As the great LL Cool J once said, "don't call it a comeback, I been here for years."
At least once a year the media declares that horror movies are dead and that board games are making a comeback. Of course neither of these claims are true because both horror movies and board games are here to stay. Board games may dip on and off the radar a bit based on the next big release, but they have and never will completely disappear. This is especially true if you consider digital titles like Idiocracy's Pirates War - The Dice King a bonafide board game.
