About Beauty and the Nerd

Welcome!
Hello! My name is Charleton Mills. My wife Cortney and I are the Beauty and the Nerd that our name implies. At this time we are creating board games and attempting (emphasis on the attempting) to give quality content to those who support us.

Patreon is essentially our blog. I upload my content here, so that way people don't have to bounce back and forth between multiple websites to get all of the content. Anyway, each post emphasizes something different. In some, I explain our journey into designing the board games we are currently working on. In others, I review board games. In others yet, I attempt to find a topic pertaining to our content and write about it. Which, by the way, if there is a topic you want to see written, let me know on Discord.

Cortney and I have all kinds of ideas for new material, and I want you to help me make it all.

FAQ:

What is Patreon?
Patreon is a service where you can pledge to send a regular payment to creators, so they can support themselves and keep making new stuff.

Patreon is better for creators than advertising or sponsorship. The content is 100% uncompromised, payment is more predictable, and creators don't need to stoop to clickbait content or other shady practices.

Patreon means that creators serve their viewers, not advertisers or corporate sponsors. And where the viewers choose what deserves to be made and who deserves a voice.

How often will I pay?
You pay per month. I always release a blog per week, and once I am able to, I will begin streaming (Patreon exclusive), allowing the viewers to play the game with me.

Why do you need the money?
I currently work a full-time job, which hardly pays the bills. My wife babysits full-time as well, but we are still low on funds. We are also starting a church, which takes up a lot of our time as well. I don't want any pity, but I do want to be able to work on projects that others believe in. That is what our funds go toward.

Funds give here go primarily to development of the games and projects (e.g. board design, game prototypes to give to others to play test, etc.), research and development of the blogs, equipment to allow us to operate (e.g. better capture equipment, etc.), and staffing (believe me, I need the help).

What's in it for me?
All Patrons pledging $1 or more get access to most of the material posted to Patreon. This is simply you saying, "I believe in your project," and for that, I offer you my most sincere thanks. 

Pledge $3 per month and you will get access to Discord, which allows you to talk to me at any time, ask questions, and join the community.

Those who pledge $10 per month will get access to the Special ranking on Discord, and access to the exclusive chat. Additionally, you will be granted access to watch and play board games with us on Twitch when that is released.

Those who pledge $100 per month will get access to the Ultimate ranking on Discord. In addition to all previous rewards, you will also be given a free copy of the best version of any game we release, with free shipping. You basically get free games this way. I mean, free is relative, but still. The free game only comes to current Patrons who have donated on this level for two consecutive months or more. We may even send you a copy of the game beforehand to play test *wink* *wink* *nudge* *nudge*.

Will I get previous Patron-only content when I subscribe?
Yes, but only after your first payment has been processed, which happens at the beginning of the month.

Anything else I need to know about you?
I will always be upfront and honest with my Patrons. If there is a time that things go wrong and I feel like it is unfair to you (usually by people telling me it is), I will happily refund you and anyone else who is involved.

Also, if there is any sponsored content, or something that may appear to unfairly bias me, know this: 1. Any sponsor of any kind must agree that any conclusions I come to are strictly my own, even if I give a game donated to me a bad review, they must accept it, and 2. I will disclose any of that kind of information at or near the beginning of any blog, video, post, etc. that I create.

Thank you!
