Why can't you just have a standard donation system where I can choose any money amount ?

With this "club" system, we try to highlight players who have supported this website recently or do so on a regular basis. Depending on the amount of your donation, you are a member of the club for a given period of time.

Many websites are using a more classic approach with a simple "donation box". By experience, we know that these websites rely on just a few generous users. Board Game Arena has chosen to set 3 fixed amounts for donations, in order to rely on a bigger number of small donors.

Is it mandatory to join the club ?

Of course not.

You can play for free with few limitation even if you are not a member of the club: Board Game Arena is a free service. Statistics are just an extra! You don't need statistics to play and have fun, do you? As a matter of fact, most players are not club members.

What is a beginner account ? beginner.gif

When you join Board Game Arena, you get a "beginner account" (beginner.gif) for 30 days. This beginner account allows you to view your own ELO ranking (rank.png) for each game. After 30 days, your account becomes a standard non-member account (free.gif).

What becomes of the money ?

Board Game Arena's service is managed by a semi-professional team who needs money to make it run (in particular: hosting cost).

Player donations are used to develop this website (new features, new games), to make it run (hosting, maintenance), to build the player community (events)...

A big "thank you" to all members of the Board Game Arena Club whose contributions allow this website to exist for the enjoyment of everyone !
