Thought others might be interested in seeing an article about the growth of our hobby in a British newspaper. For anyone local to either of them, the cafe and shop Thirsty Meeples and Orcs Nest both get a mention as well.

Indeed...well researched, interviewed some well versed folks in the industry and highlighted many of the reasons for the popularity of tabletop games going forward.

A great read - thanks for posting.

Nice! Good article. Props for Leacock quotes, promotion of Sushi Go! and Codenames, two of my favorite games.

Very nice. It'd be nice to see more of this in the American media instead of the usual tripe about Monopoly.

This came across my Facebook feed, as did a year-old article from The Telegraph about the decline of board gaming
