I searched through old geeklists and did not see anything like this (there was a new microbadge of the week list) so here goes...

What makes a mircobadge great? Clarity? Color? Topic? That is a question for you to answer...

I'm not looking for the most popular as that is easy to calculate from sales. What I am looking for is what badge we think is the greatest even if not many people own it.

RULES:

1. Each geek may nominate only one badge of any designer. Please give us some reason why you chose that badge. You are encouraged to nominate one of your own if you would like.

2. Each geek may vote by thumb for as many nominations made by other users as they like.

3. Voting will remain open through June 20, 2008.

4. I will cast any tie breaking votes, if necessary.

AWARDS:

The DESIGNER of the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place microbadges will win 4, 2, and 1 GG respectively.

The NOMINATOR of the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place microbadges will win 1 GG each.

Awards are cumulative if DESIGNER = NOMINATOR.


Any tips will prorated into the awards.


HOW TO:

To add a picture of the microbadge you are nominating, find the microbadge then
1. Right click > Properties > Image properties > Location
2. Comment > Formatting > Insert outside image (tree icon)
I learned this from Cedric Chin on my other microbadge geeklist.

edit: technically this would be "the greatest microbadge approved through June 2008" award, but that isn't as catchy.

I know this one won't win, but it's my favorite band and it came out the way I intended.

It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

Microbadges have jumped the Shark

I think this is appropriate.

I designed it as well.

This one's for Ben Lott:

For the mouseover text:

P.S., apropos of nothing, I am a mere 6 GG shy of my very own badge.

This, I think is the greatest. The irony of it is just stunning.

It's not my best selling microbadge (that is the other BGG badge sitting under my avatar over there), but one I just had to create from the sheer volume of frustration behind it. It came out pretty well, IMHO!

And I keep hoping that someday, somehow, a new member will register for BGG and stick around long enough to earn the needed gold for a handful of microbadges, see this on the list, and...have no idea what it means.

I'm not holding my breath. soblue

I'll vote for the Banks microbage! Everybody who likes to read novels might benefit from trying Iain (M.) Banks novels. (He writes SF novels with the "M" in his name; he writes contemporary novels under the name Iain Banks)

Enjoy!

The very first micro badge I ever bought is still my favourite.

The very funny and cute "MicroBadger"



It made me almost shoot hot coffee out of my nose when I first saw it, it was such a terrible pun and I knew that as soon as I saved enough bag it was going to be mine...
*all for Silas all for Silas...!*

I just wish someone would add a mushroom mushroom micro badge to go along with it.

I introduced this publisher's logo as a sort of gamer's Valentine. I'm not above laughing at my own jokes, but this is what makes me love this microbadge: Lajos, the microbadge admin at the time, apparently shares my sophomoric sense of humor -- he went out of his way to change the auto-generated name (something like pic1234.jpg) to bootylover.jpg.
