As is evidenced by the response to this thread and this geeklist the life of Jack Vasel has touched hundreds of hearts here on BGG. And, although that geeklist gives us an opportunity to offer assistance with our wallets, I just felt like there was more I could do to recognize the life of Baby Jack. As I'm sure is the case for most of the rest of you, I will be unable to pay my respects in person at the funeral Saturday.

So, I had a thought to make a memorial BGG-style. My goal is to create a way of honoring this life that we all cared about so much for the past 2 months. Here's my idea:

On Saturday, January 29th, around 2pm EST (when Jack Vasel's funeral will be) I encourage you to play a game with your kid(s). Every moment with them is precious, so grab hold of this particular moment and share your hobby with them. If you are like me and have no children (or for some reason your kids can't play) just play the closest thing you have to a kids game with someone else. If 2pm EST translates to a really strange hour for you, then feel free to adjust to some other time. The point isn't the actual timing of the game, it is the thought behind it.

EDIT: Note that it's never too late to play a game in memory of Jack. If you missed this list on Saturday, or haven't had an opportunity to game yet, feel free to add an entry later. Again, it's all about the thought, not the timeline.

On this geeklist simply post the game that you will try to play, and who you will play it with. Perhaps even throw in a kind word for the Vasel family when you post your entry. And, if you're so inclined, maybe you could have a little prayer or moment of silence prior to your game session.

First of all, thank you to the OP for this wonderful suggestion.

Zingo has been my 4 year-old's favorite lately. She likes to put the pieces in the holder upside down and laughs when I get "mad" after she takes a piece that I need.

Tom, your family is in my thoughts. You've shown me that the family and friends you game with are far more important than whatever game you happen to be playing.

My son is 5. I picked up this race game at Essen because the game has a "doo doo" piece, and "doo doo" on the dice. To a 5 year old, this is the funniest game in the universe "... have a doo doo dad ..."

I love playing games with my son ... and I feel for Tom as he will never share that experience with Jack. Our thoughts and prayers are will the Vasel family at this time.

My son and I will play Obstgarten together on Saturday in memory of Jack. Reading the posts from Tom about Jack's progress and his passing really has affected me more strongly than I expected. BGG is my first participation in an online community. I'd avoided them in the past as being cold and impersonal filled with annoymous rude behavior but BGG is obviously a different place where you can see every day the good that is in people (The helpful attitude and the generous spirit of giving especially).

Thank you Tom for sharing both your love of games with us and for sharing your love of your son here too.

This is the favorite of our 3-year old who lives with us. We play it several times each week, and will make a special point of playing on Saturday.

We have a family 5-year old in the hospital for her 3rd week in serious condition (undiagnosed), and this very, very much hits home at this time. She is no longer able to play any games. It is such a helpless feeling and frightening. Our empathy and sorrow for Tom & his family, especially at this time, is deeply felt.

I have been dwelling heavily on Tom's loss and our family's heart goes out to him & his family.

My 7yo son says he hates playing games, and yet he's created his own rules to Roll Through the Ages. We roll the dice as many times as we want until we get all food/goods. The first player to get all pegs to the right-most holes wins.

We will be at a wedding at 2:00, but we'll try to play this version of RTtA in the evening.

To the Vasel family: Be strong; God is with you, always.

My daughter Claire is 14 months, so board-gaming isn't her thing quite yet. But she loves Peek-a-Boo (yep, it's an RPG on the Geek!), so we'll get in a few "games" of that on Saturday.

Personally, I'm relatively new to the hobby - just a couple of years of real boardgaming - and Tom's reviews have been incredibly helpful to me . Thanks, Tom, for everything you have put into this hobby - you have enriched many lives (in this and, I'm sure, many other ways).

To Tom and Laura,

Jack's story has touched our family for these past two months. As parents of a preemie ourselves your family's struggle really hit close to home, and we were pulling very hard for little Jack. Unfortunately he only graced us for two months, but his memory will stay with me and many others much longer, and your family's strength has enriched us.

All the best for you and your family,
Steve, Kristie, and Claire

One day when he is old enough to understand the story of little Jack and his loving family, I will share it with him. I will do my best to answer all of his questions.

Thank you Blott for this GeekList Memorial.

Thank you Tom and girls for all you have done for this great family oriented hobby. Peace.

Three months ago, I spent some time with my brothers 3 kids (aged 9, 6 and 4). They loved playing games on our iPhone and iPod Touch. But they were each in their own worlds while playing...distant and detached. Christmas was coming up and I wanted to inject some shared group fun and social interaction.

Board games seemed the answer, but I had rarely played them. My past experience was limited to games that were either long and drawn out, eliminated players or had players doing little more than twiddling their thumbs while awaiting their next turn. Some games seemed to combine all those characteristics in one box of misery gulp

So I set out on a Google quest to find better games and discovered Tom Vasel's video reviews. They were great. Honest, informative and entertaining (little Melody eating game bits!). I must have watched a hundred of them over the next couple of months. He also led me to this fantastic site with it's wealth of gaming information.

When Christmas arrived, there was a huge box from BoardsandBits.com under the tree for the kids. In addition, I gifted everyone I know with games of the non-video variety. The gifts were a hit with everyone. Now, when I visit my brother, instead of asking for my iPod, the kids ask if I'll play board games with them! Tom has changed my family for the better.

I can't imagine what Tom, Laura and the girls are going through right now. There are no words to express how sorry I am for their loss. But Jack's short life has deeply touched many people. I hope they can gain some small comfort in that.

My nieces and nephew will be at their Mom's house this Saturday. But we will play in Jack Vasel's memory next time we get together.

I got this for my (then) 3 year old this Christmas. I had heard Tom talk about it on the show once and wrote it down.

It took a few plays but my son, DJ had actually started to get some strategy to the game. A great kids game for sure. (simplifies down to candyland meets Indy driving with dice)

I know chess doesn't get a lot of love these days, but when I was 6 and my friends were playing chutes and ladders, my dad started teaching me chess. Last month my son asked me to start teaching him, and we've begun the process anew. He's also 6. Sharing those games with my father are still some of my happiest memories, and they began my boardgaming career.

I have to work until 10 pm EST Saturday, but my son and I will sit down and play this again in honor of Jack and Tom after I get home. I feel honored to have been able to share in Jack's life here in this community. My thoughts and those of my family are with you, Jack, and your family.

We will be in Austin, TX hanging out with family and friends and we will be sure to include our girls (11 and 15 who sometimes must be physically strapped to the table so they will sit and play.) The girls love werewolf, so hopefully they will also enjoy this one. My wife and I have really enjoyed "The Resistance" with out friends in Dallas and look forward to getting in some games with the family...and tomorrow...In memory of Jack.
