About

The Sandbox Post is a spin-off project from volunteers, committee members, and board members of Sandbox Gaming, Incorporated. The purpose of the project is to allow volunteers to write news stories, blogs, and reviews related to gaming and gaming-culture.

Many of the volunteers and contributors are first-time writers and no members of the team are paid for their work–like all elements of Sandbox Gaming, it is all volunteer! A

Sandbox is a place of unlimited possibilities, and where our writing takes us, nobody knows…

Disclaimer: Opinions/blogs are the opinions of the individual writers and are not the opinion of The Sandbox Post or Sandbox Gaming, Inc.
