Every once in a blue moon I post something on BGG and I often run into what I think is a bit of Board Game Snobery. Where if you don't say something exactly right you get torn to shreds. Of if your new to the hobby you can't have real opinions. I can't even imagine how the Engine Building as a Mechanic thread would go over there.
So thank you to everyone for such a great community built on our love for Board Gaming and not needing to know everything about the hobby or have it be the only important thing in your life.
