Is there a way to monitor when a game gets added to a Geeklist? For example, lets say I want to acquire "Game X" when it is available for purchase via someone's Geeklist. I'd like to get a notification if possible. I cannot seem to figure it out.

If you subscribe to the geeklist (via the button at the top of the list) you will get a notification when an item is added.

First, subscribe to the game.

Then click "edit subscriptions" to adjust your GeekList preferences.

Yeah but the problem is I want to be notified whenever the game I want is added to any Geeklist.

I will try this, I just set it up. However, I don't think I understand how this works. For example, take Terraforming Mars, which has been in many auction Geeklists, when I scroll through the Geeklists on the Terraforming Mars page I don't see any of the auctions, so not sure this method will give me what I want.

When viewing geeklists for a game, there's a Filter dropdown. Click it and choose "Auction & Trade". But there is no option under edit subscription to specify which type(s) of geeklists you care about. You may be right that subscribing to a game doesn't include additions to auctions. I don't know.

Carefully ! I once tried to edit these settings ... and soon get overwhelmed and went back to the basic setting.

Are you trying to see when the game comes up for auction? If yes, then first make sure it's flagged in your wishlist. Then go here: http://bggauctions.workingasintended.com/auctions and filter by your user name. I have the filtered URL in my quickbar so I can keep an eye on anything on my wishlist. It doesn't provide an automatic notification, but makes it a bit easier to get an overview of what's available that you are interested in.

To be notified when someone puts up one of your Wishlist games on the BGG Marketplace:

In the Status column of your Wishlist, check Want in Trade, Want to Buy. (I'm not sure how much that helps, but it couldn't hurt.)

And on the individual game page for that game, after you've clicked Subscribe, click on the little arrow next to Subscribed, then click on Edit Subscription. Finally change the default "no" to "YES" for Product for Sale.
