@ Jeff

And that’s why I love this site so much … discover the games I would not have known otherwise.

So keep up your excellent work

@ob1: You know, I’ve come to the inescapable conclusion that there will always be more of every type of media (music, books, movies, boardgames) than I will successfully be able to consume. Researching games for the Updates brings that home in a big way (only ever touched 4 out of the 15 games above) — so I let it inform what I might want to look into in the future. Not every game is going to appeal to every player, but hopefully some will spark interest.

I can’t beleive how much games I missed when on every game update I see that I own any of them ….Perhaps it’s because I am too young (into boardgaming at least)to have seen these games on their release.

I usually keep looking forward, but some of these games may be worth to take a look

@Jeff W The Gnomes of Zurich would like to show their appreciation for being included in this week’s Game Updates. There will be something in the mail for you in acknowledgement of your hard work and hard wiring. (Wait – hard wiring – that’s Hacker a completely different-not-different game.) Don’t spend that stack of tiny orange paper bills in one place!

@Bit: Illuminati is a classic, as it’s been around since 1982 originally (2014 is its most recent printing). It was one of the old Steve Jackson snapcase games that would fit in a large pocket, a bit prone to kingmaking, but still lots of fun to play.

More games! Woo hoo!

Illuminati looks rather amusing. I would enjoy seeing that in action.

Thanks again Jeff!

@ Wind Lane I totally saw the WotC and thought the same thing. It hit my CCG nerve and almost caused a relapse!

“SotM: WotC” mean completely different things to me. Swarm of the Marro and Wizards of the Coast – and all of it ties to HeroScape. 🙂

Wow, several of my games in one update! How lucky is that?! Thanks, Jeff, for adding to the site! I completely forgot about the game Scoville (going on the wishlist) and simply MUST check out other intriguing titles like Pirates vs. Dinosaurs.
