Wall of Patrons

Patreon is a membership platform that makes it easy for creators to cover their expenses. BGNews has created a Patreon dedicated to our YouTube channel. 

We started off the YouTube channel with Essen coverage. We took videos from Essen, interviews with designers and publishers, saw new games and tried to transfer the vibe. However the lack of appropriate equipment and hands made it impossible to actually edit and upload over 60 videos in a short period of time. 

So we paused the YouTube channel. In mid-2017 we upgraded our equipment, made some experimentation on what we want to do and we ended up to the 2 min reviews. 



The answer is simple. Because everybody has 2 minutes to spare to take a look at a video and decide if they want to search more for a game or not. These reviews do not aim to teach you how to play a game or give you a full review. 




This is our wall to thank everybody who has become a patron and helps us out in this effort. Special Thanks to

Gamer Leaf

Our Review Philosophy

Our goal in BGNews is  to provide reviews that give you a comprehensive overview of the games that we review, by showcasing pros and cons of each game. We try to evaluate different aspects of each game, that will help you create your own view of the game. Aspects that are being examined are the following:

  • Gameplay
  • Component Quality
  • Luck vs Strategy
  • Rules
  • Downtime
  • Replayability
  • Difficulty
  • Interaction
  • Setup Time


And what about the score?

We do not score the games we review. Yes, we do this intentionally. Each of us is different and hence, we have different opinions on the games. Through our review system we try to help you form an opinion, but we do not wish to push ours. This is why we avoid scoring. After all each and every game out there deserves a 10 for someone.


Paid Reviews?

No review in this site is paid. The review copies are most of the times provided by the companies. Not a single one of the people writting in BGNews has ever been paid to write a review, or express any of the opinions on this website. We love games and we want you to love them too :)
