Hi,

Im looking to interview some designers for my monthly newsletter at pixygamesuk and in particular around board game design and theories. If you'd like to be involved please let me know. I have seen some amazing posts on here where some go beyond what id expect.

Please reply or drop me a PM. It will be short and will be about what tips you can offer our readers. My blog gets around 200-300 monthly hits so I will see about introducing interviews to that also.

Thanks

Jay

You might get some good responses by sending private messages to designers whose work you like. Most game designers are happy to talk about their work.

Boosted the signal to a couple dozen designers who might not hit BGG as often as I do.

I thought rather than me bother people I'd see if any where willing to drop me a message. I will see if I get any replies through this way first and if not I will contact a few directly.

Generally speaking -

The lesser known (if at all) designers are likely happy to get any notice they can. And would likely be happy to do an interview.

Better known designers might not need any exposure or simply might not find any benefit in the investment of time.

I imagine to get the interviews of better known designers you're going to have to do more work than a vanilla post on BGG. Might need to court 'em. There's really no incentive for them to reach out to you for an interview.

Nevertheless, acts of kindness are surprisingly abundant on BGG. So you never know.

Thanks for the replies. I have a big one lined up which will was due to be featured on the blog Monday 1st August, although for some reason it displayed it now. But I will will keep it on the blog so please do check it out.

I have already had another contact me which is brilliant, so everything is ramping up nicely. I am going to schedule in some more interviews over the next 12 months and I really hope these and light interviews, not too indeph and give something to the community.

Please do get in touch if you would like to be interviewed. I will keep it light hearted and person centred.
