I would like to be able to referance a game and have the game name be a hyperlink to the game itself. I see it done regularly but am not tech savvy enough to figure out how to do it on my own. Any help appreciated!

In the editor there's a pull-down menu which right now says:
[Insert Geek Link [v]]

Click that and scroll down / click on Board game.

Start typing after search:, click the correct item and press [Go].

Try it out by replying to this and you'll see it right of [Tube] [vimeo] and [musical note].

Yup that works now try hyperlinking the top rated review thread on the front page of reviews:
"Dominion: Bland But Brilliant"


Its web address is:
http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/689954/dominion-bland-but-br...
http:/boardgamegeek.com/thread/689954/dominion-bland-but-brilliant

From this adress we know 689954 is its ID

SO -

Insert Geek list:

Select thread: ID 689954 =

Dominion: Bland But Brilliant

or the same process but using the different "link text (optional)":
Brillant but bland my arse!

This is the way to figure out all of the IDs and so you can now use all the special functions:

A catch all way to link to anything on the site is:

Insert geek link:
Custom link:

and whatever comes after the http://boardgamegeek.com bit

so
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/forum/59/boardgamegeek/new-user...

would be /forum/59/boardgamegeek/new-user-questions

becoming:

/forum/59/boardgamegeek/new-user-questions

or with link text:

new-user-questions forum
