Product Review - If you suffer from the disease of the cult of the new, you might want to have access to product reviews. It wouldn't have to be games that are brand new, although this is probably the most useful for other users. If we could produce work half as good as EndersGame, we should be lucky.

  • @AlexP Sometimes the answers need to be refined more as you say. But sometimes there's simply a diversity of answers. Here's an example where there's not only diverse answers, but IMO the "wisdom of the crowd" was flat out wrong and could use the helpful commentary of an experienced player to lend more perspective to the answers: boardgames.stackexchange.com/questions/1018/… – Joe Golton Apr 12 '12 at 21:50
