Welcome to the subscription list for my regular board game reviews. They all go up first on my blog - http://goplaylisten.com/ - and then here a few days later. Thanks for your interest - all feedback welcome!

There's several reasons why I do a mix of older and newer games. First I don't have an unlimited budget and will only review a game I've played at least five times, which is hard to do if you don't own it - so if you'd like me to review your game, simply drop me a geekmail and get it over to me!

Secondly, I'm writing them primarily for my blog, much of which I'm trying to aim at newer gamers. This means that if I suggest a game as something people should purchase, I'd like to have a more in-depth review they can then link to and find out more about it. Hence, covering some classics.

Types of review

Four-sided reviews: My standard review format
One play reviews: Games where one play had had a big effect on me
Why I play reviews: These were my earliest attempts at reviewing games
Expansion reviews: Does what it says on the tin...
