Hello all...well I have looked searched and muddled my way through, if this has been asked and answered I apologize. But you know sometimes it doesn't hurt to ask again. can I have a simple explanation maybe dot points on how to get geek gold? I know a few and they seem to be out of my reach ie; reviews/vids/podcasts/pics etc....

I am new here and to gaming and at the moment have 4 games and 5 card games as well as the whispered about 'standard' games monopoly/scrabble/Yahtzee/backgammon.I would however like to begin to save for an avatar. The dear friend who showed me this site gave me some but I will need to earn my own now....

so is there someone who would like to offer me the 'cliff notes' or point me in the right direction with a link as I am obviously not getting the search right.
Thanks

Write: Reviews, session reports etc.


Submit photographs.


Geekmod (under Misc) is a slow but sure way.

Enter Geek Gold competitions.

Beg, grovel and hope.

Apart from contributing with content, you could try begging. It works, look here:

Please can someone spare a little Geek Gold for me?

The things you mentioned are the most common and fastest ways to get GG. There may be other slower ways though. Others will chime in I'm sure.

Most of my gold is from sending out stuff.
Both from the Games for Geekgold Lottery and the Spare Parts Resource List.

Well for new women who plan on sticking around I offer 8 for filling out your profile and listing/rating your games.

Embezzling works, too.

Be sure to check out the Wiki page on Geekgold Laundering if you choose this option.

All great ideas. *not so sure about embezzling hehe*

The easiest way to start off is to start submitting photos, reviews and even making fun and creative geeklists. Competitions. Giving away games in the games for geek gold.

I think I went over 25 words, thus I'll pay the banker.

I got most of my geek gold from donating to the site during support drives.
I still have ten words left, but none after this.

Blackmail works, too. If you have a naughty pic or two of an admin that they would rather not have made public, you're golden.
