This week in review #014
BGG News 16 to 22 Jun 2008

This is the week as I see it from my spot. You may not agree with me but we can agree on not agreeing with that.

This are the threads, images, flamewars, reviews, session reports, anything and everything that caught my eye around the BGG community during the last week.

Feel free to comment or even add your own picks. From BGG Newsweek Central Headquarters, sit down and have a nice ride.

You are invited to add to this list, pointing to those little things that made the week for you here on the BGG, provided it is on the time frame of this issue.

============================

Thanks to all of you who joined last week on the previous episode of TWiR (#013).

Are you a gronard, a counter-puncher, a wargamer, a Commands & Colors fanatic? Do you love ASL, A Victory Lost, FAB or any kind of, so called, wargame remotely? Are you attracted by Hannibal: Rome vs. Carthage, considering to check all the fuss surrounding Combat Commander: Europe ? Than check this out!! And prepare to blow out a fuse!!! Brilliant work
