Port Royal is a card game with some novel ideas. The cards allow to plunder ships, recruit pirates and a few are missions and taxes that are due. The objective is to accrue shields and when a player gets at least 12 Shields, everyone else gets one more turn. After that the player with the most...
                                                             GADZOOKS!! A card game that is complete and there isn’t a Booster to buy for it. It is called PLAGUE & PESTILENCE It is a card game from the USA, made by the charmingly titled publisher, Hilary’s Toy Box. If my memory serves me right...
As usual, I am far too busy to do anything in depth but before I list games received this month, I want to mention a relatively new game, Ulm by Huch!. It came out at Essen last year I believe but we had never heard of it when we were given the game this month. It is very 'Feldian', an adjective...
No time for a proper article this month. I became an OAP in January and now I am being swamped with forms from the Pension Service, partly because I live abroad. But some questions are very difficult to answer. For example: They want me to give all the addresses I have lived at since I first...
Doing a lot of work in September so no time foir a review or similar. A very good friend here has sent me 180kg of catalogues, flyers,  press releases and magazines. They came in 18 boxes that weighed 10kg each. The picture alongside shows some of the distribtion and organisation but I had only...
So, June draws to an end. The weather here in Northern Germany remains extremely pleasant. I suspect the gardeners hereabouts are desperate for rain. As I am going to look at a game in the Wild West, it is appropriate to say that a Red Indian Rain Dance is called for. I have persuaded my squaw to...
I like May. Two Bank Holidays for a start. The weather remains calm and benign. Are we heading for a scorcher of a summer or will fate take a hand and inflict on us a seriously wet and cold summer? The city is full of tourists and it is not even school holidays yet, so firms that organise city...
I hope you all have recovered after indulging in Christmas and New Year. Here at Chez-Osten, all is well. We have joined another Bridge club so we are now playing three times a week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday). Jürgen gave me a nice birthday present, Doe Schlösser des König Ludwig. It seemed to...
Here is the batch of new games that have arrived at chez-Eamon in August. There are so many, I have to split them into two articles. Enjoy browsing and let me know if you would like more information about any game in the listing. My thanks especially go to Rudolf and Gretl who both donated several...
Every month I acquire more games. Some from successful auction bids, some as gifts, some as Fleamarket finds, and so on. The mix is extremely eclectic and I thought it might be an interesting project to do an article each month showing the new arrivals. I intend only showing a scan of the box lid....
