I just have to face it. My entries and comments rarely get the number of thumbs I think they deserve.

What is it? Am I not witty enough? Is my sense of humour only something that should be shared between me and myself? Am I somehow unable to transfer a personal profundity of thought into a crisp type-bite? I'll admit: the answer to all these questions is "yes."

Some little contests go on here and there offering some GeekGold for wit, humour, and insight. I don't have any of it. So here's a contest:

Create a Board Game entry on this GeekList and attach a comment to it. But this comment must be vapid, completely empty, devoid of worth and value. It must not offer any insight or relevancy to the Board Game at hand. It must not serve any purpose. It must be so limp in its putridity that what seems offensive really offends no one. It is the proverbial polar bear in the snowstorm. It is breathtaking emptiness.


What will you win? For starters you will earn 5bag GeekGold. I can't offer any more than that at this point. I don't submit enough GG-earners to garner more than that and I cannot offer that which I do not have. But I'll also share with you HALF of whatever GG this GeekList will make. Warning: be prepared for disappointment.

Most importantly, HOW do you win? Simple: Your comment must earn the LEAST number of thumbs by the end of the week (October 7th, 2012, night-time). Players tied for the least thumbs will split the winnings have the winner decided between them by myself, who will choose the comment that I felt was the most successful in communicating the least regard for intelligent thought. To counter last-second entries which only earned the least thumbs because of time and not from sheer inanity will be discounted at my ambiguous sense of discretion.

Make sure to thumb those comments that HAVE relevancy, if only even just a thread of it. That way they won't get any stinky Geek Gold for not trying their worst.

Good luck! Bad luck! Bah, whatever...

Edit: As there might be quite a few ties (Hey! Zero is a number too!) I've decided to award the booty to only one person. That way, I won't have to give .13 GG to 23 people, or whatever the math would be, which that certainly wasn't.

WINNER!

The contest officially closed at 11:59pm on Wednesday, October 3rd. I had to set a secret date of closing to ensure people wouldn't rush the GL at the last minute hoping to get the least thumbs. It also takes into account that the people who posted within the first three days most likely would get more thumbs due to exposure and yet, there was one clear winner who was able to starve off the thumbing even though they submitted their entry relatively early.

Congratulations to!:

Jake dumbfounded us with his comment (#174) on Yahtzee: "Gort! Bolinga..."
Though TrentonTon tried his best to prove relevancy by stating these fake words were akin to the fake fun times people have when playing Yahtzee, it was not to be. Jake only racked up an amazing 9 thumbs (while surrounding entries were still getting into the high teens and 20s.) Very impressive! Your idiocy has shocked us all and may these few tuppence of GG put you in the right direction. Jake is taking away a staggering 20.65 - much more than I thought the winner would ever get.

An edit from Jake:

Quote:
Cleaning out my files and still had GL from the contest in October. My answer was referred to as 'fake words'. True, they are the last two words spoken by the alien in the original "The Day the World Stood Still". The three other words he tells the women to speak to Gort are the famous ones (Klatu. Barrada. Nikto.) but not the last ones he speaks. Just FYI in case you did not already know that. Thanks again!!! JWA

whose ability to bring a unified relevance to cats, watermelon and King of Tokyo by posting a delightful cat picture garnered an impressive number of thumbs. You go, girl!

Thanks to all who kept me thoroughly chuckling this whole week. Your involvement with this GeekList has been impressive. Thanks especially to those who continued to submit after the contest was long over; although, you didn't know the contest was over, but I still think you would have continued to submit regardless. Am I right?

THANKS AGAIN!

Why do we only call Your name when there’s no one else to call?
And we only really seek You when our mighty towers fall
Why do we say You’ve failed us and You’ve turned Your eyes away
When we’re only sleeping in the bed we made?

Why do we call for free will, but reject all consequence?
Why’s the path we’ve made to Heaven stained with the blood of innocence?
Why’d we ignore the warnings that we’ve read and always known
And get angry when we reap the things we’ve sown?

So we blame You
‘Cause our world’s not come out right
While the devil’s masquerading
As an angel of the light
Just imagine
All the pride and all the nerve
To ask where You’ve been, when we’re the ones we serve

It’s not a mystery, it’s been foretold
But we ignored the warning bell so long ago
There’s a way that seems right unto men, but we’ll die with the wages of sin

As the world lies bleeding
The giant is no longer sleeping
Poisoned harvest reaping
Blindly we just carry on, but the glory is gone
Gone

We live our lives like we could care less what You have to say
Then curse the skies when You don’t come clean up the ugly mess we’ve made
But You gave us a choice and we made it and dug ourselves into a hole
We always thought we knew the way despite the things You said
We just ignored the pile of bodies and the bloodstains on the bed
Painting ourselves right into a corner as life spiraled out of control

As the world lies bleeding
The giant is no longer sleeping
All we’ve sown now reaping
Blindly we just carry on, but the glory is gone

See us – Our promised land of milk and honey
Became a land of filth and money
Like Babylon and Rome before
A land of greed and sin and guilt, a stained and scarlet whore
See us – Living in our ivory towers
Self-appointed kings with no power
Built a monument to man
We’re passing down empty decrees like a disease across the land

This is the system we’ve created
This is the world so devastated
This is what it looks like when mankind asks You to just leave us alone
This is the monster now awakened
This is our legacy creation
This is the place we end up when we say that we can do this on our own

This is our masterpiece: corruption
This is our monument: destruction
Game point of life and death, the nadir of existence painted black
This is the road to Hell we’ve wandered
This is inheritance we’ve squandered
So raise a glass to all we’ve lost and wonder if we’ll ever get it back

Nations calling “Our will be done, mankind answers to no one”
But now it has begun – In death, our sin hath borne a son

Please forgive us for we’ve only made it worse
Even after You had warned us
Sin would only bring a curse
Guess we knew better so we went a different way
Now we’re only sleeping in the bed we made

All the glory and the power left this place
When we turned our backs upon You
And chose to live in our disgrace
But You warned us
And You let us have our way
Now we’re only drowning in the mess we made

Blood on our hands
Blood on our hands
Blood on our hands
Blood on our hands

My friend Will was studying Animal Psychology in college, and actually confirmed the hamster line from these lyrics:

The monkeys stand for honesty,
Giraffes are insincere,
And the elephants are kindly but
They're dumb.
Orangutans are skeptical
Of changes in their cages,
And the zookeeper is very fond of rum.

Zebras are reactionaries,
Antelopes are missionaries,
Pigeons plot in secrecy,
And hamsters turn on frequently.

This children's matching game seems unusually complex. Adults may have a difficult time explaining the 30+ pages of rules to a young child, but to be fair the rules are very tight. And a typical 3-year old may have a difficult time avoiding confusion between, say, an FW.190A vs. an FW.190D (as opposed to the obvious differences between the Bf109G and Bf109K, that any youngster properly brought up should recognize).

Nevertheless, it is an excellent opportunity to educate the young ones in colors, shapes and national symbols, and begin the important process of understanding such concepts as energy management, which will serve them greatly later in life. BGG score = 8.
