I like to google famous Steeler fans or famous diabetics and such every once in a while. Of course google will let me know as it knows everything. But it doesn't know any famous boardgamegeeks. So I ask. Does anyone know of any famous boardgamegeeks? Anyone here famous for something besides for being a BGG?

Within the boardgame community I think the people from the Dicetower are pretty famous.
Also other reviewers like e.g.

Nox Spellenzolder

I'm cerebral. Does that count?

Cerebral - characterized by the use of the intellect rather than intuition or instinct

Who cares? Why does it matter to you? There's a reason why people prefer to use screen-names - you're it.

Wil Wheaton of Star Trek fame is a board game geek. I think he produces some online content involving board games as well?

Who Cares? I mean seriously, for one thing celebraties lead their lives in fish bowls and would like, if only for a brief moment, not to have their fame bandied about. If they are here they are here to get away from their fame if only virtually. Most of them that post regularly are polite when people congratulate them on this and such performance, but they would much rather not even have it mentioned. They want to talk about games what is a good game, how to make it better, what is a good game for whatever their purpose is.

IMHO treat them like people. Treat them the same way you would treat anyone else here on the board and let them be....well Geeks....and not a face on TV. Too often famous people get mistaken for their character on TV. Remember the "shove ensign crusher out an air lock." well Wil Wheaton is NOT Wesley Crusher, why should he for ever and a day have to put up with waves of hate over a job he was given to do and did it well for his age.

So I say again. Who cares? let famous people engage in their love of games and try not to mix their professional and personal life. You do not want your professional and personal life mixed on this board, unless you are a game publisher, why should they?
