Reading Matters

We won't lie to you. The purpose of this web site is to inform you about our games and hopefully persuade you to buy them.

Fortunately there's more to life than commerce and we occasionally find time to write something which we think might be of interest to Johnny Punter. Probably our most significant meisterwerk is Mission From God, the listing of zines that run games by post (the hobby whence came Breaking Away and Office Politics), but there's some off the wall fun stuff too, such as the Game Designer's Notebook (a record of how Breaking Away came to be produced) and the Take That You Fiend! magazine Sick Review of the Year (not for the prurient).

The links to all this good stuff are over there in the left hand margin. Enjoy!

If you have a site which you think should be listed here, drop us a line.
