Joystiq, one of the paragons of video game blogging, has a new bi-weekly column called "Off the Grid". In it, Scott Jon Siegel weighs in on all things gaming that don't involve monitors.
This week's column, Digital killed the analog star, is a great shout out for board games. It gives five reasons to board game:
1. Rules are bitchin'
2. You can actually touch them
3. Real human contact
4. Fun for less
5. All the good designers do it
Update: I missed this one when it first came out: video game based board games.
