OK, You have used the Board Game Designers Forum and you actually find it useful. You may be wondering, ‘How can I help out?’. Well, I’m glad you asked. Here are some ways you can ‘pitch in’.

Refer your friends to the BGDF. Post links to us on other websites. The more people that visit us the better.
Participate! Add downloads of software that you use to design your board games. Write articles! Add links to websites in the links maduras lesbianas section. Post threads in the discussion forum, join us for chat. This forum is nothing but 1’s and 0’s without your participation. Help us to become bigger and better!
Financially, this site currently costs me about $10 per month to run, not to mention the countless man hours spent maintaining and improving the site. $10 may not seem like a lot, but with one income and and a small child to raise, it is very hard to justify, especially to my wife. Donations to the BGDF will basically go to an ‘appease the wife’ fund. Donations will go a long way to keeping her happy and will help keep the BGDF off the list of things to downsize. If you find it in your heart to donate to the BGDF financially, there are several ways to do this:

The first and probably easiest way to do this is to donate with PayPal. The suggested donation is $10, but $5 is good too. Of course, if you’d like to donate more, I won’t send it back =) .

Make payments with PayPal – it’s fast, free and secure!

If you do not have a paypal account, you can join by clicking the banner below. If you join with this method, the BGDF get’s $5 and you get $5 too. This is a great method for helping the BGDF because it doesn’t cost you anything and we both get $5 out of the deal.

I accept payment through PayPal!, the #1 online payment service!

If you want to send a ‘traditional’ donation, such as a check / money order, you can snail mail it to:

Finally, the last method is to sign up for a website from my provider, For every person I refer to them, I get one months free hosting. This is very good for the BGDF. They don’t have an automated referral plan, so be sure to mention that referred you to them. It also might be a good idea to e-mail me and let me know that you signed up with them so I can follow up on the referral. is a great value and they are a good host to use, especially if you want to run a PHP-Nuke site like BGDF.

Gen Con
Description: Gen Con is the largest gaming convention in North America. In 2002 they had 26,000 attendees. Roleplaying games, boardgames, CCGs, wargames, and just about everything else is represented. There are now 3 different Gen Cons: Gen Con Indy in Indianapolis, Indiana (after having been in Milwaukee, Wisconsin for most of its life), Gen Con Europe somewhere in Europe (London in 2003), and Gen Con SoCal in Anaheim, California.

Description: Origins is one of the largest game conventions in North America, offering every form of game experience from board games, trading card games and roleplaying games, to live action games, historical games and miniatures. In 2002 they had 11,000 attendees. It’s largest rival, Gen Con, is more focused on RPGs, so if you’re into boardgaming and you had to pick between the two, Origins is probably the way to go.

Description: Protospiel is an annual get-together of amateur game designers to test and promote nearly finished game prototypes. The atmosphere is casual, yet everyone is serious about their goals and dreams of publishing games. This years was from July 17th-20th in Lansing Michigan. You will have to wait until next year to attend this convention.

Toy and Games Inventors Forum
Description: A site created to support the Toy and Game Inventors Forum, an annual convention held in Las Vegas. This year it is being held from September 22-24. Prices are steep for this event; so probably only serious game developers looking to sell a finished product would be interested in attending.

Hi there! Welcome to my boardgames pages. From here you can access details of all the boardgames I own – and have got as far as adding to the site. In practice, that means about one half to two thirds of the boardgames I own are on this site, with the others in a long queue to get here…

The current count of games on the site is 139! – although only 20 are online yet…

Note: The site has just been through a couple of moves and a period where I have been unable to keep it online. It is now undergoing reconstruction so not all the links work yet. If you want to be kept up to date, click on the subscribe link below and I’ll send you an e-mail as parts get added. 🙂
