  • Christine Sprankle quits Magic: The Gathering cosplay due to a barrage of toxic harassment.

  • According to BoardGameGeek: “Something is happening with Mayfair Games and Lookout Games, but it's not clear what. Alex Yeager, who had been serving as Mayfair's lead acquisitions person and main developer since Asmodee acquired the English-language rights to Catan in January 2016, posted publicly on Facebook that November 3, 2017 was his last day at Mayfair after twelve years with the company. Julie Yeager and Chuck Rice are also no longer with Mayfair. I've asked the current contact person at Mayfair for information on the company's status and received no response; a similar request to a contact at Lookout Games received a ‘no comments at this time’ response.”

  • AEG says hurricanes delayed its logistics pipeline: “The hurricanes that hit the US did quite a number on our logistics pipeline. As a result several products that originally were planned for release in October and November have all shifted to December. We know that adding new games to your lineup in the middle of the Christmas season is a challenge, but we're hopeful that you'll also see it as an opportunity to capture sales as people look for something unexpected to give to friends & family.”

  • The cast of Murder on the Orient Express plays Werewolf during filming.

  • Champion Scrabble player banned amid cheating scandal.

  • Cardboard Jungle starts a board game publishing company, Hexagram 63 Game Studios, and is currently looking for submissions.
