Here at The Game of Nerds, our passions are the same as yours, and a shared passion is a powerful thing. We’ve created this site so that people who have something to say have a safe and creative space to talk about it. And you may not have realized it, but just by visiting this page, you’ve already become part of the team!

The Game of Nerds is an open environment where fans and writers alike converge and talk about the things we all love. Whether it’s movies, TV shows, books, video games, cosplay, or just the fandom life in general, you love it; we talk about it. And the simple reason is that we love it too.

With writers of all ages from around the world and millions of fans, The Game of Nerds has grown at a fast rate. It’s a nerd army.

This is where you come in. The Game of Nerds up until 2018 has been entirely self-funded by our Founder, Shannon Parola. We’ve become entirely self-sufficient in covering necessary website costs in the past couple of years. But to grow and continue to be a force in the nerd world, we need your help. We want to build our website platform, post more ads, grow our staff, and practically take over the nerd world.

Our Founder has created something personal and unique in this day and age. We accept all writers regardless of whether they are new or professional. All of our authors own their content on the website. We’ve had multiple authors use their writing portfolios here and move onto paid writing jobs at CNN, Forbes, and Variety. The Game of Nerds doesn’t take money for product reviews. No major network or company sponsors or funds us, and we don’t sell articles to other places. Why? Because our brand and values make us unique, the second we join the rat race is the second we’ve let our fans down.

See, this is a special place because we listen to you, the fans, because we ARE fans. The Game of Nerds was created because writers and fans were tired of the content other paid sites are forcing on their fan base. We were tired of being told, “that’s now how we do things” and “you can’t do that,” so we did it. And to keep it a unique place where the staff and fans have a shared and common goal, a shared commodity, we’re asking for you your help.

All the money The Game of Nerds receives goes to The Game of Nerds. No one gets paid to do this. The pure love of fandom drives us, same as you. Not only will your contributions help with day-to-day operations and long-term goals, but you will forever have a place on The Game of Nerds website and in our hearts. Think of it as a personalized “brick in the wall” that will keep this house standing for many years, complete with your name, should you choose.

Help comes in many forms, not just dollars, and for The Game of Nerds, the most important thing to us in the world is our readers. That’s why we do what we do. Your input and enthusiasm drive us to be better and bring you the content you deserve.

If you can’t support us financially, please don’t worry. You can help us without spending money. You can like us on social media to show you care. You can share our work with your friends, family, and coworkers to gain new fans. Finally, you can engage with our content, so we continue to grow on social media.
