At last it is here!
Kalevala: The Capture of Sampo board game prototype has arrived from the print house, and will be shown at the Spiel Essen in Germany!
Tuomas Mansikka had a game he'd been working with for some time and contacted me to help him put the cherry on top. We worked for over two months and had several hours long video chats until last week's Monday the prototype was sent for printing.
The game consists of:
A divider screen to be put between players.
A map to be hung on both sides of the divider screen (similar to Battleship game).
20-page Rule book.
Player aids in two different sizes.
160 different cards with five different backs!
Sampo & Wound tokens and Wind Compass out of cardboard.
Also several beautiful paintings from Akseli Gallen-Kallela (link), Dana Mad (link) and game-icons (link).
Logo, tokens, wreath and map illustrations by me.
The first prototype was printed with my home office ink jet and cut by hand. It was then tested at the local board game café Taverna.
Want to be part of making this game? Mr Mansikka is looking for investors and interested players to try the game out and develop it further. Contact Tuomas Mansikka on his email here.
Ketunretket Järvenpää contacted me on creating them a logo and labels for their natural products. They produce products with dried nettle leaves and seeds, mushrooms, berries and herbs, hand picked from clean Finnish forests.
These products in the above picture are Lingon berry jam, chokeberry jam and chokeberry & blueberry jam! And more products are on their way! :)
You can find them on Facebook and also email them to order yours today!
I have had a saddle chair since 2011 to boost my office work ergonomics. I purchased the Fabello saddle chair from Suomen Satulatuolikeskus Oy and can only recommend them and their products!
Just recently my old saddle chair had begun to make noises like the mechanism was broken, so I contacted the Satulatuolikeskus (Saddle chair center) and they got curious of the problem: after I sent them videos via cloud service, they decided they'd like to do an autopsy on my chair to find the root of the problem. In exchange of the old one, I received a brand new saddle chair in mail with no expenses! <3
I recommend saddle chairs to everyone working long hours in an office for long periods of time. It helps you keep your posture and is easy on the sitting muscles aka. butt and thighs :)
Even the shipping box turned out to be useful; my cat got a new sleeping cave :)
