Why Do I Read Boardgamenews.com and PurplePawn.com?

I get a lot of my news from two main sources.

This is a good example of why I read BoardGameNews.com. Of late, they've branched a bit from their original focus to include op-ed pieces and columnists, but there is a lot of good information to be had.

I also read Purple Pawn for its useful content. Purple Pawn covers not only the hardcore boardgames, but also talks about chess, checkers, role-playing games, and more mainstream games. This article, for example, contains info I hadn't seen elsewhere.

Between the two sites, I have more information at my disposal than any single human being needs.

Of course, there are a few other news sites I browse, but none of them have the depth and breadth of these two.

  1. I'm glad you like what we're doing at Purple Pawn. We try not only to cover a broad range of games, but also to infuse our stories with the gamer's perspective you wouldn't get if we just reprinted the press releases.

    Also, it was nice to meet you at Gen Con. I'm sorry it didn't happen until the last 15 minutes of the show. Perhaps next year we could arrange a game.
