One of the best mass-media features on games I've seen. Accurate, informative, interesting, and not a hint of condescension.

I read it in the paper this morning. It looks really nice with big pictures and it takes up most of two pages starting with the front page of one section of the paper. Occasionally they have articles about board games and always mention Game Night Games in Salt Lake.

However, this time I saw one little mistake. There is an info box that doesn't show up in the article online. It says that if you want more info to go to www.gameboardgeek.com so they messed up the URL here. Bummer.

Man, that site is awesome. Perhaps I should spend more time there instead of here.

That is a strange mistake to see from Carma (the author) because I know she visits BGG for additional information on the games. I often hear people say "game board" instead of "board game". I am guessing an editor got ahold of the piece and made this mistake.

I checked both google and yahoo searches. Google had a site with that name that is mostly a list of links to vendors. Yahoo however has two links to BGG right on top.cool
