Why should you send your game to Board Game Authority for review?
First, we love games of all kinds: board games, card games, miniatures games, eurogames, ameritrash games, etc. Our gaming group is diversified and is comprised of male and female gamers, as well as casual gamers and hard core rules lawyers. When we review a game you can expect multiple playthroughs with a multiple number of players.
Second, we are SEO and social media savvy. When we review a game we will link back, using appropriate anchor text (important for SEO), to any page you want. This could be the company website, a Kickstarter page, Facbook page, or any other website. Speaking of Facebook, not only will we post a link to the review on the Board Game Authority Facebook page, but also from our personal individual accounts. We also post the link to several Facebook groups, and not just all at once, but drip-fed over a number of days. We do the same for Twitter too. This maximizes your exposure and creates multiple entry points for how people find your game.
Third, our readership is growing everyday. We know how important it is for your game to have exposure and that is why we continually advertise our website.
Fourth, our viewers have a voice. The readers of Board Game Authority are active and engaged; they get to vote on everything we review. Our group rating system carries more weight and is more trustworthy than a traditional single author review system.
We can schedule posts and have them coincide with your Kickstarter campaign (just be sure to send us your game before your Kickstarter launches to ensure we have time to play it and write the article).
Start by sending us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to see if we have time to review your game. This also allows us to have your contact information at hand should we have any questions.
Then send the game to:
WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING NEW SUBMISSIONS AT THIS TIME
But, if you think you have something super special, send us an email and we might be able to work something out.
We’ll send a confirmation email letting you know that we’ve received the game. We’ll also be in touch along the way, letting you know when the post is going live.
