Hi all,

This my annual geeklist to allow new users to get microbadges of their favourite games, while providing a small incentive to help and contribute.

So here goes:

If you are a big fan of game X but don't have the microbadge to show it yet. Tell us of your contributions for this game and maybe other fans will help you spread the game's colors in the forums!
(NB: it takes 8 GG for a microbadge)


Here are the rules:

1) Add an item with the game whose microbadge you want.

2) Tell us why you want the microbadge, why are you a fan of the game, how you came accross it, tell us a little bit of your history with the game, tell us what you want really! If there are more than 1 MB for the game, tell us which one you'd like!

3) Tell us why you deserve the microbadge, what have you done, have you written some very good session reports? A pretty unique review? Did you translate the rules in another language? Did you upload useful files? You need to have participated in one way or another to be eligible!

4) How far are you from getting the MB?

5) Finally, if you do get the MB, be sure to update your profile and showcase it to everyone!

This giveaway is open to everyone, as long as you have participated and don't have the GG for a microbadge, even if you already have several other microbadges or an avatar.

Also, restrict yourself for fan microbadges!

Another remark: every GG tip to the geeklist will be donated to those who need the Microbadges, but I'd rather you tip directly those you think worthy.

Last but not least: I'd like to thank Blott once more for providing me with the idea in the first place with his christmas avatar giveaways!

Just a small example to get the list started. Note that I already have the Microbadge so no need to tip the item.

Why this game? I discovered the game randomly through BGG and immediately fell in love with rules. I also had the chance to play twice against Arturo, the game's designer and producer when he came to Paris.
Basically, the game is a hand management game based on the spanish civil war. Players get to build their decks from a pool of some hundred of card and then fight it out. But the way to victory is not just through military, you can also try to get a political victory or drawn out the war and win my demoralizing your opponent. Overall a great game with multiple paths to victory. I would strongly recommend the game to anyone fluent in spanish, or for those who aren't, download the english or french rules + card descriptions and make some paste-ups. It is entirely worth it!!

What have I done to deserve the Microbadge?
To be fair, I probably haven't done enough for the game, I believe it deserves a lot more recognition here, too bad it is not widely available... What I did though was translate the rules from spanish to french in order to help it come to the french market.

How much do I need to get the MB?
Well as I said, I already have one so this was just to get the list going! No need to tip!

Cheers!

Why this game?

Because it's fantastic. It was my (very recent) intro to heavy euro's.

What have I done to deserve the microbadge?

Actually...nothing. Nope, nada. I think I managed to post a not-so-helpful comment in it's forum once though... yeah all right, you probably shouldn't tip me for this one..yuk

Which MB do I want (need)

The one with the fisherman!
