Question: Do Game Reviews Belong on this Blog?

Back in January of this year, I posted a series of board/card game reviews that I called my Nachos Grande's Friday Game Review.  As part of the series, I posted a full review of a different game for each of the Fridays in the month of January.  If you missed those posts, I reviewed the following four games:

Admittedly, those review posts took a LONG time to write (lots of photographs needed for most of the posts).  However, I'm legitimately interested in a wide variety of board games and card games (and even some video games) and so I enjoyed the posts.  I don't think I'll ever have the time to have a new game posted every Friday like I did in January, but I could certainly sprinkle in some game review posts here and there throughout the year.

My question is:  Do those reviews belong on Nachos Grande?  Should I continue to sprinkle in game reviews here OR should I start a game specific blog which can house all my game-related posts? 

Now, I already run two blogs (this one and a LEGO related blog here).  Thus, while I know I can handle more than one blog, I know that for every new blog I start I'll have to take away that time from my existing blogs (after all, time is a finite resource for any given day)! 

Basically, I'm looking for some feedback in terms of whether you A) like reading the game reviews and B) if you'd like a game-specific blog or if you'd prefer I keep everything non-LEGO related here at Nachos Grande.

Sound off below, let your opinions be heard!

Oh, and by the way, I have a bunch of other games that I need to write some reviews for.  I'm not sure when I'll have the time to do so, but I've got plenty of great games (and a couple of not-so-great games) to talk about in due time.

I'd be in favor of reading an occasional game review on this blog, as it is something I'm interested in. I don't have anyone to play games with, but I do like seeing what's out there... just in case I do someday. I wasn't a reader at the time, but I will definitely go back read your previous reviews.

I have recently started covering a lot more of my interests, and while it has led to some reduced views, it certainly makes blogging more fun (at least for me). So, I would say if it's something you enjoy doing, then why not share it with everyone else.

Personally, I like board games too and enjoy reading other people's review of them. Post whatever you like!

I don't see why you should have to create a new blog for this project. I would enjoy reading your game reviews. I was pretty active at BGG before I moved, plus I like reading about anything bloggers think is fun. Fun keeps us sane!

Go for it! It's your blog, and if you enjoy doing it, then you should do it.

I go to gaming conventions when I can. I wouldn't want you to go to any extra trouble, but if you're reviewing a game, sure, put it here.

I'm a closet board game fan. I rarely play board games in my personal life... but I do run my school's board game club. Plus I often kill time watching board game reviews on YouTube, so I'd definitely read your board game posts... if you choose to continue them.
