Aldie just created a popular thread about 20,000 new users. There is also the GOTW thread. Finally there is the thread about the pictures of people. Those three have got me thinking about creating this geeklist. Find out what number you registered at. Add the game with the same id and tell us a little about yourself.

I think I remember posting something before about how game number 3924 represents me. I guess I have a bit of a Smart Mouth attitude...

I am number 16395 which, as it turns out, is Travel Blokus. This seems to fit me well actually (despite never playing the game and having no interest to do so..) because I love to travel!

I'm #1067. There doesn't seem to be a game with that number (unless I am doing something wrong) so I took the game that is 1067th in the current rankings...

I have never played it!

Before finding the geek I played Magic and D&D and a few other RPGs and card games along those lines but didn't really play a lot of board games. Through BGG I managed to find Tikal, Settlers and a bunch of other games that were so different from what I was used to that I was immediately hooked. 7 years later I own well over 120 games that take up 2 large shelves and board gaming has easily become my biggest hobby. I've run my own board game club for teens at the local library, play regularly at local meet-ups and have introduced many, many friends to the world of gaming all because of this site.

Board games are such a huge part of who I am now that it's hard to imagine a time when I didn't have friends over regularly to play Cosmic Encounter, Power Grid, or whatever hot new game just showed up in my FLGS that week. I often wonder what I would be doing with all my spare time if I had never found the geek!

Marty! Marty!

We've got to go back!

I'm only user 76396, and in 2010, that game hasn't been created yet!

I'm not one of the 20,000... I'm one of the 80,000

We need more games! With Carcassone, Catan, and the Fluxx Capacitor Expansion generator, we'll have 77,000 games in the database in no time!

(and I really wanna go take the truck down by the lake to go camping )

I haven't played Quest for Power, but that geek rating of 3.33 is very impressive.

When we first started the site there wasn't really a need to have a user account if you didn't write session reports or reviews (I didn't). Our forums were set up on 2 different systems over the beginning years, but since they didn't have any kind of integration they never really gained traction. I think we used wwwthreads, and the precursor to phpBB, but I can't remember the name of it.

Anyway - when we got the proper forums installed, I finally registered a username.
