Life as a Golden Reviewer: Interviewing the Big Boys

Tom Vasel. Greg Schloesser. Neil Thomson. Matt Drake.

These are some of the big names on BGG, all of whom have written over 200 reviews, and have been long-standing members of the site. There are well known video reviewers that I admire too - Scott Nicholson, Jeremy Salinas, and UndeadViking to name a few - but none of these have produced quite the same astounding volume of reviews, over an extended period of time, as the above mentioned names have. At any rate, they've used a different medium, which is equally valuable but in a different way, and today I'm just zeroing in on written views.

The Golden Reviewer microbadge is awarded to those who have written 100 or more reviews (separate badges are being adopted for video reviewers). As of last month there were only 17 veteran BGGers who qualified for the circle of golden reviewers.

So what do these folks have to say about games and reviewing? Last month I decided to find out by interviewing them. Check out what they had to say here:

Join the discussion: What do you consider to be some of the hallmarks of a successful review? What do you think about the diversity of review types and styles on BGG?
(You'll find some of my own answers to these questions on the above-mentioned GeekList.)
