EXCERPT. How would you like to get purchase rebates from us while supporting something you are passionate in? Piqued? Then don’t miss our BGG Patron Prom. We started this promo in 2018, resumed it in 2020 and now we are back with 2021’s promo! Continue reading for the deets.
Back in Dec 2018, we first ran a Boardgamegeek Patron promo. It was pretty well received and we’d planned to do it yearly. Alas 2019 overwhelmed us a bit and we kinda dropped this ball. We are glad we resumed that in 2020 (thanks to all who took part), and now we are back with 2021’s edition!
TLDR first (same same as last year)
What is it? Get rebate coupons (RM50 and above) by supporting Boardgamegeek as a Patron
When is the promo? Campaign period runs from today till 15 Jan 2022.
I think most if not all of you would have heard of BOARDGAMEGEEK and find them useful. Boardgamegeek is committed to remain as a free resource yet they also have expenses that need to be covered. And that’s where the Boardgamegeek Patron contributions comes in. From as low as USD15 (one-time) you can do your part and contribute to the Boardgamegeek Patron support.

I would love to see more of our Malaysian boardgamers chipping in their support, and since this is the period when Boardgamegeek traditionally run their End-of-Year Geek Patronage drive, I thought this is a good opportunity for Boardgamecafe.net to provide some incentive for your kind patronage.

Frequently Asked Questions
- I’ve already contributed to Boardgamegeek in 2021 (before I saw this post), do I still qualify for this promo?
- I’ve not yet contributed to Boardgamegeek before but I would like to start now. Can I get both RM50 and RM20 rebate coupons?
ANSWER: If you are contributing to Boardgamegeek for the first time this year, then you will only receive one RM50 rebate coupon. Next year however, you’ll be getting additional RM20 rebate coupon (for each additional year of patronage).
- I’m going to contribute USD100 to Boardgamegeek for this year. How many times can I use the RM50 rebate coupon?
ANSWER: Firstly let me thank you for your generosity. Our rebate coupon (RM50/RM20) is one-time use regardless of the amount you contribute as Patron (min USD15). I’m sure you are contributing to help out Boardgamegeek with their expenses upkeep and not solely for our promo. tsk tsk.
- Are the Rebate Coupons transferable to another person?
ANSWER: No, each rebate coupon is tied to your BGC Webstore Account (as they’ll earn you BGC Marks when you use them). However nothing stops you from using them to buy games on your friend’s behalf. 😛
- For the previous years of patronage, how many RM20 rebate coupons would I get? As many times as I’ve supported Boardgamegeek in the past years?
- Really? Do you mean if I’ve been supporting Boardgamegeek since 2006 without fail, I’ll be be getting fifteen (15) RM20 rebate coupons for a total RM300 rebate??!!
ANSWER: Yes. If you indeed have been supporting Boardgamegeek since 2006 without fail – and have a microbadge to show in your Geek Profile from 2006-2020 you will receive fifteen RM20 rebate coupons from us.
- Wait. Does such a person even exist?
ANSWER: Haha.. have some faith la my fellow Padawans. Let yours truly lead by example. Ever since I started getting actively involved in the boardgame community and business in Malaysia, I’ve been supporting Boardgamegeek as a Patron since 2006.
- Can the rebate coupon be applied to recent new arrivals?
ANSWER: Yes and you have until end February to make use of them. If you wish to see the list of new arrivals, you can browse our New Arrivals listing on the webstore.
- What about items not yet in stock, on backorder or preorder?
ANSWER: Unfortunately the rebate coupon can only be applied to current in-stock items. But you have until end of February to use the rebate coupons so perhaps by then your item may have arrived and in-stock.
