Holiday Gaming sounds like a very timely article. It's one of the times I get to play a few more games as the kids occupy themselves a bit more. :)

I backed the magazine for its 2nd year Kickstarter campaign, and I'm glad I did. The pdf looks great, and most of the articles are interesting. I wish there were more complete reviews, though. Also it would be nice if the magazine could have monthly issues.

 

Keep up the good work! :)

Can't wait to get my Kickstarter package of Flash Point!!!!!!!

Looks like a great issue.  As always :)
