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 podcast series "Let me illustrate", which puts the spotlight on board game artists, who answer a catalogue of 17 questions and I make unboxing videos for my YouTube channel. I co-host, as well as edit, the monthly Tabletop Inquisition podcast, where Antoinette from Board Game Inquisition and I talk about issues facing board games, the people who play them and their industry.

I recently launched Tabletop Games Blog Radio, which is a 24/7 internet radio station featuring board game news from the Brainwaves team, interviews with people from the board game industry from the Finding GamesProducing Fun and We’re Not Wizards series, board game chat and some interviews from Tabletop Inquisition, as well as all the other podcast episodes I produce.

I am also an associate writer for There Will Be Games, which features all of my recent articles, and I have contributed articles to The Tabletop Spirit digital magazine.

What is the Patreon about?

Your support will help me offset the cost of web hosting, buying games for reviews and unboxing videos and maintaining my podcast and video recording equipment.

However, my ultimate goal is that the Patreon support will allow me to reduce my hours at my day job, so I can focus on the blog, videos and everything else I do in the hobby and community.

At the end of the day though, 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.

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,
  • 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 dice, dice trays and t-shirts. Please check out the tiers for more details.

What do I do now?

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 the one that suits you best. I really appreciate every single pledge, at whatever tier you feel comfortable with!

If Patreon isn't for you, you can make a one-off donation via PayPal or you can buy me a coffee via Ko-Fi. Also, if you want to help me and treat yourself at the same time, you can buy 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.

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?
