Damn I am so glad I now have every Monopoly version memorized.

Type in April Fools in the geekdo search engine to get a surprise....I wonder how many other Easter Eggs there are.

I could almost see this as true...imagine if google and the geek merged....See we answered all of the complaints for a messy complicated home page by stream lining it to look simple and elegant...just like google.

Yeah, I want to look at something on BGG and get some stupid, unfunny "joke" that I have to play along with. Yeah, impaired usability is real funny. Even less desire to support the site. Mission accomplished.

It is funny how many people complain about April Fools jokes, though.

Bah, humbug!

I for one thought it was a good joke, it kept me entertained for a good half hour searching random stuff.

Anyone else do a search for Puerto Rico and get a Rico Suave video???

Hee hee!!

I'm not surprised that some Geeks aren't amused.

Gaming, after all, is SERIOUS business.


Man, that was one heck of an April Fool. Lots of work involved in that.

Nice Job BGG Guys! I thought it was very funny!!

I did a search for profile and got a bunch of versions of Monopoly. Then I followed the link at the top to BGG as normal. All in all it was simply no big deal.

If you go on the internet on April Fool's and expect a site NOT to do something strange that day, then you haven't been on the internet enough.

I expect a reasonably functional website if its big draw is the content. A site like slashdot makes a lot more sense to do something like this. That and I expect better humor.

You know something is really engrained in mainstream culture when people feel "entitled" to it 24x7 on their terms.

Perhaps you should ask for a refund...

Yes it was!
I cant see any harm done... I didn't even notice it, until it was too late. I really wanted to participate!
