Is there a way to donate games to soldiers?

Great issue. Keep up the good work.

I had a great time reading the article by Sgt. John L. Carkeet IV. I almost felt like I was there with them.

I do think it is a little odd that Dungeon Roll is once again the cover story, even if this time it is about the expansion.

Looks as though it will be another really  interesting issue.  I am curious as to what the gaming culture in the military is like, now vs. when I was in a long while back.  Might be something I can share with a few other former military friends.

You lost again - another thought provoking and enjoyable article that is not just a game review, but still manages to point out some of the mechanics that make a game.

Nicely produced!

When I was in the Navy many years ago, we played a lot of cribbage, plus I brought Ace of Aces aboard ship.  Curious to know what the modern military is doing

Looks like an excellent magazine.  Thanks for helping out the hobby.

I wish I'd known this existed before! So cool!

Looks good! I look forward to pledging the kickstarter!

I love Dungeon Roll, glad to find an outlet looking into the game. Even though it seemed very popular in kickstarter I don't know many people talking about it or playing it, and it is such an amazing game.

Just found out about this magazine on your Kickstarter page. Glad to know that there is a magazine such as yours on the market. Looking forward to reading about "Gaming in the Military". Keep up the good work. Will probably back the Kickstarter.

I really enjoyed the gaming in the military article. I have a cousin who has just entered the Services and I will be sending him portable games so he can have good experiences, too.

I was fortunate to check out a physical copy from my FLGS last summer. I loved it! The PDF version from the KS campaign was good, but there is nothing like a paper version.

I would like to read the article  "how in-game accomplishments can keep a game fun even when you lose" for some tips on dealing with my daughter who get very upset if she does not win every game.
