The new book from the legendary grognards of Egsa Press is designed to fuel the drive for competitive indie videogaming. The Armchair Historian’s Guide 2015 Edition is available now.

The Armchair Historian’s Guide takes readers through a fast paced tour of video gaming’s rich shared tradition of celebrating achievements in gaming by keeping score. Referencing the iconic armchair that is often the center of control for gamers, the guide reminds gamers that whether they choose to observe, chronicle or make the digital record books, all gamers play an important role in the tradition of gaming.
