ok I admit it...Brand new to this site and brand new to these types of games. I like rummy games and now own all possible dominion cards. Thinking of TtR as my next game.

So for all you experienced geeks - what is the easiest way to get gold on this freakin' site? I want some kool badges!!!!

Easy!
Just look at the front page.
All you need to do is to ask your girlfriend/wife to take some erotic position on your bed, you spread whatever game you have in front of her, bring your camera, make sure to focus and center on the bumpers, and voila!

Welcome to Board Game Geek. (Or Geekdo if you came in through the construction awning.)

The basic answer is to contribute to the site, even by re-asking questions that need re-answering every so often!

Welcome to the site - I'm pretty new myself (thirtysome days, I think). Best thing to do is contribute; it's all in the wiki, and it's not too difficult. I had enough gg to get my avatar at around twenty days in. Good luck!

The Far Wilds contest can net you 25 in short order. You just have to sign up and play a few quick games against the computer. Make sure to play the games first, and do the quiz to enter the contest after you get your bonus code.

I've been here for a year and the Far Wilds thing finally netted me my Avatar. That contest plus a Session report will get you ~26 GG or 3 Microbadges.

The other much easier option. DONATE! Not only will you snag a bunch of GG but you will also get the totally hip Donation badge on your profile! Oh yeah also you'll help the site keep running.

You could also donate to the site. For every dollar you give, you get one GeekGold, plus, when you donate over a certain amount (I think it's $15 or $25) you get the "patron" tag, plus free adblocking.

Since you're brand new, start playing games and write some session reports. Dominion ones are definitely welcomed. One session report for each permutation of Dominion cards... okay, get crackin!

Indeed. In my years here, I've never seen an easier way to earn GG than tbe Far Wilds contest (which I believe is open for two more days).

Play the Sylvans against easy AI and you basically don't even need to learn how to play - you just about can't lose even if you try.


After being stuck at geekbadge-but-no-uber for years, that contest finally vaulted me over the uber threshold. I can now make an uberbadge if and when I find the time and motivation to design something new.

So wait...

When I DONATE over $25 I get something FREE?

$25... Free...

Free... $25...

I fail to see this.

Write a review or session report, post a game image, moderate contributions, upload a file for a game-aid, donate, or create an entry for an unknown game. All of those things are covered in the site wiki entries for new users already, though.

Nobody's expecting contributions that are outstanding, but if they are useful people may even give you tips that you'll have earned!
