Board Game Reviewers

Word of mouth is one of the most powerful forms of advertisement. Getting your game reviewed puts your game's name out there and amounts to free publicity. Reviews are also a great form of feedback for the designer but also helps increase consumer confidence so that people are willing to buy your game. If you're going to run a crowdfunding campaign for your board game, be sure you have several reviews from independent reviewers so that you can feature them on your campaign page.

Even positive reviews typically contain suggestions on how to improve the product. Pay attention to what people have to say about your game and make improvements based on that feedback. Reviews also attract others to your game by pointing out why your game is fun and worth playing. 

Below you'll find a list of reviewers that we recommend. These individuals have a great track record in the gaming community, loyal followers, and have reviewed other games from the TGC community in the past.
