On the way home from the board games evening, just after midnight. Hakaniemi’s bright neon lights have never looked so pretty…

Twilight Samurai

Eve & I watched a very good DVD yesterday evening: Twilight Samurai. It’s set in 19th-century Japan and is about a poor samurai. Eve loved the sense of the place and culture, and the wonderful scenery. For me, the best part was the portrayal of the main character, a man much more caring and down-to-earth than the samurai we normally see in films.

Board Games Evening

Yesterday evening we had our semi-regular board games evening, this time at our flat. Unfortunately, I was having so much fun I forgot to take any pictures :(.

Amongst the games we played were Six Nimmt!, Robo Rally, Finstere Flure and Spank the Monkey. (The last is a really poor choice of name for a very decent game, where the players built towers in a scrapyard and try to catch a monkey). My favourite was again Robo Rally – it’s a shame it’s no longer available (and horribly expensive on eBay).
