Over the last eight years. It's kind of embarrassing.

I don't think that's unreasonable. Now if you had said in the last 8 minutes or days, then you might have something.

I have some geekgold, but I'm not really certain what its good for (aside from being able to buy badges etc). is there something more that I'm missing?

Games 4 GG lotteries can be a big drain (or replenishment, based on which side you are on)

Badge (50GG), Uber-Badge (50GG after badge purchase), Overtext for Avatar (100GG), and Overtext for Uber-Badge (100GG).

If I made any omissions or GG cost errors please feel free to correct me.

1. Buy 10-15 $ GC for Amazon or Board games online retailer.
2. Enter it at G4GG lottery.
3. Sell GeekGold
4. Profit!

Is that really happening though?

Assuming $1 = 30 and looking at the last two completed months of G4GG lotteries, this is what I found.

Also, the two people who ran these four lotteries tend to tip a lot of the other lotteries, so it doesn't look like they are actually selling geekgold as opposed to just fueling their own lottery tipping habits.

September 2012

#70 -$25 + (758 -> $25.27) = $.27 (profit)

October 2012

#2 (-$51 to -$63) + (2612 -> $87.07) = $24.00 to $36.07 (profit)
#46 -$50 + (1555 -> $51.83) = $1.83 (profit)
#48 -$15 + (410 -> $13.67) = -$1.33 (loss)

How does everyone seem to have so much GG? I've been scrounging for months and barely have had enough to buy an avatar.

I see people with GG accounts of 6k and it boggles my mind!

This is a great list of ways people get lots of geekgold.

GeekGold Doesn't Grow on Trees - How to Become a GeekGold... Thousandaire?

Also, more than 2k was auctioned off during the Jack Vassel Memorial Fund charity auction.
