Microbadges!

17 Apr

I have been playing with my BGG microbadges. I think I have a nice set on display now, even if one is a bit of an exaggeration.

While I was there, I noticed that I seem to have acquired about 20 new geekbuddies, putting my total at a very round 199. I assume this was the Queen of BGG effect as I definitely had considerably fewer than that two weeks or so ago. Sadly, I have no idea which are the new people, apart from the one or two who introduced themselves.

I commissioned a new microbadge today. It will be my own special microbadge for me to give to people as I choose.  At least, that’s the plan. It’s an elephant stamp – which is a term I had thought was commonly understood. Over the past couple of years, I’ve used the expression a couple of times, and have always been pulled up by someone not understanding what an elephant stamp is.

For the record? When you were a kid, and you did really good work, and your teacher used a rubber stamp to put a stamp in your book? That was an elephant stamp. Even if it had a bee on it, or an elephant, or a circus tent. Often, it would have said “Good work” or “Well done” or something.

So maybe it’s a bit patronising. But I will have fun with it.

    I never heard of an elephant stamp either.

    Great. BGG is down now.

    Your microbadge broke BGG.
