You might know me from Matchsticks for my Eyes, where I've blogged about strategy games since 2010. I love LPs. I wanted an easier way to read, write, and follow them, so I started PlayWrites to give them a home. While it's still under construction, you can:
- Browse LPs - using the grid below;
- Jump to an LP - using the drop-down menu at the bottom of each page;
- Give feedback - Have a suggestion? Interested in publishing your LP? Head over to this quick survey - I'm using this to build out the site.
Thank you, and enjoy the LPs!
