Forewarning: "board game" vs "boardgame" - both are correct. Which variant i use depends entirely on what my fingers' muscle memory is in the mood for at the time.
boardgamegeek.com, a.k.a. BGG, is the website for the world of board games. Anyone who's anyone in the board game market is active on BGG. BGG has an ever-growing database of thousands, if not tens of thousands, of games and offers communities for every one: forums, image galleries, and file storage (mostly where fans upload content they create, but some publishers also post materials there). BGG is a free service but offers users who donate at least 25 U$D/year the option to disable all advertisements. (Paying the $25/year to disable ads has saved me literally thousands of Euros in Kickstarter projects i would have chased had i seen them advertised :|. Out of sight, out of mind!)
BGG is literally site i visit most often, and easily the one i'm most active on. Though it may not look like one, it is my social media site of choice.
- My BGG user profile.
- BGG also provides the "Geek Market" platform, a thriving online board game market, largely (mostly?) of second-hand games, and i often sell games i end up not liking there. So far, i've had nothing but positive experiences as both a buyer and seller there. Here's the list of title(s) i currently have for sale.
- Steve's Random BGG Blog is where i occasionally (okay, rarely) post tabletop gaming articles. The vast, vast majority of my posts are in game-specific forums. i'm a bit noisy on the site: in the top (roughly) 2.3% of posters on BGG, by post count. (That can be calculated based on the total number of users who have the level 1 poster microbadge vs. the count who have my level (as of this writing, 15), noting that an unknown, but non-zero, number of users don't post enough to get the level 1 badge.)
- Somebody (not me) created a "board game designer" entry for me on BGG because of the CGME microgames i posted online back in the early 2000s. Thus, on BGG, i'm listed as a game designer. It's technically true, i guess. (That's an ancient profile photo, though (2006).)
