Lots of fun this week!  We kicked things off on Wednesday with some Hive.  Of the two games played, I managed to win one but lost the other.

Although I've said before that I'm not too bothered about whether or not tabletop gaming becomes 'mainstream', it's still nice to see mainstream publications giving my hobby some positive attention.  The Grauniad (also known, less commonly, as The Guardian) has put out another fantastic article on board games.  They've put out a lot of these over… Continue reading The Grauniad Continues to Grok Board Games

Starting a Board Game Collection: Part 2 (Cardboard Boogaloo)
