It’s that time of year. You know: time to give and receive games, and spend the holidays playing ‘em! For those of you looking for the perfect game to bestow upon a hapless victim – er, beloved relative or friend, rather – we’ve got you covered with our seventh annual OgreCave Christmas Gift Guide. The first of our four gift suggestion lists for 2007, Twelve Stocking Stuffer Games, is offering its advice on goodies $20 or less. We’ll have more in the days ahead, but for now, start small, and take deep breaths – we’ll get through the season of giving together.

The turkey isn’t even carved yet, and sales are springing up all over. We’ll have our annual OgreCave Christmas Gift Guide up after a last edit and the requisite holiday feasting [EDIT: Now available!], but in the meantime, here’s a few places to start looking for deals:
- Any fan of legendary fantasy artist Larry Elmore should check out his 4-day half-off sale.
- Paizo Publishing has a new sale section on their site, currently featuring a ton of Green Ronin products.
- Goodman Games has grab bag goodness.
…and that’s just what I found without looking around much. If you find other sales going on this weekend, post ‘em here to get the word out. Oh, and lest we forget, happy Thanksgiving, and happy gaming!
For the more CCG inclined, it may be worthwhile to note the imminent passing of Comic Images’ Raw Deal, the WWE CCG that’s been going strong for seven years. The company will cease publishing the game at the end of December, due to decreased consumer interest. The words “raw deal” always made me think of an Iron Chef CCG, but yeah, I may be alone in that regard, I know. (more…)
It’s that time of year again – GAMES Magazine has announced their top game picks for 2007, and the GotY winner is a nerdy-but-not-too strategy board game. No shockers here, except that GAMES now actually has a website that’s not completely useless. However, Funagain seems again to be the only online source for the full list of 100. Remember to support your friendly local game store!
If you already know about Bella Sara (and you should, if you’ve been paying attention), then today’s article in the New York Times won’t reveal anything earthshattering. However, it serves as a reminder that Peter Adkison is still out there, lurking, ready to take over the world’s CCG market again when the time is right. Plus, we might see Bella Sara movies someday. Oh dear.
