Major changes to Bock’s Games.

Major changes and stuff in the works. Let’s discuss that.

NEW! WRITTEN REVIEWS.
We’ve decided to expand from Instagram and YouTube into full written reviews right here on our website. Potentially some news as well? We’ll also post those reviews on BGG. We’re really excited about this and it’ll allow us to expand exponentially in the amount of content we can offer our fans. Our plan is once a week and most of them will be written by Cathy. She’s much more critical than I am, so expect a very different look at games. These should begin soon after GenCon at the latest.

NEW! PHOTOGRAPHY. 
We’re going to start doing more photography for the board game industry. I am thrilled that we’ve already had some orders and we’re excited to see our pictures in the world. If you’re interested, drop us a line.

ON HOLD! THE PODCAST.
So yeah. About that podcast. We’ve decided to put it on indefinite hold. We liked the idea of it and felt it would work well but to be honest and after much soul searching and regret — we just don’t have the time available to us to give it the time and attention it deserves. We wanted to do once a week at minimum and unfortunately it’d be closer to once a month. We’re going to evaluate our options this fall and see if it’s possible but right now, it simply isn’t. We deeply appreciate the support however and as always we feel doing something isn’t worth doing unless it can be done well.

UPDATE! YOUTUBE CHANNEL.
Things are going VERY well with the YouTube channel behind the scenes. I’d love to touch on all that. We’ve finalized our setup for the show. The addition of a mic stand has been a big improvement in audio quality. Eventually we’re going to upgrade our post production software, but for now it does the job very well. We’re also aiming to publish one episode a week. Right now it’s once or twice a month, but we think we can do better. As well we have a bunch of new sponsors providing games to our channel and we couldn’t be more grateful for their support. And as always, regardless as to our sponsors, we’ll keep our reviews honest. Our plans are to diversify our videos as well. I’ll be doing some top ten videos, more maker videos, some super short reviews for smaller games, potentially tips on painting your miniatures, customizing games, etc etc. Reviews will always come first but we feel having more content is important. We’ve also decided that for the time being we’re not going to do full rules overviews. There are some excellent channels out there like Gaming Rules and Watch it Played that do this way better than we ever could. We’re also exploring some live feed options (potentially of Cathy and I playing some games) as well as full play throughs with some of our game night friends. We’ll see.

GENCON 2018! COME FIND ME!
Hey guys. I am so so so excited for GenCon 2018. Aren’t you? I am also excited to meet all of you, so please be sure to stop me and say hello. I’ll be helping at the Keymaster Games booth — how cool is that? I might also be doing a giveaway so be sure to watch my YouTube channel for updates!
