The most literary piece on boardgames I've ever read

Posted in

This isn't a "repost things I found on the internet" kind of blog, but sometimes I can't help myself.

This board game session report is astounding at first glance for its length, but what truly sets it apart is the fact that it is written as a literary think piece.  Yes, friends, this is one of the few times when the veil is lifted and the boardgaming hobby creates art.  I have read nothing like this in more than 10 years of gaming.

It may, perhaps, be too dense for non-boardgamers, but I hope not.  From where I'm standing, this is a "Why we play boardgames" manifesto disguised as a novella disguised as an internet post.
