This has been an excellent game for obtaining older Quartetts, as you will see in the images below. Especially pleased with Führer und Helden im Welthriege (Leaders and Heroes of the World War. Made in 1914/15 it features German leaders and soldiers. Of course, the Kaiser is the number 1 card....
Only bad news in September. My arthritis is significantly worse and my Tournament Director at both my Bridge clubs has owned up to cheating. I am not angry, just disappointed. He is ranked 17th in the world although I suspect that his ranking will plummet in the next weeks. Sad, sad day. Now to...
After a major re-adjustment I have restored the problems of last month. You may have noticed that I didn't give the game information under each picture of my new games. My designer and I could not find a reason other than I had downloaded Windows 10 and something in that change caused the problem....
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...
Last month I mentioned a new game called Deus, published by Pearl Games. I am glad to say that is very original nice to play. It reminds you of deck-building games like Dominion and Thunderstone but, at the same time, it isn't like them at all. It has a new system which challenges you create an '...
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...
A relatively quiet month. I picked up a few at a flea-market but most of the games came courtesy of my son Peter who lives in Norfolk and visits as many Boot Fairs as he can. As usual, if you want to know more, please ask. Plus: Can anyone explain to me how to make MicroBadges on the BGG. Here is...
These are the games that Card Tower has acquired this month. An interesting variety from the sublime to the ridiculous. If you want to know more about specific games, please let me know. 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea Lakeside 1975  Acquire Selecta 1995 The a-MAZE-ing Labyrinth...
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....
