Just when you thought the world was safe from marauding game zines, Grampa Barmo’s Discount Game Magazine makes its presence known. “A fan-created zine dedicated to the wide world of wonderful cheap games,” Grampa Barmo will shine the spotlight on games that cost $10 or less. And Barmo seems to be an equal opportunity zine: they’ll feature role-playing, card games, board games, or even games for the almighty computer. If it’s cheap or free, they’ll talk about it. So, what can you expect in the first issue?
The debut issue of Grampa Barmo’s Discount Game Magazine features an engaging history of cheap games in Italy by Italian game mogul Andrea Angiolino and a discussion of the revolutionary new piecepack idea by James Kyle. It also includes twelve add-in cards for Deep7’s recently-released Snake-Oil, two puzzles, a nifty new chess variant, news on the industry and game reviews galore!
Okay, I’m sold. Each issue will sell for $3, or $10 for a four-issue subscription. The first issue will back from the printer shortly, so get your order in. Tell ’em you heard about it on OgreCave, and… uh… they’ll like you?
