Big News! Casual Game Insider is Coming to Newsstands Near You

CGI on Newsstands

Forward, march!

The Casual Game Revolution continues onward. We are proud to announce a new Casual Game Insider distribution deal with Ingram Periodicals, who serves over 6,000 newsstands across North America! Some of their key retailers include Barnes & Noble, Hastings, Jo-Ann, Lifeway, and REI. Read the full press release here.

What does this mean for Casual Game Insider? The same boardgaming magazine you know and love now has the potential to serve far more casual gamers than ever before. We are thrilled to reach outside of the usual gaming channels to get in front of a new demographic. It is an opportunity to grow casual gaming in a whole new way, which will be of great benefit to the board game industry at large.

Beginning with the Fall 2014 issue, you'll see a new barcode on the front cover of the magazine, which is required by retailers. We also expect our print volumes to increase dramatically — the exact circulation will be unknown until our first order is received. We will also continue to serve 2,100 game stores and our direct subscribers, as always.

Support us on Kickstarter - July 9

As a crowdfunded magazine supported by the grassroots, we run an annual Kickstarter campaign to gather funds for the coming year of production. The campaign to kick off our third year will begin on July 9, 2014. This campaign is more important than ever, as we are depending on our subscribers and sponsors to help us get off the ground with our launch on newsstands. Please consider supporting the campaign and spreading the word!

The Kickstarter campaign will be at the following URL:

UPDATE 8/5/2014: Our Kickstarter campaign successfully funded, and we have confirmed that hundreds of Barnes & Noble locations and a handful of independent book stores will be selling Casual Game Insider. Look for it after October 10!

I am very happy and excited that the game will be coming out.

Thank you for all you do, hope the contest generates a lot of traffic for you.

Everything that expands the hobby is a great thing!

This is very welcome news. Our growing hobby has space for more hobby-specific publications, and needs the variety that multiple publications can provide. We all win with this one!

I received the digital copy this year, and really enjoyed it.  I will probably get the magazine delivered this year!
