I was going to post this in recommendations but figured it would probably go into something like hot deals. I understand that there is potential for heavy spam in this as well so that is why it might have already been looked poorly upon.

My question is if there are any active threads or forums for external giveaways or contests in BGG? For example, Fantasci provides giveaways frequently but if you weren't on their mailing list, you wouldn't know about it.

I think he's looking for contests and giveaways that are not listed on BGG.

I subscribe to the Today in Board Games newsletter and it frequently contains links to contests around the interwebs that are giving away board games. As a result, it's introduced me to other board game blogs/websites so I guess the contests do work.

Here you go.

Roger Hicks also posts them on BGG in his blog: [blog=2729][/blog], which you can also subscribe to.

if you go to the forum list... ie

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/forums/region/1/boardgamegeek

it says for this hot deals forum..

"Post the hottest prices and deals you find on the net.Please post deals you've found, not items you are seeking. No coupon codes, no dealers, no eBay auctions, no SPAM."

probably "discussing retailers" or another, but definitely not this forum...

Thanks for the direction and suggestion. As. I said, I did not know where this might land. I will transition the conversation to that forum. Apologies for the hot deal spam.
