Suddenly a shot rang out! A door slammed. The maid screamed. Suddenly a pirate ship appeared on the horizon! While millions of people were starving, the king lived in luxury. Meanwhile, on a small farm in Kansas, a boy was growing up.

Right on their site it says "an affiliate of BoardGameGeek" and has the BGG logo.

Is it?

Yes, I know a proper 18XX tile should have a tile number.

Their rental closet of strategy games has 9 titles, including Claustrophobia, Go, and For Sale.

On the other hand, they do have Antiquity and Advanced Civ available for their gold-level members. I suspect if their business model takes off there will be a long wait for those ;-)

I vaguely remember Derk saying that was the case. It would have been around GenCon or Origins.

How odd. I wonder what the nature of the "affiliation" is.

I guess BGG is keeping mum until they see whether the endeavor takes off?

There certainly haven't been any advertisements or announcements of the partnership / affiliation.

Like I said, it was a vague recollection. I dug up the post I was thinking about, and Derk doesn't say that there is a link.
