I've known this was coming for a while, and my wife and I even strongly considered jumping into the bidding pool but eventually decided now wasn't the time. As officially announced today, Dane Trimble is stepping down as owner/operator of Everything Board Games. He's been at the helm of EBG for 10+ years, so it's sad to see him go. In fact, he's the one who reached out to me to start reviewing with EBG, and since then my involvement in the board game industry has escalated beyond belief.
Dane helped me launch my freelance rule book editing services and helped keep me--and my family--afloat when I was out of work for 20 months through writing spotlights and other content for EBG, and also bringing in some big editing jobs. I'm definitely sad to see him step down.
But, he's sold EBG to Lake Leafty of Getting Geeky with Gamer Leaf and The Giveaway Geek. I know Lake works incredibly hard with his podcast and with TGG, so I'm looking forward to seeing what he brings to the table. Everything Board Games will be operating as normal as this change takes place, but Lake will certainly find ways to spice things up and continually find ways to improve.
Dane has been posting this announcement on Facebook, so I guess it's fair game to spill the beans haha As EBG has been a huge part of my life for the last few years, I felt it was appropriate to make the announcement here. The future is always changing, and change can bring some very good things! I'm looking forward to what the future holds for EBG.
