    We posted this last year following all of our game of the year and best game stuff, but here is the original whole list of games that served as the foundation of the discussion of what should be our Game of the Year, Runner Up, Honorable Mention, and the subsequent Best 25 Games of 2014.

    Where's Panzer Corps, Battle Academy 2, Magnifico, Qvadriga, Autumn Dynasty Warlords, and the many other strategy/board games?

    More Desert Golfing love in the Guardian (and other stuff too including TxK)

    http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2014/dec/30/destiny-threes-and-hohokum-game-developers-on-the-best-of-2014

    I'll now scour the right wing press in order to see what to avoid.
