Well, we’re excited to be through the first week here. People are still finding out what we’re trying to do here, but I’d like to think we’re gaining momentum. In case you were late to the party, here’s a quick review of the week’s activity here at “The OG”:
Monday – Valerie Putman reviews Norenberc (Andreas Steding, White Goblin Games)
Tuesday – Lucas Hedgren discusses the evolution of Lost Cities into Keltis and the multitude of related games.
Wednesday – Mark Jackson gives the history behind his Five and Dime Project, and he invites you to join in this year’s survey
Thursday – Dale Yu reviews Campos (Pietro Vozzolo, HUCH! & Friends)
Friday – Kris Hall gives his first impressions on Merchants and Marauders, Dominant Species and 7 Wonders.
Additionally, Board2Pieces and the Average Gamer Project made their initial appearances on the blog.
We’re still on pace to bring you one new gaming article per weekday here at the Opinionated Gamers. We’ve got a great list of things on tap for next week including an interview with a world class game designer as well as a review of a major release from Essen 2010.
If you haven’t already done so, consider subscribing to our blog (the link can be found in the upper right sidebar) or the RSS feed! A few of you have asked – and if it helps – we will try to publish our posts at 7am Eastern Time (GMT -5)
Thanks again for reading, and we’ll meet you back here on Monday morning. If you like what you see here, please spread the word!

Wow! Lots of great experience has been gathered here. I’m really impressed with the start – and love the style and content.
Congratulations on your first week. Some great articles in there. I’ve posted about the launch on my Spiel website. Looking forward to whatever’s coming next.
All the best.
Agreed: great first week.
Really like the format… and all of the contributers (so far :P), as well as the tone here. There’s this breezy style that everyone seems to have that makes reading all the content a pleasure.
In future reviews, if possible, I would love to also see at least one picture of the game “board,” even if it’s only just the back of the box. Not all of us are constantly on the Geek, keeping ourselves updated.
@All –thanks for the feedback, both publicly here in the comments and privately in the feedback. We’re certainly taking all of these comments to heart, and we will constantly be trying to make the site better!
Thanks for reading!
