Hi, my name is Paul Grogan and back in 2015 I left my job to start a new career in board games, and Gaming Rules! was created.

I have loved board games my whole life and am very passionate about them, some would say obsessed. I also love teaching people how to play games, so Gaming Rules! was created as my way of teaching people how to play board games by creating instructional videos.

Here is an example of one of my recent videos that I did for Clans of Caledonia.

I have been a part of the gaming community for many years, attending a lot of events, often working as a member of a demo team, helping teach people how to play games. I also contribute a lot of my time on various discussion groups and forums to help people as much as I can.

Over time, things have moved on, and I am now creating other content too. I do a  regular podcast , I do the occasional review video , and I want to do more. I enjoy creating content and have had a lot of support from fans of my content. Whilst it is true that the rules videos I create are commissioned pieces of work, all of the other content I create and the things I do are at a cost to myself, and I often find that I am turning down paid work to create other content.

I have decided to launch a Patreon campaign for those who want to contribute to Gaming Rules! Your support will help make things better and produce more content. I want to start doing live Q&A sessions, more short review videos, more interviews, and so on.

Thank you so much for your support!

Goals
$945 of $1,000 per month
The real goal. At this point, the Patreon funds will cover the "costs" it takes me to create the content. Based on the amount of hours it takes me to create the current content, I am currently having to use my savings to cover my time.
