This month, we visit one of our favourite topics, board gaming, to take you through some of the biggest topics across board gaming, from Brexit to the growing issue of counterfeiters, taking in the views and opinions of the UK’s biggest names in board gaming and board game retailing.

In this issue, we also talk exclusively to Gary Grant about why 2018 is the year of growth for The Entertainer, not just here in the UK, but across the globe and ask him, “IS a move to the US on the cards?”

It’s not just board games that are picking up the pace a retail, you know. Puzzles are, too. Driven by an audience appreciate of the artwork that sits at the heart of the sector’s popularity. It’s just another avenue for ToyNews to explore in this month’s special issue.
