And now for something completely different…

On The Shelf: Power Struggle

Prospective sellers of hobby games send me their stuff and I make posts about them and provide contact info for the parties involved. Plus, I’m doing it for free. Expect a daily Off The Shelf post from me, so you can see what’s available out there before shelling out the big bucks.

For our inaugural post, here’s Power Struggle!
