Linkety Link

I love you all so much, here's a bunch of links to help you through the week:

The Escapist tackles Games and Mythmaking. One article I particularly like is about a Hindu non-violent shooter game, if that makes any sense to you.

Next Generation has a list of fifty game related books, helpful for students of game design and game theory.

The Looking Glass has a nice article on the benefits of playing games. The article is by Dr Toy, and I found it via Bernie DeKoven. The article has a lot of interesting and useful links to follow.

Apparently there is a new hyped CCG on the scene called "The Spoils". It's not yet released, but you can download the rules and sample cards on their site.

More board games I never knew about:

Yet another sex ed game, this one called Contraception.

And a game called "Go Away, Monster!", which teaches children not to fear the monster under the bed.

Mainstream Press:

Covers OshCon.

The huge Alliance Game Distributors center in Fort Wayne, TX, holding 16,000 games and products, and host to a Retailer Summit next week.

Bridge in Baltimore, and how it used to be as popular as Poker is today.
