Let's Welcome Our New Users! (1/7/21)

Owner

Here are all of the users who joined in the last 22 days! Please give them a warm welcome :)

Hope your new year is off to a great start! Thanks for joining and I hope you find something worthwhile either through the community discussions, our search engine, or our latest giveaways. And if you're here to mostly look up prices, try turning on "Show Prices" in your user settings. That will make the price data more upfront on all of the pages you're navigating around. Also, the price data should currently reflect the currency of your location. If that's not happening, let me know and we'll work on any issues. We're also in the middle of completely redesigning our game page to simplify the amount of data and to make it easier to navigate and find the info you want.

Lastly, for us to get to know you, it'd be great if you could take the time to answer any of these questions: 

  1. How did you find Board Game Atlas?
  2. How long have you been in the hobby?
  3. What are your favorite 3 games at the moment?

 

Again, a big thank you for coming on board and please feel free to give any feedback through a forum post or by giving me or  a direct message.

I found BGA from 3minuteboardgames.com

I'm playing a lot of 18xx with friends

 

Owner7 days ago

Great to have you here, and has a great channel!

Nice! I haven't seen a ton of 18XX discussion here, but I'm sure we have some players.

Premium User7 days ago

Nice!  Those are quite heavy, are they not?  I think Heavycardboard does quite a few playthroughs of these games.

New User6 days ago

Some 18xx games are very heavy with a lot going on. But there are also some titles that are very straight forward and after a few games could be considered light (ish).

New User7 days ago

I found it from boardgameprices.com, which redirects the link to BGA instead. I'm looking to contribute more, would love to see this site grows as big as BGG, but we'll see.

Only 4 months.

Honestly, I don't know. Because of covid, I have been playing them digital, although I have five games in my collection already.

Hey there! Thanks for checking us out, hope you enjoy the experience. We ended up acquiring BGP back in late 2019 after the owner had reached out to us, and we recently merged the two together. A common feedback from BGP users was for price info to be more accessible, so if you'd like price info to be prioritized, you can turn on "Show Prices" under your account settings.

We recently did a complete redesign of the game page as well and that will be going live tomorrow. Hope you like the change!

New User7 days ago

Glad you guys merged. Whenever I want to view a game, I can see its price as well which is really neat. Anyway, I have contributed photos of games I have on here now. I am assuming gold coins can only be used on avatars, right?

Owner7 days ago

I think you'll really like the redesign :) (at least I hope so.. please give us feedback when Trent makes a post about it tomorrow haha)

Did you use the "BGG Import" tool by the way? It's the most convenient way if you have tons of data/images. As for the gold coins, they're currently used for two things: (1) avatar purchases, and (2) giving reactions to others' posts and comments (at least, for the ones that have a cost associated with them)

Whoa! Can't wait to see this!

Welcome! What 5 games?

New User7 days ago

Thanks. I found BGA when first posted on reddit about it. I asked him some question about working on the UX. A recent discussion about BGA on reddit made me decide to become a member

I guess I've been in the hobby for about 6 years now. My favorite 3 at the moment are Parks, Roll Player, and Century, Spice Road. Just recently got into Dice Hospital and Santorini as well.

Nice, welcome! I absolutely LOVE #Santorini. I just got the #Santorini New York, which is totally different, but gives a similar feel. Have you played that one at all?

New User7 days ago

I haven't. I'll have to look into that

Owner7 days ago

Nice, that must've been quite a while back then. I've been pretty on and off on my interest in #Roll Player. I have a feeling that I'd like it since I really enjoy those types of puzzles, but never went for it. If you like those games, you should check out #Lions of Lydia when it hits retail!

Premium User5 days ago

Still impatiently awaiting my #Lions of Lydia KS to fulfill...

"Hey Lyle."

Premium User7 days ago

Welcome all!

New User7 days ago

Thanks so much for the welcome!

  1. Started seeing contest posts and some article links. Honestly, I thought I set up an account months ago, but discovered that it didnt work. Oops? :)
  2. Been getting more into board games since GenCon 2018.. I usually go for MTG but started demoing boardgames. Got hooked
  3. My current three are Obsession, Too Many Bones and Cthulhu DMD

Ah man, I would love to go to GenCon one day. I know we have some fans of #Obsession and #Too Many Bones in here, so you'll fit right in, haha. Welcome!

I found board game atlas from a Facebook live feed shout out from Sarah from board games in a minute. 

I have loved games for a long time but didn't start getting really into the hobby until 2019.

My favorite games at the moment are Wingspan, Parks, and Viticulture, but I just got Obssesion so we will see if that jumps into the top three (also a suggestion from Sarah on the same live feed, thanks Sarah it looks amazing just came in the mail today).
