Little Rock Games: Game-of-the-Month Club

Entertainment & Media >

Every month, one of our Little Rock Games staff will pick a game. Then we'll invite everyone who wants to be in The Club to download and play that game on Steam. We'll all spend the month playing the chosen game, learning it's ins-and-outs, and having a shared experience of play. At the end of each month, we'll gather some of our best thoughts, experiences, and maybe even critiques of the game and post them here to this website. We'll also invite everyone who played along with us to join the conversation and send in their impressions of the game of the month. We'd love to have you join us in The Club. It's a FREE, fun way to share your gaming experience.
