Voice Chucker

per month
SHOUT-OUT!  We will shout out your name on our shows and thank you for your support, because you rock!

You will also get access to our exclusive patron-only slack channel to talk with us about whatever's on your mind.


per month
You are our DIE-hard fans! At this level, we will read a small message from you promoting a business/podcast/etc (once a year) - or, if you prefer, Chris will create a custom Dad-joke level pun about your favorite game.

In addition, to show our thanks, you will get a couple of special custom made Boards & Swords dice once a year so you can show people how awesome you are!

T-Shirt Chucker (One of those cannons)

per month
Now I really want one of those T-shirt guns that I could use to shoot merch, but you can pretend I did by backing at this level. At this level, not only do you get the puns and dice, but included in your swag bag once a year you'll get a Boards & Swords themed t-shirt! Either one of our existing designs or a brand new one (depending on how long backed)! (Must be a patron for at least half a year to get a shirt)

About Boards & Swords

Boards & Swords is a website founded in 2010 (originally called "Obsessive Comics Disorder) by Chris Renshaw to talk about how crazy we can get about the nerdy hobbies we enjoy. The Boards & Swords podcast is our most popular show, a podcast featuring bad jokes, good folks, and having fun talking about board games. Featuring Chris Renshaw and Philip Herbig, these two friends use jokes, reviews, and game shows to make the world of tabletop gaming entertaining for everyone.

Over the years we've grown to feature other voices and expand the type of content we create: podcasts, YouTube videos, live streaming, blog posts, etc. 

Why a patreon? We want to do more! We already spent a lot of time and effort putting together these podcasts and videos, but we have reached what we can reasonably achieve. With your support, we want to be able to improve our equipment to make our content even more impressive!

If Roleplaying Games (RPGs) are your thing, then The Dirtbags of Holding is our RPG "Actual Play" podcast. What that means is that Chris Renshaw, Cory Harrop, Jimmy Pritts, and Philip Herbig get together and play through various RPGs. We show off the best way to play these games, by which we mean the absolute worst way to play them - throwing each other for a loop in order to get a laugh.

Let's hang out and chat! At this level, once a month(ish) Chris will host a "Patreon only" stream, where you can chat about whatever is on your mind. Also, this is a podcast about games, so lets play some - either video games like Jackbox/Among Us, or even some Roll & Writes.
