Hobbies

Do you like reading books and graphic novels? Are you a PC gamer or a console gamer… maybe both? Do you enjoy the long hours of precision and technique required as you paint your army, readying it for battle!

Color I Play

What color do you choose when playing a game? For some of us it’s simply our favorite color. For others, we’ll do whatever it takes to get a color because it’s a matter of winning or losing!

Flags

We took a look at where users are visiting our site from, and found that we needed to expand our flag collection!

Can we have a “Granny fan” badge at some point? 🙂

I play yellow

A set with “Favorite Game Categories” would be great. Dice games fan, Deck Building fan, Train game fan, Dungeon Crawl fan…

I also second Corey Young’s suggestion for a “player style” set.

Yay! Stuff to spend my boardgaming monies on. I know there are sections for a lot of popular miniature, roleplaying and card games here, and I wonder how far the site plans to expand past the traditional board games? Do these areas get as much attention as the board games? Can we get badges to represent roleplayers added too?

I like the new badge sets. I picked up the black meeple badge.

How about a “player style” set? I’d get the MinMax and the Full Set Collector.

These look very nice. There are at least two that I would like to have to add to my profile. Now all you need to add is a Rabbit badge, like the other animals, and I would be happy.

@ Akden
Rather than adding more badge slots to appear next to avatars, our plans are to give users the ability to feature more of their badges on their profile pages. So rather than (or in addition to) a row of “recent achievement” badges, you would have another row of customizable badge slots.

Plus, we want to create a feature that will allow you to easily browse through all of the badges a user has achieved and purchased.
