Happy 12th Birthday to the Opinionated Gamers!

Well, we’ve hit another milestone – today marks the 12th birthday of this blog….  Starting with our first review, Norenberc, we have tried to bring interesting content including reviews, session and convention reports, lists of our favorite games, roundtable discussions about polarizing game mechanisms, comic strips, puzzles, the occasional Amazon sale, and even a few videogame reviews…

Thanks to everyone who has come along for the ride, whether it is reading the blog online each day, or becoming an email subscriber (of which we now have nearly 3000!)

We are now up to:

  • 3,732 total posts
  • 2,247 reviews and first impressions
  • now averaging nearly 350,000 unique visitors a year
  • convention coverage of SPIEL for 12 years
  • convention coverage of the Japanese Game Markets for a few years running now

Our most popular page remains: the initial review of 7 Wonders

Our most popular series is the 138 Games series.

We continue to review the newest games – with over 160 games reviewed in the previous calendar year, and we still have a number of 2022 releases to write about in the coming weeks!  (One downside of the heavy release schedule in the fall – due to SPIEL and the holidays – is that it takes time to play 100+ new games that all arrive between Oct 1 and Thanksgiving!)

Thanks again to everyone for reading!
