You’ve stumbled into our Patreon! Welcome! 

Thank you so much for checking out our channel and for your interest in becoming a patron. Your support helps us financially, BUT IT ALSO MAKES US REALLY REALLY HAPPY. 

What is GGS

GGS is a one shop stop for the feminine perspective on board games with a quick yet thorough  tutorial, highlights of gameplay footage and interviews with the player. Our players are diverse in their backgrounds, so you get perspectives from both veteran and new players. 

Our newer series, The Corner Shelf (named by Patron, TR Knight) is less about the story that happened, and more of a straight review with multiple opinions. It's just as awesome as the original series, but different enough to need a new name.

Once a month we're releasing All By Myshelf (named by Patron and website designer, Derek Houck). That series is Kiki drinking wine and talking about the latest solo game that she's been playing. 


Recently we've expanded to include written content, curated by AnnaMaria Jackson-Phelps. Our website includes reviews, interviews with women in games, and more. 

Why do we need funding?
Because making this show is expensive and everyone is volunteering to make it happen. Though it is indeed a labor of love, we can't sustain it that way. Thanks to our current patrons, we are able to cover the base costs or running the website and channel. Our next goal is to pay the folks that help us make it happen. If we can pay our people, we can make more content. 

Why support us?
We've put together some great tiers in exchange for your support. Aside from those perks,  you will get access to our monthly livestream, where we get feedback and discuss what's on the horizon for GGS. Patrons also get early access to all of our videos, as well as some content exclusively created for patrons, such as rough cuts and works in progress.
And by supporting us, you're supporting everyone that works on the show and the blog!

Thanks
So far, working on Girls' Game Shelf been an amazing experience that has led to meeting many new friends within the hobby. Whether you've been with us from the beginning, or you've just discovered our channel, thanks for your interest in joining us on this journey. Your patronage keeps the show alive!
