Counter Issue 25 is out

by Susan Rozmiarek

A slightly mangled copy of Counter arrived in our mailbox Saturday. This was indeed a pleasant surprise, as I hadn't realized one was due out. Iíve been hauling it everywhere with me today, reading bits while waiting for my kidís swimming lesson and doctor appointment.

As usual, it is crammed full of gaming goodness. Ivan Hanley has an excellent article about starting a games club. There are mini-interviews with three American game publishers - Rio Grande, ‹berplay, and Fantasy Flight Games. Joe Casadonteís Re-Reviews are always an interesting read, and he also has a preview of the upcoming Essen offering from Warfrog and Martin Wallace, Struggle of Empires.

These are just a few of the highlights. I find that I almost always read Counter from cover to cover as all of it seems to interest me. This amazes me, given how many discussions and reviews are available free on the Internet.

I find that I read all of the non-review articles, then the letters, and finally start to page through the reviews. Most of the time I just jump ahead to the analysis & opinion part of the review, sometimes just a paragraph or two at the end.

The retrospective articles are usually the ones I like the best. It gives a better vantage point on the hobby, looking back ten years or so. Mike Clifford's writing style is just so odd, but I love it.
