Hi! I’m Erik, the creator of On Golden Age, a photo-driven blog on all aspects of tabletop gaming. OGA’s mission is to be a friendly destination to learn about games, no matter the experience or knowledge level of the reader.

What type of content will you find at On Golden Age?
  • “How Tos” and advice for those new to tabletop gaming.
  • Game highlights and top-level reviews.
  • Analysis of trends and news in the tabletop gaming world.
  • Interviews with notable people in the tabletop gaming world.

On Golden Age has been ad-free and supported by ourselves and a few awesome donors. However, expenses are adding up, so I've decided to start a Patreon campaign to help continue On Golden Age.

What is Patreon?
Patreon is a service for people to support creators on a monthly basis so they can continue to create stuff for everyone to enjoy. In return, creators may offer rewards to their patrons and everyone wins! By having independent patrons, I don’t have to run ads, make clickbait, or pursue corporate sponsorships to continue making content for OGA and grow its readership. I will be serving my readers and patrons 100%.

How do I become a patron?
Easy! Just click the orange button above or select a reward on the right of this page - the reward tiers features various things or experiences you will receive depending on your monthly pledge level. Over on the left side of the page is the current monthly goals I’m working towards. Learn more about my goals for this campaign here. I will post progress reports on the Patreon feed as we go, and celebrate milestones with my patrons!

Thank you SO MUCH for reading and all your feedback! I’m excited to take readers on this journey with me, and to welcome you as an OGA patron!

GAME ON.

Your very own post!  I’ll write an exclusive 700ish-word post, including two photographs, just for you. I will write about any tabletop game-related topic you choose. Yes, if you want me to photograph and write a review of Candy Land for you, I will do it. This content will not be posted on the site; only you will have the article and accompanying photographs. All previous rewards included. This is a one-time reward. It is limited to three patrons right now, but I will open it up to more if demand increases.

I will teach a game and/or play a game with you! Meet me at Red Castle Games, the friendliest game store in Portland, Oregon, and I’ll show you how to play a game from Red Castle’s extensive rental library, or one you bring. If there is a particular title you already know, I’ll just play (and likely lose!) It’s up to you. All previous rewards included. This is a one-time reward. It is limited to two patrons right now, but I will open it up to more if demand increases. Certain restrictions apply: game length ideally under two hours, and no NSFW games, please. Transportation is up to you.

Be my guest at GameStorm 21, Saturday, March 30th, 2019 in Portland, Oregon! I’ll take care of your membership and even cover lunch. We’ll hang out and play games all day at the con. How cool is that! All previous rewards included. This is a limited one-time reward, available only for one patron who can commit to a multi-month pledge, please. Transportation is up to you.
Goals
$37 of $40 per month
The first step! Reaching this goal will allow me to be able to cover both monthly website hosting costs and a monthly Adobe Lightroom subscription. Basically, I can keep the lights on!
