Architecture of the Games starts with new weekly newsletter

In the past, visitors could subscribe to receive a notification by email from Architecture of the Games when we posted a new news item. We have decided to stop this notification system and make a new start with an extended weekly newsletter which we will send by ourselves. This newsletter will also to replace the ‘Architecture of the Games weekly” posts on the website.


What does this mean:

  1. We are going to stop the old notification system and will remove all personal details. Subscribers will not receive notifications of news posts in the future.
  2. With respect to the privacy and preferences of our subscribers we are not going to transfer email addresses to the new service. Instead I kindly ask to subscribe again if you want to receive future emails from us.  (you can subscribe to our new newsletter on this page)


About our new newsletter:

  • Send once a week (every Thursday)
  • Contents:
    • New posts on Architecture of the Games
