Occasionally I read the posts from users dismayed by the amount of insufficiently-well censored photos submitted purely for GG that is getting by the moderators and clogging up the bandwidth of the 'Geek we have all so come to know and love!
Well, this is not one of those. Because if people weren't submitting patently useless photos for a fictitious currency, I wouldn't have had the inspiration for my very first Geeklist, would I?
So, lacking the thoughtfulness and creativity of a ynnen, say, or the single-minded devotion to a serious theme like a mrbeankc, I have gone down my list of favorite games, happily posting the most useless photo-submission I could find for just a few among them. Hopefully this list is relatively unique, and will -- if nothing else -- make for some interesting viewing.
Of course I don't have as many games as many others here, so if you have noticed seriously ridiculous or misguided pictures submitted for games of your own, or feel that there are photos even *more* useless than the ones I have selected, please feel free to add them on! But remember: this list is meant only as a good-natured lark -- posts that take themselves too seriously and demand that submitters of said photos should be stripped of all their rights should not be unduly surprised to have their entries deleted, but should instead feel free to go off and start their own mean-spirited Geeklist! devil

These are just games, people: let's have fun with it!

Because of course the point of this game is, like Jenga, to stack all your parrotfish-bellies in a pile and then, um, remove the lowest one you can without disturbing the rest?

I don't know about anyone else, but when I see this one I think: "Wow, now that is one mad-reflective (and fingerprint-smudged!) table!
And oh, this photo was taken at 10:48? Nice!"

Another one of those creepy disembodied hands showing us a single gaming element for no apparent reason. And why this particular one? Is this what we risk looking like after a 6-player game?

Sure, my tongue often looked this bad in the morning when I looked bleery-eyed into the mirror after a really hard night drinking and smoking - but then I didn't go posting a picture to the 'Geek of it ...

Hmmmm...Hope the game designer sells lots of copies of this game because this picture tells me SO MUCH about the game that I can't wait to rush out and buy it!! Shouldn't he at least be smiling, so I think that WHATEVER it is that he's doing is fun??

I thought for sure this one would have been added by now. Granted, it appears to be a helmet from the period covered by the game, but it tells nothing about the game, really has nothing to do with playing the game, isn't even part of the game.

When I look at the picture, I see a suitcase, a gamebox of Puerto Rico, and a nice drawing of a city or huge building. Oh, and in the lower right corner it says Magic...

I'll leave the funny comments to you.

What does this picture tell us?

A bit cheating, since it's not really one of my favourite games.

Without this photo, how could you tell the name of the game?

I have to enter this pic. When I first saw it in GeekMod, I didn't know what to do with it.. I thought it was compeletly useless, but there were no guidelines that it was in violation of, So I just hit skip and let others decide.

I guess others decided it was okay to be on the geek. But I still think it is worthless.
