Members of the Punchboard Media crew discuss the hot button topic of reviewing board games -- including thoughts on what makes a good review, negative reviews, the difference between a preview and a review, and taking payment for reviews.
One of my favorite things about board games are the discussions after the game is put away. You talk about strategies, why you enjoyed the game, what you didn't like, and all those fun little details that don't generally make it into a review. I've decided to fix that with First Impressions!
