“It is with much regret that I announce that The Games Journal has ceased publication. It was not an easy decision to make but it was the only one that made sense. The evolving nature of the web and the declining number of contributions has threatened to render our magazine irrelevant and that’s not something that I’m willing to accept.”
Too bad Greg felt this way. The arrival of the new Games Journal issue was something I was looking forward to every month. However, I can see why this happened — the journal was getting quite thin recently, with only few articles in each issue. All these new-fangled blogs are sucking the creative writers — I guess many blog entries might’ve been Games Journal articles before.
Still, it’s a shame — The Games Journal was a well-edited and always interesting to read. Blogs tend to be more hit-and-miss and BoardGameGeek is has a horrible signal-to-noise ratio. I know I’ll miss The Games Journal.
Fortunately the archives remain open. It’s a great collection of interesting articles about our hobby.
