The best thing I ever did with Geek Gold is trade some of it for a new-in-shrink copy of Flash Point: Fire Rescue. It's a game I wanted, but it was pretty far down my list of priorities. For the click of my mouse, I owned it and didn't need to pay a cent in cash. Very nice.

I use my GG to enter contests (many require you to tip 1GG to enter), drawings (GG lottery games mostly; in those each GG you tip gets you a chance to win a game), and occasionally, to buy microbadges and win GG auctions (people selling stuff straight for GG).

Getting GG is a harder problem. One solution is to beg for it or act like you don't know what it is so people tip you (you've successfully done that here). (j/k) I earn some GG by posting. I've earned other GG by writing reviews and submitting images and session reports. But most of my GG has come from being a paid member (if you support the site, you typically get a reward of 100GG+). You can also give away games in the GG lotteries, and earn 1000's.

How come these others 'coddle' and/or perpetuate this sort of 'misbehaviour'? Why doesn't the OP read where within the Forum, it has an explanation SET OUT & 'pinned' upon just THAT being inquired about? Rewarding the 'laziest' has become quite profitable, so no doubt they'll continue 'duping' the remainder, and they're NOT helping at all, other than FOR themselves selfishly.
