Fantasy Flight's Website. Argh! Where do I start? How about some timely updates to the GAME pages. I don't want to scroll through rants to find something useful. Today's complaint is directly related to advertising the new Twilight Imperium, 3rd edition rules, then having a page without the rules when you click the link. Does anybody test this before publishing? Love the games - HATE the website.

Mayfair.

This is probably one of the worst 'professional' sites I have ever seen. I can't get over how gawd aweful it is. Horrible colors, terrible layout, impossible navigation.

I'm sorry, but while FFG may not keep their website totaly up to date, at least you can navigate around it, and at least you don't go BLIND FROM IT'S TERRIBLE DESIGN!! (sorry).

I wish I could just redo Mayfairs site for them. That'd make me happy.

I actually own many of their games (bought longer ago than I care to recall) but I think that they have a viable candidate for the worst website I have every visited of any sort.

Chessex Games. 'Cos they STILL haven't re-released this gem, after telling us it'd be out in 2004...

Be on your guard. There are older and fouler things than Orcs in the deep places of the world.

Rio Grande.

One of the best distributors out there. I own many of their two-player titles and the games and components are all top-notch.

If, however, you'd like some info on their current games or news on what's upcoming, well, they suck...

It looks like someone's Frontpage contracted a stomach flu and disgorged this site.

So as not to be too negative,
Best site: Days of Wonder.
http://www.daysofwonder.com
I love the top banners for each game.

Avalon Hill.

Because there has been no Avalon Hill there since the Hasborg assimilated the company... took a year to get a site up... released a crippled overplasticized version of Cosmic Encounter and none of the essential expansions... and meanwhile, no "W"argames in sight, just clones of Axis and Allies and Risk.

Skip the Avalon Hill site and go directly to the MMP site... which AH still doesn't link to???
