I try my best when editing The Games Journal to make everything readable to the widest variety of browsers possible. If you have problems reading something, I encourage you to write in and let me know about it. One such re-occurring problem has been with the information boxes on reviews (amongst other places). It seems that these were not appearing for some people but of course they didn't realize that this was the case. (It's hard to tell you're missing something that you've never seen.) Upon investigation, it appears that early versions of Netscape (pre-v5.0) are the only browsers that cause this. I experimented with a number of fixes and eventually gave up in frustration. I fully suspect that the code that FrontPage spits out is the culprit but at present I'm not prepared to move to another editing package. If any readers have an easy solution to this problem, please let me know.

Regular readers are probably aware that the Spiel in Essen is rapidly approaching and with it a whole new avalanche of games. Happily, I'll be attending the fair again this year (I went for the first time in 2000) and am really looking forward to it. I wrote about the experience for Counter magazine and I've reprinted the article this month. You can also check the archives for some photos I took that year. Keep your eyes on some of the other online sites, you'll be hearing lots about the new releases and items that will be coming your way very soon.

Please note that since I'll be traveling through Europe for much of October I won't be able to respond to letters or submissions right away. I'll do my best to get in touch as soon as I've returned.

I have no idea if the new Italian company daVinci Games released Bang! with a knowing sense of irony. The "spaghetti westerns" that Sergio Leone directed remain the defining films of the western genre so it seems all too appropriate that an Italian company release this western themed card game.
