Whilst I’ is something of a passion project there are various running costs producing it – annual domain & web hosting fees, software subscriptions plus my time researching, buying the games and writing the posts.

I’ve always hated those websites that are cluttered with banner ads and pop ups. Some so much it’s difficult to actually identify the content!  I didn’t want I’mboard to become yet another digital doormat of flyers and pamphlets for people to wade through, and running an online store and managing an inventory seemed like a lot of hard work and something of a time sink. Consequently I decided to try affiliate links as a potential income stream to cover my running costs. 

I’ve chosen Amazon’s affiliates scheme on the basis that their range of products and global reach is unparalleled. Coupled with same/next day delivery and a straight forward returns policy.

If enough of you click on those affiliate links and buy a game it’ll hopefully cover my costs and still leave a little something leftover for me to indulge the family in the odd cake-based treat, meal out, or trip to the local board games cafe.

Appreciate your time, hope it was a pleasant browse.

How it works

If you opt to purchase the reviewed product from Amazon after clicking on one of my affiliate links, Amazon distribute a small percentage of the payment they receive from you as a commission to me by way of thanks for redirecting you to their store.

You’ll never be charged more for using my affiliate links. Woohoo! {fist pump}

In the UK (as at Nov 2021), for products purchased from their toys & games category I would receive a 6%* commission of the sale price excluding sales taxes (VAT) and postage costs.

So, for an average priced game – say £20 (approx. EUR24/USD28) sold in the UK I would receive approximately £1 commission BUT only if one of my affiliate links was clicked AND the purchase completed within 24 hours.

*commission percentages may vary across product categories and across Amazon sites.
