Before I joined NSKN I had worked for various marketing agencies for about ten years. I still meet some people I used to worked with back then and when they hear about my industries change they can’t really believe. What? You dumped the agencies for BOARD GAMES? Well, for them it sounds totally abstract and… Read More We Are The Tribe
Moomins is one of my favourite childhood book series. A Swedish writer, Tove Janson, created a whole world full of mysterious creatures and lands. A world so different from our own, so unique, that my childish imagination was thriving with vivid images of the Moomins family, Sniff, Snufkin, Little My and… Hemulen. The latter one… Read More Hemulen Syndrome – collector’s biggest fear
Well, Andrei has already shared his list with you, so I think it’s time for mine. I do play quite a lot. This year I have played so far 831 plays of 382 published games and about 70 prototypes. I am always craving for novelties so I’d rather play a game that I don’t know.… Read More Kuba’s favourite games of 2017
Every more or less crazy (when it comes to board games of course) parent dreams of finding a gaming partner in their kid as soon as possible. In theory it’s rather easy.

I’m not saying it was the smartest thing to do or that he’s been the smartest father ever, but it definitely… Read More Why I play the games I know I’ll hate
I’m sure you know at least one person who came to you one day saying they’d got the job of their dreams. An aviation fan got employed in an airline, a sports enthusiast started working for an illustrated magazine, or a fellow board game geek has finally decided to join one of the publishing teams.… Read More A soul to sell: when hobby turns into fulltime job

In my previous post I have written about games that got expanded a bit… unnecessarily. You might even have gotten the idea that I’m against expansions in general. And that is an absolutely untrue statement. I believe there are games who wouldn’t last long if not for the expansions! Let’s see, how it actually works.
Hi. My name is Kuba and I’m an addict. I need my collection to be complete. If there is a game I own and there are any expansions for it, I simply need to buy them. Even the micro ones.
