I was working on a Geeklist a few days ago and thought, what game would come up with my zip code? (Entering the digits in the game code space). It turns out none does, but one did with the first 4 digits (see below). The game struck me because of what the game actually was and how it would have fit in with my family. If your interested, check yours, list it, and see if there is any connection.

Here is the game. The weird thing is that my kids loved Thomas the Tank Engine. I didn't know the game existed. If I would have done this exercise 8 years ago I would have had the perfect Christmas gift. I can't help thinking that I missed my gaming destiny.

Strangely, this is the first four digits of my zip code when I was a kid. I never owned this game but I have always loved this story and my son recently played the role of Robinhood in a local play. SPOOKY

My current zip code has no game, and if I chop it at 4 digits, I get a game that doesn't mean much for me.

But I grew up in zip code 01720, which, when the leading 0 is chopped, becomes this game! Which also doesn't mean much for me, although I remember seeing it in the FLGS when I was a kid. And isn't there a bat avatar from this game running around this site somewhere?

I have to drop the first digit per living in Colorado and the second is a zero, so I am left with this game. It is very interesting since I created an add-on for the computer game Rise of Nations: Thrones and Patriots to add the Apache as a playable nation to the New World Conquer the World Campaign. [shameless plug] It is available at New World Extended [/shameless plug]. The special unit for the Apache are "Ghost Warriors" and are Geronimo's men.

Well had to go with the last 4 digits and got something called Capitol Rummy, which I guess is at least moderately appropriate given the current election hoopla.

This was the zip where I was born (Clayton NJ). It corresponds to a game about USAAF. I ended up joining the USAF. Funny how that worked out.

I have actually never heard of this game and as it has no ranking, I don't think many people have. But there is some coincidence, as the year of release (1979) is also my "release year" meaning the game and I are the same age. Nice

How bizarre... The numbers in my UK postcode gives me Nuba, a Knizia design from 1995.

Herr Knizia is one of my favourite, if not my most favourite, designers. Coincidence???

Nothing under my current zip (full or chopped) so tried my old zip where I grew up at and this game came up.

Appropriate in two ways:
1--started getting into naval gaming about 5 years ago and still dabble in it (although more into Full Thrust now which is really naval warfare in space)
2--fits in family-wise as this is what I did to get divorced--torpedeoed the ex! Made out like a bandit too.....and my son and I have a better life for it.

Tried last 4 digits of my current zip and this came up--very appropriate again for my divorce as this is whom I was emulating to get all my ducks in a row before filing;basically my ex did not have a leg to stand on when we went to court as I had all the proof to get an immediate divorce.

And who says gaming doesnt help you in real life??? ;->

I became curious what my Mom's would have been. She passed away a few years ago. She was born and lived in Fairbury Nebraska. While I have never seen this game, I am a huge Tolkien / Lord of the Rings fan.
