Finnish games now and then - exhibition at Finlayson

Finnish Games Then and Now - 
Rupriikki Media Museum, Finlayson 
June 5 - 10, 2012

The loved and the praised, the forgotten and the frowned-upon: pieces of Finnish game history from the past and the present!

"During the past decades the Finnish game industry has produced a wide variety of multifaceted everyday entertainment. Large media companies and one-man enterprises alike have churned out games ranging from Commodore 64 titles and board games to live action role-playing events and downloadable mobile games. This whole gamut is now available for the public to explore and experience in a unique exhibition where select items from almost a hundred years worth of Finnish games and game design are brought into the limelight. Many of the items on display are also playable!"
