Forums are now active!

March 1, 2010

We are happy to announce that Gogogic’s official forums are ready and launched! 

These forums will now play host to all player discussions and should provide a friendly, interesting environment in which to ask questions, share tips with other players, receive news or announcements, and discuss random topics.  The layout will be very raw at first, but we will continue to make improvements.  We ask for your feedback in what you would like to see from the forums to make you want to come back more often.

The Vikings of Thule “Forum” button will be updated later today, but for now, you can access the forums by visiting http://forum.gogogic.com

Come introduce yourselves!
