Thank you for your help! The Kicktraq gnomes will get to work on your suggestions very soon.

Please keep in mind not all suggestions may be used, and repeated re-submissions may result in being rejected automatically (and we don't want that to happen).

If you have any questions, have a good idea for a tag, or a more in-depth suggestion - please feel free to let us know!

Hrm... something went wrong.
Hey, bad things happen to the best of us. Don't worry, the gnomes have been dispatched. Maybe try again in a little while.

'Casual Game Insider Magazine' Nears Kickstarter Goal

July 18th - via:
For the past two years Casual Game Insider has been hitting the shelves of your FLGS and recently publisher Chris James revealed an opportunity to take the magazine onto newsstands and book stores across North American by way of a Kickstarter project.
