What We Do | Casual Game Revolution

What We Do

Casual Game Revolution is an organization that aims to make board gaming more accessible to people of all ages. We are passionate about casual games — relatively quick games that are easy to learn and teach, yet offer some light strategy. We are trying to break away from previous traditions by simplifying the gaming experience and reducing the barriers typically associated with gaming. Learn more about these barriers in this article.

We are striving to gather a large community of "casual gamers" who love casual games as much as we do. We want to connect these people to others who share the same interests and provide opportunities for them to discover great games — without having to sift through all the noise that exists in the board gaming hobby. We also want to encourage them to get more involved in their local communities by attending and supporting their local gaming communities.

To accomplish our purposes, we evaluate and/or review hundreds of new board games each year, recognize the best games through our game awards program, work with dozens of authors and sponsors to create Casual Game Insider magazine, maintain a database of local game conventions, highlight the best casual games on Kickstarter each month, and publish a monthly newsletter for many thousands of subscribers. In addition to our magazine subscribers, we are funded by game publishers and other companies who wish to sponsor us in exchange for marketing opportunities.

Why We Do It

Casual gaming matters. We are working tirelessly to find and promote the best casual games on the market today. Why? We are truly excited about casual games and we believe that more people need to discover them to experience the joy and face-to-face interaction that only come through board gaming. We believe board games offer a fantastic social experience that is fun, educational, engaging, and challenging. We want to expand the horizons of how board gaming is engaged in, talked about, and shared.

Together, we can bring casual gaming into the spotlight for everyone to see and get excited about!
