Pegasus

Packet Row was published by Pegasus Spiele in 2013. The game is set in New York in the mid-1850’s. At this time there were so many steam-packets arriving from all parts of the globe, they would be lined up along the docks and thus the area became known as ‘Packet Row’ (Michael Menzel’s superb...
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....
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....
Let's face it, camels are ugly, very ugly. Yet, their very ugliness renders them rather cute and game makers have often remembered this and included their images in games. The Camel (genus Camelus) is known as 'The Ship of the Desert', not because it's humps are full of water but because their body...
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...
Another month goes by. When you are an old man like me, the years  pass by far too quickly. At least, it feels that way. Sigh!!! My normal electic collection of new items this month. Which is not good says Dusa because she feels we have too many "dusty old games" already.  She is right but I just...
October already! Christmas is round the corner. Hard to believe here that a few months ago we were in the middle of a heat-wave. It really was hot, seriously hot. And, in a way, the good weather has prevailed. We go out for walks without a coat. Helga says that she cannot remember doing that before...
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...
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....
So many games in May, I have had to split the articles because of memory problems... Sleuth Schmidt Snoopy Dodgem Game Peter Pan Playthings 1965 Spielesammlung Kaufhof Spiele-Set Arko Spin to Win Spears 1977 Spinner Fun Philmar 1960 Star Wars Adventures of R2-D2...
