    • Monopoly Gamer
  • Board Game Gluttony. It has been an amazing decade for the board game hobby with games being developed and sold on the market as fast as they can be silicon valley in the 1990's. Have we become too critical of board games? I see posts on a hourly basis on Facebook of people poo-pooing almost every game that comes out....but rewind the clock 20yrs and we would be happy for any new game to be released. Do we have too much of a good thing going right now? PS You Guys Rock!! (Submitted by: Mike)


  • Should reviewers be more critical of games, or at least review more games they are (or would be) critical of? Seems like every review I go watch is a positive, and tells you to go get or check the game out. (Submitted by: Jerome Nowak)


  • What's a bad movie or TV show that would make a good board game? (Submitted by: Jeff Reed)

  • How much goop do you put into your hair to get it to stand up so well? (I put a hell of a lot & mine doesn't stand near that tall) (Submitted by: Brandon @ brawling brothers)
  • What do you think about Euros? Simple question 😜 (Submitted by: Michael Kahrmann)
  • What's one thing you wish you knew when you started the hobby? (Submitted by: Levi Thornton)
  • How soon, if ever, do you think board gaming will become a mainstream hobby? As in, everyone knows about it even if they don't participate. (Submitted by: Crystal)
  • Is Gen Con too big? (Submitted by: Cromusz)
