Hi guys,

All the nice people who have replied to my threads asking for recommendations have posted links to the games in BGG. It is very helpful and convenient.

How do I do that? I couldn’t find the answer in the FAQs.

See where it says "Insert Geek Link" once you are typing a reply? Pick Board Game from the drop down and then it will pop up a box and you can start typing the name of the game you want to add, then click it and hit Ok or whatever it says and it will insert the code.

Above the editor is a dropdown-list: 'Insert Geek Link'.
Click on it and select 'board game' from the list. In the following dialog just type the name of the game in the search field (it has an auto complete function and will start to list games with matching names after the first few letters). Select the game you meant and click 'go'. That's it and you get a shiny nice little link like this one: Blood Rage

And now I'm trying...

Portobello Market

... by giving a shout out to a game I've always loved.

It is also up to you whether you allow the site to fill in the board game name, like this:

Camel Up

Or fill it in yourself with an alternative, like this:

Camel Cup

You just add your own wording between the tags.

Thanks! I was wondering this as well! This website needs a 'how-to' video.
