The rules are simple.

Item 1 will describe a characteristic of a game. If you know a game that matches that description, post it as Item 2 - with a clue to the game/set of games that will eventually be Item 3.

etc etc etc.

So for instance if Item 1 said "A game with Hedgehogs in it"

Item 2 could be Igel Aergern or Frank's Zoo or some other Hedgehoggy game. And it might have the clue "A game with a circular board" etc etc etc.

There is no real end or reward. If someone wants to design a Microbadge, I will award it to anyone who submits the right game.

Ties will be broken strictly by numbered position in the Geeklist. Well, and by correctness of answer (but this will be clear, I am sure).

Enjoy!

(I looked for a game about "The Cat Next Door", but couldn't find one; this'll have to do.)

In rugby you can get away with pretty much injuring anyone. I've seen some of my friends come back from practice with awful bruises and black eyes!

How about... a game with a box slightly bigger than a ring box.

I think the sheep in Shear Panic are about the size (footprint or volume wise) as the previous game.

Next, a game with a number of players that skips numbers. For instance, 2 or 4, but not 3.
