Guest edited by Khee Hoon Chan

We are very excited to announce our latest Special Issue! In this issue, we focused on the voices and experiences of queer and trans people of colour, and efforts to decolonizing the games studies space. With amazing work by our guest editor, Khee Hoon Chan, and our fantastic contributors, this issue focuses on decentering colonial views of queer games and play, the weaponizing of Black Gender, trans readings of games, and new directions for tabletop play. We hope you enjoy this issue as much as we do!
