Spiel 2017 Anticipation lists and more board game news

And so it begins…

Our second Spiel, our second trip to the European board game Walhalla, our second chance to go deep into the heart of all that is fun at the chaos called Essen.


How are you all doing? We had a rough week with one of the kids being ill and one having her continued trouble sleeping. Before we noticed a week without any noticeable gaming went by. But let’s return to the present, with Essen around the corner, there is a lot going on and a lot of gaming hours on the horizon.

Our own too big and too long list of needs…
