Push Your Game to the Forefront with New IGA Boosts

Introducing a new feature to help your games get to the front of the pack: IGA Boosts! Boosts are a great way to help promote a game even harder during peak periods, such as a Kickstarter launch, new expansion release, or during a PR blitz following an award win.

For a nominal fee, members can double the Loot Points earned by IGA Minions when they demo your game for a 30-day period beginning with a date you choose. Minions will receive emailed notifications in the IGA weekly newsletter of current and upcoming Boosts, and may also view current and upcoming Boosts on our website.

For more details about the process or to schedule a Boost, click the Schedule a Boost button at the top of any game profile in your Studio Game Catalog(note: You may only Boost a standalone game, not an expansion — to promote an expansion, Boost the base game instead.) 

Minions, you don’t have to do anything extra to claim your Boosted Loot Points – just file a demo report for the Boosted game during the Boost period.

IGA Policy Update: Store Refresh Periods

Greetings, members and Minions. We wanted to let you know about a change we’ve made to the way our IGA Reward Store gets new items, based on feedback we’ve had from Minions.

As member publishers sometimes give us very limited quantities of games, it can be something of a race for Minions to hit the store with a pile of Loot Points when a new game is made available. This limits options for Minions who aren’t online every day, and also leads to a sense of buyer’s remorse when a Minion clears out their Loot Points on a game, and the next day a game they wanted more appears on the store and sells out immediately.

To help alleviate this, we’re moving to a store refresh schedule, similar to what BoardGameGeek does on its promo store. We’ll be adding the new items to the store all at once, on the 5th of every month, so Minions can plan to browse the store then to see all the new stuff that’s come in for the previous month and make their selections.

Members will still be able to see the items in their My Inventory Items dashboard, so inventory control and transparency is not compromised in any way as a result of this change.

Please direct any questions to Victoria Hardman, who runs our store, at Thank you.
