Games, bringing families together since, well forever...

There seems to be a resurgence in board and card gaming. (Hereafter referred to as table top gaming.) I think that's a great thing.

Freemium is a friendly way to say price gouging...

I don't think anyone begrudges game designers and publishers fair compensation for their work and creativity. We can argue what exactly fair means another time, this post isn't about that.

This post is about the current trend for mobile games to take the concept of free to play (freemium) and twist it into something, oh lets say it, evil.

Why a blog, why now?

There are a lot of things on my mind, things that I want to write down (type?) and let others see and think about.
Google+ isn't the right place for them, at least I don't think so. They wouldn't fit in twitter anyway and I don't have a MyFace or Spacebook account.

A blog will allow me to put these thoughts out there and not really bother anyone who doesn't want to read them.
