Greetings !

This week we're rounding up some of our most popular insights, with Hybrid Gaming being a unique amalgamation of both old and new gaming trends.

My favorite example of this insight is Twitch's expansion into livestreaming people playing board games, a partnership with Big Potato Games that has distinct implications for how the traditional medium of board gaming can be incorporated into contemporary consumer expectations and lifestyles.
