Here's an FAQ thread collecting information for new players on A Game of Thrones: The Card Game (Second Edition).

https://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/1411356/new-player-faq

Is there a way to get this pinned in the General forum for that game?

The more common pattern for bringing such resources to everyone's attention is to link is from the "More Information" section of the game (which is a wiki page anyone can edit).

It might also be a very good idea to move this FAQ itself over from the forum to a wiki page, so it isn't dependent on the original poster remaining available long-term.

Wow, that's a really nice post about the game and such!

Another thing that happens is that readers of your post will thumb it like crazy if they find it really useful. Then, when anyone sorts the General forum by "Hot" (on the game's page), it will rise to the top for all to see! I see it is already in the top 6 threads when sorted that way.

EDIT: It was nice of you to credit the original creator of the subject, too!

This said it's fairly rare for a thread to be pinned in a game forum, instead generally thumbs are used to find the best contributions.

Thank you, all. Adding the original as a web link is actually a great idea.

And as you can see, the thumbs have done their job! It is almost at the top of the General Forum, when the list is sorted by Hot (on the game's page )
