"COUNTER" is a quarterly magazine devoted to board and card games. The magazine is published in the second half of February, May, August and November.
After fifteen years at the helm of COUNTER magazine, Editor Stuart Dagger has handed the reins to Ben Baldanza and Greg Schloesser. The magazine will continue publication without interruption. Filling their shoes will not be easy, but Greg and Ben have accepted the challenge and are committed to continue producing the best in board game reviews, articles and commentary.
So what can you expect from COUNTER magazine as we move beyond issue #60 and into the future? More of the same and, well, more. The same team has been assembled, so you will continue to enjoy reviews and articles from all of the familiar gamers and friends you have come to know and trust over these past fifteen years. Both Alan and Stuart will also continue to contribute, which is a blessing. We will also have contributions from more folks located around the world. These will be folks who are well-known and respected within the gaming hobby and industry. We have other exciting additions planned that will help make COUNTER even more exciting, including an online website where you can learn more about COUNTER, the folks who contribute and even read a bonus review or two!

Ben and I are very humbled and excited to be assuming the reins of COUNTER magazine from Stuart and Alan. We are both very appreciative of the outstanding publication they have created and the service they have provided not only for Counter readers, but for the entire hobby and industry. We promise to continue the standard of excellence set by these two outstanding men, and hope to make Counter even more informative, exciting and fun. Join us as we continue to produce the best magazine in the board game hobby!

These web-pages provide information about COUNTER issues 1 to 43 and provides links to information about each game in the Counter Hall of Fame or reviewed in each issue. This information is normally from the game's publishers and is in English (if available) otherwise will be in the publisher's native language. Most of the links display the information in a second browser window, though some of the small pages are displayed in the right-hand frame of the current window.
Greg Aleknevicus maintains an index to every game that has received mention in the pages of Sumo or Counter magazines along with the relevant issues and page numbers on his "Wood Cubes & Cardboard" web-site. It seems to be up to date to 2004.
