Over my last three years I've stumbled across hidden pages, shadowy guilds, unexplained microbadges, seemingly innocent geeklists and the like. At first I didn't think much of them but, as of late, I have realized that there is a myriad of shadowy societies and networks woven throughout BGG. Some of these groups are obscure while the others are right there on the front page for all to see. Chances are you might even belong to one and not realize it.

In this list I will briefly explore these organizations--the ones that I know of anyways. Obviously I haven't discovered them all. I invite you to share any you may be aware of or expand on what I have here.

Geek of the Week

Before you start throwing tomatoes!!! I know what you are thinking--GotW isn't a secret! It's there to see on the front page! True, true. Members of GotW are not secret. How to become a GotW is also not a secret. But what is a secret is the special, secret, benefits obtained after becoming GotW. It's a whole lot more than just a week answering questions. I hear that, once selected, these geeks are able to give out 2 thumbs on posts. Furthermore, any GotWs that travel to BGG.CON are invited to secret, back room, high stakes board games with Aldie and Derk.

You remember that episode of Simpsons when Homer got inducted to the secret society and they told him the real number to call was not 911, it was 912. Uh-huh. More of the like awaits those who become GotW.

Members: 203
Induction: Chosen by the previous GotW

Wolf of the Week

The mysterious Wolves of the Week. They aren't as public as the GotWs, conducting their business in the more shadowy forums. What actually goes on behind their closed doors is beyond me, but it might have something to do with raw meat and heavy metal music...

Order of the Golden Meeple

Like the Masons, the Golden Meeple was once shrouded in mystery. Nowadays, anyone can get in. There aren't apparently any benefits, but that might just be the case for the lower ranks. Perhaps the seniors, like Chapel, enjoy some secret perks.

The Wibblecon Group

mb

The Bilderberg Group originally met in a hotel in the Netherlands in 1954. 53 years later the Wibblecon Group meets in a hotel in Belgium. They claim that they only met in order to play some war games, but I'm quite certain larger, worldly, issues were also discussed. There are several connections between the two groups; both met in hotels, elite attendees, exactly 53 years apart....

The Golden Camel Coterie

No other group is shadowed in mystery and intrigue or is as enigmatic as the Golden Camel Coterie. Only 4 members belong to this secret group (until Dkahnt steels one for himself like he did with the Golden Meeple originally). Their intentions are a closely guarded secret. I hope that they are around to provide balance with the 513 Society.

What about cults?

To steal a phrase from one of their 'numbers' "What about Geekquestions?"

A curious lot. More of a cult then a Society it appears. I've just recently noticed they even keep stats on each other. Sounds kinda strange. But, they hide in the dark recesses of the geekdo.

Members: 21 (admitted addicts) But, where's thier advocate?
Induction: The first test, is to actually find where to ask and answer the geekquestions, then you are on your way. But, to really be one you need to ask and answer hundreds, nay thousands of questions. Some inane, some not so inane.

This super-secret society is shrouded in mystery. It reared its beautiful head at 2pm CST one fateful day in the sacred halls of Chit Chat--March 5, 2009.

How did it come about? Who masterminded it? Which members were directly involved? Who are the non-members that tried to subdue/control them?

These and other questions must remain unanswered as legion members are sworn to secrecy.

However, I can reveal that

Just watch out for the First Citizen, he seems to think that violent overthrow is the way to go.

Elephant Stamp from Melissa



http://www.boardgamegeek.com/browse/microbadge/5047

It's an elephant. And it's pink. But what is it? How does one get it? Where does it come from? Why does it exist? What does it mean? Is it the first sign of a conspiracy? A coup? A nightmare? A delusion? A cult? The urgent and pressing questions quickly begin to pile up one after the other, and another unsolved mystery rapidly begins to knot its way onto the threads among the Great Board Game Geek, and torment the curious among the masses of Gaming Geekdom... Melissa appears to be the high priestess of this society, and if you are looking for enlightenment, you can start your journey here.

I don't have a lot of intelligence (cough) - let me start again...
I don't have a lot of intelligence about this group but know that it is definitely a secret society! You've seen their postings, I am sure. Right there on the Front Page. They speak in heiroglyphics to ensure that the rest of us are completely oblivious to their devious plots.

Check out this example: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/425288

I believe this thread was conspiring to set up a card game in the hot tub, but I am not entirely sure of their motives. What other treachery could they possibly be up to??

Chain(s) of Generosity Participant

Some say the most relevant part of the name is the "Chain" portion since members are chained down to the obligation of mailing someone a game. However, most members like to downplay the "Chain" and up-play the "Generosity" portion. Those that have joined will espouse the both the benefits and relative ease of joining. However, there are many that covet induction, yet continue to fail to meet the requirements for entry. Strangely, they continue to try, somehow falsely lead into believing that luck has something to do with it. Ameritrashers will tell you that luck can be mitigated by good strategy and preparedness.

Current members: 198
