REVIEWS

Thank you for taking an interest in my request for a review. I sincerely appreciate your time and energy. By doing what you love, you are making the community a better place for everyone.

I run a small indie publisher and don't have the resources to advertise constantly or ship review copies to everyone who asks, so I try to find people, like you, who might like my games and accessories. I try to make my products fun, freely available, safe, inclusive, colorblind friendly, durable, recyclable, and plant trees. We even offer a no-packaging option sometimes. A lot of love and work goes into each product.

I'm happy to ship a review copy to you at my own expense for you to review in a timely manner. You are under no obligation to review the product and, more importantly, under no obligation to like the product. Your opinion must be honest and your own, for we do not offer any financial incentive or rewards (other than the product). If you are happy to run a giveaway and ship a copy to a winner at your own expense, I will gladly send one additional copy at the same time. I only ask that you have a genuine interest in the product and allow me to quote you on the nice things you say about said product.

CONTRIBUTIONS

Thank you for being a part of the process of creation. EX1ST GAMES was born out of the Game Design community on boardgamegeek.com and the community-run contests where designers, playtesters, proofreaders and translators have helped improve hundreds of games for everyone to enjoy. These contests focus on free print and play games, some of which become excellent published games. I want to go a step further and promise to publish all of my games as Forever Free Print and Play Games, forever. I can do this thanks to a community of people passionate about the hobby.

Artwork, ideas, feedback, playtesting, writing, proofreading, and translations are kindly accepted as volunteer work and credited as projects develop and move forwards. Every contribution, even the harshest criticism, is appreciated and welcome. In the end, I am responsible for making the best use of your contribution. Sometimes it's hard to keep track of every contribution. Please use email as the best way to record (and later find) your input and our interactions. I truly appreciate everything you have done for my games and gaming accessories. Thank you for letting me quote all the nice things you say about our products.
