Bugs Update: Recent Topics & Main Menu (11 Dec 2020)

Main Menu drop down bug has been fixed. You may need to clear your cache to pick up the new code.
Recent Topics paging, uploading images and preview bugs require a patch which has not yet been released.

× Welcome to one of the oldest board game communities on the Internet. That may sound like hyperbole but it really is true.

We are really happy to have you here. Unfortunately, being online we can't bond with you over a game so you'd know right away how happy we are to meet you. For now, you'll just have to take our word for it.

This site has always thrived on lively discussion and spirited but civil debate. We hope that newcomers here will find a welcoming atmosphere where game enthusiasts of all levels of experience and commitment will have something to add to the conversation. You never need to prove your “gamer cred” here. Whether you have been playing board games for a few months or a few decades; whether you have a huge collection or a small one; whether you have been a member here for years or just joined today – your opinion is valued here.

We know that it can be intimidating to jump into a new community and want to assure you that this is NOT the kind of forum where people will tell you that you posted something in the wrong place, or that you should have found an existing thread on the topic, or that you shouldn’t have resurrected an old thread.

So if you find a thread or an article discussion that interests you, whether it is old or new, feel free to jump in. Want to discuss a specific game or board gaming related topic just start a new topic. If you don’t know which forum to put it in, just make your best guess (we really don’t care all that much. It’s easy enough for a moderator to move it or merge it, if necessary).

A good place to get started is by introducing yourself in the “New Members Introduce Yourself” thread (below) or by telling us what you have been playing in the “What BOARD GAME(s) have you been playing?" thread ( therewillbe.games/forum/35-mos-eisley-ca...ave-you-been-playing ).

Have fun, and we look forward to hearing from you.

Been a long time lurker, and almost five year participant at BGG. I finally registered after getting sick of the BGG passive agressive, lets hype silly fluffy gateways games crap. There seems to be a growing amount of idiots who can't handle any constructive criticism about a game they love. I especially hate the growing dislike of any game that has complexity, strong theme, or strategy.

I like Ameritrash game, Steve "I am a crazy Man" Avery, and even cube pushers if they are brutal (sorry I still have some Euro in me).

Just wanted to say hello and I look forward to more trash talk!

Great to have you on board Johnny- just be aware that if Avery sold you a "pool pass", you got ripped off. There is no rooftop pool.

Also, he is not "King" of the site.

He may not be king of this site, but he was the king of my last Gen Con experience....it was a blast!

No I'm more like the really awful comedian that they just can't catch with the hook.

...and thank a lot Barnes for ruining my whole "AT CLUB PASS" scheme. That was a pretty good gig until you blew it.

So you're like the Les Dawson character, Cosmo Smallpiece?

Sorry Barnes you were no where to be found....only other FAT members were there to forge the weekend of fun and extreme chaos. Perhaps this year if you come out of your bunker we can all have a glorious Gen Con.
