BSoMT is passionate about boardgames and always happy, if game designers/ creators/ publishers so wish to consider BSoMT for any reviewing, previewing, Kickstarter reviews, playtesting or dissecting of any tabletop board/card game that is…or, indeed, are…

  • a multi-player game with a good solo variant
  • Co-operative games (especially with adaptations to improve solo play)
  • or games aimed purely at solitaire gamers.
  • …or in fact any board or card game for that matter!

…there will always be an honest opinion given, be it positive or not so, even if occasionally delivered in a less than conventional manner, but always constructive with criticism. I strive to give an in depth look at gow a game feels and plays, with a great focus on gaming experience more than a “how to play”.

Costs/charges/fees: I review on a volontary basis without charge because I feel paid reviews may have an unbiased slant to the opinions given. If you have a game that you think you would like  BSoMT to review, please feel free to contact me (Giles Pound at Both Sides of My Table) Although I ask for no fee, if I was expected to send on a game to another reviewer, I would ask for such postage to be covered.

Timescale: This is very much dependant on the size and complexity of a game…and how full a schedule there is, but on receipt of a game I would aim to play (many times to get a real feel for a game) and review within 7-14 days.

BSoMT can always be reached by e-mail on or via direct message on Twitter and via the BSoMT facebook page

  1. Hi there, I have an idea to change a bit of wording.

    “Communal Solitaire” instead of “Cooperatively Solitaire” is shorter.

    1. Thank you for the suggestion…I see what you are saying but my initial idea was that Cooperatively Solitaire was set up to look at cooperative games and how well they work with just one solitaire player operating all components…or those coops games that alter game play for one …
