I want a few good boardgame sites for my RSS reader[1]. I'm looking for sites that have good articles/news about gaming, not just places to buy games.

The only one I have right now is PurplePawn.com, because someone who I gamed with once writes there and gave me his business card. (Good site, btw.)

Thanks!

[1]And unless the site is really good, I won't subscribe unless they have full text feeds, not just snippets.[2]

[2]Yeah, yeah, I know, if I don't visit the page, they don't get ad impressions, more revenue etc. However, if the post is good enough, I'll go and leave a comment. As it is now I subscribe to enough sites (~150) that I don't need want to have to leave my reader for every single post.

Edit: I'll also throw a bit of GG your way for each of your suggestions I like/subscribe to.

List that I subscribed to:
Purple Pawn
Journal of Boardgame Design
Gamer's Mind
The Dice Tower Video
Obsessed with Gaming
Fortress: Ameritrash
Playing with Myself
Skunked Again
Cumbersome
Nimrods
Pawnstar
The Non-stop Tabletop
Yehuda

Other suggestions:
Boardgame News
My Play
Shannon A.
The Tao of Gaming
Board Games with Scott
iMosse.net
Hardcore Ludography
Illuminating Games
Fail Better
Thoughts from the Gameroom
Westpark Gamers
Consim World
Web Grognards
Games for Educators
Boardgames Austrailia
The Spiel
Boardgame Cafe
Tric Trac (Note: French)

Thanks for the suggestions so far. I actually had Fortress: Ameritrash in there too, but forgot it. Added it to the list now.

In addition to some sites already mentioned (Gamer's Mind and Tao of Gaming, especially) I'd add:

Illuminating Games by Chris Farrell (RSS)
Skunked Again by Joe Gola (RSS)

If you're interested in boardgame design, too, also check out:

Fail Better by Gil Hova (RSS)
Cumbersome by Seth Jaffee (RSS)

I'll add a couple of Brits:

http://www.nimrods.blogspot.com/

http://fellonmyhead.blogspot.com/

a South Dakota lady

http://sodaklady.wordpress.com/

and some Germans (site contains both English and German language content)

Updated the list again. When I have time later today I'll edit in another section for games people suggested, but I didn't end up subscribing to.

Edit: Done.
