OtherWise

J C Lawrence has been running his OtherWise blog in various forms for a couple years now (it was originally hosted on the Board Game Developers Forum). The primary focus is the design and development of his games with a side order of game reviews and mechanism analysis. Posts are erratic but have usually run between a half-dozen and twenty-something per month -- it all depends how how hot the fire is under the current design project. Content RSS and comment RSS are fully supported as well as RSS feeds for individual stories/nodes.

Blog primarily containing session reports and capsule reviews from our weekly get togethers. I am the main contributor, but two other members occasionally post. Hard to believe, but we've been posting regularly for over 4 years now.

Session reports are posted weekly, with the main focus being euro board and card games (there is also a healthy dose of ameritrash, some wargames and a few CCGs). There is also a small amount of gaming commentary and year end reviews (games played, best of, and such).

The whole thing is very basic... no pictures or anything. I do it mostly for my own enjoyment, but I think we have a couple of readers out there.

I don't know about RSS.

Cumbersome

Seth Jaffee maintains this gaming/game design blog; posting erratically about recent gaming, theory of game design, and mostly ideas and design notes for games in development.
