Welcome to The Geek Weekly(TGW), a weekly roundup of interesting things happening on BoardGameGeek.com. Every day hundreds of comments and posts are made on BGG; it's impossible to keep track of it all. That's why we've created TGW as a way to highlight great content from around the Geek.

We do our best to provide a varied and diverse look at BGG each week. Found a post that you think should be featured? Shoot us a Geekmail.

Kick It To Eleven!
BoardGameGeek uses a 10 point scale for rating board games. If you have a game you like, make sure to rate it as it helps determine where games show up in the rankings. While many debate the criteria for giving a game one number or another, we all know it does not go to 11. But, if you could rate one game an 11, what would it be? Check out other users responses on this geek list.

Achievement Unlocked
Achievements have been  staple of videos games from XBOX Live to Game Center. They are often interesting ways to create a higher replay value by challenging you to play the game in a different way. This thread discuss achievements in board game mentioning some that already have them and suggesting some for games that don’t include them. What kind of achievements would you add for your favorite game?

Goooooooooal!
When I teach a game, the first question I receive is usually: What is the goal? How do I win? While I often answer snarkily “You win by getting points,” I would love to learn a more helpful response. In this geek list users are summarizing the goals to some popular games. I plan to refer to this list when introducing a new game. Have a good summary? Make sure to add it to the list.
