GoteborgsPosten's Yearly Boardgame Reviews 2007
Once a year, the Swedish regional newspaper GoteborgsPosten (The Gothenburg Post) fills their two consumer-pages with board game reviews. Obviously, this is something all newspapers should be required to do by law. Sadly, mainstream media is never really a friend of us geeks. Every year, around Christmas time (apparently, November is Christmas time these days), I have become increasingly annoyed with the lack of serious games in their reviews and even more annoyed with the lack of respect for those that get any attention.Recommend
This year has been a slight improvement. Apparently, some board game geek (bgg:er or not) had some influence over the selection of games. It also appears that the test group wasn't a complete set of morons, although one or two had to be included to make it statistically correct.
Here follows my very first GeekList, with a list of highlights translated by me.
(A pdf of all 37 reviews, in Swedish, if any Swedes have the time to make additions.)
