purplepawn1_smToday, February 7th, marks the 6th anniversary of Purple Pawn’s launch! Congratulations to all involved—writers, editors, supporters, and you wonderful readers as well!

Six years ago, Yehuda Berlinger started Purple Pawn with the mission of publishing “game news across the board”. On that day, he began with articles about Ticket to Ride appearing in the Sally Forth comic strip and a charity board game event being held at Bowling Green State University.

Since then, we have published 6,187 articles and the site has been visited by over a million individuals! Over its 6 year history, Purple Pawn has had its ups and downs but the staff remains committed to providing you a source of news covering all types of games, and to work at making the site even better.

Thank you Yehuda for your vision. And thank you to my current colleagues Robert, Randy, Sam, and Thomas for keeping us going.
