This week in review #021
BGG News 08 to 14 September 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 (#020).

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

The TWiR - This Week in Review Geeklists - Announcement thread is where I'm posting from now on, the announcements for the TWiR. If you want to get informed just subscribe it.
