I'm very interested in the article about deck building games. I enjoy the mechanic, but I'm always looking for games that do something different with it. I love the versatility of DC Comics Deck Building Game. Its expansions give you so many ways to play that are each satisfying. Also, Eminent Domain is amazing in the way it blends rule selection and deck building.

Thanks for the new issue. I like the cover :)

Looking foward to reading the surprising origins of seven classic games

I wouldn't pay $4 for a digital magazine, but I might pay $7 for a print magazine if it's good

Interested in the Deck Building article -- I just realized the other day that it's not a terribly new mechanic, existing in some form in War, Egyptian Ratscrew, and President/Shithead.  I suppose the modernization is in choice, a facet those precursor games only thinly allow.

I've enjoyed this in the past, but my digital subscription apparently lapsed and I was never notified, so

I have been looking for a magazine to go along with my new hobby. It appears this one will do the trick, and help me with ideas to bring my family into gaming more. Thanks

I think the articles are getting better.  I'm going to have to seriously consider a subscription.

Glad to see an article diving into the history of classic games. I think it can be fun to learn where games came from and their history. Newer games don't have that.

I read this issue from cover to cover and loved every article. The quality of every issue I have read shows how much you love what you are doing. I cannot wait for future issues.

The deck building article should be interesting as the evolution of DBG's has been fun to watch knowing that they must evolve rather than be deemed a re-skin etc.  I appreciate deck builders personally as they are one of the least "luck based" mechanics in the industry IMO.

I've never been particularly interested in deck-building games before, but I'm looking forward to reading the article and seeing what they're all about.  Maybe I will finally try them out!  :D

The article on Playing for Credit looks very interesting. I've been doing more research lately on the use of games in educational settings and I see quite a potential for them.
