What do inquiring New User minds want to know? New Users have many questions; experienced BGG members have even more answers. Those answers may be obvious (to the experienced member), snarky, deep, tongue-in-cheek, hilarious, thumb-worthy, concise, rambling, nearly impossible to understand, clear as a bell, and so on and so forth.

Below are links to the New User Questions forum for posts with the words who, what, where, when, why, or how in the subject. Obviously this isn't everything New Users ask about, but it does cover quite a few topics.

I'll update from time to time and would like to keep the list itself "clean", so I'm not allowing additions or comments. If you have suggestions, please Geekmail me instead.

If you can't find what you're looking for here, try the HOWTO BGG forum.

Update: Thank you all for your support. Collectively, so to speak, you've given me this little guy...meeple If you're not sure who he is, just ask in the appropriate forum.

Update: Due to changes in the structure and features of BGG, some of the posts/answers below may not currently apply. I have given current alternate answers in some cases.

Update: Where did the past 6 years go? I haven't been updating the items below for quite some time, but maybe there's enough there already. If you think there's a thread that should be added, just let me know. I did add a few things today.
