Update: the additions are slowing down, so I will award the grand prize Thursday night at 11pm MST. Exciting!

Tuttleboy, with 109 votes takes the most thumbs prize!





The rules are simple:

1. Post an entry to this geeklist that is loosely related to your avatar.
2. Thumb your favorite avatars in the list. Vote early and vote often.
3. After a week, whichever avatar has the most thumbs is the winner.
4. Throw this list a little thumb love. I don't need the thumbs, but I'd like it to be visible for a day or two. You can unthumb it later if it makes you feel too easy.
5. Any geek gold received goes to the winner.

What do you win?

Glory. Honor. And I will mail you something from my bag of crap(tm), a collection of white elephant gaming gifts not to exceed $3.00 in value.

Proceed.

My avatar is homage to where I grew up (the Philippines). They make the most beautiful Parols (Christmas Stars) out of bamboo, paper mache, cellophane, etc. Then they put lights in them and hang them in windows, etc. Absolutely beautiful.

Pasko is Tagalog for Christmas. Maligayang Pasko is Tagalog for Merry Christmas!

Actually from the toy, not the game. There is a warning symbol in the bionicle instructions to discourage shooting the little Zamor Spheres at people's faces.

The picture cracked my 8-year-old son up and he told me I should use it as my avatar on BGG.

I, of course, modified it to apply to boardgaming...

Good old Yogi. The inspiration for my avatar is my younger daughter. She has always been a crazed suicidal maniac but luckily it's only resulted in one emergency room visit (so far). It was during that visit (just stitches) that I got the idea. I kept telling her that her boo boo would get better. So she became Booboo and I was Yogi!

I only recently looked up this game, because...I am had an idea to design a card game about ultimate. Glad this game does not match my idea. Although I was kicking around a game in my head similar to this and decided to go in another direction. Oh and it does match my avatar. I think that guy is playing ultimate cool

My Avatar is a mix of things.

The first part is the crest of my fraternity - to which would apply to this game. It was also my first avatar.


When I decided to start buying microbadges, I thought I'd go the cheap route about proclaiming my sports allegiances. Instead of going ahead and buying microbadges for Chicago Bears football and Michigan Wolverine football, I just added those helmets to my avatar and animated it. I had already purchased the New York Yankees microbadge, but I added that to my Avatar as well.

My social skills are pathetic at best.

Sometimes my commentary sounds unwillingly rude.

I try to compensate this with my gawky looking avatar, so that people think I'm a nice guy.

My avatar is from the excellent video game Portal, from Valve. I highly recommend that you all check it out. You play a test subject in a maze that is testing out a new weapon. This weapon creates Portals that allow travel between them. It's a great puzzle game with hilarious dialogue.
