    This week we're talking about tracking our play statistics and board game collections.  What are the various ways we can track our plays?  What is the value of doing so?  What about keeping an inventory of your game collection?  Does it help you keep the collection under control or just make you feel guilty for having too many games?  Can it be both?

    TGT On Topic 244: Story Driven Games

    TGT On Topic 244: Story Driven Games

    This week we're talking about story driven games.  Those games that put story first and mechanics second (or maybe eliminate most mechanics altogether).  How do we feel about story in our games?  Does it add or deter from the meat of the game?  And does all that story keep us playing or scare us away?

    If you want to enter our 2021 giveaway, details are below. And if you're a winner this is the current list of games you get to pick from (more will be added throughout the year):
