Guide To BoardGameGeek

BoardGameGeek is a website dedicated to the subject of physical board games. The site provides an extensive database of board games as well as an active community of users who discuss, argue, buy, sell, trade and play board games. The database contains over 70,000 board games (as of June 2014) and each game has its own Game entry which gives information about a game, user ratings, forums for discussion and a great deal more.

The Forums are a good place to explore to involve yourself in the community. If you are completely new to the site, check out the Getting Started page and the Welcome to BoardGameGeek page. To start exploring the wiki have a look at the Wiki Index and if you want to learn more about what the wiki is and how to add content to it, go to About the BoardGameGeek Wiki.

Text Editors at BGG

BGG has two basic text editors. You can recognize them from sight using the red boxed regions in the images below for reference.

Forum Editor - Used for editing posts and other parts of the system. The Forum Editor provides support for creating markup in the editor which is then rendered in the actual post.

Wiki Editor - Used to editing wiki pages and other places. For example the game Description and More Information sections are actually wiki pages.

The markup formats for the Forum Editor and the Wiki Editor are similar, but different.
