  • Challenges for Game Designers This book (published in 2008) shows how video game designers can incorporate ideas from board games and RPGs into their own virtual creations.

  • Computers and Games Published in 2007, this book constituting "the thoroughly refereed post-proceedings of the 5th International Conference on Computers and Games, CG 2006, held in Turin, Italy, May 29-31, 2006 co-located with the 14th World Computer-Chess Championship and the 11th Computer Olympiad" deals with artificial intelligence.

-Editor's Note-

Many of the articles on this page mention BGG only in passing. The point in including them is to show their cumulative effect: When the subject is board games, news and magazine organizations turn to BoardGameGeek for quotes and information.

There are several BGG news articles that this page does not link to since the publishers charge money to access their archives. This page also avoids BGG mentions in gamer blogs and other board game websites (unless the article is unusual or written by someone noteworthy) as there are too many to keep accurate track of.
