I just wanted to take the time and sort of give a brief overview of what I think of the BoardGameGeek community - in my first month's experience.

I really enjoy and appreciate this community! I love learning about new games and connecting on such a nerd-level. I have performed 2 trades so far and they have both been painless. Really enjoying the general honesty of the community.

Anyway, I just wanted to give a big shout-out and thanks to all of YOU for making my first month here a fantastic one! I'm not trying to be sappy or anything - just sharing =)

I guess if you wanted to reply.. maybe share what your favorite part of BGG is. I would love to hear your thoughts and maybe I will discover something new about the site.

Thanks dudes and dudettes.

I was drawn by the articles on strategy. Now I also like playing the games via Play By Forum.

I've been involved here for quite some time and other online communities now and in the past and this is definitely the best one. The site is great, I love the subscriptions so I can stay involved, and the people are generally pretty friendly.

Super! Thanks for sharing.

The Geek Remains my favourite place on the internet - I love the games but it's the people that makes it.

If you fancy an avatar say hello here: No Geek Left Behind... (How to get an Avatar)

These are my favourite guides for using the site: Every-Gamer BGG Guides

Yep. This place is full of really nice people. You might catch whiff of some people who just like to gripe, but they are generally few and far between.

The niceness of this community is personified at BGG.Con if you ever have a chance to make it out. Super fun with a great atmosphere.

Welcome around. I came here originally because you usually find an answer to any question about games in less than a minute
