Any member of There Will Be Games may submit content to the site. Therefore, you must create a site account.
We accept text articles, podcasts and videos about board games and board game adjacent subjects. This includes, but is not limited to, written reviews, news, essays & articles, blogs, interviews, board game strategy and board game culture, as well as podcasts & videos on these subjects.
We do not accept paid promotional content as stand alone items. For example, if a publisher paid you money to produce a preview or instructional video for a game, we will not publish it as a stand alone video. With permission, this type of content may be included in a specific board game entry or news item.
We do not accept unboxing videos.
We do not accept partial or teaser content with links to the the full article on another site.
All work must be your own, with the exception of publisher's game descriptions which are acceptable when submitting games to the Game Directory, Upcoming Game News, and Kickstarter News section; and press releases when submitted to the Press Release section.
Choose the type of content you wish to submit from the Submission Menu. Fill out the form and click the submit button at the bottom. This will take you to a page where you can add the main image for your submission.

Special Instructions for First Time Submissions
If you wish to submit a podcast, video or want to include images in the body of an article, please contact us using the contact button at the top of this page. These functions are disabled by default to protect the website, and must be turned on for your account.
Special Instructions for Submitting Kickstarters or Upcoming Board Game Releases
Use the appropriate form listed under the News section in the menu (New Game Release Announcements, Kickstarters, Press Releases, Published Games). The body of the "article" should be a description of the game. Publisher's descriptions are acceptable. Information such as "funded in 8 hours" is irrelevant and should not be included. Reviews, interviews, press releases and the like are not descriptions of the game. These types of articles should be submitted to the appropriate section.

Nothing. No one gets paid here. There is no charge to run your submission.
