We are thinking of running an official contest on BGG to promote our board game. Having taken part in other such contests before, we are aware that all contestants will receive a microbadge related to the contest.

After writing to the admin, we found out that the microbadge for the contest is not designed by the admin team. We had always thought it was part of the package. I have designed a few microbadges, but am a decidedly below average microbadger. shake My Significant Other does not design any. robot

Does any one know how other board game publishers design their contest microbadges? Do they do them inhouse, or make a discreet request for help from active microbadgers on BGG?

is listed as the designer for the most recent contests. I would geekmail him to find out if he designs the badges or if not he would be a good resource to find out how the process works.

Otherwise if his name is put on other designers badges for BGG reasons, I would suggest sending a geekmail to a badge designer to make a request of them to design the badge.

Is the microbadge admin. He might also help get to the bottom of this.

It was Chad who told us via geekmail that we needed to design our own microbadge.

If it was me I would geekmail some designers to find one who is willing.

I'm not sure if this geeklist is active or not, or if contest design microbadges are supposed to be kept more private but there is this geeklist.
