Where is the best place to write reviews? Just as a comment on the game in my collection? Or is there a better place? I feel like I read something somewhere about review and session articles.

Where can I find information about that?

Go to the game's page. When you post to the Forum, select the review category. That makes it a review! Have fun!

Okay, so what is the difference between and "In-depth Review" and just the "forums" section?

"Reviews" is one of several categories you can select when you create forum posts. A selection reviews will appear under "In-depth Review" (although I'm not sure what the selection is based on).

Note that if you post a review, it won't be published until an admin has approved it.

'In-depth' reviews are just reviews that are posted in the 'review' section and filtered to only show those best received.

All reviews should be posted in the relevant game's 'review' selection. This way they will be seen by the most interested parties now and in the future.

All 'reviews', 'sessions' and 'strategy' threads will go through Geekmod and if accepted the author will receive geek gold.

Sessions and strategies didn't have to through Geekmod before. Has this been changed recently? (If so, thanks for the update!)

So Session have always and I thought strategy did too... though it seems in the latter I am wrong.

Reviews and Sessions both go through Geekmod. Everything where the user checks the box "This is a good post - Please consider for Geek Gold", does too.
