This year, the Opinionated Gamers are taking a slightly different approach to previewing the fair... Rather than trying to compete with the BGG preview - which is written by one of the OG Contributors, W. Eric Martin - we're focusing on previews, first impressions and reviews of games that will be new to the show.

There are still two weeks to go, but our blog has already covered a fair number of new games... and we will hopefully be posting one more review/preview a day until the show starts!

Here is the intro to our coverage:
