aip_double_feature.jpg OK, we have a double feature today.

First up is the Cracked LCD column over at Gameshark.com. It's my New Year's Resolutions, and I've already acted successfully on like four of them. Did any one not "resolve" to play the games they own more and buy less in 2009? Probably not Frank Branham.

Second, I'm doing a little freelance work at a site called Worthpoint.com. It's an antiques and collectibles site and I was asked to write a couple of pieces about board games as collectibles. It's here, go click on it so I look good and they ask me to write more. Keep in mind that the article is written for a _very_ different audience than who I usually write for, so it's probably pretty boring for us hobby vets. I also wrote a piece about one of their folks that's up at the inauguration. Click on it too , while you're over there.

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 FortressAT.com and Nohighscores.com 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.
