About George Jaros

Thank you for supporting GJJ Games!  On GJJ Games I let my excitement and passion for tabletop games come alive.  I started designing my own games and writing game reviews in 2014, shortly after I got back into the hobby when my kids were old enough to play.  

Since 2014 I have  reviewed a ton of games (I have over 100 reviews and more in my queue) and have designed nearly three dozen.  I'm actively promoting my games to publishers and have had very positive feedback, although no contract yet (here's hoping that changes soon).  I have also expanded the content that I include on GJJ Games with Crowdfunding Features, weekly People Behind the Meeples interviews with game designers, news articles, unboxings, cover Protospiel events, publish an annual Best New-To-Me Games list, an annual The Best Kickstarter Previews & Prototype Games list, a Gateway Games Roundup, and more.  I also manage the Boardgame Giveaways & Contests - Tabletop, Board, and Card Games group on Facebook.  Every November I organize a 24 Hour Gaming Marathon and Charity Auction to support Extra Life and Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.  In 2020 I raised over $3950 for the charity with the help of dozens of gamers, publishers, and local retailers!

I don't write about my passion for money.  I do it because I love doing it.  And I'd love to be able to do more for the hobby and industry.  I know many gamers are on a tight budget because I am as well.  Coverage at conventions and other events is something I would love to do, but are beyond my personal budget.  I would also love to host more giveaways to give even more back to the community.

What Do Patrons Get?
By becoming a patron of GJJ Games you will help me to provide even more to the board gaming community.  I promise that the money donated will go right back into the community.  Money donated will go to help me attend conventions like Protospiels, Origins, BGG Con, Dice Tower Con, and GenCon, and I'll happily provide coverage through articles, interviews, and pictures.

Supporting GJJ Games through Patreon will get you a big Thank You on my Patreon Supporters page.  Some levels will also include links, logos, or other advertising on GJJ Games.  The GJJ Games Blog receives an average of 5,000 visitors per month, with even more followers engaged on social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.  I target content promotion specifically to board game communities, so you can be sure that any advertisements will be shown to your target audience! *  

I will also be giving money donated right back to my patrons through giveaways.  I will run two
types of giveaways on GJJ Games, in addition to any other giveaways sponsored directly by publishers.
  • $100 Level Giveaways** - Every time I earn $100*** through Patreon donations, I will run a giveaway for a game valued up to $50 MSRP, or a gift certificate equal to approximately $10 less than that game's MSRP (winner's choice).  These giveaways will be public and will be open to anyone following GJJ Games.
  • $500 Level Giveaways** - Every time I earn $500*** through Patreon donations the Giveaway I run will be for a game valued  up to $100 MSRP, or a gift certificate equal to approximately 80% of that game's MSRP (winner's choice). These giveaways will be public and will be open to anyone following GJJ Games.
So, please consider supporting GJJ Games today so that I can continue to provide the in depth game reviews and coverage you expect! And thank you for being part of the greatest hobby industry in the world!

* Any ads, links, or other content added to GJJ Games as a reward level is subject to approval by George Jaros.  Content must be family friendly and appropriate for the GJJ Games audience.  Ads will start the month that payment for a successful pledge is collected (Patreon collects pledges on the first of each month.)
*
* Giveaways will be open to US residents age 18 or older.
*
** $100 and $500 Level Giveaways will be limited to one per month or one per three months respectively.  If Patreon funding should end up being higher than $100 per month or $500 per three months I will look at additional reward options for my Patrons.
Goals
$49.82 of $100 per month
At $100 a month I will be able to run ten $100 Level Giveaways and two $500 Level Giveaways per year!  That's a giveaway every single month!
