So I finally saved up 30 additional geekgold after giving in to the temptations of microbadges and once in a blue moon tipping someone and now I can't seem to find where to buy the Uberbadge. All it has listed is buying an Avatar and the price says 50 GG...

Are Uberbadges a thing of the past? Is it in a different place? Are they now 50 GG instead of 30? I must have missed the announcement...

How to BGG in regards to Uber badges?

Don't you have to buy a Geekbadge first?

It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

You know, they say there was a man who jumped from the forty-FIFTH floor? But that's another story...

Yup. 50 for the Geekbadge.

Then 50 more for the Uberbadge.

I believe you first have to buy a geek badge. Go to your profile, and right next to your avatar it should look like this:

[Edit Avatar]
[Buy GeekBadge]
[Buy Microbadges]
[Edit Microbadges]

Yes, it costs 50. And then I believe you can buy an Uber Badge for another 50. Yup, harsh.

For me, saving up for an avatar, then a geekbadge, then even a few microbadges - all of that didn't seem too bad. The grind to get the Uber badge, though, is downright painful. Good luck!

Thank you all. I guess I thought the Avatar was the badge and the little badge above the Avatar was the Uberbadge. So I will keep saving...except that the amount of GG I have been earning does not appear to be keeping up with GG inflation....
