Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

Next stop Essen!

Published: Thursday 2006-10-19.

Today the international game fair Spiel 06 opens its doors in Essen, Germany. Several new games are published at the fair each year, and after having thought about going for a while, this year we are a couple of board gaming nerds that are going there to see what is going on.

We leave early today and are not returning until Sunday night, and if you look at the overview map it seems like we can use several days to have time to see everything. We will just have to see how much we have time for, the plan is just to be there and to have fun, and to spend some money on new games.

Blir det en uppföljning i bloggen på vilka ev. spel som inhandlades och det allmänna intrycket av mässan? Jag såg att t.o.m. det lokala byggvaruhuset (!) nu utökat sortimentet med en mindre mängd brädspel till utförsäljning, bl.a. något järnvägsspel (?) som jag tror du har skrivit om förut.

Jag har det lite snoigt den här veckan, men jag postade just en inledande rapport.
