The 12 (Board)Games Of Christmas: An Introduction

It's Christmas! And over the next couple of weeks, I'm going to be dropping into Rock Paper Shotgun on a regular basis to make my “12 (BOARD)GAMES OF CHRISTMAS” posts. This list will contain 12 board game gift recommendations, with a light review and some suggestions for the perfect people to give that gift to.

All of the games I highlight will be CURRENTLY IN PRINT and so you'll have no excuse not to buy them and improve your gift-giving. I mean, enough with the perfume already. Give your wife a board game! Enough with the socks! Give your grampa a board game! Enough with the vibrators! Give your Uncle Bill a board game!

But seriously – these updates will tell you which board games on the shop shelves right now will please your friends on Christmas morning. I'll make sure to point out how many players they play best with, how heavy they are, how long they take to play, and what kind of people might enjoy them. It's like... a guide. A guide to buying stuff that will make other people happy. A list of pure good and kindness, delivered by a haunted and troubled man with nothing left to lose.

The next thing you have to do is bookmark this little post. Then you can just click the little tag to make sure you don't miss any of the updates. Because they will be landing here there and everywhere over the next fortnight, like little surprise droppings from Rudolph's red-nosed anus.
We need some kind of system to keep track, right?

And that's about all there is for this update, because it is only an introduction post. What else did you want? I mean, what more is there to say?

They start rolling out this week. I want to see you sharing the info on the Twitters and Facebooks.

Can you do that shit?
