My apologies for the delay in getting this issue out, I was on vacation for the last couple of weeks of September. This meant that I was unable to get much work done prior to leaving as most of the submissions arrive about a week before month's end. In any case, I hope you enjoy this month's offerings.

While I enjoyed my road trip to Los Angeles and Las Vegas, it does have the unfortunate side effect that I won't also be able to make it to Essen this year (not enough time nor enough money). This is made all the worse as I'm constantly getting e-mails from people asking if I'll be there and I sheepishly have to respond "no". Apparently people weren't kidding when they told me that life can't be all fun and games. I'm sure everyone will have a great time at the fair and I look forward to reading the reports that will no doubt start to flood the usual websites. At least I can visit vicariously.

I enjoy games that readily present the player with puzzles. That is, situations in which you can seemingly determine a move which guarantees you a win. I recently discovered another game of this type from an unlikely source Bruno Faidutti. He's more known for games that feature a heavy dose of chaos but Babylone features no luck at all.
