Welcome to the third and final post in a series of catch-up posts. All of the PNP news from July 2016 through today should now be included in the blog. If I've missed anything, please let me know.

Obviously, doing giant catch up posts is not the ideal way to do this blog. It makes for a lot of work for me and makes it hard for your guys to keep track of everything. With almost 70 games in this post, it's going to be hard to find the games most interesting to you. So my new year's resolution is to get back to a more sustainable timeline on these posts. These giant catch up posts are not sustainable. I'll be trying to keep these posts weekly or every other week as much as possible.

The other thing I've fallen behind on is the sister site on Blogger where I've been publishing interviews. People have submitted interviews that I haven't published yet. I'm going to get all of those interviews published this week and start being more vigilant about posting there as well. There are a lot of design contests going on and I want that site to be a good resource for people to promote their work. My apologies for falling so behind there.

With all the said, there is a lot of news to get to in this post, so let's get to it! Due to the high number of games, I won't be covering PNP design contests in this post. I'll do that in a special post coming soon.
