I review iOS board games for a website. How do I post those video reviews here on BGG? The web site is The Dice Tower. I can't figure out where to click, who to contact, or whatever it is I need to do. Also, how could I get a reviewer badge?

Thanks in advance!

Type in the name of the game in the search field at the top of the page, hit enter, click on the specific game from the list should a list show up.

Then scroll down to the "video" section of that particular game's webpage and click on "Add".

The video has to be hosted on Youtube or Vimeo to use this method. Click on all the applicable buttons on the subsequent page.

Just above the main text field you'll find a Youtube button and a Vimeo button. Click the one that's appropriate and enter in the video's number, which can be found in the video's URL on either Youtube or Vimeo. Then hit enter, submit, and you're good to go!

I know of no other way to embed video here without being an admin, but I believe they can be embedded via the BGG buttons in any post, be it a forum post, geeklist or blog here on BGG.

Hope this helps!

Edit: An issue I hadn't thought about before: I'm not sure if iOS versions of board games get put in the videogamegeek database vs. the boardgamegeek database. You can switch between the domains by clicking the appropriate tab at the top of the page, but I'd send the following admin a private message by clicking on the envelope just below the admin's username and above his avatar. Ask him just what you asked here, but ask which domain your reviews should be posted on, either boardgamegeek or videogamegeek. He'll steer you in the right direction.

Anyways, here's the admin:

I would say that iOS video reviews should go under the appropriate game item on VGG rather than on BGG, just as reviews for Catan would be most-appropriate for that VGG entry rather than the BGG entry.

Thanks so much for the help. I've been doing reviews for The Dice Tower for a few months and couldn't figure it out! Much appreciated.
