What's New in Board Game Blogs?

The board game blog world has been relatively stable. Most everyone who was blogging four months ago was blogging twelve months ago and is still blogging today. There are a few exceptions, and some blogs fell off of my radar. See my left sidebar for a complete list of board game blogs that I track.

If you know any blogs that discuss general board game topics and update at least once a month, drop me a line and I'll consider adding it. Thanks,

New (to me) blogs:

I have a friend in New Jersey who blogs about a range of issues, but most often about board game design (just sold his first design to Z-man Games):

I've just started blogging about free PC board games with reviews and where to find free full downloads of them.

Hi there, thanks for the link, but can you update your post about BeyondCandyland not being updated? It has been updated many times since the two years you last did.
