The Average Gamer is a motley band of independent gamers who love writing about games. If you like what we do and want to help us do it better, there are a few ways to support the team. We can take monthly pledges, one-off donations or if you’d rather get something tangible for your money, there’s now a range of T-shirts and other Average Gamer branded merch.
We’re on Patreon!
We do prefer monthly pledges because they can help with longer-term planning but we’re grateful for any support, of course. If one-off donations work better for you, there’s a button at the bottom of this page. Thanks very much.
Over on Patreon you can pledge from just $2 per month. In the milestones section, you’ll see a breakdown of what it actually costs to bootstrap a site of this size, albeit in US dollars.
Think of it tossing a bit of money in the tip jar each month for a site you enjoy reading. Pledge over $15 each month (about £9) and you’ll get your name on our VIP backers page which I will definitely make and link here when someone pledges.
Our fetching logo allows you to proudly proclaim your status as a typical gamer. We’ve slapped it on all manner of objects, from badges to bears to bibs to b-shirts. I mean T-shirts. Each item is printed on-demand by Spreadshirt and posted directly to you. I can vouch for the quality of T-shirts myself – I have two at home.
[Also, until 2nd September you can get 15% off all T-shirts with this code: SHIRTS15]
Donate Directly Through PayPal!
If you’d rather skip Patreon or do a one-off donation then you can donate directly to our PayPal account. PayPal seems to eat about 8% in currency exchange fees if you’re not in the UK, just so you know.
Use this button to make a monthly donation through PayPal. However much you like, it’s all appreciated. I know it says “Subscribe” but this doesn’t sign you up to a mailing list or anything like that. Also, I apologise for the awful alignment of these buttons. THANKS PAYPAL. I’m working on it.
If you’d rather make a one-off contribution, use this button:
Thanks for taking a look at this page. Happy gaming!
