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!

Its time to game! In addition to the previous tiers, you will also be playing in a game run by Chris Renshaw (once a year). This will either be done remotely, or at a convention if you are at the same one as Chris.

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. Since then, the majority of the content on the site has been focused on tabletop gaming: board games, card games, roleplaying games, etc. 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. Down below, you can see our podcasts, which are our most popular content.

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!

The Boards & Swords podcast is our most popular show, a podcast having fun talking about board games. Featuring Chris Renshaw, Collin Pastorius, Cindy Pastorius, and Philip Herbig, these four friends talk about how different their tastes of games are and use jokes, reviews, and game shows to make the world of tabletop gaming entertaining for everyone.

The Dirtbags of Holding is our Roleplaying Game (RPG) "Actual Play" podcast. What that means is that Chris Renshaw, Cory Harrop, Jimmy Pritts, Chris Nickel, 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.

At this level, once a month we will be producing an episode of Boards & Swords Presents Tangled in the Slipstring! This will be a special RPG actual play podcast with all the Boards & Swords hosts where they play as Cats in a custom scifi setting that Chris is building with some awesome talent. These episodes will be exclusive to patrons only as a way of saying thanks!
