You can also email us, if you’re willing to poke about the site a little, you won’t have too much difficulty locating our email address.

We are not affiliated with any of the sites linked on the right sidebar, but they are all sites we admire and respect, so if you don’t know them, have a look. Obviously, they are all about boardgames. If you don’t like boardgames, you are probably lost. Here’s the exit.

If you are using the comments, please be nice to your fellow commenters. I’m sure you are all lovely people, so there’s no reason we can’t all get along.

While we did just launch, we have been running quietly for a few weeks, so with judicious use of the back arrow located under the comic you will find previous comics. We do hope you enjoy then, and browse with us again sometime. Continue reading This really happened
