There is a lot of gaming content out there! These are some of my favorite blogs to read:
“Beyond Solitaire is a site dedicated to solo board games and to sharing how much fun it is to play them. Here, you’ll find news, reviews, and playthroughs of board games that can be played solo, including both solitaire games and cooperative games that can be enjoyed by one player.”
“Just a geeky girl with a whole bunch of board games. And dice. So many dice. At Board Geek Girl you’ll find articles, reviews and tutorials on everything from board games to Dungeons & Dragons and even a few geeky crafts!”
“Board game blogger. Reviewer for Board Game Quest. Inclusivity advocate with a penchant for abstract strategy and tacos. Changing the world one game at a time.”
Check out the “Ladies at the Table” series and the “Designing Women” series for some profiles of great women in the tabletop community!
“We’re a group of gaming academics, developers, hobbyists and enthusiasts. We have a keen interest in board games, tabletop games, video games, and all things in-between.
It is our intention on this site to offer reviews and teardowns of tabletop gaming titles. We’ll be looking at these with an emphasis on the wider context of the games, especially that of how accessible the games are in a physical, cognitive or sociological sense.
Don’t look to us for up-to-date new releases or the gossip in the board-gaming industry – that’s not what we’re about. We’re interested in games as subjects for analysis, we’re not driven by novelty.”
“We strive to create memorable, beautiful, fun games that engage and delight gamers worldwide. We hope that our games capture the imaginations of experienced gamers and new gamers alike. We also seek to add value to our fellow creators and backers in a way that extends beyond board games by sharing our crowdfunding and entrepreneurial successes, mistakes, and insights.”
“My name’s Eric! I’m a software engineer (focusing mostly on education, specifically in computer science), but in my free time I play some board games, y’know, casually. I also dabble in some video games and Netflix, but honestly for this blog I’ll be sticking to board games. Keep it focused, yeah?
The point of this blog is just to talk about some games I’ve been playing recently and make recommendations to friends / anyone who is interested in reading it. If you want to see a game featured here, let me know!”
World of Women is an international community of gamers. We play all sorts of games: tabletop, video, role playing, LARP… you get the idea. Our spaces are meant to foster support and encouragement. While the Discord channel is only for women-identifying folks, the Facebook group is for everyone. The website features gaming content created by members of the WoW Network.
Punchboard Media is a supportive network of board game media content creators committed to promoting games as a way to bring together families, friends, and board game enthusiasts across the globe, while advocating for openness, fairness, and inclusion in the community.
