Greetings. Just wanted to let you know about my game blog, called Boards and Bees. Cheesy title aside, it's a blog where I look at games that I'm excited about. It's not a place for reviews, just a chance for me to explore some new titles. I may try to do a review or two if I ever get to play the games, but for now, it's all about the buzz. So far, I've talked about 7 Wonders, 51st State, Alien Frontiers, Wok Star, Hive: The Mosquito, Lords of Vegas, Travel Blog, Space Alert: The New Frontier, Mord im Arosa, and Antics. If you're interested, take a look. Thanks!

Now that we're a couple of weeks post-Essen, I have five new posts up on Boards and Bees: Dominant Species, Gosu, Eminent Domain, Survive! Escape from Atlantis, and Genesis. These are all games that I haven't played but am interested to try out at some point. If you're interested, take a look. Thanks!

Five more posts are up: The Phantom League, K2, Troyes, Dominion: Prosperity, and Crows. All five look pretty cool, though I have definitely cooled on The Phantom League after trying to go through the rulebook. Have a look if you're interested. Thanks!
