What Is Board Simple?


Board Simple is a website with video guides to help people learn how to play games.

Where Has Board Simple Been?


If you know anything about Board Simple already, you know that it's been around for a few years now. You also know it's been awhile since any new games have been released. 

So, why has it been so long?
 
Well, the truth is, it was a lot of work to keep the site going. The team was getting really exhausted. Well, by team, I mean I was getting really exhausted. Board Simple is composed of one, female entrepreneur who can't seem to figure out how to give up on her dreams.

That's right! That same girl you hear in the videos was studying the game rules, shooting the videos, editing videos, taking pictures, and writing the HTML code for the game guides. As I mentioned, it was a lot of work.

What's Changed with Board Simple?


During my long hiatus from Board Simple, I noticed that without doing anything with it, I was still getting YouTube subscribers. People were commenting on how much they enjoyed the videos and asking when more would be coming out.

I've come to realize that I need to follow the name of the site itself and make it more simple. Previously Board Simple had several more components, now I'm just going to focus on videos only. 

Only focusing on the videos will also make it much easier for me to continue doing this and helping people learn about games. 

How Often Will Board Simple Be Releasing Videos?


A lot of work goes into making a video for Board Simple. It takes several hours just to figure out how to organize the rules of a game into a script for a video. I'm a perfectionist, and sometimes I torture myself with the details. With that said, new videos will be released when I have enough time to complete them. Some games are also really complicated and have rule books that resemble a novel. I try my best to organize the rules into easy to understand chunks, so it takes time to get through some longer games. 

With that said, at most, I'd be releasing one new video per week. At least, 1 per month.   

Why Is Board Simple Using Patreon?


I really enjoy making videos for Board Simple, but it's a lot of work. I'd love to see if I can get Board Simple going and then expand it into something greater. 

My ultimate dream for Board Simple is to be able to use it to help teach children to play games and integrate them into schools and youth programs. Games have so much value beyond entertainment. There are several chances for developing skills with games such as critical thinking skills, problem solving, communication, team work and even mathematics. 

I've worked in schools in the past and have come to realize that some kids just learn differently. I think it would be so awesome to integrate games into learning!

How Does Patreon Work?


Basically, you can think of Patreon as a tip jar. Each month, you'll be able to throw me a tip for my work!

The great thing about Patreon is that you can give whatever you are comfortable with and end your contribution at any time you need to.

You can also put caps on the amount of money you give, so you will never be surprised.
