Mike Siggins Returns!

by Susan Rozmiarek

I was just discovering The Hobby as Mike Siggins was ducking out for an extended vacation. Fortunately, he left behind a wealth of commentary and reviews online to feed my then newly found love of German games. Now heís back to entertain and inform yet again in a new column at the Funagain website. As a sporadic blogger and reviewer myself, I am humbled by such a talented writer. Mr. Siggins is not afraid to voice strong opinions, both negative and positive. He does so with humor and honesty and one can always appreciate his views, even if one doesnít always agree with him. Itís thrilling to have him back!

You're correct, Susan - Mike has had a HUGE influence on the hobby... and particularly on me. When first discovering the "wide world of Euros" back in the mid-90's, it was the Game Cabinet (and particularly Mike's writing) that kept me glued to the computer for hours, trying to take in all the information.

When Mike went silent, I was saddened. Even though I'd never met the guy, it was like I'd lost an old friend.

So, imagine my surprise (and joy) when he began reappearing a year or so ago? A couple of appearances on Mark Johnson's Boardgames To Go, a post here and there - and then the good news of this blog/article series for Funagain.

Nice to have you back, Mike.
