I notice the article content is heavily tied to the advertisers in each issue.

Stoked y'all covered abstract games - I've been looking into more of those after getting really into nitty-gritty detailed stuff.

I liked the Kickstarter rundown.  A good reminder to be careful about what you're backing.
