Great issue. TEG looks great, and Bananagrams is one of my favorite word games of all time.

I like the 'Absence of Choice' article. An historical perspective of board games is a refreshing change from the "Cult of the New" social media hype that pervades so much of the culture of modern board games.

The Tiny Epic games look good. I like that they do not take too long to play.

I see that you also have some info on playing games with variants. I think that could be very nice to breathe new life into a game.
