This page is dedicated to the people who work for TGG (The Gaming Ground).

Contact us!

So, who are “The Gaming Ground”? (thegg.net). Well, we are a Gamer gang from Sweden of mixed ages and genders (we do have writers from all over the world though). And we write about everything from video games, anime, IT, technology, cosplay to movies.

In other words, we write about the topics that we love the most. And we have been doing that since 2009 (2009-01-18 to be exact). So if you like any of those topics, then you´re going to love us (TGG) for sure!

And we have grown quite a lot since then. Nowadays, we have over 1,000-2,000 unique visitors per day, and a much more advanced (and good-looking) homepage.

And at the very start of 2012 (In January) we went from being a blog, to become “The Gaming Ground” (with our own domain and everything). Since then we have just grown more and more. And it´s all thanks to the feedback from you guys (our readers and watchers).

We will of course keep on evolving and pay attention to our readers (and watchers) feedback, because our goal has always been to improve ourselves over time.

We also have a dream to become one of the very best Gaming and entertainment blogs in the world. And we have come a really long way since 2009. However, there is still a lot of hard work left to be done (improving the homepage, get more sponsors and so on), and we need more talented crew members as well.

Nevertheless, so far, we have been really lucky with finding awesome people (most of the time they find us, before we find them). Anyhow, nothing is impossible if you put your mind into it. So, let’s turn that dream into a reality together people!

With friendly regards Robin Ek, founder and CEO of  The Gaming Ground. If you would like to get in touch with us at TGG. Then just mail us at info (at) [email protected]
