Looking For A Few Good Patrons

Support Readers’ Choice & New Content at AtBG

The 3 years Luke and I have dedicated to Across The Boards Games have gone past in a flash. I can still remember the excitement of receiving our first indie game to review. Since then Luke and I have connected with a TON of local and indie designers to play, share and support their games and Kickstarter campaigns. We love being at the heart of this board gaming renaissance and want to encourage others to make, create and support great games too.


In the last year we have also become more committed to supporting the gaming community through playtestNW and organizing local events open to all gamers. Playtesting games, attending game conventions and proudly supporting new game designers is our way of being a sounding board for the ‘little guy’.

Currently Luke and I post 1-2 articles a week: usually a game review and our Fund It Friday article. Both Luke and I want to post more, create new content and engage with our readers more on social media but we have little time and resources to dedicate to the growing commitment. We want Across The Board Games to continue to improve, be more accessible and feature more content that you, our readers, want to see. In order to do that we need your help.


Support & Share Our Patreon

Patreon is a way that our readers, friends, families and game designers can support and improve AtBG through a monthly pledge. Your patronage will help us continue to create the content you already love (indie game reviews, Kickstarter articles, convention recaps, etc) and will invest in the new content that we want to bring to AtBG. For example we want to create a YouTube channel, newsletter, tours of local game stores and much more content that our readers can suggest and vote on. The additional funds from Patreon would go towards creating this new content.

Patreon is a low-risk way to support creators and their works through as little a $1/month and you can cancel your pledge at any time. We also have different pledge tiers that will give you different monthly rewards like voting on a Kickstarter campaign for the Reader’s Choice each week or advertise your current Kickstarter campaign on our website. Even if you can’t contribute, it would mean the world if you could share our Patreon page with friends, family and on social media to reach those who love our content or would be interested in supporting us.

We cannot thank you enough for the support and encouragement! It is our wish for Across The Board Games to continue and grow for many years to come!

Thank You and Happy Gaming!
