About Oliver Kinne

What is this about?

The Tabletop Games Blog is about all things board games and releases two blog articles a week: a review on a Saturday and a topic discussion piece on a Tuesday. There you will also find the podcast series "Let me illustrate", which puts the spotlight on board game artists. Everything is also released in audio format on the podcast.

On our YouTube channel you will find a growing number of unboxing videos and audiograms of the "Let me illustrate" podcast series.

Your support will help me offset the cost of web hosting and buying games for reviews and unboxing videos. It will also allow me to reduce my hours at my day job. However, most importantly, every single pledge gives me the impetus to continue doing what I love doing - and which I hope you enjoy too - writing about all things tabletop games.

Who am I?

My name is Oliver Kinne, and I have been playing modern tabletop games for over 15 years. I also enjoy writing fiction, so in May 2018 I started a blog, combining my two hobbies.

I am an associate writer for There Will Be Games and have contributed articles to The Tabletop Spirit digital magazine.

I also co-host the Tabletop Inquisition podcast with Antoinette from Board Game Inquisition, which releases an episode about once a month where we talk about a different issue facing board games, the people who play them and maybe their industry.

What do you get?

First of all, you get my sincerest thanks. Secondly, and irrespective of what tier you pledge at, your name will be listed on a thank you page on the blog, read out at the end of the Tabletop Games Blog podcast episodes, as well as shown at the end of the videos while you're an active Patreon supporter.

Please note that I create a lot of my content in advance, so your name may not appear for a couple of weeks. However, I'll do my best to get it added as quickly as possible. I will also thank you for your support in a tweet when you first become a patron or when you upgrade your support.

If you are an independent game designer, I will help you playtest your games as much as I can, tweet about them, and do written, podcast and video reviews, if you're happy for me to do so.

All pledges at Dice Master tier or above get a free Tabletop Games Blog 16mm D6 dice to roll all your natural crits with, delivered anywhere in the world free of charge*.

At the Magic Champion tier or above, you get the dice, but also a Tabletop Games Blog dice tray made from smooth polyester with a rubberised underside, measuring 1.9 cm x 1.65 cm, delivered anywhere in the world free of charge*.

At the Royal Patron tier, you are in for a real treat. You will get the dice and dice tray, as mentioned above, and after two months of membership, you get a free Tabletop Games Blog t-shirt in grey with the brown logo (men's or women's), delivered free of charge anywhere in the world*.

* Note: Backers will ever only get one dice, one dice tray and/or one t-shirt, which will be shipped in the most cost-effective, not necessarily the fastest way, and only after payment for the first month's membership was taken successfully - or in the case of the t-shirt, after two months' payments were successfully taken.

What now?

If you feel my articles, tweets, podcastsvideos or my activity in the community are for you, please support me here on Patreon, at whatever tier you feel comfortable. I really appreciate every single pledge! The pledge tiers are intentionally kept small, because even a dollar a month means there is someone somewhere who likes what I do.

If you prefer to just make a one-off pledge, you can make a donation via PayPal or you can buy me a coffee via Ko-Fi. I'll post a photo of the coffee I bought with your support on Twitter and will drink it with relish, knowing it'll give me the energy to do more for the tabletop games community.

If you want to help me and treat yourself at the same time, you can buy a cool Tabletop Games Blog t-shirt, hoodie, baseball cap, mug, water bottle, a nice bag from, pin badges and other stuff on my swag shop.

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.

But whatever you do, thank you!

Professional video editing
When I reach this level of support, I will be able to afford professional video editing software and make my unboxing videos even more amazing. Wouldn't that be great?
