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!


Yes, I have been scrutinizing many of the "Games I play with my Wife" threads. I know I have hope because just the other day SHE asked ME to play Dominion. I'll have her playing Brass in no time!

I have only recently discovered this excellent site after searching for games to expand my collection.

I have been slowly introducing new players to board games and think it would be beneficial to have an avatar to demonstrate to those that I link to my posts that I am serious

Thanks for reading and I appreciate any assistance you can give.

I've been a stalker here on BGG for a coupe months. I joined because a friend told me how awesome the community is here. I'd love an avatar so I can have an identity! It'll probably be something Cthulhu related.

My husband got me into boardgaming when we were dating a couple of year back. This hobby of ours has grown exponentially after we got married last year. Now we have 100+ games and hold game nights bi-weekly. We hope to spread the love of board games to a greater community, including our friends and family.

I am still fairly new to BGG and haven't had an avatar. Having an avatar will definitely be a great step moving forward. Any help is highly appreciated!! Thanks! :)

I've been on the site for a little over 2 years now... I mostly use the site to check if a game I'm looking at is worth getting or to help clarify things when rules seem a bit squiffy. I decided that it was about time that I got around to uploading an avatar and it's only now that I discovered that there's such a thing as geek gold...

If you look at my list of games you'll see that I not only own a decent number but that I've even rated a reasonable number of them. It's not like I'm a BGG virgin but I've still missed this entirely... A bit more poking around and I discover microbadges.

Erm yeah... Any help you could give me so that I could get an avatar and maybe even a microbadge or 2 would be greatly appreciated.

If it helps you decide: I play games with my partner and son, we have recently corrupted at least one non-gamer friend who is now an avid gamer. I'm a knitter and crocheter. I'm an avid supporter of disability rights and equality. Having a genetic condition which is slowly limiting your mobility helps you see both sides of the equation and people really need to be doing more to make things accessible for disabled people.

Hi. My friend has recently gotten me to sign up for the site to do some Play-by-forum and I do not want to give other people a headache with me not having an Avatar (hard to identify posts if viewed on a mobile phone).

I am asking for some GeekGold because I heard you guys are awesome at that.

Thank you.

Well, I also don't want to be left behind, I guess.

I've been lurking the site since more or less a year now and decided to sign up two weeks ago to finally use this site as intended.
Then I added all my games to my collection and even started to add all plays, since I signed up.
Even used the marketplace to get me a new game.
Also I encountered the GeekQuestions, which are damn awesome and help me to distract myself from learning during uni.
There's just one minor issue which saddens me,and that's that everyone there which questions I answered or everyone who answered my questions has an avatar and some fine MicroBadges.

I really don't care that much for the MicroBadges, even if some of them are gorgeous, but I guess that I can deal with them later.
My main focus would be an avatar though.

Also I'm feeling a bit bad/cheap for asking this of you, to be honest.

I've only been playing board games as a group for about a year and a half now, and have used BGG to point me in the right directions on which games to buy. As a group, me and my friends have a pretty good collection, but I feel that the only way to continue from here is to succumb to geekness and dedicate a part of my life to BGG. What is my life without an avatar. Thank you for all the help!

This is a really great idea. I'd be thrilled if someone would be so kind as to send a bit of Geek Gold my way. An avatar would help me feel like less of a newbie I suppose.

Thank you so much to all of the generous users here who have enabled me to have an avatar! For the time being, I just used a picture I took of a Lords of Waterdeep session. I'm not sure if I'll keep it, but I don't feel quite so inadequate now at least!

Sometimes I write really long posts, and people seem to read them and respond. Sometimes I throw in a little tidbit (or some snark) and it gets completely overlooked--even by me as I read through the thread later--because entries with no avatars are so damn small. It's a conspiracy, I tell you!

Update: Gold! Thanks all, I'm one step closer to being one of them (instead of one of us).
