BoardGameGeek » BGG News » Boardgame Collector Microbadges (check the TOP Owned total on your profile, that's the total)

Author: Jester
As some of you know, we've had the following Boardgame Collector microbadges in our system for awhile, but there's not been a process to award them (and there has been great debate about the best way to do so):

mb - 100 boardgames in collection (Copper)
mb - 250 boardgames in collection (Silver)
mb - 500 boardgames in collection (Gold)

To receive these microbadges, you must:

1. Enter your collection on BGG.
2. Post in this thread what highest level of award you are entitled to (everyone who receives the gold microbadge also receives the copper and silver).

Note that only currently owned games count for this award, but it will be considered a high-water mark and you will not lose the microbadges if you later sell off part of your collection and mark the games as previously owned. We also will not consider any collection you may have owned in the past, so please don't ask; this will be awarded from this point going forward.

These microbadges are not automatically awarded. We do not want people to claim they have boardgames in their collection that they do not, because that pollutes the public stats in the database. We believe that people are generally honest about this and will not artificially inflate their collection and then ask for recognition of that in a public forum. However, if we see a pattern of abuse in this regard, be aware that we may decide to purge this award from the system and everyone who owns it.

That said, we wanted to open up this opportunity to the community and trust you will reward our faith in you. We hope you enjoy these microbadges!

Note: Expansions also count, but these are included in the boardgame total count in your profile.

Edit: Note that, to kick start this process, we've bulk-awarded the badges for everyone eligible to date. If your collection grows in the future above the next threshold, you'll need to come back to this thread to let us know.

Do expansions count? If so, I own 117 games. If not, I own 99 games. Boo.

So I guess I qualify for a copper microbadge?

I qualify for gold, but I got bored with entering games somewhere near the 400+ mark. You can give me the gold badge and I'll update my collection to show over 500. That's the best I can do, because there's no way I'm entering them all. Too many other things to do.

No, you do not.

You own 471 games and expansions total.

Jesse, I think you need to modify your OP, to point out that the "Boardgame" total on your profile counts expansions.

And Gamephotos is right; there's a bunch of people who've over-stated their collections because of this. A quick random audit of a couple dozen or so people found over a third are over-claiming, including people who should know better...

I've clarified my clarification. Once we get through the initial glut of incoming requests we'll do some checks, but the cases where this occurred is not actually nearly as high as that. If there are cases where a mistake was made, we'll talk to those folks directly and explain the situation. In other words, nobody here should have to stress out about it.

Hello again, and thanks for the microbadges! I went to add games right after my first post, but because I'm stupid and didn't filter them to "owned," I showed a number of 549 and figured, "no need to enter more." Anyway, thanks to stargate, I saw the error of my accounting ways, and I've added the two games required to qualify for the gold. For those who care deeply about such things, I added Tobago and Castle Ravenloft, the only two I can remember buying based specifically on con plays last year.

For those who don't care even slightly about such blather, well, I enjoyed attempting to ruin your day with unwanted exposition.

Jesse, you're doing an absolutely magnificent job thankyou.

I did notice that I got a:
* Copper Boardgame Collector
* Silver RPG Collector
I was expecting the latter to be a Silver Boardgame Collector.

Not complaining at all, but just checking!


Thanks, I fixed it. If only the badges didn't look exactly alike... Hmm...

Feel free to design new boardgame ones - we've been giving these out on the RPG side since last year

I have over 500 games listed in my collection at BGG, although I actually own at least 3 times that many.

I've been adding my games to my list gradually as I feel like it, so it might take me a few more years to get them all added (plus I keep getting more...)

So, by your rules, I believe I am qualified for the gold badge, since I have over 500 games listed, although I have many more to list, yet.

I have probably a good 750 (not including expansions) in my collection. It's at 890 or so with expansions and standard deck card games.

Hopefully, like you hope, I hope this doesn't get abused. I guess there are some who want to have the 'prestige' of having so many. I find it nice to be able to document what I have for playing and trading purposes.

Uh...
Two golds and a silver. (Yeah, yeah... I know: a gold automatically gets a silver and copper (bronze?)).

Man, I really have a lot of games.

But really, the way expansions are tabulated (which should not be changed: it's a good system for its primary purpose of cataloguing a collection), can give an inflated total result. Like "Mykerinos - The Nile," I have entered, although I ALSO have it entered under the Ystari expansion box (not to inflate my numbers, just so I can keep track of to what expansions I have access). Even Living Card Game expansions are counted as separate games, which boosts the count considerably for some collections.

Just sayin'.

I mean, really, it's a board game website. Surely you expect SOME posts niggling over the rules.

Thanks!

Please "gold" me, I have 560 currently listed. Somehow, my husband is embarrassed about our accomplishment. Good thing our collection is listed under my account. Not that he can hide it from our friends who have actually seen our house...

Already have my badges, but I'm glad to see this finally being done. The main purpose is to get stuff into the system. Here on the board game side that means versions and getting the proper pictures attached.

Good luck all.

It appears so. As such, I am at 458 (plus a few unlisted doubles and another few obscure games not in the db yet). That's close to gold but not just yet.

Okay, now I apparently rate a 'Silver' ... I'm not complaining, just confused a bit. Seriously, thank you, BGG!

--

I actually often buy 2 or more copies of games I like (as a back-up, for possible future trades, spare parts, a mint copy to see what it was like before opening, etc.), and for whatever reason, I haven't listed those on my game entries my noting separate ratings for each copy (BGG allows this), so maybe I should go back and update this here.

So this policy was changed, and the badges are automatically awarded now, I guess? It seems lots of people are getting them unexpectedly...?

Sorry, was finishing the bulk awards, which is now done. The policy has not changed, per se. I took a look at the number of people eligible vs the number of people that had requested the badges so far and estimated the amount of admin time that would be required to award the anticipated traffic to this thread. The amount of time required was... stunning.

So in a moment of sanity, I decided to bulk-award to get everyone who was eligible today, then continue with the manual assignment system from this point forward.

Edit: For the record, this has nothing at all to do with the fact that Bob is going to be busy gaming all weekend. whistle

Thanks for the copper, silver and gold boardgame collector microbadges for my 719 games.

Are there any microbadges for having rated 480 games?

I must get around to entering the rest of my wargames collection sometime this year.

Can you add a category of Time Played alongside the number of Plays category? Because 30 plays of Dominion is similar to one play of a typical 18XX game.

Thanks, Michael

She always assumes she'll outlive me, but she doesn't know the secrets of life:

Boardgamers can't die 'til they've played all their games.

if you newly crossed the threshold, then yes, you'd need to request. A common misunderstanding though is that the number of "boardgames" listed on your profile includes all of your expansions already. The "expansions" number says how many of the "boardgames" number are expansions. You don't add them together.

Those numbers are old (cached). Click on show owners for each to get the true count. It's quite a bit higher.


Copper Boardgame Collector 13111
Silver Boardgame Collector 4076
Golden Boardgame Collector 1227


That's a lot of games.

Edit: For those who were wondering, we'd only handed out around 730 copper badges at the time of the bulk award, so we expected the project to go on for months and months... Thus the bulk-award.

I have 305 (silver). I list expansions verbally under the game condition, rather than checking the "own" box and cluttering my collection lists, so there are the 235 owned games, plus 70 listed expansions.

I don't think I want to own 500 games, so the gold level looks a little misguided, but then I am not a collector type. To me, a well pruned/considered game library is more impressive than an enormous collection.

LOL! I did a massive downsizing of my collection just a couple of weeks before the bulk badge award, so I only got a copper!

If you already answered this, I missed it: do RPGs count? Because I got a copper badge for my boardgames, but if you also count RPGs I would qualify for a silver.

Thanks!

Sorry, no. There's a separate collector badge/thread for RPGs.

One more reason to hold onto unplayed and unlikely to be played games.

Thank you for the badge.

I was going to use an exclamation point but I was told that I get only three of those in my lifetime and that I should spend them wisely.

I think most users have all the Game Collector Microbadges they are qualified for

please see the original post for this thread

Quote:
Note: Expansions also count, but these are included in the boardgame total count in your profile.


here is the profile from one user, the number owned is what we look at
for HiveGod it is 532 games

there is no math involved, just look at your total games owned

Storage?

Well...I have an entire spare room of my home devoted to storing my games.

Boxed games on shelves. Miniatures games in plastic containers stacked several feet high for Mage Knight, D&D, Star Wars, AT-43, Blood Bowl, Warhammer Fantasy miniatures.

CCGs in binders on another shelf.

Unpainted metal minis and game terrain/tiles on another.

I REALLY need to purge some of these....

Finally got my latest purchases into my collection. Broke 500 by games alone! Woot!

510 games on the shelf!

These microbadges are not automatically awarded. We do not want people to claim they have boardgames in their collection that they do not, because that pollutes the public stats in the database. We believe that people are generally honest about this and will not artificially inflate their collection and then ask for recognition of that in a public forum. However, if we see a pattern of abuse in this regard, be aware that we may decide to purge this award from the system and everyone who owns it.


Seriously, why would anyone in her or his right mind want to fabricate a game collection in order to "earn" a microbadge? Seems like another example of the Geek thinking more highly of itself than it ought. But then, we are the Geek, are we not?

Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to spend hours and hours making an imaginary list of games so that I can get the gold. Time's a wastin'.

Thank you for the surprising and appreciative awards, both cooper and silver no less. It their addition makes my profile page look that much better. In fact, second only to a World Series Championship ring, I can't think of a better bestowal.

Hi,
since yesterday I qualify for gold. Thanks for the automated copper and silver badges. I wanted to buy a 'special' game to bring up the 500 but in the end it turned out to be some expansion inside of an ebay purchase.

Hey stargate,

Thanks a lot anyway ,

But I "only" managed to reach just over 500 by memory. I will have to pull out a precise list to finish the completion of my BGG collection... and I'll probably have to create a few pages too (some games that aren't there...) ^^

Thank you
