And now, the only reason you've bothered to keep reading the header this far down... the monthly GeekGold challenge!
It's time dig deep into the darkest corners of BGG for a SGOYT SCAVENGER HUNT!
This month's challenge is completely different from any you've seen before. You don't need to post detailed reports of your plays, you don't need to create mini reviews, you don't need to dig out a game you haven't played in years (or ever), you don't need to invent new solo rules for a game that doesn't have any... heck, you don't even need to actually play any game at all! Anyone reading and commenting on this list can take part.
Here's how it will work. Periodically* throughout the month I'll post a requested item, and your challenge will be to find it. Each unique picture of the requested item wins some GeekGold.
*Maybe every few days, maybe every few pages, maybe every time someone posts High Frontier... who knows? It'll be completely arbitrary, so keep an eye on your subscriptions!
For example, if the item you had to find was a picture of a cat sticking out its tongue, you might post this picture:
Simple, right? You're going to clean out every last GG penny I've got! Well, not so fast! To keep it from being too easy there are a few rules you'll have to follow:
1) ALL pictures must come from within the BGG/RPGG/VGG database.
Game pages, designer pages, and even personal galleries are fair game unless noted otherwise. Pictures posted from external sources will not count.
2) All pictures must have been uploaded prior to my entry requesting the item.
In other words, you can't see what the item is and then cheat by taking a new picture of it.
3) All pictures and items must be unique.
No credit is given for repeating what someone else has already posted, even if it's a different photo. In other words, once someone has posted a picture of a specific piece from a game, that game piece cannot be posted by anyone else even if the pictures are completely different. See rule #6.
4) One successful picture per user per requested item, please.
Let's allow as many people as possible to participate, so if you happen upon a jackpot of images for something, just pick one and let others find the rest. You'll have plenty of other chances to take my GG throughout the month. If you post a picture that gets rejected for any reason, you can keep trying until you get one that works.
5) Some items may include additional rules, so double-check them before posting.
6) Whether or not a posted item qualifies is entirely up to my discretion.
If I say something doesn't count don't get upset and don't argue it. Just go out and find a better picture.
7) Pictures should be posted as a reply to the specific Scavenger Hunt entry.
It's the only way I'll be able to keep track of who and what has posted where.
(Edits/Additions/Clarifications to the Scavenger Hunt rules are in red.)
Some items will be easy, some will take some serious digging, and some might even take a bit of luck. Some may even be worth bonus points if you happen to find a specific picture. Good luck!
