Do you love games? Do you like talking about those games, the hobby in general, and everything they offer? Well, if you’ve ever considered it but were only lacking the platform, we may be able to help.
It’s crazy to think that it’s now been over 2.5 years since our local rag-tag crew pooled our collective love of gaming and launched The Cardboard Republic. Since its inception, we strove to bring people a healthy array of regularly-occurring columns, news updates, Kickstarter previews, a weekly podcast, and our signature-style reviews, where we look at a game’s worth based on who the game caters to.
We’ve done this all in one form or another because we love games. We love the gaming community. And we love being able to bring what we feel are some unique voices to this ever-evolving hobby, even if it does cost us a lot of our free time.
But man, it’s also a ton of work.
Over time, we’ve been forced to contract in some areas so we could expand in others, as we can only do so much in a day. What’s worse is that while we have new projects in the pipeline to unveil in the months ahead, some of our other ambitions have been dormant for too long.
We’re looking to fix that. This is, potentially, where you come in.
We’re currently seeking passionate new contributors, both for specific roles and for more open-ended topic possibilities. Think of this as a CR enlistment opportunity.
If you are an aspiring game reviewer, or simply a writer looking for the right audience to spread your wings, we very well may be able to help.
Besides the desire to increase our overall columnists and continuing our ongoing opportunity for obligation-free guest writing stints, the largest two areas we’re looking for are in trying to get a fleet of LCG games coverage off the ground, as well as us prodding more into the often-underrepresented area of games that are past prototype stage but for one reason or another won’t be heading for large-scale publication.
In the case of LCGs, we think it’d be fun to have individuals report on new packs and other thoughts for each game. In the case of ‘Game Crafter-level games’, we feel that there are many worthwhile games that are worthy of attention that we can’t currently give them. We get a lot of requests for these particularly, and we feel bad that we have to turn so many away due to our normal games queue – even are interesting.
So go ahead and check out what we currently need help with. Read them over. Share them around. If any of them sound interesting, we can be reached on our social media or at info @ cardboardrepublic.com.
