To celebrate a recent achievement and to spread some Valentine's love, I'm giving away hard-earned geekgold (that was dropped in my lap) to new users (users with NEW USER badgeusers who have joined the Geek during the past six months) who want a microbadge!

At least 75100 microbadges are up for grabs! (More if this geeklist gets tipped.)

Click "Add Item" at the bottom of this title box and make a geeklist item. Tell me which microbadge you want and why.

To show a microbadge in a post, get the microbadge ID from the URL script of the individual microbadge's page and write it in your post as [microbadge=xxxxx].

Thanks for the offer! I'm a new user (just, a few days to go) and am slowly starting to contribute as I grow comfortable with quite a complex and intimidating site lol.

I play mostly with my family so I think Microbadge: Gamer Family would be quite suitable.

I am open to suggestions for others to buy as well, there's sooooo many of them! lol.

Thanks

P.S. My first time on a geeklist, I wasn't sure what item to put this as, so I chose our first 'gateway' game In the month I've been here we've also got Explorers & Pirates for Catan, LoW (and skullport arrived today), Dead of Winter, Lewis & Clark, Pandemic...going to have stop buying for a few weeks at least now, I already spent too much lol....though I _need_ Stone Age now...oh, and Discworld Ankh-Morpork....will the madness ever end???

Microbadge: "Made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs."
I recently registered to this site because I finally got away from PC games and into boardgames. I have previously played a lot of tabletop and rpgs and am an avid Star Wars fan so Xwing and Imperial Assault are part of my transitioning. I'd really like Microbadge: "Made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs." as my first microbadge to show my love of Star Wars.

Wow, you're so generous. After lurking for a few months I finally signed up for the site and was even tipped my first geek gold today. Ticket to Ride was the first gateway game and my group loves playing it so I figure a Microbadge: Ticket to Ride: USA 1910 fan is appropriate. I was looking at microbadges earlier and saw Microbadge: Chemist which I think is a rather cool (I'm a chemist). I hope to purchase it once I get 7 more gold. At my current rate of 1GG per 2 days I should have it by March!

Thank you so much!

That's very nice of you! I've slowly been finding my way around the site and getting used to the format. There is SO much content available. Favourite parts are the board game rankings and the quick-view Marketplace (I quickly browse through hoping to see an Australian flag so the shipping isn't so $$$$$).


I got into boardgaming very recently after playing Catan with my flatmates. I started to look into other games, and only very very recently discovered the world of "Modern Boardgames". I soon purchased Terra Mystica thanks to the ratings on this site (even despite its depth I thought I'd just jump into the deep end!). I was blown away at the depth of the game - it just has so much to offer. There's something special about a boardgame with people face to face versus an online multiplayer as well. As far as a microbadge goes I love this one Microbadge: Terra Mystica fan. I think it really reflects how well everything so eloquently comes together in that game.


I then soon bought Eclipse after recommendations - my group loves it! I think I've spent something like $300 on boardgames in about 2 months haha - shame it's so expensive in Australia but I love it . As a very avid competitive & casual video gamer, I really couldn't believe that I had no idea about modern boardgaming - I'm really excited about my new found hobby!.


Edit: Eeeeeeek I've lost my newuser tag! I suppose I'm well and truly entered into the hobby

Hello,

This is a very generous offering. I am fairly new to board gaming and very new to BGG but totally obsessed. I thought it appropriate with the valentines theme to choose list the game that got my partner and I really into the hobby. We'd played a few 'modern' board games but this is the first one that totally engaged us and remains our favourite.

If I am honoured with I microbadge I would like the Microbadge: On a crusade to spread Eurogames as it looks great and reflects our interest in converting all our friends and acquaintances to the hobby that we might share it with them.

Edit: Appears I've also lost my New User tag. Seems I would have lost it on valentines day itself. Feels like a gesture of welcoming from BGG.

Takenoko was one of the first games I bought / requested when actively trying to get a new board game, so I think a Microbadge: Takenoko fan would be awesome!

(the previous game I bought was Ticket to Ride: Europe because I had played the US edition at a friends house and wanted more of that exact thing).

I'm listing Gubs, one of our family's favorite games and one that I think does not get the props it deserves.

I've been playing this game with my son since he was four. He is now six and can give me a good run for my money in games like Star Realms and Dominion.

I credit this to Gubs which teaches new players the basics of building combos and hand management. The luck factor, and randomness that some of the cards generate help to guarantee that the games aren't over until the last "B" is drawn. IMHO, this is one of the best games to play with a young gamer.

Been registered for a while, but am only now getting involved with the site. Joined my first league and just picked up a few microbadges.

Thank you!

I am new to playing board games (beyond those that I believe are common to most people's childhood) and I'm so glad that I came across this site and community of gamers. I have enjoyed browsing all the different areas on it, learning how to use the site and discovering the vast array of different style board games that are out there. The forums have been extremely helpful to me in picking out games that I think would also be of interest to/fun for my wife. I think she was a little surprised by this recent interest but has been/is very supportive of "No Tech" tabletop nights (leave off the t.v.,phones,computer, etc.). The two player games we've been playing and have both enjoyed are "Mice & Mystics" and "A Few Acres of Snow".
The offer of a micro badge is very nice of you and I'm not sure if that is still going on or not but either way I enjoyed reading this thread and this felt like a good place to make my first post. Thanks for taking the time to make it.

Hello everybody! I am also a new user in this website and a board game enthusiast! I just love playing board games with my friends (or without them ). I was between two microbadges as my first: The first one describes my thirst for new games, and it is Microbadge: I like to play NEW games and the second one is the game that i have played most (since now) and of course loved: Munchkin! So the badge that i decided to ask is this Microbadge: Munchkin fan. I would love to hear suggestions for new games, and opinions for games you loved!

Wow! This is really generous, thank you for the opportunity.

I've been into board games as a serious hobby since around 2002, when my 10th grade history teacher introduced my friends and I to Diplomacy and Empires in Arms (although I already had experience with Magic and other CCGs, as well as D&D). I've lurked here for awhile, but I finally decided to open an account right around Christmas. I chose my favorite game, Ghost Stories, for my first badge, but I'm also really big on A Few Acres of Snow right now - it helps that I'm from Central NY, and it's rewarding to play a game that captures my own region's history - and would love to get Microbadge: A Few Acres of Snow fan. Besides that, it's an excellent game, and I'm more and more convinced that deckbuilding is best as the core of a larger game.

Thanks for this offer, it is truly appreciated.

I was a boardgamer in the mid '80s after we were married. At that time I was all about wargaming; SquadLeader, Battletech, Axis and Allies, etc. As you would expect, my wife was less than enthusiastic about playing with me. I drifted away from the hobby and spent 25 years PC gaming.

I recently returned to the tabletop and discovered euro and worker placement games. My wife loves these games and she is some kind of savant. We are probably 50/50 wins when playing, and she has a win advantage when looking at the first few plays of a new game. Fortunately for me I develop deeper strategies after a few plays, so I can redeem my initial losses.

In honor of my wife's willingness to follow me back into the hobby, I'd like to get the Microbadge: My wife beats me. badge.

Thanks again for the offer

Hey Bob! Greetings from Brazil.

I got back into board gaming at the end of last year with the purchase of Settlers of Catan and Carcassonne. I was looking to do something different during the Christmas and New Years holidays, when all the family comes to my house to celebrate these dates.

It was an immediate success with my cousins and soon everyone was interested in knowing more about the games.

Of course I got addicted to board gaming after discovering those two titles (the modern board games are quite new here in Brazil, and thankfully is growing fast). Found this awesome website and started digging information and discovering a whole new world!

I got some micro badges for some of my games already and the next one on my wishlist was this Catan one: Microbadge: Settlers of Catan fan

Congratulations on your achievement and thanks for your generosity!

Cheers!

I love Lovecraft and the Mythos. I just got from my Secret Santa in 2014 a copy of this great game and I want to celebrate it with a Meeple Microbadge

I discovered the Mythos about 30 years ago, and I recently managed to get a great Spanish compilation of almost all the short stories from the Terrible Old Man in 2 volumes. Great to read the early works and how the writing evolved and became more thrilling as Lovecraft moved from the Dream Cycle into the Elder Gods and the Things that should not be.

Dear Bob, that's a very generous offer!

I am quite new to this hobby, since the serious addiction began just last November. Fortunately, I had the chance to play some of the classics earlier, such as Carcassonne with some expansions, Catan or Alhambra. But for Christmas I got Puerto Rico and Bora Bora. I really like both of these games, and since that I got really into gaming (as you can read about it on my Geeklist: Gaming experiences in 2015) and I bought Artus, Saint Malo and The Castles of Burgundy (and some other great games) and I really liked them all.

Because all of the above, I would be very pleased if my next microbadge would be Microbadge: Alea fan.

I hope I can expand my Alea collection in the future.

I love playing games when I'm with friends, (though they live farther), but I didn't have too many of my own. We play all kinds of stuff & I always love learning new games even if the theme isn't for me.

This year I was given Zombies!!! in our white elephant/friend Christmas gift exchange & it really got me into researching & finding other games I'd like to own & play. Basically it encouraged me to PLAY more in general & not just on the occasional friends' weekends. To get my dad to play with me, my grandma, my brother, my cousins.

So since Christmas I've built me a little collection & have a few games on my wishlist.

Plus. Zombies!!! Lol!!

I'd love to have this microbadge if you are still sharing: Microbadge: Zombie Lover

Thank you so much!!!

This is my first real post on BGG too, besides some GeekBay! I need to learn this place better as it's a fun wealth of information.
