A Closer Look

Blog

A blog is a way for GameHead staff to communicate informally with the readers of the site. It's a place for discussions of new site features, informal comments on games we're playing in our spare time, links to things that we think are neat or things that may not necessarily pass editorial muster to be articles on our site. If you want a glimpse into the lives and the minds of people that bring you GameHead, this column is for you.

Pimp My Game

Pimp my Game is the column for people with too much time on their hands. Pimp my Game is for anyone who has looked at a game - any game - and imagined what it would look like if they devoted every spare evening and weekend for two years to the game, personalizing every aspect until it was perfect for them. Sometimes it's all about upgrading the components. Sometimes it's about dozens, even hundreds of rules variations and tweaks. Sometimes it's about stringing together hundreds of games, cataloguing them all, creating league tables for all the characters, and so on. Quite how Pimp my Game works is different for everybody, but it's united by one thing that stays the same: an almost insane love for the game in question.

Quorum

Quorum is the column where we meet the people who are at the front line of the games industry - the retailers. We talk to them about the issues facing their store, what they've found leads to success, and what they love about selling games for a living when they could be doing something dull instead!

Retailer Response

Here at GameHead we're interested in everything related to tabletop games: playing them, making them, and selling them. Our Retailer Response column is all about the business of selling games directly from the hardworking folks at your local store. 

If you're a hobby game retailer interested in submitting a story, please use the contact us link at the bottom of every page.

Why I Love...

Sometimes, love is unconditional. It's blind to faults, oblivious to issues, and would have us walk through the fire, unquestioning. In 'Why I Love...' we invite writers to share, without shame and without even the merest hint of balance, what it is about a particular game that turns them into a pile of gamer goo, desperate for just one more game.
