A change in how I’m approaching my news page.
I didn’t put together a news page for last month; I was trying to decide on a better approach. This is what I came up with: I’m going to run lists of announcements, new releases, and games appearing on crowdfunding sites. There are so many games coming out at the moment it’s hard to keep up with them all!
I’ll add my comments here and there, and everything will be linked to their source page, or BGG page.
Of course, if I have any other news to tell you about, I’ll put it on here too.
