Send us you suggestions

I’ve been running the Games Paradise blog for a little under a year now and I hope you’ve been finding the articles interesting and informative. But now I’d like to ‘open the floor’ and ask you, the reader, what you’d like to see more of on your favourite gaming blog!

Any suggestions are welcome—you may want more of a particular type of article, more coverage of certain games, or more discussion and feedback. Or you may have technical comments—is something not working for you? If so let us know so we can fix it!

I want the Games Paradise blog to be as useful and interesting as possible, but I need your suggestions to make it so (geeky Star Trek reference)! And just to give you a little incentive, I’m giving away TEN prize packs to the people who make the top ten suggestions; each consisting of a copy of No Thanks! AND Saboteur, two fantastic and fun card games from Z-Man Games.

PLEASE NOTE: this competition is solely concerned with the Games Paradise blog, and not the online store site. While obviously our main aim is to promote Games Paradise as your first stop for your favourite games, the blog is separate from the online store. To be clear, any suggestions concerning the online store will make the entry invalid—I’m after feedback on the blog, not the online store. 🙂

Make those suggestions as practical and useful as possible—and they can be entertaining too if you like! Obviously, ‘giveaways and prizes’ is something we’d all like more of, but I’m sure you can come up with something more interesting than that. We want lots more people to visit the Games Paradise blog, more discussion, and more fun stuff about games and gaming! And we’re also happy to hear what you like and don’t like about the site as it is now.

Get thinking and send in your suggestions via the contact form at the bottom of this page! Entries close next Monday the 25th July, and winners will be notified soon after.

  1. Hi, i think it would be great to have some interviews with famous game designers or people from well game companies, and get an inside look at some of our favorite games.

    Such questions could be asked as “What inspired the idea for the game’
    , “How long was the development process” etc

    A great start would be interviewing Richard Launius,, designer of Arkham Horror.

    This of course could just be a phone or email interview, we cant have you je tsetting all over the world to meet game designers can we? 🙂

  2. Yes we can have me jetset all over the world! You’ll have to buy lots more games for me to justify the cost, however … 😉

    Thanks for the suggestion Shane, and I’ll see if I can call in some favours! In fact, I already have Adam West, designer of the upcoming Ninjato, tentatively lined up for an interview. Stay tuned! 🙂
