This geeklist is to show the fun things you can find in the BGG April Fool's Day "Geekdo" search engine. It is for people who want to find the things they missed or anyone who might miss out on the BGG April Fool's Day joke. Please add anything that is not already on here. Spoilers ahead!

4/1 morning:
I am glad everyone is having fun, but if you are going to post a new entry, please make sure it is not already in the list. If we're gonna get all the fun entries in here, everyone needs to help out in keeping the list from becoming an unusable mess

Also if you can, please put whatever content is associated with the search. I'm pretty sure that tomorrow we won't be able to access the Geekdo search anymore so anyone who missed out will have to rely on this list to see what was there

4/1 evening:
It's over now, but Aldie left it up over here for anyone who wants to keep playing with it: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geekdo

Thanks Aldie and all the admins!

Try searching for "fail". no idea what it gives though.

Type 'easter eggs' and it tells you there are over 50 of them (like that is news). I'm off to bed, just a bit disappointed that 'godot' never worked.
