Hobby Games: The 100 Best


For those attending GenCon, I've learned that Green Ronin's book Hobby Games: 100 Best will be available at the convention (it was a close race). It is also available on Amazon.com for pre-order. If you get a chance, take a peek and see if your favorite hobby game is included in the 100 essays. The book is not limited to any one type of game. Everything from RPGs to board games to card games to miniature games to hybrid games are included. It is also a great way to re-visit some forgotten games, or be introduced to new games.
