SJG annual stakeholder report / Gygax magazine

Steve has finally released his stakeholder report for 2012.  It was a bit delayed this year as he finally took a bit of a break.  Ogre was a huge product that had a major effect on their line.  It still seems that Munchkin is a huge part of their product line.  We're not Munchkin fans yet but keep meaning to give it a try.  I'm happy that it's making so much money for them that they can afford to supplement other projects - like Ogre Designer's Edition.

He mentions that they are going to try to acquire some other game companies this year.  It should prove to be a very interesting year in the game industry.

Also, it seems that Dragon magazine is coming back - sort of.  Gygax magazine is a new publication started by Ernie and Luke Gygax.  The logo is the same font as the old Dragon logo and looks a lot like it did back in the Eighties when I first started buying it.  The table of contents is familiar as well - including What's New with Phil & Dixie. 

It's a quarterly magazine - mostly slanted towards AD&D but I may have to pick up a few to see how it stands up compared to the old days.
