A Pawn’s Perspective was founded in 2016 to be a gaming geek’s view of the multitude of board games produced every year. Over the years, it has continually evolved to become what it is now. Here you can expect to find curated reviews of items that interest me, articles on various topics, and video reviews of awesome RPG accessories. Sometimes you may even find a guest post or two from some of my awesome family of fellow nerds. As always, A Pawn’s Perspective remains a safe space for all gamers, following my #youarewelcomeatmytable mentality.

Review Policy

Updated 9/13/2020

Most products that I recieve for review are sent to me free of charge. I will always state this fact at the bottom of a post where this is the case. This fact does not color my opinions on said products in any way, shape, or form. There are also times where I review a product I have purchased on my own or received as a gift. I will disclose this at the bottom of the post as well and does not have any bearing on reviews. I speak my mind and have done so for more than ten years writing about games.

Preview Policy

At this point, A Pawn’s Perspective will no longer preview games that are still in development, or cover games currently on, or heading to any crowdfunding platforms such as Kickstarter, Indiegogo, etc. For digital titles, this includes demos and early access games.
