Sometimes we become so comfortable in our community that we miss high-level discussion of our hobby elsewhere. I hope here to collect some of these writings, many of which took quite some work to uncover. The critics and philosophers you will hear from below are (or were) all boardgame enthusiasts. Sadly, mass media such as The New Yorker doesn't necessarily respond well to serious criticism of the boardgame industry, and many writers have since repurposed their efforts into self-plagarizing articles about pop culture.

A bit of Lexis-Nexis digging reveals the original sources for many of these pieces, and I will share some of that with you below. Keep in mind that I have abridged the original texts, as even these shortened versions are likely to strain readers' patience. Enjoy.
