Welcome! The Games Journal was a monthly magazine about boardgames which ran from July, 2000 until September, 2005. A declining number of submissions forced us to shut our doors (metaphorically speaking) and abandon the regular, monthly issues. However, we have kept the site up and running since we feel that there is great value in the articles, reviews, puzzles, letters and original rules that we published during our run. Please visit our archives to view everything we ever published.
Despite being officially defunct, we will very occasionally add an article or review — the most recent additions are listed below:
