There are many ways to gauge the measure of a BoardGameGeek. Some say it's by the size of one's collection. Others say size doesn't matter. Well, here are 10 other milestones in the journey of a BoardGameGeek. Some are well recognized, others are not.

Post your numbers (and comments) under each item. At the very bottom of the list post your total score. First person to post a 10/10 gets...nothing. This isn't a contest. They're no better than the rest of you. Maybe just a bigger geek.

I am laughably including instructions on where to find these stats even though a true BoardGameGeek would never need them

This is the threshold for receiving the mb award. Shows you either have good content, or you've been in the Feel the Love thread (or both).

10,000 Thumbs Given

This, to me, is just as much the mark of a true geek. Letting others know you appreciate their content is as good as getting thumbs.

Many lurk before adding their voice to the mix, but a true BoardGameGeek has posted at least 1000 things or aims to.

100 Microbadges

At the rate these free contest microbadges are coming out, this is not such a hard milestone to reach. But a real geek will tell you about his geekiness in every way they can, and microbadges are a great way to do so.

100 Geekbuddies

Geekbuddies are super geeky. A great way to track others whose tastes match yours or who deserve to be a buddy for any other reason.

My Geek > GamesStuff tab. For this one add the total of the geekbuddies you have and the number of users who have geekbuddied you.

1000 Geekmails Sent/Received

There is a lot of behind-the-scenes geekiness going on. A real board game geek doesn't restrict the spread of their geekdom to public forums.


Click the geekmail icon. Each page holds 100 messages.
