Starting this week, I wanted to present a fun challenge for everyone to participate in!
Here's challenge #1: Share Your Collection - Make a forum post with a picture of your collection and share your thoughts about it!
1. Link your post to the Weekly Challenge topic page. This will help keep track of participants so that I can give out rewards easily!
2. Share a little bit about your collection. Some things for you to think about are:
- How long have you been in the hobby? How long have you been collecting?
- How would you describe your board game preferences?
- What are the favorites in your collection? Why?
- What is your least favorite (or least played) game in your collection? Why?
- What do you like about your collection? Is there anything you'd change?
- Which game would you absolutely LOVE to add to your collection and why?
- Feel free to add anything else to this!
Nothing set in stone yet, but I have several ideas on how I'd reward everyone who participates! Some thoughts I have are:
- Badges - I will be creating digital badges that I can award for everyone who participates (time to draw more often!) In general, I want to work on rewarding everyone whenever they reach certain milestones such as initiating conversations with a number of new users, participating in a weekly challenge, posting their 1st/10th/100th article, having a forum post with more than 100 comments, having a forum post with more than 100 "likes" (we'll be switching over the "upvotes" to "likes" soon) and many other milestones you'd reach while participating in the community.
- Giveaway - I will randomly select one of the participants to give away a copy of #Last Stand! It's a game designed by @trentellingsen that he launched and funded through Kickstarter.
Have fun and I look forward to seeing your posts! I will do my best to participate in as many of these challenges too :)
