I always read the whole issue right when it comes! It's also the only magazine where I actually look at all of the ads.

The article showcasing the games that emphasize 3D made me realize how much I value table presence. Not all games have to make the mechanics in 3D, but a pretty tree in Everdell does attract more friends to the table.

Some decent looking games there; nothing too up my alley so I'd probably skip this one. Quality looks as good as ever!
