Board Games Evening at our place

On Tuesday 29th November we had a board games evening at our place.

Cannes

Ukko & Sari playing Cannes. Eve said it started slowly, but became fun once they got familiar with the rules.

Vinci

Michael et al playing Vinci. The game took 3 hours.

Finstere Flure

Ukko makes his move in Finstere Flure. This game is one of our favourites, and always goes down well. Some time we should play with the advanced counters: teleporters etc.

Another game we played was Monkeys on the Moon. It was quite fun, though the theme wasn’t very strong. I’d play it again, but I wouldn’t suggest it myself.

Christmas cake

I baked the Christmas cake a couple of weeks ago. It’s 25cm (10″) in diameter, so plenty for everyone. I wrapped it in foil in an airtight container until I added the marzipan and icing.

Leaving it late

In Helsinki you need to take your small boats out of the water for the winter, or they’ll be crushed by the ice. These people left it a bit late, and had to push aside the ice to make it out to their winter storage yard.

A car outside Eve’s father’s place. Her mother’s car was even more embedded in snow, and I had to dig it out with only a brush. Luckily for me it was Eve who was doing the driving, as we got caught in a heavy snowstorm on the motorway.

In Eve’s father’s inner courtyard, the trees were prettily covered in snow.

Antti & Kata threw a late Halloween Christmas party – lots of great food and good company. Eve & I enjoyed dressing up in our fancy dress costumes.

A few weeks ago it snowed heavily, about a foot of snow in a few hours. This is the view of the snow swirling in our appartment block’s courtyard.
