We all have those games that we love to evangalize, play, those that hold a special place in our hearts. Some of these games are less than popular though. So imagine that you are a newcomer to a game and you post a question only to hear crickets, eventually, you forget your question and go on to playing caylus. If only someone had been there to help.

Pick a game you like and wouldn't mind helping others out with.

There is a lovely little box you can check for each game called, "notify me of new content". To become a geek-helper, just check that little box on a game you like and do your level best to answer questions and say nice things about session reports.

Now you can either be modest about this and do your duty silently, or be a glory hound like me, and post what game you picked here on this list!

Note: This is completely unofficial etc etc.

I was a Fasa fanboy at one point. Earthdawn, Shadowrun and Crimson Skies.

The game is clunky but lots of fun, I don't get to play it enough, but I do still have a big fondness for it.

I admit this is pulling light duty here, not many people playing this long out of print dud, but I will stand vigilant. Waiting for easy questions to answer!

Played the computer game when I was eleven, and loved it, despite never being any good at any computer game I have ever played in my life, ever.

However, I love this game and am happy to adopt it. Any rules questions, tips, hints, whatever, give me a geek-mail.

I've played a LOT of Die Handler over the years, as its one of my family's favorites. It also seems to be one of those games that generates a lot of questions the first few times it is played.

Consider me watching!

I have checked that box for almost all games that I own so I try to help out with those games I own when I can. I also have added quite a few games as RSS feeds which I find easier to quickly scan. I was close to making one of the stat of the week things that mkgray put out. It was the one where he listed the users who had commented on the most different game pages. I didn't make the list but based on the last entry on that list I was pretty close!

But if there was one that I'd say that I do this most for it would probably be this game. There have been others, like Ambush or even recently Kaivai but Wizard Kings has been a favorite for a long time and I don't see that changing soon.

OK, sign me up. I seem to have more plays than other people (thinking repeat play to show this game to be a true masterpiece).

I've been telling myself to write something on the game and maybe putting my name down here as a commitment will give me the pressure to do so. (Feel free to beat me up in a year when I fail to do so) laugh

Great idea. I'll take Fiese Freunde Fette Feten for 2 reasons.

1 - I rank it much higher than most.

2 - It's a great example of how great theme can make an average mechanic ridiculously fun.

For those of you who don't know - there is an online solo version of this game available here: http://hozo.hp.infoseek.co.jp/micropul/index.html

I have written a strategy guide for the online version and I would be willing to answer any questions concerning it.

Micropul is a great blend of strategy and tactics and the best web-based solo game I have ever played. Try it out!
