Meta-List: Game Themes
GeekLists about Game ThemesRecommend
PLEASE ADD GeekLists centered around a particular theme. Add them as comments for the appropriate theme.
If you want to add a theme-based GeekList that does not fit an existing category, leave a comment and I'll either create or modify a category for it.
** For all discussion, please use LIST comments, reserving ITEM comments for links to theme-based GeekLists. Thanks!
Each theme has been given a "representative" GeekList, selected based on some combination of GeekList recommendations, number of items in the GeekList, and general consensus in the comments of this list.
BGG has an advanced search utility where you can search games by theme, but sometimes you just want to see a GeekList of games in that theme. Advantages of a theme-based GeekList include seeing other users' comments and discussion, the automatic filtering of games that no one thought was worth adding to the list, and the inclusion of games that never got tagged with theme in the first place (so they would never show up in your search).
