Day Zero Project: Completed No. 52
A Day Zero Project goal of P.J.’s has been completed!
Goal completed: Buy 101 microbadges on BGG in one day
Date completed: March 2, 2015
Description: This is one of those silly … “why?” additions to the list. BGG is Boardgame Geek, one of the top – if not the top – board game website out there. It’s highly in-depth, depending on how deep you want to go with it. But there are microbadges for your profile and I got a tad addicted to them. You can make “Geek Gold” in different ways and spend it on things such as microbadges. A lot of them are very cool.
Why I wanted to do it: As a bit of a microbadge collector, I wanted the badge of getting 100 microbadges in one day. As for the 101? All in the name of the Day Zero Project!
How I did it: This wasn’t random, that’s for sure. I built up some Geek Gold and then ordered some via the marketplace to have enough. During that time, I went through pages and pages of microbadges, making a list of ones I wanted because, despite loving the badges, I didn’t just want random ones. So I build up ones I liked and would want. In the end, I bought the 101 in one day and got the special one as well.
About P.J.’s Day Zero Project: Day Zero is a project where people come up with 101 things to do over 1001 days. I started the project on August 1, 2014 with an anticipated finish date of April 28, 2017. Goals will not be revealed until they are completed. A private list is at the Day Zero website and the list will be made public upon completion of the project. It’s my thoughts that if things are kept private, should I not do them, change or find a way around it, I’d only be cheating myself.
