I added my latest post to Gone Gaming, and I doubt that I will have time for more today. Sorry!
I'll just note a new board game based on the movie Snakes on a Plane, which still isn't even in the theaters yet: Cobras in the Cockpit. You get to play the snakes. It looks like an area control game, and might even be fun. Source: numerous sites.
The movie Snakes on a Plane will actually first be shown in Israel. That may be a first for Israel. I remember not too long ago we were one to six months behind on all movie releases. That changed with the worldwide release of the updated Star Wars movies.
And I'll leave you with this rant by a sports columnist about how board games are invading ESPN and he's getting sick of it.
