Consider it a public beta.  Please let us know if you have any suggestions or if you see any problems.

In particular, please let us know:

a) what games, if any, you would like to help write a blog for;
b) what games, if any, you would like to see.

The new system makes it very easy to start new game blogs.  If you want to run a blog for a game, it is as simple as sending me your email and the blog is yours to run as you see fit.  Multiple users can be added to a game.

Note that the forum can now be accessed via http://boardgamestrategy.net/forum.  You will have to re-login, but the underlying forum database is the same (i.e., all user accounts, posts, etc. are intact).

It looks legit at first blush. If this is an April Fool's Day prank, it's a weird one. If not, why in the world would you announce it today?  :)

a) None, I'm so bad at them all
b) None, I spend too much time playing too many of them already.

I'd love to see Terra Mystica and TTA. I suck at writing articles though.

I'd add Power Grid as well, but I'm not nearly experienced enough to write articles on it.

I've mentioned it elsewhere, but I think Android: NetrunnerStrategy is going to be a thing somewhere, so it might as well be here. I am not sure how much overlap there currently is between competitive Dominion players and competitive Netrunner players, but the forums over at BGG are pretty active, but as everybody knows, those forums are not ideal for this sort of thing. With some advertising to lure those people to a site/subforum dedicated to Netrunner, I think there could be a really strong and active community built. There is also an online implementation that's fairly popular.

Also would enjoy seeing Terra Mystica, Power Grid, RFTG.

I don't think I'm good enough at any of these games to write strategy for them right now, though. :-[

fantastic stuff theory (and rrenaud?). well done.

i would like to see some power grid and/or puerto rico content myself. i might be up for writing a puerto rico article or two but i would probably want to log some more games first.

as for other games, where do you think the line should be drawn between strategy level and bringing in new users? games like settlers or ticket to ride are lower strategy but they would probably bring in more users to the site.

I think those are absolutely fine!  I don't think Catan/TTR are too "low" at all -- else how can you explain my friend consistently beating me at them?

Where I would draw the line is something like Fluxx.

Hey! No knocking Fluxx! There's lots of strategy in, uh, well... Memorizing the Goals and most frequent Keepers, then, uh, "drawing" them together! :P

How about some Agricola strategy?
I know a little, but i'm not sure I'd be good at writing an article on it.  But I could give it a shot

Something that would be interesting...  If there was a different forum for each game, maybe there could be a forum for general discussion/forum games?  It might work...

http://play-agricola.com/forums/

I think games that could be added here are ones that:
- have an active community dedicated to advanced level play,
- don't already have an established place for this community to discuss,
- preferably some interested players already are here because they play Dominion as well.

I feel comfortable writing a few articles on Power Grid. I'll probably start writing something today and if there's not an obvious place for me to put it when I'm done with a draft, I'll find some place to stick it.

Wow. I didn't mean it like that. Whoops. Too late to change it though.

My first article will be entitled "Power Grid takes less than an hour to play."

I'm not trolling.
