The new issue of Counter arrived yesterday and, as usual, it looks to be full of interesting stuff. 25 reviews includingÂ a few that will be worth looking into further: Der Schwarm (Kramer/ Kiesling), Livingstone, Masters of Venice and Tulipmania 1637. There is also an outline of the various expansions included in Alea’s Treasure Chest, which celebrates their tenth anniversary. Steve Owen contributes an article on strategy in Snow Tails which I still need to read and there are articles on the UK Games Expo by Kendall Johns and Alan How. Several other articles including six pages of letters complete this quarter’s 84 page issue.
