A Very Long Story About Board Games and Business

I came across this amazing story. Michael Barnes weaves an epic tale of his trecherous journey as a hobby game store owner. I laughed, I cried, and so on. It's damn long.

Epilogue

I was rooting for our protagonist here. Business is a tough world--the board game business, doubly so. Mr. Barnes may use a lot of linguistic flourishes in this story, be uses them well, and he certainly has something to say.

The Best Board Game Video Ever

Sometimes I research board games, usually to scoff at their overly complex designs and the 500 pieces that come in the box. Occasionally I find really well designed games. And even more occasionally, I find mind-blowing video reviews that leave me thinking "this is the greatest video about a board game ever!" This is one of those times.

Dear Board James: please make Yomi, Flash Duel, and Puzzle Strike look as awesome as DragonStrike.
