Well, humble listener, all I can tell you is that boardgames have experienced a recent reemergence in the 21st century. In both creative, innovation, and popularity of the hobby. Coincidentally, we now live in the "Golden Age of Board Games".

Has humanity's desire to interact contribute the reconnection of board gamers? What is the "Wheaton Effect"; does it exist and has it contributed to the rise of board gaming across the globe? What board gaming cafes can you visit in Ottawa? Role for initiative and prepare to find out. Only on Geek On!
