Would love to see brief previews of articles online.

The tabletop olympics idea is interesting enough, but the content from the preview page doesn't seem to do it justice. Hopefully the article does it justice in the full issue.

The Artisans of Taj Mahal has me interested just of the title alone! For some reason it makes me think of 5 Tribes or Artisans of the West Kingdom

I agree. With everything opening up more, in-person events are a big interest.

Love the magazine! With little time to play so many great games, I rely on CGI as a tool to help educate my customers as well as me on what's new and playable for every age and skill. Thanks so much!
