Really like the Board Game myths article, need to add this magazine to my subscriptions

I've enjoyed a few issues from B&N... hopefully soon I'll fit a subscription into my budget.  You hit the exact type of casual, family games that we play so often.

I certainly hope digital boardgaming is not the future!

This looks amazing!  I can't wait for my first issue to come!

Cracking jokes and throwing punches? Count me in! I will definitely be checking out The Red Dragon Inn. This issue sounds fantastic.

Love Red Dragon Inn.  Thanks for the great coverage.

Any chance for CGI to start packaging promos with the print magazine?

Red Dragon Inn is very popular among the kids at one of my game meetups. I've been wondering if there's enough meat there for me to enjoy it as well.

This is a really nice looking zine! I think I am going to start picking it up now.

It looks really nice, but I fear it would be like all my other subscriptions. They just sit there :(

Really enjoy the articles!  Lots of good things in this issue!  Every gamer should check this out!
