Hello everyone! I'm Tom with 2 To 4 Players, and I love to play games. I think gaming is more than just sitting around a table and smashing pieces together or rolling a bunch of dice and hoping the numbers turn up in your favor. I am trying to help people understand why gaming is something special that they can share with their friends, their family, even complete strangers. I also try to make my content as smile-inducing as I can, because I believe that the world needs more joy, more laughter, and I believe board games can help with that. Your contributions will not only help me be able to write more often, but will also help shape the content and future of 2 To 4 Players and perhaps board gaming itself. Ok, so maybe not that far. But it's a nice idea.

When I say you will help shape the future of 2 To 4 Players, I am talking about my Community Supported Review initiative. I want to give you the power to choose what I review (or at least one of my reviews). Once we reach the starting goal of $25, everyone who is a member of the Single Player Patron level or higher will be able to contribute entries into a drawing which will decide what game I review for the next Community Supported Review. 

I need to know what people want to read about. And you can help. Thank you!

At this level, you will be invited into the Community Supported Review program. Once the previous Community Supported Review has been released you will be emailed with a list of potential reviews, and you will be asked to vote for the one you want us to review! It's that simple.

At this level, you will receive all the rewards of the Single Player patron, but here's the kicker: your votes will count as two!

IN ADDITION
What if when you get the list, that game you REALLY REALLY REALLY wanted to see reviewed isn't present? At the 2 Players level, you can write it in! Did you absolutely want me to review the game about recreational surgery? Write it in!

IN ADDITION ADDITION
Every month you will be invited to an exclusive sit down and chat/type/communicate type deal, via Skype or Messenger or some other such form of technology, where we can chat about games, gaming, or whatever happens to be on your mind.

Goals
$0 of $25 per Community Supported Review
Once we reach this goal, Community Supported Reviews will begin. I will send out an email to all patrons with a list of games and you will get to cast your vote for which game you would like me to review in the next Community Supported Review! In effort to ensure that everyone feels like the game they want gets a fair shot, and the highest level patrons don't just ROFLstomp their choice into being reviewed, all votes will be entered into a drawing, from which I will draw the winning game. That way, even if you are one tiny vote amidst a sea of votes (yeah, like we'll ever get THAT popular) there is always hope that your game might be the one pulled from the hat.

Your contributions will be used to supply the game, your lovely names will appear (or not appear, if you're shy) at the end of the review, and your votes will help decide which game it will be! Finally, reviews that YOU want to read.

PS
Lest you are wondering: oh, what if I sign up to support this dashing yet humble young man's Community Supported Review system, and he proceeds to churn out review after review? Will I have to pay each time he reviews the latest "Keeping Up With The Kardashians: The Board Game?" The answer is no. Once the Community Supported Reviews goal is reached, I will start out doing one Community Supported Review per month. That may increase depending on the popularity of the model (so if you like it, tell your friends to come check it out too), but I would rather focus on quality over quantity, especially when it comes to my patrons.
