Milestone Giveaway

A little over three years ago I decided to start a board game review site. To be honest, I expected it to fizzle out after a few months like my other attempts at blogging. But here we are, hundreds of reviews later, still going strong.

Last November, I was pretty excited to look at my website data and realize that we hit 1,000,000 unique page views. For some established websites, that’s not a big deal, but for us we were elated. I remember when the site would get 10 views in a week! It feels like a long time ago but two and a half years later, we crossed the million mark.

2,000,000And we kept going. Recently, we hit 2,000,000 unique page views. It took us 2.5 years to hit the first million, but only around 9 months to hit the second. We are all pretty excited that so many people enjoy our reviews, musings, and other content. Also, that’s unique page views, total page views are much higher.  🙂

So as 2 mil approached, I decide I should have a little fun with this milestone. And of course, when I say fun that means free games for all of you! So I reached out to some game publishers and asked if they wanted to celebrate with us. While I probably shouldn’t have been surprised (because they are all awesome), I was excited when almost everyone said they wanted to contribute.

All in total they’ve donated about 35 games, expansions, and promos to celebrate this milestone. And we are giving them all away to you, our awesome readers. We would be a lot more lonely without you, so thanks for reading our thoughts over the years.

And 2,000,000 thanks to the awesome publishers who donated games for us to give away. Please hit them all up on Twitter or Facebook and let them know how great they are.
