Well, it should read "What is your SECOND BEST contribution", as your best contribution is to become/remain a patron of BGG to ensure the future of this magnificent and many times amazing and funny and informative and [fill in yourself] ... place.

So what is your best contribution to the Geek last year, that is worth more than just mentioning.

Well, to be honest, my contributions are almost non-existent this year.
My job is taking too much time, and I'd rather play games than write about them.

I did translate the rules of Dominare end of last year and published these beginning of 2013: a 24 page rules book! The Dutch-speaking owners at least appreciated it - especially as I integrated answers to specific rules questions up to that point.

And I prepared well for Essen ... and brought truly great games back home.

Will I contribute more in 2014?
I am not making any promises here ... I'll comment on it in the same geeklist at the end of next year ...

My session/review of Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island after a three-player and a four-player game in which we died horribly (and predictably) both times was probably my best contribution this year on BGG.

I'll unabashedly say that my, or rather OUR (Significant Other and I), best contribution to BGG and the board gaming community is designing and developing the board game, Three Kingdoms Redux.

It didn't take us only one year to do it. We started work on it in 2010 and after extensive work, felt it was good enough to share it with the community in 2013: We Are Taking The Plunge!

Here are the finalised general cards for the three lords:

For me it's probably my pictorial review of Francis Drake.

This stunningly produced new worker placement game from Peter Hawes ended up being #1 on the GeekBuzz list at this year's BGG.CON, and is proving to be a popular game. I put a lot of time and effort into this review and its accompanying pictures, but as always, it's a labour of love!

Coming a close second would be my pictorial review of Village.

While we were super active in the BGG Auctions (so, be default, helping others w/ cash ), imo, this is the most significant contribution to BGG as a whole.

My new video series is for teaching folks how to play some of the heavier games out there. So far, Dominant Species is the only completed one, but by this time next week, I'm hoping to have 4 more up (Through the Ages: A Story of Civilization, The Capitals, Antike Duellum (from the JVMF), and Bora Bora. After that, maybe Sid Meier's Civilization: The Board Game & Romolo o Remo?.

I'm enjoying making the vids and folks seem to be enjoying watching them and learning. Win-win! thumbsup

My contribution is not so much a contribution to BGG, it is a contribution to Charity.

I was the founder and organizer of a Charity event. Our goal was to raise $5000 to help feed those in need. In the end the event was a huge success and we raised $14,000. The event brought boardgamers together in a way that was fun, where we could give something back to our community. I was truly humbled by the uptake and support of this event.

I am now looking forward to this being an annual event.

I've only done one in 2013, but I'm going to submit my continuing series of Risk Legacy session reports. We've had one person request that we play again so I can write another report. We also had Rob Daviau comment and thank us. It's been a lot of fun and I hope to have the Game #11 report posted this week!

All reports contain links to the other reports, so if you want to read all of them you won't have to do a lot of searching.

Hi!

I usually do not contribute to BGG in a way I am proud of. Usually, I lack the language skills needed to offer meaningful information

I'm quite happy with two things I had done this year... Not proud, there is a lot of better content for the site, but I'm happy. First of all, statistics for asymmetrical games. I also did a review for Metallum I am happy about.

Last Thanksgiving I had an idea-what if I could track the most popular "purchased" (technically "added to collection") games and report them monthly?

After a lot of trial and error, I was able to do so. It's my way of using some of my geek skills and giving back to the BGG community. I also wanted to help out FPGS's as they try to figure out what to stock and what to put on sale. The sister list: The top 50 "up and comers" (announcement thread) is also quite popular as well.

Thanks to all of those who have read it, suggested changes and helped make it better!

Just started making videoreviews 2 weeks ago. I guess my most usefull was a walkthrough for Asgard since there wasn't one yet and some people were wondering how it played. It wasn't easy making a runthrough of such a heavy game and playing for 4 players as my first runthrough, but I'm ok with the result

Well, now this is something to think about it.

For reviews:

I guess my most significant addition to BGG was my review of Egizia, followed closed by my review of Glen More, though both of them are in portuguese, so in number of thumbs and attention, both aren't even close as my most attractive additions.

By number of thumbs, my best contribution is: Robinson Crusoe: Adventure on the Cursed Island -- a review that is also (and mainly) a session report and, in the end, is really neither, but you might just like to read it.

Followed by my De Vulgari Eloquentia - short review.


For session reports:

This is a dispute between Hunting Dracula (in english), for Fury of Dracula (second edition), and, in portuguese, the biggest endevour of mine in session reports: Descent - Dragões Ressurgem, which is a long session report (with many liberties) for the whole campaign.

And that was it!

Regards,

To help new wargamers, I created this Geeklist where I sorted all of my wargames by complexity: defined by how easy it was for me to figure out how to play the game correctly.

The idea is that you pick a level that you are comfortable with, find a game with an interesting theme, and then you can research it.

I don't contribute much to the site overall, per se, outside of doing editing/proofing for various games and publications. But since July of this year I have been posting a "challenge" every week for players of Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Game and its expansions. The game itself has been enough fun for me since it's release that I enjoy doing it in spite of play testing these often taking up a good chunk of my game time each week.

It has been quite rewarding in many ways, and I know people enjoy that they don't have to think up new setups or even use randomizers for the game, and instead they choose to play these challenges every week (We are up to 24 now!) and of course they are all replayable. As they say, it isn't much but it's enough for me!

I decided to stop lurking on BGG in 2013.

I rediscovered wargames, and found the wargaming forums.

I wanted to find a way to contribute, so I came up with an idea to mine the data in BGG, mostly wargames.

That worked out pretty well, but I am most proud of a session report and VASSAL module I made for an obscure wargame, Battle of Adobe Walls.

I'm a sleeve-a-holic, much to the annoyance of my girlfriend, as I sleeve her games when she's not looking.

Khedron's list of sleeve sizes for games was something I used a lot, but he hadn't had time to update it in a while.

In October, I decided to do something about it.

There's no way to transfer the ownership of a geeklist, which meant that I would have to start over with my own. Thankfully, Khedron was nice enough to give me permission to copy all the data from his list, so I wouldn't be starting completely from scratch. I also did some cleanup of the formatting, some corrections, and added everything I could from the forum thread.

When I finished copying everything and published my list in early November, it had about 375 games on it. Thanks to contributions by all the awesome people here, that number is now up to 795, and I'm still getting submissions every day.

I hope people find this list to be a useful resource. Most of the hard work was done by Khedron, so he deserves much of the credit for making it happen in the first place.

In response to the section about sexism, I answered this way:

I'm a 65-year old woman. I use BGG to research my future purchases, to get rules clarifications, to read News because I know Eric Martin, and to read comments about games from users whose opinions I respect. I don't use the site to look at photos - of anyone.

The only words I've noticed, mostly in requests for recommendations, that have bothered me are "the wife." If I were married, I'd never refer to my husband as "the husband." I always wonder why the writers don't call their spouses "my wife," or even "Mary, my wife."

* * * * *
It was my contribution that gained me the most thumbs, so I guess it was my best of the year.
