Weekly News


Site News:

We’re back from vacation, over our post-vacation illnesses, and caught up on almost everything! So here’s some fresh news for you, just in time for Essen! (Which, regrettably, we cannot attend.)



Ok, so, there’s not much out there right now, but lots of news is bound to pour out of Essen over the next few days. Stay tuned!

Also, Extra Life is in less than two weeks. It’s for a great cause. If you aren’t participating yourself or contributing to someone else’s campaign, consider donating to our group, the Friends of Galen. 100% of the donations go to the cause, and it’s a pretty good one.


New Games:

Essen will be debuting a number of new games, and we’re keeping out eyes peeled for their detailed announcements.


Other News:

The main Essen-related news thus far is the announcement that Mayfair Games has purchased Lookout Games, the creators of Agricola, Le Havre and others. Hmm…I wonder if an Agricola / Catan crossover will be attempted.
