered I had a -20% discount for one game or toy from a local supermarket that was about to expire, so I went to have look at their game shelf. I settled on Concept. Seemed like a good choice for the holidays, too. It was that or New York 1901.

We had a small game night scheduled for Saturday with my nieces, and they requested both Mysterium and Concept. Everyone loved Mysterium. Should have guessed they would, since they adore Dixit. I thought playing the ghost was really fun. Sometimes I had to hide behind the screen, so my facial expressions wouldn't give out any clues, when they weren't understanding my clues AT ALL.

After many games of Mysterium we broke out Concept with some house rules. No teams, points go the player who guesses and one point to the clue giver. This is clearly not a game for married couples. My husband got really agitated at one point when no one had any clue what he was going for, and clearly it was my fault and then I got angry at him for making so bad clues. But we managed to get through it without any throat punches.

Our last game of the night was another game of Tzolk'in with 3 players. This time it was really close. We did give Jani some strategy pointers, since it was his first time playing it. And I came dead last. Shouldn't have given him any tips after the way he treated me in Concept. sauron
But anyway, I loooove Tzolk'in. I'm so happy to finally have it in our collection. Really like how the gears reduce the bookkeeping. Think about what it would be like to have to move each pawn every round one spot further. The game would take ages to play...

I hope you guys had a great week and weekend!

What, there's only 7 days in a week?

Miira Auroora

I'm quite sure this week had something like 12 days. Give or take.

This week was really exhausting both physically and mentally. And to top it all off, we heard today morning that my father-in-law was taken to a hospital last night, because he suddenly lost sight in his right eye. We don't know anything yet but I hope everything's going to be fine.

But this is supposed to be a blog about board games, so let's begin.

On Monday I was able to sneak in a game of Flash Point: Fire Rescue with Flash Point: Fire Rescue – 2nd Story expansion. This was part of our 10x10 challenge and since apparently I can't count properly, we were missing one play.

It was a 4-player game, and I chose the hazmat specialist. Things started pretty easy, until a series of explosions caused the house to collapse upon us.


Son, get your ass off the floor! This house is gone!

I also got to play two games of Imperial Settlers with Imperial Settlers: Why Can't We Be Friends and lost both of them. First as the Romans and then as Barbarians. yeah, wasn't my best day of the week.

But, I did get my rematch of a rematch playing Seasons and I won! \o/ and by 20 points or so. I just love Seasons. I replaced my sleeves for the game awhile ago because those penny sleeves didn't cut it anymore, since Seasons gets played moreoften now.

We sold our Arkham Horror plus three expansions, because Eldritch is enough of that type of game. Now there's more room in the shelf! I've been looking into Concordia thanks to Mina's excellent review on Concordia: Salsa. ( So, If I end up buying them I'll blame you! ❤️)

I've been fine tuning our collection a bit since now we have a group that meets more regularly, so I can count on games getting table time on a regular basis. I haven't actually played with my old group for over a year now. And while that is sad, I really like how this new group is more active and reliable. And they are open to some heavier gamers too, which wasn't happening with the old group.

Having said that, you know I'm not a heavy gamer. I think the heaviest game in my collection is Dungeon Lords. I prefer light to medium weight games, because they are more likely to get played in our house. But, for some reason, call it brain hemorrhage if you will, I've been really really really interested in Madeira for quite awhile now. I don't know what it is! Sometimes I indulge myself and go watch play-through videos or reviews of it. A girl can have dreams, right?

And my dear husband Jani promised me that if I ever happen to find Terra Mystica at a reasonable price, he will play it with me. I guess it means he is now more open to heavier games than he was before. Which I suspect is the result of him having finally gotten help with his sleep apnea. He is way more energetic now that he sleeps better.

Well, not all was crap this week as it seems.
I hope you guys have a great upcoming week!
