The review format has changed over time, and (d)evolved to our Review-a-palooza, where Donald and Erik discuss a selection of games ending with an older game. Games reviewed are from a variety of sources including the publishers as review copies.
Fan-generated segments, topic suggestions, and review requests are always welcome.

We rate games that we have in our collection, though we will also rate games we’ve played at our local game groups or events we’ve attended. Some of the games we review have been given to us by publishers. It is our goal to provide objective reviews regardless of how we get the games. We are creating our reviews for the listeners and not for the companies, so will attempt to remain impartial and honest.
While we welcome game submissions from companies, we do not guarantee that a game submitted will be reviewed.
On Board Games uses a simple Red, Yellow, Green three-tier gaming rating system. The Red, Yellow, Green systems is not a Ranking system, we don't give a final judgment on games in relation to each other. Instead we rate the game based on whether we are likely to play it again and how often.
You can contact us through our contributors' individual websites, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d be happy to hear any feedback you have to offer.
