Hello!

Before I begin my question I wanted to clarify that I did read the pinned post on how to get GeekGold but I do have an additional question.

I want to purchase GeekGold. It is to my understanding that the Auctioning system is not functioning until further notice, so is there any other way that I can purchase GeekGold through users? I'd be happy to pay using PayPal but I want to ensure that I'm not going to be scammed by just randomly sending money to someone. So what's the best way to go about doing so?

Thanks in advance!

Hi neighbor

I'll give you a bit.
I'm new here too, I was able to get about 40 geekgold in a few minutes actually just because people were nice. I made a post asking what people do here so I could be more in the community and someone just gave me 30 gg, but at the same time I posted a comment on a thread I found from the how to get geekgold page that helps people get avatars and the two overlapped a bit so I ended up with 40 or so. I don't remember what the post was called I'm still trying to figure out how you can see what you already posted.

If I can find my way back to it and back to here I'll try and link that thread.

Do a geeklist with cute cats in boxes and ask people to vote on the cutest with geekgold?

Just check a user's GG balance, if it's pretty large, then just GM them and make an offer. If you look here:

Games for Geekgold (G4GG) - September 2016

you will find many users with large caches of GG.

Geekbay sometimes has posts from users selling geekgold... here's a current one from a reputable user that seems to still be active:

Here's the Geekbay forum so that you can look for others:

Small clarification: you can donate anytime during the year and get the bonus, but the donations in December are what increase the bonus.

You can also earn GG from BGG for posting pictures, reviews and session reports of games you've played. The reward is entirely up to the moderators, but I think I've earned around 10-15GG this way without trying too hard.

Wish I would have known this. I just donated $15 a few days ago. Now my contribution won't count towards the bonus. yuk

Perhaps that was new last year? I'm pretty sure it wasn't always that way.

I think No Geek Left Behind... (How to get an Avatar) is the thread you are looking for.

Also, you can see where you've posted by clicking on your username and going to the 'Contributions' tab.
