The Geek Weekly Issue #1

by Brad Cummings

Welcome to the first The Geek Weekly(TGW), a weekly roundup of interesting things happening on Every day hundreds of comments and posts are made on BGG; it's impossible to keep track of it all. That's why we've created TGW as a way to highlight great content from around the Geek.

Here's a breakdown of our layout:
- Around the Geek: This is the heart of the roundup, featuring interesting posts, from geeklists to blogs.
- Review of the Week: A selected review, either written or video, from one of the many BGG reviewers.
- Pic of the Week: Pictures are a great way to capture the hobby and we will highlight a great example each week.
- Video of the Week: Video is for more than just reviews, we will highlight one each week.
- Weekly Poll: We ask you for your opinion on a different subject each week.

We will do our best to provide a varied and diverse look at BGG each week. Found a post that you think should be featured? Shoot us a Geekmail.
