Summertime. Summertime. Sum-sum-summertime.
In case you didn’t know, it’s summer. So that means sand, surf, and sun… or if you’re a gamer like me, it means staying inside as much as possible, because it’s hot out there! Best to curl up with a good gaming magazine, and we’re in luck, since the summer issue of Casual Game Insider is now available.
Creating a magazine isn’t easy. Trust me, I know. It takes funds, and those funds can come from a variety of places. In the case of Casual Game Insider, they’re heading back to Kickstarter in order to fund the 7th year of their magazine. The campaign will launch on July 10th.
What a crazy week. Monday off. Tuesday in the office. Wednesday and Thursday at home because of the snow. Today’s back in the office, as I checked the hill at the entrance to my place late Thursday and it’d finally melted enough you could get out. So yeah, kinda odd schedule, but waddyagonnado? It’s winter. That kinda stuff’s gonna happen. It’s also gonna be 60 tomorrow, because this is still Georgia. Also, tomorrow, I’m gonna be doing some gaming. I hope you are, too. And if you’re going to be gaming, you’re going to want to be well-fed on bite-sized gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: Leader Ratss-M1 Battle Tank Now Available From Ratgard, Voting Underway For Best Casual Game of 2017, and Skeleton Warriors Up On Kickstarter.
If you’re like me, you like to fill your entire life with gaming. Whenever you’ve got some time on your hands, you find yourself looking for something gaming-related to read. Well, I’m going to have to go to the DMV at some point this week, which means I’ll have plenty of time on my hands. Thankfully, the latest issue of Casual Game Insider is now available. I know what I’ll be doing while I wait.
As the work week starts, we find our various ways to get in gaming were we can until the weekend comes back. To fill up some of that time, you can check out a gaming magazine. In particular, Issue 19 of Casual Game Insider is available for your downloading and reading pleasure.
Hey kids. I see from my friends feed that quite a lot of you are headed to Chicago for Adepticon. I really wish I was going. I would be, but there’s a bunch of proofing projects that are coming along, and I know how you gamers get if you have to wait even an extra day to get your games. 😉
Anyway, if you’re on the road or the plane or the pogostick, you’re going to need to keep your energy up. So here’s a bunch of bite-sized gaming stories to tide you over until you can get to Portillo’s.

The New Year is upon us. We’re almost a week in and many companies are getting back from vacation. Granted, just because they were on vacation doesn’t mean they don’t have new things for us already. Take, for example, Casual Game Revolution. They’ve got a new issue of their Casual Game Insider magazine. I know for a fact what it takes to put a gaming magazine together, so I know these folks have been working hard to get you this new issue. They also are running a new games giveaway.
Today’s a day to celebrate. Why? It’s my 5th anniversary with TGN. Yes, on this day, 5 years ago, I made my first post on the site. It was the new plastic Warp Wolf kit that Privateer Press was coming out with. Oh how gaming has changed since then. I remember having a conversation, a couple months into my tenure, with Ross “The Legend” Thompson (my boss at the time) about, “These Kickstarter-things.”
So, to celebrate, let’s have a bunch of bite-sized gaming stories.
What? We do that every Wednesday? Well, fine, be that way.

You know how much I love Fridays. It’s not my favorite day of the week (that’d be Saturday), but it’s a pretty close second (tied with Sunday). So you know I’m all happy and bouncy here in the office. Also, I got my new shirt from Teefury on. It’s a polar bear sitting at a computer. How could I not get that?
