BoardGameGeek is partnering up with Games Quarterly to sell subscriptions. A portion of your subscription fee goes back to BoardGameGeek to help offset expenses, pay for hardware upgrades, and salaries. So make sure to click through this link if you want to make an order:

https://www.nationalgamesweek.net/aspx/subscribe.aspx

The cool thing about the magazine is that it now includes game expansions! This is a great bargain for people looking to get more expansions for Carcassonne and Settlers of Catan. Previously this was reserved for German game magazines, but now Games Quarterly has them.

The Carcassonne set will be included exclusively in the Games Quarterly #11, available November 8, 2006, courtesy of Rio Grande Games. Also, you get issue #10 that includes "The Great River" expansion for Settlers of Catan.

All you need to do is purchase a subscription to Games Quarterly for $29.50. This will give you a full year of the magazine - four regular issues plus a special issue, and GQM #10 (6 issues total).

Each regular issue will have an exclusive expansion set for a different board game, and international subscriptions are available.

Of course you also get coverage of great games and the people who make them, including board, card, collectible, miniatures, role playing, classic and other types. Games Quarterly gets you the latest on new games, designers' strategy tips and interviews, and a lot more, all about games.

Can we expect that the future expansions will be the ones previously published in Spielbox? And is it possible to get a list of what the future expansions will be?

Will existing subscribers have to pay more for these?

My math is confusing me. Four quarterly issues plus a special issue = 6 issues? I'm not understanding something they are saying.

Was considering a subscription.... glad I procrastinated!

Is there going to be a way to renew a subscription thru BGG so the Geek gets a cut of that too?

I'm surmising that the regular subscription is BGG-friendly, as that is all Aldie posted.

Aldie - Might be worth pursuing the renewal aspect with Games Quarterly BGG could benefit from current subscribers when it is renewal time and could possibly make renewals easier for BGG members.

Just a thought

I, too, have been thinking about a subscription. I hope that we can start seeing some of the interesting Spielbox inserts. I guess I can stand having an extra copy of Fishers of Catan, but I was hoping for the Caravans of Catan (handout at Essen this year).

This is good news on two fronts, though - expansions in every issue and it helps BGG. What more could I ask?

I assume they're going by REFERER information, since I see nothing special about the link that would tie it back to the geek...

Does anyone know anything about the Carcassonne expansion? Here we are about 2 weeks away from release of issue 11 and I haven't heard a peep. Somebody somewhere has to know something. Anyone? Can we have our six magazines be all the Carcassonne issue?

Are you missing something on that URL so they know who to credit with the sale? Do note that if they are using the referer url that not all browsers send that when visiting a different site (for security reasons).

For more info on the two Catan expansions see the two game pages:

The Settlers of Catan: The Great River
The Settlers of Catan: The Fishermen of Catan

And there's a new rumor that the GQM13 (RGG) issue will be:

Carcassonne: Die Katharer (4 tiles for basic Carcassonne)

A retailer I used to frequent gave Games Monthly away for free (because they got 'em for free as promotions). I've obtained 5 issues that way. I wonder if that will continue, now that there is something of intrinsic value inside.

I found out that the stores get the magazine for free, from another retailer (who then proceeded to charge me a buck for my issue). Up until now, the magazine, should have been free (or dirt cheap) because it really has been little more than a press release compendium and catalog for it's member publishers.
