BoardGameGeek History

BaSL created 2 GeekLists chronicling much of the history of BGG: The History of BoardGameGeek: 2000-2003 & The History of BoardGameGeek: 2004-2006.

A series of forumposts is created for BGG's History from 2004-2009:

The History of BoardGameGeek Part I: 2004
The History of BoardGameGeek Part II: 2005
The History of BoardGameGeek Part III: 2006
The History of BoardGameGeek Part IV: 2007

Scott Alden also talks about the history of BGG in an interview with Tom Vasel (Interviews by an Optimist # 32 - Scott Alden).

In 2017, following another Alden interview with Paul Grogan, this geeklist was written: A brief history of BGG.
