"A communications breakdown can mean only one thing- INVASION"

That's my favorite line in EPISODE I. Actually, it's the only line I like at all. That guy (Boondoggle Papa, Toots Worrisome, or whatever his name is) is so paranoid. I bet he calls his pals (Chipto Frenda or Buddia Olpal) and if their cellphones aren't working or if their email bounces he assumes it's Poland 1939 all over again.

Well, apparently there's some kind of invasion over at, or at least inside of Bill Abner's inbox. Somehow that crazy internet mislaid this week's article and it's not up yet. It should be up as soon as Abner gets through ruining it with that editing machete whereby he cuts out all my devastating, Pulitzer-prize caliber prose and leaves behind something a chimpanzee can read and understand

I'm off to go gaming, so I won't be able to post it here until later. But keep checking- This week's topic- MAGIC: THE GATHERING.

Sometime in the early 1980s, MichaelBarnes’ parents thought it would be a good idea to buy him a board game to keep him busy with some friends during one of those high-pressure, “free” timeshare vacations. It turned out to be a terrible idea, because the game was TSR’s Dungeon! - and the rest, as they say, is history. Michael has been involved with writing professionally about games since 2002, when he busked for store credit writing for Boulder Games’ newsletter. He has written for a number of international hobby gaming periodicals and popular Web sites. From 2004-2008, he was the co-owner of Atlanta Game Factory, a brick-and-mortar retail store. He is currently the co-founder of and as well as the Editor-in-Chief of Miniature Market’s Review Corner feature. He is married with two childen and when he’s not playing some kind of game he enjoys stockpiling trivial information about music, comics and film.
