April 26, 2021: Comics and Board Games Share One Universe!

Gail Simone

Recently, acclaimed comic author Gail Simone (Secret Six, Birds of Prey, Deadpool) has expanded her boardgame horizons with a variety of games from around our industry. She's been sharing her exploits and new acquisitions over on Twitter, and one of the things she's mentioned is being a longtime fan of Steve Jackson Games. She's talked about Munchkin and Zombie Dice, and extolled Ogre in particular as one of her early favorites. Now she is diving into the full depth of the boardgame hobby, and it's awesome to see. Her "Magic Porch" has been magnetically attracting all sorts of new games to her. I need to get one of those for me!

It's always fun when games and comics collide, and we're proud to be an influence for someone to explore a lifetime of gaming. Was Munchkin your first game? Maybe it was Car Wars or GURPS. Whatever you started with, everyone has a first game, so help spread the love and introduce your non-gaming friends to some classics, or even modern classics. Maybe you've got more gamers in your life than you think!
