Time to roll out this 10 year old photo...
Here For You in These Unprecedented Times
The last best-of you need to read in 2015.
Swept from the table.
I'm cooking up a little content for us on what's been a slow week, but in the meantime, I thought everyone would like a gander at Mike's contribution on Boardgame News. He, BGN owner W. Eric Martin, and Ryan Bretsch participate in a great Roundtable discussion about "Gateway Games", what that even means, and whether such a term is even good for the hobby.
Head on over to this link and check it out, it's worth the read.
Pictured are people trying to play a game before hobby gaming really got rolling sometime in the 1970s. Notice that it doesn't look like much fun and I think a guy died. Eurogamers claim that folks that play Monopoly and Risk still look like this. In the first episode of Barnes' Best, a new Cracked LCD feature series, I'm listing my favorite games released before the Beatles broke up and ended Western civilization.
Pictured is a game that did not make the Barnes' Best: The 1970s cut. I didn't want to scare away the sexophobic board gamers, nor the teetotalers who might see this picture and become "concerned" about that Colt .45 spilling onto the board. But hot damn, is this a '70s picture or what?
Spoiler, it’s Root.
It's tedious to go alone.
I got yer stretch goal RIGHT here...
Better than War of the Ring? Yep.
Needs a FAQ.
Wait, before you go any further- go read Alexander Awesome's interview with Bruno Cathala about Cyclades...it ties into my article this week in a way. I bumped off the top spot, but y'all need to go check it out. Second expansion, what?
Newly remastered in High Definition!
WARNING: PRETENTIOUS GAMES WRITING AHEAD
Five years of total bullshit.
Are games art, antiques, and collectibles? Why not!
