Who and Why


I am relatively new user here on BGG. So I want you to know me better and my modest contributions for our community. I was draged in at the end of 2011. It wasn't long when I became registered member. It was more or less the same time when I've become modern board gamer and bgg user.


It was all because of my friend who introduced me to both games and this page. HE tricked me because he knew how much I like China and everything connected with it. When he invited me to show me modern board game he chose Ghost stories to be my first game. And that was it. Now I am Board Game Geek and I don't want to be cured.


When I' ve become geek I suddenly realized I don't only need games but also need GEEK GOLD. So I've started looking for a way to get it. Today I create that mini contest to for the first time give some geek gold to you Guys. Now I am 100% sure that BGG community is the best community out there and this little hobby of ours gathers the most kind and sociable people from all over the world.


The occasion to creat that geeklist is that in this month I've to received Golden Image Uploader, which is my main contribution for BGG. Than I've received my Level 01 BGG poster which isn't a big deal because I mostly ask for help than give answers. And finally on April 4th is my birthday.


How does it work ?


1. The list is gallery of some of my images. I love capture how games look and a beauty of components lied on the table.

2. You may thumb up everything you want.

3. On April 4th I will choose 1 person form three most thumbed up images.

4. Each one of these 3 persons will be given 8 geek gold, just for new shiny microbadge.

5. If you really enjoy any image feel free to thumb up original file. I appreciate any comments and advices for both geelist and items. Thanks a lot.


My English is not so good, nor my camera so forgive me. Hope You will enjoy that contest and its content.

Thanks for creating that wonderful community.


UPDATE

The contest is over. We have the winners. Three most thumbed up items gathered equal 30 thumbs up. IT were items: Ghost Stories, Earth Reborn and Mansions of Madness. From each one of them I've randomly picked up one person. The winners are:

My first boardgame. My first co-op game. My first horror game. Perhaps my first uploaded image.

In my early gaming I was buying mainly co-ops. After my love for PAndemic there were Defenders of the Realm. YES! The theme makes a difference. I can just sit and watch this game on a table - it's so big.

In every relationship there is a next stage. For me the next stage were euro games. And for the record these are also great looking.

Have you ever heard about cooperative game that as a matter of fact is euro game ??? In my opinion this one is. It feels like euro when you are playing it.
