The more I blog, the more I sway away from the bigger board game sites. Not that they’re bad, it’s just that there are so many people out there making fantastic board gaming content, and better suited to my tastes. There are going to be a few familiar faces here, but enjoy the fruits of my internet browsing!
Start Your Meeples: Easily one of my favourite blogs, Luke does a great job with his content that ranges from in-depth strategy guides, to quick fifteen-minute reviews. I particularly like his series where he compares different versions of the same game and tries to objectively determine the best in the series. Here’s his take on Pandemic.
Dude! Take Your Turn: It’s a tough call between either Dave or Luke’s blog as my favourite. Dave has a fantastic name and a very similar writing style to me. I feel right at home in his blog. We also share similar tastes in games, so I’m always excited when he puts up a new review. Check out his review for Imhotep.
Boards and Bees: This blog takes my next spot, they’ve been running a series called Board Game Buzz, which I devour like a fat man eating a wedding cake. Well written, and always on point with their game choices. The latest is City of Kings, have a look.
Sword, Board and Pen: I really enjoyed Andrew’s Top 10 Dice Games , as someone who usually hates dice – but am always looking for new games to win me over. This was a breath of fresh air, and a few of his suggestions have made it onto my to buy list.
To Play is Human: Rebecca is currently doing a series showing off what people have done themselves to bling out the games they love. It’s a great series which makes me think: I can do that, if I had the time, the money, and the motivation, you know what on second thought… Check out the latest entry, it contains clay doughnuts good enough to eat.
Geek Sleep Rinse Repeat: Run by a couple of guys, they do weekly updates on what they’ve been up to. While not always focused on board games, I do enjoy reading along each week to find out what they’ve been up to. In their latest check in they talk about the newly released Vermintide 2.
If you own a board gaming blog, or have any you recommend, let me know in the comments. I’m always on the hunt for new content.
