My first attempt at a geeklist, so pardon any errors.

Inspired by the likes of Soren, Paul and Tom, I have set up a limerick theme.
Apologies if this one has been done before.

Feel free to add any games you played, as long as it comes with a Limerick!

Hey you guys, this looks like a rat
the bastard is lying, it's clearly a bat
Oh Shit, it's a royal
that makes my blood boil
but in the end, it was Roger that looked like a twat!

Let's build a ship and fly far through space
this will be fun, I love a good race
The predator ate everyone in the room
The commando's bombs went off with a boom
leaving gallons of blood, all over the place.

The world was threatened by 4 dread diseases
Hey no problem, we will cure them like Jesus
Black was quite bad
we cured it like mad

There once was a penguin who lived on the ice
his friends all thought he was not very nice
he had just 1 wish
which was to eat fish
but as he was stranded, he ate his own lice.

At Jungle Speed, Gabi rarely is matched
for the stick in the middle, they desperately snatched
these cards are the same
no they aren't you lame-brain
In the end gabi's hand was quite badly scratched!

I will build the best city in France
I can tell mine is the best, with just 1 quick glance
I draw and place tiles
this farm goes on for miles
Is this game better than Monopoly, perchance?

The cool kids all want to play with Sir Paul
Biblios must be the best game of all
When he teaches a game
that triples its fame
now Biblios is cooler than hanging out at the mall

Martin convinced some guys to play UR
he said this game is great, (it cost a five-UR)
they moved cubes around
his opponents all frowned
and across the room, you could hear them groan URrgghh!

In Jambo, as traders, you sell wares for gold
this game is so great, it never gets old
I'll hit you with an animal card
Stuff you, I'll block it with my guard
Jacob won this game, as all his wares were sold!

Someone wanted to play World of Warcraft
when it was suggested, everyone laughed
The board was full of Ocrs
The game was played by dorks
And everyone who played, felt a bit daft

When you play Small World, you know you will die
whether by sorcerer, skeleton, or a giant that can fly
You chose the best race
with a power that is ace
but after 2 hours, it ended in a tie!

In the corner there was a game of trains
And only money did the players have to gain
It was set in the West
and Riccardo won best
As Scott did not have Tagore to blame.

Curses, the assassin has murdered my thief
when he does that, it fills me with grief
he's done it again
this fills me with pain

This game was written 3 decades ago
How it works, I really don't know
Behrooz wanted a pen
which seemed kind of zen
and back to his table he swiftly did go.

Some people think that Setllers is deep
but for others, it makes them weep
I think its not bad
but it makes me sad
when people ask if you have wood for their sheep.

Don't play dice with Zombies, they're incredibly vicious
they'll eat you right up, as they think you're delicious
They'll scoop out your brains
(vegan zombies eat grains)
and serve up your liver on fine china dishes

This game is played with a normal card pack
come on Martin, that really is slack
you have boards galore
why play cards therefore?
People will think that you have lost your knack!

I have not played this game called Sumeria
I think its about controlling an area
the box is quite tiny
the board's nice and shiny
but, the truth is, Ghost Stories is scarier.

-------------------------------------------

Martin and friends fought for control of Sumeria
Everyone hoped that they would be superior
I don't know who won
or who had the most fun
but the loser can kiss my posterior!

To win stuff you roll poker dice;
Pay money to keep faces nice.
There's some strategy,
(though luck's still the key).
I've played once, and yes, would play twice.

I like a space game; this has the Right Stuff.
Do'h, crap choice of mine! Some found the rules tough,
so the game was so slow,
for a train I need go
Did they continue? Or had they enough?
