I got into gaming a while back, but really got into it around 2000 when I was living in Deutschland just north of Frankfurt. Butzbach is just north of Friedberg and south of Giessen on autobahn 5 (A5). My friend Pohy lives in the same region though I didn't know him at the time. Please give him thumbs and create your own top ten geek list. I will give a minumum of 100gg to the list that most appeals to me. The ten I have listed are not necessarily my top ten, but more of a conversation starter, though some on the list are favorites. Be creative. Attach a link to your top ten to this geek list and I will check them on, or before Jan 1st and choose the winner.



Edit: The contest is now closed (12/30/12 6:30 pm MST) and I would like to thank the three that entered. I am guessing that the value of geek gold is not what it once was as there were so few willing to participate. Consequently, you all three win. Happy new year friends.

A great introductory war-game, though some wouldn't label it as such.

I think it was a bit over hyped, but still a lot of fun.

Asymmetrical warfare is great, but I am not. I have never won as the Americans.

I have all three, but can't tempt anyone. I am glad to have them, but still so sad.

I love this game with two players as it is highly tactical.

This was game was the first, or second of my collection. I love both the offensive and defensive aspects of the two-player game.

It is my favorite game though some don't like it. My philosophy is this: everyone has the right to be wrong.

I wrote this one a few weeks ago, but it's pretty good (of course I'd think so).
