There are soo many neat features at this site that I am yet to fully explore everything there is to explore. One feature that I love most is the Geeklist. I usually check once a day to see what new list people created. And if it is really well done, I'll add it to my favourite, another really neat features that enable you to revisit all your favourites. So I thought why not make a Geeklist to list people's favourites? I picked one favourite from the list of favourites I keep and add reason why. There is no rule in this list.. just add your favourite geeklist and write why so.

My Favourite Geeklist is:
Robartin's Creepy Pictures on the Geek.
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist.php3?action=view&listi...

I had so much fun looking through this list that I added to my favourite immediately, wanting to keep revisiting it to see what other creepy pictures other Geeks found. It also really made me appreciate what a creative bunch we have here. From scary faces, da kraw, funny box cover, to pictures that make you go hmmm... it's all in here!! Wish people add more stuff.

I've been on this site for 15 years now, and I'm far from sick of games, but I think I prefer a better balance of favorites to new games. I'm also tired of playing 4+ hr multiplayer games, but I'll still happily play really long games 2 player.

For Which Games Have You Worked Out A Strategic Theory?

I have lots of favorites. I picked this one because it was written by one of my favorite producers of quality content.
Its a fine example of a good old-fashioned thought-provoking conversation about the games we love.

I think the best Geeklists are the funny ones. Sure there are plenty of great Geeklists with recommendations or comparisons or "best of x" lists, but I always enjoy the ones that catch me off guard and make me shoot milk out my nose! (That look on these faces says it all...)
Two of my Favorites are:

Game Group Personalities
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist.php3?action=view&listi...

Gameslang
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist.php3?action=view&listi...

Both of these are very clever and humorous. Be sure to check them out. My favorite that I've made is this one:

Which is the Best 'Empire Game' Available?
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist.php3?action=view&listi...

Ah, the holy grail of every gamer, the perfect civ/empire game! I am a fan of the genre, and this geeklist provided me a firm ground to start from. Although I've encountered and enjoyed many interesting/hilarious/informative/touching lists, this remains to be a memorable one because I've spent so much time reading and reading and reading it when I entered the hobby.

Also highly recommended are two contributions from cavedog:

I still wonder why Robert (the author) was not tipped for it.

because Mitch was my favorite comedian and I always laugh when I read these jokes.

and

because geeks say the darndest things.

I found this to be a thoughtful, interesting, and unique list... although primarily of interest to Americans and/or wargamers. It did inspire at least one similar list for another country.

It's a sobering reminder, as we enjoy replaying our paper & cardboard wars, that real people fought and died in those events.

This one had me rolling. It's basically a list of quick code names for 'one of those' games. Please add to this one, I'd love to see a few more entries:

This list was by one of my favorite old curmudgeons, Aleister Finchley, and the creativity that people put into choosing the five-word reviews was quite amusing...and it was very fun to come up with additions to the list. Four pages of entries!...so far!

There was a geeklist at one time where the author fictionalized a journey around the world to play various well-known geeks in games representing "their" genre and defeating them. It was quite an amusing read and I'm pretty sure I had it marked as one of my favorites. Unfortunately, it no longer appears that our favorites can be accessed. At least, I can't seem to find them anymore

My favourite list is:

The Worst Game You've Ever Played
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist.php3?action=view&listi...

Largely because of the first item, Wadjet which turned out to be such a dreadful game that the discussion degenerated into a flame war about an entirely different game. The thread has to be read to be believed.

The funniest list has to be this venerable gem, now updated with even funnier images:

Beware of geeks bare in GIFs (X-rated games?)
