I just signed up for a year long membership over at Boardgame News. I highly recommend that those interested in board games pay the rather small amount of cash to support the efforts of Eric Martin.
Boardgame News offers most of its information for free but with a membership you do get a few sneak peaks. Some out there in the community have complained that there is information that needs to be paid for but as I understand it, Eric acts as a journalist rather than a fan and puts a lot of effort into keeping the information on the site up-to-date and accurate. The 25 bucks for a year membership really is worth it even without the sneak peak info you get for being a member just to support his efforts.
So, check out the site, read the info, and consider becoming a member!
