Help me please! I'm playing in a PBF, (proof: http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/905914/pbf-44-excalibermerli...)
and everyone told me it would be much much easier to distinguish who is who if I had an avatar. If anyone is kind and generous enough to give me the GG to get an avatar, it would mean so much to me! Thank you!

I'm with John on this one! I am in a Rookie PbF for Call of Cthulhu and I think it would make it easier to distinguish my posts if I had an avatar. Thanks for your generosity; I truly appreciate this community!!

Any spare GG would be appreciated and well used. meeple

Been here a while and didn't even know this existed. Spent all my geekgold in geekbadges (I really think they are cool)

Sooo... If anyone has some spare change, HUEHUEHUEHUE GIBE MONI PLOS!!! (no, I wont report you if you can't )

5 years in and I still have no avatar. I have not had the extra money to support the site that I love which would be the best way to get the geek gold needed for an avatar.
I hate pretty much begging for geek gold but alas my profile is so naked and has been for a long time.

EDIT:
Thanks so much for the gold to get an Avatar!!

Help! No Geek Left Behind! I lack self-control and it's ruining my BGG experience.

I regularly have posted images of game sessions and slowly collect GeekGold that way. I also do GeekMod but that's pretty slow going. I've been on this site for a decent amount of time but largely lurk and don't post much text - I'm more of an image submission kind of guy. Maybe someday I'll do reviews.

My issue is that invariably whenever I collect a significant amount <30gg, I see some absolutely tasty microbadge and my base instincts take over and I purchase it, starting my avatar quest from square one.

So please, please, help a fellow Geek out, and throw some GeekGold my way for my avatar quest! If you want to make sure I spend it on an avatar, it might be good to throw me >30gg just in case some microbadge catches me in its Medusa-like stare and I need to revisit this thread in dire straits.

EDIT:

Thank you all for helping me attain my avatar! Specifically, I would like to thank my greatest sponsors:

I have only recently got into board gaming to try and get the children away from the TV and video games a bit and also to bring the family even closer with board games in general.

I can say with great enthusiasm that this journey has only just begun but is a major success. I must thank all of you for being a part of this community as this has helped me tremendously. Our game library is quickly growing and we are loving it.

I'm learning more and more and in fact I didn't even know about avatars and how to get them but I just noticed some kind people gave me some geekgold and I was trying to find out what it was and I stumbled onto this thread.

Being a part of this community is like playing a game itself! As time goes by my children and I will try and contribute some of our experiences and hopefully help others as they have helped us.

The only drawback is I'm spending a lot of cash buying all these games but its well worth it. Next on our list of games to consider buying are Pandemic, Flash Point Fire Rescue, Castle Ravenloft, Wrath of Ashardalon.

Thanks everyone,

Jason

Finally I was able to decide which Avatar to start with - initial one is a 1912 model North Lucas. Why this one ?; well it just look an odd kind of automobile (and ties relatively well with one of my favorite fast-played economic games: MW's Automobile).

Humble thanks goes to persons who made this happen:

I've been a member since the summer of 2012 when I got into board gaming (Agricola was my entry game). Gaming has now largely replaced TV for me and my wife. (win!)

Now I own over a dozen games (ok, don't laugh, I'm new) (and I teach, so I'm not rich), and all the warnings you give to new users about how the hobby will consume all their time and money is coming true for me, so I've been participating more here.

This is indeed a friendly community that welcomes newcomers.

Oh, and I'd like an avatar.

I'm offering 0.1-10 GG bounties for anyone who finds errors in the rulebook of Influence, the game I just launched in print-and-play version (which is scheduled for a Kickstarter release soon).

Also, 100 GG to the first person who can find a way to break the game -- by which I mean to ALWAYS win using some specific tactic.

More info here: Bounty Hunting for Errors (GG awards!)

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to get an avatar because I've recently been playing on the Resistance Play by Forum forum, and the people there have been very welcoming and enjoyable to play with. They've expressed mild frustration with dealing with a non-avatar player, I guess due to ease of recognition when reading on a phone, and I wanted to repay their kindness by trying to fix the no-avatar problem.

Thanks for your help, if able.

Hi all,

I just started participating in some Play By Forum games (Werewolf and Resistance), and have been advised that avatars make things approximately an infinite number of times easier for the other players to keep all our shouting at each other straight.

This is compounded by the fact that I'm in a game right now with Erik just above, another avatar-less fool.

If you can help, I thank you. Otherwise, I simply tilt my head in that kind of guilt inducing acceptance like when you don't put any money in the pan at church.

-Nick

I've been gaming for a few years now but now that I'm married I've been trying to find good games to get my wife involved in (Dominion and 7 Wonders have been hits so far...fingers crossed). This website and community has been an invaluable resource in helping me find games that I haven't heard about. I know I'll be here for a long time and I've been exploring different ways to contribute myself to all the geekness

Anyway, I just need 20 more GeekGold to get that Avatar and feel official and any help would be greatly appreciated!

I too am cultivating a gamer wife. Don't go into it with fingers crossed; you are cultivating the most excellent of women. I spent almost a year researching games. Carcassonne and Biblios were sure-fire hits. But after a year of reading 2-player husband recommendations, we recently launched Goa. Mission accomplished! Whoohoo! Heavy Euros with the wife!

Welcome and BGG will help you on your journey!
