Will you please adopt one of the 2015* microbadge orphans?

*January through July only

Hello everyone! Thank you for joining me to discuss a matter of great importance.

Microbadge designers slave away for countless hours every month to bring new microbadges from the inky depths of the imagination into beautiful and unique 16x16 works of art. Then they send out their new babies into the BGG wilds to find new families to love, nurture, and display them proudly under their avatars and in their profiles. For a microbadge there is no greater joy!!

Sadly, some microbadges are overlooked. They live in miserable isolation and deprivation. In these grim economic times, these hapless microbadges find no family in the cold harsh streets of BGG and are left to hide in the shadows under the geeklist overpasses dreaming that one day someone will spot them and love them for who they are. Who are these microbadges? They are the obscure, quirky, and sometimes incomprehensible - but they all deserve love and above all else A HOME!

How can you help?

Just pick one of the cute little urchin microbadges below, post the microbadge in your message and let everyone know why you have chosen it. Then you have two options:

1) If you have plenty of , buy the microbadge outright—the microbadges and designers thank you! Just let us know in your post that you've completed a full adoption!

—or—

2) If you need financial assistance from myself and others, say so and wait for the cavalry to arrive. I will give 1 per badge to each person who requests assistance until my runs out (first come first serve, so please check to see if someone else has said they've purchased a badge that you're interested in). Hopefully some of the other MB veterans will also help with tips.

Also: there is a microbadge available for purchase to show your support of the initiative as well  I gave a loving home to an orphan microbadge

I’ll do my best to keep this up to date. Bear with me as I try to fill Schwartzkopf’s prestigious shoes here.

Thank you for supporting the children microbadges!!!

I'd like to adopt the mb microbsadge.

Shipwrights of the North Sea (with the free PnP expansion) is a great game, and I am a Kickstarter supporter of Raiders and am looking forward to it arriving.

But, I am a little short of geek gold. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

I would love to adopt mb. I love the cartoon and would be happy to give Rigby a nice home. But, I may need a little help as I am little shy of .

Even though Rigby's pal, mb is not on this list, Rigby needs his friend and I will happily reunite these two when I get enough GeekGold.

The code to display microbades is [microbadge=xxxxx] where xxxxx is the microbadge number. To get the number, click on a microbadge; the microbadge number is the number in the url.

There is a road, no simple highway, between the dawn and the dark of night, and if you go no one may follow, that path is for your steps alone. Ripple in still water, when there is no pebble tossed, nor wind to blow.

To seek the sacred river Alph, to walk the caves of ice, to break my fast on honey dew and drink the milk of paradise... I had heard the whispered tales of immortality, the deepest mystery, from an ancient book I took a clue.
