I definitely think I am a squirrel when it comes to my collection.  No wonder I like the Rolling Dice & Taking Names podcast so much!

I received the new issue and enjoyed learning about Sagrada. It has been on my want list and my interest only increased after reading the article.

I have heard so much about Grimm Forest and Sagrada so it was great to see your coverage of them.  Keep up the good work guys!

Love the artwork.

I really like the layout of this magazine better than many others that I've picked up. It isn't overly cluttered or hard to read. It is actually quite well done!

Curious to learn how one tidies up their games.

I need to read the spring cleaning magazine. I submitted my shelfie separately. The only reason I have more room for games is because we moved  to a bigger house.

Heck yeah!
