BoardGameGeek >> The Game!
Actions include posting photos, reviews, player aids & session reports for direct GG, or writing to the forums, creating geeklists, logging games played, entering your game collection and adding comments to other posts to earn Reputation. The higher a player's reputation, the more likely their content will earn bonus GG via tips, or get special action cards/favors to reflect the GeekBuddy analysis/interest/community angle.
The different options take up different amounts of time (ie, Action Points) and some are synergistic. If you spend APs to write a review of Tigris & Euphrates, it costs less to also write a session report for the same game in the same turn. But different game categories are "hot" at different times -- so you may be spending actions on a genre that won't get as many visitors/page views/exposure as others.
Random events would crop up to incorporate BGG-isms and personalities -- Server Down (fewer AP to spend), Sisteray Poo-Poos a Popular Game (driving that game genre's interest up), Tom Vasel Posts a New Review (lowering exposure to any reviews written for the same game by other players), Greg Schloesser Posts A New Session Report (ie, Tom Vasel effect, but for SRs), New Titles Announced for Essen (increasing popularity of those genres).
I've got about 4 or 5 pages of notes typed out already... I just don't know if I'll take the time to refine it and make a playable version just for personal/goof-off use (or possibly for the next Geekway to the West?)...
Does that make me pathetic? Or just cement my position as a Geek forever and ever and ever?
