The Australian board game industry and hobby is a rather small one, we still have relatively few stores and limited access to games, often due to high shipping and import costs.

Next Player was started to review games in Australia (from both Australia and overseas) and start to grow the hobby further in Australia. Next Player is an independent Australian board game review site and is not sponsored or backed by any company or organisation, as a result we are able to offer fair and unbiased reviews of the games that we play and review. If you have a game that you would like us to review please check out or Developers page for further details.

We do not receive any payment for reviews, and only receive review copies (when noted) of games to play, we do have affiliate links for several stores, however there is no affiliation to these stores – affiliate fees are used to keep the site running.
