Board Game Renaissance

MPR: The LoopHole
The Loophole, a blog on Minnesota Public Radio, posits the idea that a Board Game Renaissance is in progress, led by Settlers of Catan.
Certainly, a walk through “The Source” gamestore shows that the board games are getting more and more space at the expense of some RPG stuff. And Catan is a lot of fun as are their ilk, even if I rarely do well in playing them.
