Everything Board Games 2016 Year End Review And Top Tens


During the Christmas break I was pondering about all that we have been able to accomplish in 2016 here at Everything Board Games and thought I would share some of it with you.


Giveaways
In 2016 we ran 77 giveaways (as of 12/27/2016) and have had 172 happy winners.



We gave away everything from Scythe to board game posters and have had many different sponsors like Blue Orange Games, Renegade Games, and Miniature Market. See all our giveaways and winners at http://www.everythingboardgames.com/p/giveaways.html.


Reviews
2016 also saw the formation of the Everything Board Game Network, a collection of game enthusiast delivering honest high quality game reviews. In total we reviewed 77 games (as of 12/30/2016) in 2016. You can see our top 10 reviewed games at http://bit.ly/2hzCsC4 and all our reviews/previews at http://www.everythingboardgames.com/p/reviews.html.


Kickstarter Projects
In 2016 we spotlighted 14 different Kickstarter games and launched our Featured Kickstarter page which highlights different Kickstarter projects that have caught our attention.
