Please note: I have started a subscription thread here: http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/305311

In this list, please answer all of the following questions in a single geeklist entry:

1) What type or genre of game is underrepresented in your collection?
2) Name the last 5 games that you played.
3) When was the last time you played Agricola?
4) If given the chance, which of the 2009 nominees for the Spiel des Jahres would you play today?
5) If given the chance, which of the 2009 nominees for the Kinsderspiel des Jahres would you play today?
6) Do you use a tablecloth while playing games?
7) Describe your ideal game solely in terms of the game length, complexity, and number of players.
8) Have you attended or to you plan to attend a convention in 2009? If so, which one(s)?

Hey, get your stinking cursor off my face! I got nukes, you know.
mbmbmbmbmb
Showing A Most Dangerous Time: Japan in Chaos, 1570-1584 because it is the most recent game I bought, received this month after pre-ordering. Looks tasty.

1) What type or genre of game is underrepresented in your collection?
As others have noted, I don't own games I don't think I'd want... Very few euros, even fewer abstracts. Of games I think I might actually LIKE, then I'd say my collection is lacking block wargames - zero.

2) Name the last 5 games that you played. Let's see. In no particular order, Unhappy King Charles! , The Great War in Europe: Deluxe Edition, Pax Britannica, World in Flames, and Pandemic. (Yes, I will play euros - I like Pandemic.)

3) When was the last time you played Agricola?

Never played it. Never even SEEN it. One of our group plans to bring it next Monday. But I think I'll end up playing Empires of the Middle Ages instead!

4) If given the chance, which of the 2009 nominees for the Spiel des Jahres would you play today?


I'm sorry, I don't speak German.

5) If given the chance, which of the 2009 nominees for the Kinsderspiel des Jahres would you play today?

I'm sorry, I don't speak German.

6) Do you use a tablecloth while playing games?

Only if it was already on the table.

7) Describe your ideal game solely in terms of the game length, complexity, and number of players.

Well obviously "ideal" will vary by time and other circumstances. But hey, let's say 7-player game, quite complex, very long, lots of room for diplomatic maneuvering and battle and trashtalking... something like Empires in Arms fits the bill, or WIF (less diplomacy).

8) Have you attended or to you plan to attend a convention in 2009? If so, which one(s)?

I hung out a bit at CanCon in January, no other plans this year.

9) Do you have any gaming superstitions?

No. Logically, I know that talking to the dice, praying to the deck of cards, touching a lucky icon, etc make zero difference. Although I have been known to change dice after a series of crap rolls.

10) Name your favorite chocolate candy bar.

Terry's Chocolate Orange. Sheer delight.

mbmbmbmbmb
1) Eruos are under-represented. If I can count Ice Flow as one, I think I have one. If the two Ragnar Brothers' games count too then I have three.
2) In order, the last games I played were: Ambagibus, Vs., Dungeoneer, uh... Plague and Pestilence, and oh, Roma.
3) Not never. You won't find cool little fish in the mainstream.
4) I'd have to go look at that geeklist...I'll try Finca once...
5) Ditto...I have a soft spot for nautical games, so... Tonga Island.
6) Only for the two Ragnar games that I have that come on tablecloths, Viking Fury and Kings and Castles
7) Ideal game is 45 minutes of medium complexity for 1 person. Numerous wargames fit that bill.
8) Nope and nope.
9) Not that come to mind.
10) Gabriola Island Chocolates' garlic and ginger truffle dark chocolate bar.

1) What type or genre of game is underrepresented in your collection?
Wargames. I'm not very fond of games where you're supposed to kill each other. Down in Flames: Aces High shown here is the exception together with two kinds of RISK.
Quote:
2) Name the last 5 games that you played.

1)1825 Unit 1& 1825 Unit 2 combined, 2)Pandemic, 3)Fairy Tale 4)Keltis with the expansion Keltis: Neue Wege, Neue Ziele, 5)Wasabi!
Quote:
3) When was the last time you played Agricola?
New Years Eve.
Quote:
4) If given the chance, which of the 2009 nominees for the Spiel des Jahres would you play today?
Finca.
Dominion & Pandemic I've already played, FITS I don't understand why I shouldn't play Blokus instead, and while Fauna seems to be a nice game, I think that one may be very targeted at children between 8 & 12, and I'm not.
Quote:
5) If given the chance, which of the 2009 nominees for the Kinsderspiel des Jahres would you play today?
Zoowaboo. Why not.
Quote:
6) Do you use a tablecloth while playing games?
Most of the time, no.
Quote:
7) Describe your ideal game solely in terms of the game length, complexity, and number of players.
My preference is medium heavy games, played in 1-2h with 4-6 players. Sadly I have very few opportunities to play that kind of games these days.
Quote:
8) Have you attended or to you plan to attend a convention in 2009? If so, which one(s)?
No. But one of these days I'll make it to Essen.

31. Board Game: Eat Poop You Cat [Average Rating:7.51 Overall Rank:410]
T. Nomad

mbmbmbmbmb
1) What type or genre of game is underrepresented in your collection?
Wargames. There are lots of other genres of which I don't have (m)any, but wargames are the only type I want, so they're the underrepresented ones.

2) Name the last 5 games that you played.
Clans
Eat Poop You Cat
Fictionary
1000 Blank White Cards
10 Days in Asia

3) When was the last time you played Agricola?
Last Remembrance Day. Being in New Zealand, the date must have slipped my mind. Had I realised I'd never have played.

4) If given the chance, which of the 2009 nominees for the Spiel des Jahres would you play today?
None of them, really.
Pandemic didn't move me at all. I've yet to see anyone actually enjoy a game of Dominion. Finca just looks like Stone Age, and Fauna, though about animals and their habitats, is still a trivia game. If I had to pick one, I suppose FITS wins out in the year of the F, though see the next question to see just how lukewarm I am about this bunch.


5) If given the chance, which of the 2009 nominees for the Kinsderspiel des Jahres would you play today?
I'd rather play The Magic Labyrinth, with its invisible walls, than any of the SdJ nominees.


6) Do you use a tablecloth while playing games?
No, but I don't use a table, either.

7) Describe your ideal game solely in terms of the game length, complexity, and number of players.
Depends on the day. It might be 2P, deep, 5 hours; or it might be 6P, light as a feather, and 15 minutes.

8) Have you attended or to you plan to attend a convention in 2009? If so, which one(s)?
The mountain will have to come to Mohammed: our travel budget is blown.

9) Do you have any gaming superstitions?
I sleeve my cards pretty religiously.

10) Name your favorite chocolate candy bar.
Dark: Chuao Chinita Nibs
Milk: Newtree Cocoon Melk Chocolade Cannelle Met Taugé
Those are my current commercial faves. I've had some spectacular handmade chili-and-chocolate bars in Peru, though.

1) What type or genre of game is underrepresented in your collection?
Party games is probably least represented and will likely stay that way. Wargames are likely next, though that segment is slowly increasing.
2) Name the last 5 games that you played.
Noah's Ark Matching, Steam over Holland, Keltis, FITS, and Warrior Knights.
3) When was the last time you played Agricola?
October 25, 2008. That is primarily because of difficulty getting other people to play it.
4) If given the chance, which of the 2009 nominees for the Spiel des Jahres would you play today?
I would happily play Dominion, FITS, or Pandemic. I don't really know anything about the other two other than that I couldn't play Fauna at BGG.con because it lacked a translation.
5) If given the chance, which of the 2009 nominees for the Kinsderspiel des Jahres would you play today?
I don't know enough about any of them to really guess. The Magic Labyrinth sounds kind of interesting.
6) Do you use a tablecloth while playing games?
Not usually.
7) Describe your ideal game solely in terms of the game length, complexity, and number of players.
My ideal game would have to scale well to at least six players, would have options for variable play length from between one to six hours, would be a rail game, and would be of medium to medium-heavy complexity.
8) Have you attended or to you plan to attend a convention in 2009? If so, which one(s)?
I expect to make it to BGG.con again this year.
9) Do you have any gaming superstitions?
Not really.
10) Name your favorite chocolate candy bar
That's a close one between Butterfinger and Baby Ruth. Of course there are few I would refuse and lots of fancy ones that I may objectively prefer but don't usually find very easily.

Race for the Galaxy, ZooSim, Blue Moon City, Dominion, Eurorails

3) When was the last time you played Agricola?

Just over a week ago (twice in that weekend)

5) If given the chance, which of the 2009 nominees for the Kinsderspiel des Jahres would you play today?

Any of them - I've not tried any of them yet.

6) Do you use a tablecloth while playing games?

Only when playing on our fold-up table or outside, as those two tables have slats, so we lose game-pieces if we don't.

7) Describe your ideal game solely in terms of the game length, complexity, and number of players.

Scales well from 2-5 players, takes just under an hour to play without too much downtime, but yet has a reasonable amount of strategy.

8) Have you attended or to you plan to attend a convention in 2009? If so, which one(s)?

Not in 2009 - now we have kids we've had to drop off the convention circuit.

9) Do you have any gaming superstitions?

Nope.

6) Do you use a tablecloth while playing games? No

7) Describe your ideal game solely in terms of the game length, complexity, and number of players.
About an hour; moderate difficulty (challenging but not confusing); 2-3 players

10) Name your favorite chocolate candy bar Almost any of the "forbidden fruits"--candy bars that I can't, in good conscience, keep in our household because of my son's peanut allergy. That includes even candy that doesn't have peanuts, but may contain traces of nuts because of where it was produced. Some examples of these guilty pleasures: Nestle Crunch, Milky Way, Three Musketeers, Butterfingers, Snickers, Hershey's with Almonds--I can't pick just one!

"Desire makes everything blossom; possession makes everything wither and fade." (Marcel Proust)
mbmbmbmbmb
1) What type or genre of game is underrepresented in your collection?

Silly, just-for-fun games (like the one pictured at left) that can bring out the kid in even a crotchety old guy like me. I've long preferred games that seem serious or sophisticated--traditional games, complex wargames, and so forth.

2) Name the last 5 games that you played.

Battle Cry
A House Divided
Cribbage
Gin Rummy
Can't Stop

3) When was the last time you played Agricola?

Never have.

4) If given the chance, which of the 2009 nominees for the Spiel des Jahres would you play today?

Dominion

5) If given the chance, which of the 2009 nominees for the Kinsderspiel des Jahres would you play today?

Tonga Island

6) Do you use a tablecloth while playing games?

Sometimes, not often.

7) Describe your ideal game solely in terms of the game length, complexity, and number of players.

Under an hour; simple but deep; scalable from 1 to 6 players (maybe ideal for 1 or 2).

8) Have you attended or to you plan to attend a convention in 2009? If so, which one(s)?

No. Don't expect to ever.

9) Do you have any gaming superstitions?

Somehow it seems almost like cheating to call a number aloud (or even think about a number too hard) when rolling dice. A part of me always worries that there's some kind of psychokinetic influence going on--even though, if there is, it backfires on me as often as not.

10) Name your favorite chocolate candy bar.

Lindt white chocolate. (I've never been much of a chocolate fan. When I do indulge, it's usually white chocolate. Best complemented with straight or watered-down espresso.)

I enjoy Pandemic quite a bit. Dominion does nothing for me.

2-6 player, some luck, 1-2 hours, not too cutthroat, not a card game.

1) What type or genre of game is underrepresented in your collection?
I don't have any Word games in my collection. Not even Scrabble. I really don't like word games.

2) Name the last 5 games that you played.
In reverse order: Family Business & Wildlife with 6 players, R-Eco & Acquire with 3 players, Axiom with 2 players.

3) When was the last time you played Agricola?
A little more than a month ago.

4) If given the chance, which of the 2009 nominees for the Spiel des Jahres would you play today?
Pandemic or Dominion. Pandemic: To find out if I like it enough to become part of my collection, or that it's just nice enough to have played once or twice. Dominion to find out if I'm right to think that's it's basically not as good as the hype tells you.

5) If given the chance, which of the 2009 nominees for the Kinsderspiel des Jahres would you play today?
Quite a lot of them! Zoowaboo sounds like a fun & original game: part gambling a la Diamant, part dexterity, part coop. Hang in There looks like fun too. Polizei-Alarm sounds like fun with drunk adults too.

6) Do you use a tablecloth while playing games?
Never

7) Describe your ideal game solely in terms of the game length, complexity, and number of players.
Gamelength: more than 90 minutes, reasonably complex (I like Wallace & Chvatil games) and scaling beautifully from 2 to 6 players. And most importantly: being fun to play.

8) Have you attended or to you plan to attend a convention in 2009? If so, which one(s)?
I usually attend a couple of the Dutch Ducosim fairs (3 monthly), and probably Spiel @ Essen.

9) Do you have any gaming superstitions?
Not that I'm aware of.

10) Name your favorite chocolate candy bar.
That 'll probably be the purple Balisto. Snickers/KitKat/Nuts will do fine as well.

I'd probably play any of them, but I enjoy Pandemic and Dominion.

1) What type or genre of game is underrepresented in your collection?
I don't have any Wargames, but on the otherhand, I don't really like wargames. So, is that really under represented? I don't know.

2) Name the last 5 games that you played.
Starting with most recent.
Citadels
Ticket to Ride
Alhambra
Small World
Lord of the Rings

3) When was the last time you played Agricola?
April 26th, 2009. I played the last three games of a eight game solo series using Agricola: Through the Seasons. Score of the final game, 91 points.

4) If given the chance, which of the 2009 nominees for the Spiel des Jahres would you play today?
Dominion will have to be my choice here. I own Pandemic and love it, but I haven't had a chance to try Dominion yet, and I would like to.

5) If given the chance, which of the 2009 nominees for the Kinsderspiel des Jahres would you play today?
The Magic Labyrinth sounds interesting to me.

6) Do you use a tablecloth while playing games?
No.

7) Describe your ideal game solely in terms of the game length, complexity, and number of players.
To meet my personal needs, an ideal game takes just under 2 hours to play OR just under 2 hours to play TWICE.
It should be complex enough that people who are mathematically inclined and have a genius or near genius IQ have to work at it a little to remember everything.
It should be PLAYABLE with 2-5 or 6 players, but BEST with 4. Also Solo playability is a plus, but not necessary.
As Woelf said above, RoboRally is a good yardstick for the kind of thing I like.

8) Have you attended or to you plan to attend a convention in 2009? If so, which one(s)?
I have not attended any cons this year. I'd really like to, but it doesn't look like it's happening this year. Which kinda sucks, since we have two free tickets for Origins.

9) Do you have any gaming superstitions?
Not superstitions, per say. Paranoias... I have those. Never leave your cards on the table when you go to the bathroom. When you come back, "Nobody touched them," yet somehow they're in a different order... whistle

10) Name your favorite chocolate candy bar.
Butterfinger Crisp, or, if you're willing to bend the definition of Candy Bar, Pocky. I will tear a case of pocky up in nothing flat.

mbmbmbmbmb
1) What type or genre of game is underrepresented in your collection?
Party games. Just Pass the Pigs and Fluxx.
2) Name the last 5 games that you played.
Pandemic, Stone Age and Dominion (on BSW. Saves the cards from wearing out), Settlers of Catan Card Game, and Arkham Horror with lots of expansions. (Descent: Road to Legend just missed out 'cause some players were ill)
3) When was the last time you played Agricola?
I'd love to try it, but it's a bit expensive to buy (in Oz) without trying first. Maybe when the exchange rate improves.
4) If given the chance, which of the 2009 nominees for the Spiel des Jahres would you play today?
Ah! New Games! I'd love to play any I haven't tried yet. So I guess: Finca, Fits and Fauna in that order (Not really sure about Fauna)
5) If given the chance, which of the 2009 nominees for the Kinsderspiel des Jahres would you play today?
I'd go for "Duck Duck Go". What? It's not on the list? Who says?
6) Do you use a tablecloth while playing games?
I usually use an old bedspread which provides good support for components but is soft and easy to pickup cards from. Sometimes for two player games I use a rectangle of green snooker table baize. I used to carry it everywhere for playing M:tG.
7) Describe your ideal game solely in terms of the game length, complexity, and number of players.
2 to 2.5 hours (or half that so I can play 2 games). Medium complexity for games with my family; say, typical FFG (Arkham/BSG/TI3) complexity, but not Magic Realm complexity, for playing with my gaming group. 2-5 players for playing with my family, or 6 players for my gaming group (we only get to play 4/5 player games when someone can't make it).
8) Have you attended or to you plan to attend a convention in 2009? If so, which one(s)?
Missed Cancon. What other cons are there in Oz? US/Euro cons will have to wait until I retire.
9) Do you have any gaming superstitions?
Any night, one player's dice will be jinxed. If you're playing a co-op game, work out who it is and make sure they never have to roll for anything critical.
10) Name your favorite chocolate candy bar.
Any Lindt (or Swiss chocolate)

1) What type or genre of game is underrepresented in your collection?
All of them! Some more Ameritrash would help me mix things up, though. Plunder is lonely. Or good party games... I'm a little lacking there, too.

2) Name the last 5 games that you played.
Agricola, San Juan, Pandemic, Catch Phrase, Pit

3) When was the last time you played Agricola?
Last night (May 25)

4) If given the chance, which of the 2009 nominees for the Spiel des Jahres would you play today?
Dominion, if I could find someone to play with. I've read a ton about it, but haven't yet had a chance to give it a try.

5) If given the chance, which of the 2009 nominees for the Kinsderspiel des Jahres would you play today?
There's not much info on some of the games (at least in English!) so it's hard to get a feel for them. From what I can tell, I think I'm feeling like Curli Kuller tonight.

6) Do you use a tablecloth while playing games?
Nope. Heck, I'm lucky if I use a table.

7) Describe your ideal game solely in terms of the game length, complexity, and number of players.
Practically, this varies with my mood and who I'm playing with. Given my way, though, I'd probably pick a moderately complex game with 3-5 people lasting a couple of hours. Agricola, Tigris and Euphrates, and something I haven't played yet would top my list.

8) Have you attended or to you plan to attend a convention in 2009? If so, which one(s)?
I'm not likely to attend any conventions. BGG.con would be fun, but I'm really pretty satisfied when I can make it to my local gaming group.

9) Do you have any gaming superstitions?
None that I can think of.

10) Name your favorite chocolate candy bar.
My favorite requires context: a good piece of dark chocolate shared with my wife over a glass of wine. But Twix bars are good, too.

3) When was the last time you played Agricola?

Finca.

5) If given the chance, which of the 2009 nominees for the Kinsderspiel des Jahres would you play today?

6) Do you use a tablecloth while playing games?
Nah, I've got a separate table for gaming and it's always kept clean.

7) Describe your ideal game solely in terms of the game length, complexity, and number of players.
It's 2 to 4 players and plays very good with 2. It is neither too heavy, nor too simple - strongly mediocre heaviness, I'd say. And the length is between an hour and an hour and a half, not depending on number of players.

8) Have you attended or to you plan to attend a convention in 2009? If so, which one(s)?
I was going to go to Essen, but due to my wedding in July, I think I'll have to postpone this trip.

9) Do you have any gaming superstitions?
Always play with yellow, if you can call this a superstition.

10) Name your favorite chocolate candy bar.
Twix is my life-long favourite

2) Name the last 5 games that you played.

Last Night on Earth, Bohnanza, Stone Age, Poker and Galaxy Trucker (BB expansion).

3) When was the last time you played Agricola?

Nicht zu fassen on the strength of the Cover.

6) Do you use a tablecloth while playing games?

7) Describe your ideal game solely in terms of the game length, complexity, and number of players.

2-4 Players
45-90 minutes
Light to Medium Euro or Ameritrash game

These games are easy to play, can be taught easily, meaning they are more likely to get played and they allow 3-5 games of this type to be played in a session.

I'm organising BorderCon 2009, which is only a week away. Yiippppeeee!

9) Do you have any gaming superstitions?

10) Name your favorite chocolate candy bar.

Flake. Made by Cadbury here in Oz. Nice lightweight chocolate that melts in your mouth.
