What is Boardgame Heaven?

Boardgame Heaven is a  Youtube channel managed by Raymond Haaken that focuses on boardgames, cardgames, dicegames and other tabletop games. You can watch reviews, unboxings and how to play video's, and even the occasional report on a gaming convention and even interesting interviews with game developers and publishers.



History

Since 2016, making video's about boardgames has been a bit of a hobby of mine. It started with some simple unboxings of games I had in my collection, but that quickly evolved into how to play video's and later reviews, sometimes in Dutch but mostly in English. At some point I decided the quality of my video's needed to improve, and so I invested in a better camera (Canon EOS M6), a tripod and a lavalier microphone set.



With my new recording gear, I could do better interviews at crowded conventions, and improve the sound and image quality of my content.
Next, I had some clothing made with my logo, so people could easily recognize me when going to conventions to talk to publishers about their new releases.



The current step is rebuilding my garage into a gameroom, with a dedicated spot for filming.

Over the past two years, I have talked to many publishers at conventions such as Spiel Essen, the Brussels Games Festival, and local conventions in The Netherlands and Belgium. As such, I have built a network of people within the business, who I can approach for reviewing new games. This means I'm able to get new content to review relatively easily. So that brings me to the next chapter:

Why Patreon?

Of course, all these conventions, games and gear cost a lot of money. Not to mention the reconstruction of the garage into a gameroom/recording studio. And all of this is being done in my spare time outside of a full-time job and maintaining a family. So that's why I decided to create a Patreon page, so that YOU can help me create more content in the future, and keep doing this for a long time to come. With enough funds, I may even be able to one day start working less than full-time, and dedicate the time I save to creating content more often.

The ultimate dream is to make reviewing board games and doing reports on conventions my full-time profession, possibly with my own camera-operator and more professional gear and software to create the best content for all board gamers to enjoy. You can help me achieve this dream!
