Hi there friend!
We decided to start delivering weekly board game news - so you don't miss out on anything cool! This way, we can inform you on everything from international board game trends to local Finnish releases and updates from the Poro-crew! In addition, we'll be listing new releases, cool kickstarters and restocks. We decided we're a proper news agency now - so you can of course send us tips on the latest trends! You can reach us on firstname.lastname@example.org - we also accept cat pictures and snack recipes!
Changes in the web shop
in addition to our used board games we've also started selling damaged games! Some games become damaged on their way to us, but even these games deserve a new home! https://poromagia.com/catalogue/category/lautapelit/damaged-board-games_1595/
We also switched up our preorder-system! Our goal is to provide clearer communication regarding the arrival times of our preorders. We decided to use a quarter-based system for the arrival times - you can find more detailed info here: https://poromagia.com/pages/conditionsfi/#ennakot

Other cool stuff
Lately it's been a bit tricky to play with a bigger crew - but fortunately, there's some really good options to in-person playing! For example, Vantaa's city library arranges game nights via Discord every Wednesday in February. These are the games on the table!
The timetable as well as instructions for participation can be found here (in Finnish): https://www.helmet.fi/fi-FI/Tapahtumat_ja_vinkit/Tapahtumat/Etatapahtumat/Etatapahtuma_Etalautapelit_Wingspan(219505)
The city library in Lahti recently announced a game diploma for 2021. The goal with the diploma is to encourage board gaming, and contains a variety of different board games. It's possible to complete the diploma in a group - so this is one the whole family can participate in! The diploma includes games such as Takenoko, Agricola: the Family Game, Wingspan, Caracassonne, Azul, Codenames and Kingdomino.
The full list can be found here: https://lastufinna.lahti.fi/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/Pelidiplomi-2021-_-A5-_-vihkotulostus-VALMIS.pdf

Kickstarter of the week - Agemonia
We strongly recommend that you keep an eye on this new Kickstarter! It's from the Finnish game studio Toad Kings, and features heroes and beasts from the world of Agemonia! Check out the game, and remember to support it on Kickstarter.
PS. The design team features a Finnish MTG-champion from 1998!
We hope you have a good week, as well as good games!
