BGDF.com will be inaccessible. Our Hosting Company is moving all of their servers to a BRAND NEW state-of-the-art facility. As such the server on which we are hosted is scheduled to be moved on the 16 May 2023 and the downtime expected is 24 hours... We will see how long it really takes to get the server back up-and-running as the window for the migration to the new facility is estimated at 24 hours. So please do not be concerned in on Thursday you are not able to access the website during that day ... Our hopes are that the website will be back online on the 17 May 2024 (which is clearly 24 h ..read more

Site Ads and Google Experiments
Board Game Designers Forum

Hello Everyone, I just wanted to inform you that there may be some Google Ads that show-up which are NOT the usual "reserved area" on the Right-Hand Side. These are what Google calls "Experiments" and sometimes they last for MONTHS! In one particular experiment; an Ad would appear as a Modal Window as you visit the website (golly gosh darn). I could NOT ACCEPT this "experiment" because it is the MOST annoying thing to get some kind of GIANT AD and be forced to click on an "X" from a Modal Window which occupies (if not) the entire screen or most of it. I cancelled it (the "experiment") and we'l ..read more

FIXED: Some links and options may report a 500 or 403 Errors

A fair warning, the website seems to have some 500 - Internal Server Error and 403 - Forbidden errors when using the website. I'm not a PRO at Drupal so I asked the previous Technical Admin to take a look around and see IF he can spot anything abnormal. Of course I contacted the Hosting Company and the person that I chatted with was not very sympathetic at all... Some support techs are more sympathetic than others ... Most are very reasonable. But in this instance ... He could not help me further! We'll see if Matthew is able to help, I will be working this WEEK to TRY to rectify the errors as ..read more

He was more interested in ending the conversation and was the most "could-not-give-a-sh!t" type of person... We'll see if Matthew is able to help, I will be working this WEEK to TRY to rectify the errors as well. I may get better luck ..read more

Let's revive the Reviewers Section...

What are your thoughts about this? Reviving the "Reviewers Section" would be pretty simple to do... It could follow some simple moderation rules and anyone who would want to share a "Gaming Experience" can do so... Basically if you play a TableTop game (Card or Board), take notes during the experience and have sufficient material to post a short but to the point topic about the game. The usual is necessary: 1. Date 2. Game Name 3. Designer Name 4. Publisher (of your Edition) 5. Time of Play 6. Number of Players 7. Player Ages from Youngest to Oldest 8. The review itself about how much or how l ..read more

[GDS] 2017 "Party like it's 2999"
Board Game Designers Forum

It's time for the first major change to the GDS. Read up on the new, longer, format here http://www.bgdf.com/annual-game-design-showdown The gist is that the GDS will span a whole year - with the initial half using the old monthly GDS-like challenges to help you develop your game. The latter half of the year is devoted to creating and sharing the artifacts for your game to share - down to sell sheets for publishers. In January, which is now, you'll get the overarching theme. Mull it over. In February and onwards, you'll get a monthly GDS for a mechanic that you may end up incorporating into yo ..read more
