Apply to be my Geekbuddy, and improve my personal and highly idiosyncratic geekbuddy game ranking system.
- Nick BentleyUnited States
My taste in games is very different from the typical BGGer. I dislike many of the games in the top 100, for example. For this reason, I rely heavily on a carefully curated geekbuddy rankings list to identify games I'll enjoy.Recommend
The problem is: I only have like 20 geekbuddies, because it takes a lot of time and effort finding people whose tastes match my own on here. And that means my geekbuddy rankings are a little sparse data-wise.
So: the purpose of this geeklist is to find new geekbuddies whose tastes are similar to mine.
I'm going to describe the kinds of things I like and don't like below, and if you agree on most or all of the points, then alert me to your existence by posting an item to this list. Then I'll add you to my geekbuddies and my geekbuddy rankings will become more robust.
1. I play 2-player games more than any other number, and I prefer them.
2. I adore luckless, themeless 2 player abstract strategy games.
3. I like simple rules and emergent complexity in gameplay.
4. I like deep strategy - I play each game I buy 100 times or more.
5. I like games with lots of interaction.
6. I like games that hold the possibility of big, game-changing turns. Purely incremental games aren't for me.
7. I dislike fiddly components
8. I dislike games with lots of rules
9. I dislike point salads
Simple Examples That Sort Of Epitomize What I'm Talking About
My favorite game is Slither
A game I dislike is Le Havre
A designer whose games I love: Reiner Knizia
A designer whose games I don't: Stefan Feld
