As some of you will know, there are some people who have recently been critical of our Geek and stormed off like petulant children taking their content with them. One of those users started a Geeklist to air his complaints but was apparently uninterested in any real dialog and disabled the means to comment or respond to his complaints.

Not surprisingly this unwillingness to hear the opinions of others or accept criticism means that there was also no room to talk about what kicks ass about BoardGameGeek.

So now, I've written this List in an attempt to explain my beliefs and where I think BGG is doing things right. I doubt that there's anything new in this List for those who visit the site every day the way I do, but it may help enlighten those negative and poisonous folks as to why, despite its flaws, BGG is doing a tremendous job and mostly, getting things right..

Note: This List is NOT locked from public additions and comments, so it should remain a clear record of what we ALL want to say. I believe that community is about dialog, and I welcome your participation here. I'm sure there will be those who feel the need to storm off and be grumpy and ask to have all of their content contributions removed, and yes, even they are welcome here.

This though is the right side of the story. I'll start with one. You add the rest.

edit: I want to clarify that my purpose here is not to antagonize anyone, but to provide a real response, in the form of evidence, as to why some of the complaints about the site are moot. This isn't a "see ya' later, loser" thing, but an opportunity to say, "You know, that guy is wrong. There is just too much useful and purposeful content on the Geek to give it up or to destroy all my content." Let's build some community by talking about what is working, instead of grousing about what (or who) is ruining it.

edit2: it has been pointed out to me that linking to the original Geeklist is in poor form, and counter to the purpose of this list, and I agree, so I've removed the link.

BGG is vast container of board game information.

This site is an vast, encyclopedic resource for the gaming hobby. Solely through user contributions and the passion of its members it includes raw data on the board game hobby, including information on authorship, publication, reprint history, game components, art, rules, strategy, reviews and so on and so on. There is no other website on planet earth with as much information about this hobby.

I've been on-line in one form or another since the late 80's when I was in 7th grade. BGG has been one of the friendliest and most generous gathering of strangers that I have ever come across.

It's sad when anyone focuses on the few negatives (in comparison the many many positives), and ignores all the other great things that BGG has been, is, and will be. Just look at what BGG.CON has become as a result.

If they only took the blinders off their limited perspective and expanded their scope a bit they would see that BGG is comprised of many different groups of fine folk from across the world who volunteer their time creating play aids, answering numerous and repeated questions without fail, offering advice and suggestions, noting hot deals, helping other gamers track down grail games or simply buy a title not available locally, or maintaining the wiki entries, submitting images and links, or sending free games and money to those down on their luck or just because they feel like it.... but that's just the start of the list.

Can BGG improve? Sure, but it's pretty damn impressive as it exists right now. To shrug and discount all of that and leave (but first taking a few swipes at BGG and it's user base with a broad pen) is petty.

Who doesn't like using virtual currency earned via a multitude of means for chances to win games? Better yet, who doesn't like giving away older, unplayed, heck - even new and unopened games to fellow Geeks who will give them a good home? All the while receiving piles of GG to be used to win other games - it's a win for everyone.

Among many other events that take place regularly, this is a shining gem in my eye. Maybe I'm biased since I've won 3 games since its inception though!

I also can't help but mention game exchange in general - a long time ago, I received an absolutely free, no-strings attached version of Acquire from

If there is one thing that is overflowing on BGG it's generosity. Some players are very willing to offer lopsided trades. Others offer up for lotteries (see above). And thousands donate to the site each year to keep it up and running (earning a shiny supporter badge).

But the greatest example is the annual Secret Santa gift exchange, coordinated by Tom Vasel. Literally hundreds of BGG users gave and received a multitude of games, and much joy was spread - not just in the US, but all around the world.

So if you didn't participate last year, make sure you do in 2010! It's all about the giving.

Lame game to shout out some great causes: Charity Auctions. Geeks are real people and sometimes they have real (major) problems. This last year several auctions each raised THOUSANDS (in some cases, nearly 10,000 dollars) of dollars to help other Geeks in need. Small games, big games, grail games, generous bids all pull us together as Geeks.

Edit: see Item # 18 for an example

Every year that I come back here (I mostly hang around BGG from Christmas time to mid-Feb, but I do believe that this time I'll be staying for a while), I realize that the funniest people I've ever read on the Internet are all here. When I need a laugh, there's no better place than here. BGG is then not only a gaming resource and a community, it's also a healthy product!

BGG gives people a chance to share unpublished games they’ve made. Because of this site a game I’ve made has been played by people I’ve never met even though it has never been published, thank you Board Game Geek.

(I didn’t make Zombie in My Pocket, but it is a great example of the kind of talent we have here.)

I love that I can write reviews and share comments about the games I play to help inform others about games they might be considering for a purchase. But what really makes this site great is the fact that you can find so many varying opinions. And, in most cases, these people can simply agree to disagree and both opinions have their own validity. So, if you hate Agricola, you can find hundreds of people who agree with you. And, on the flip side, if you love Agricola, there's hundreds who share that opinion too!

Board Game Geek is by far my favorite website dealing with board games and board game related material. Before finding this site the nichiest game I ever played was Settlers of Catan. Had it not been for this site, I'd probably be wasting my time watching funny YouTube videos rather than reading about obscure board games that I may never get a chance to play. That being said, there is one relatively minor thing about this site that has annoyed me as of late. (See link to thread in title)
