About Tabletop Games Blog

Who am I?

My name is Oliver Kinne. I live by the sunny south coast of the United Kingdom and have been playing modern tabletop games for over 15 years. I have also enjoyed writing fiction since I was in my teens. So in May 2018, I started a blog combining my two hobbies.

The Tabletop Games Blog is about all things board, card, dexterity and other modern games. Every week there is a new review and a topic discussion piece, all of which are also released in audio format on the podcast.

I also produce the Let me illustrate podcast, where board game artists answer a catalogue of 17 questions about themselves.

I am an associate writer for There Will Be Games and a contributing author to The Tabletop Spirit digital magazine, which is an honour and allows me to share my articles with a wider audience.

What is the Patreon about?

First and foremost, every single pledge gives me the impetus to continue doing what I love doing - and which I hope you enjoy too - writing and talking about all things tabletop games. That moral support is incredibly precious.

From an economic point of view, your support helps me offset the cost of web hosting, buying games for reviews, maintaining my podcast and other equipment and generally paying for everything.

My ultimate goal is that your support allows me to reduce my hours at my day job, so I can focus on the blog and everything else I do in the hobby and community. Already, I have been able to reduce my day job by half a day a week, which has helped me achieve more for Tabletop Games Blog.

What do you get?

First of all, you get my sincerest thanks. As I said above, the moral support every pledge provides is invaluable.

Secondly, and irrespective of what tier you pledge at:

  • your name will be listed on a thank you page on the blog,
  • be read out at the end of the Tabletop Games Blog podcast episodes,
  • as well as shown at the end of the videos, and
  • I will thank you for your support in a tweet when you first become a patron or when you upgrade your support.
Please note: I create a lot of my content in advance, so your name may not appear for a few weeks after becoming a supporter.
Higher tiers offer additional perks, of course. There are pin badges, dice, dice trays and t-shirts. Please check out the tiers for more details.

How can you help?

If you feel my articles, tweets, podcastsvideos or my activity in the community are worth your support, then please check out the tiers and choose one that suits you best. I really appreciate every single pledge, at whatever tier you feel comfortable with!

If Patreon isn't your thing, then you can also support me monthly or make a one-off payment via Ko-Fi. If you want to help me and treat yourself at the same time, then buy yourself a cool Tabletop Games Blog t-shirt or hoodie from my Sir Meeple merchandise store.

Of course, if none of the above works for you, then telling people about what I do is also very much appreciated and would help me a lot. Sharing what I do would be wonderful of you.
