Column 2: A column focused on Fireproof Games’ iOS and Android steampunk puzzle games The Room, The Room Pocket, and The Room 2.

Column 3: Focused on the console edition of board game Monopoly Plus, this column discusses what happens when you choose the wrong game to play with your significant other; “if at first you don’t succeed, try again”
