Sad news indeed, my aunt traded 3 sheep with him this morning for wood so it must be true

I like the comment "Welcome to all our new followers, especially those from Boardgamegeek!"... then ... "Have decided to give up gaming, more to follow"

It's a bit like parking your icecream van at the front of a playground and waiting for everyone to run up... then driving off.

Not his April Fools joke is it?

Alas this is old news, the real date of his quitting gaming was 2003 after he designed AMun-Re. Since 2003 some imposter has hijacked the name and been producing volumes and volumes of rubbish

I have to agree with Paul (and that is NOT an April Fool joke!)

I'm firmly convinced Reiner's still involved in the design process. I mean, sure, some intern made those dartboards littered with all the names of his older games and with ": the Cardgame", ":the Dice Game", etc.. But those darts don't just throw themselves, my friends....

Including your post? Is it really that big of deal? If so, I feel sorry for you.

Who do we have to lobby to make April 1st known as "International Don't Believe Anything You Read on the Internet" day?

Wrong. April 1st is the only day that Fox News accidentally posts real news.
