I'm going through all of the board games indexed on the site in the order of their URL numbers, which I suppose corresponds to the time they were added to the database.

Every single game I'm even slightly interested in goes in this geeklist. I don't want to forget them.

This list is for personal use only, really, but feel free to comment.

If one of the games on the list makes another one on the list redundant in your opinion, please let me know, so I might remove one or the other.

If a game doesn't have a video review, its chances of being on the list are very low, unless it's an abstract strategy game or a card battle game or something like that, in which case I read the textual reviews, or if none of those exist, just the description/rules, and decide from that.
If a game is over 2 hours long, it is most likely not getting in the list.
If a game doesn't have an English release, it is most likely not getting in the list.
Children's games, Trivia games, and Solitaire games are also mostly barred from the list.
Wargames that are neither sci-fi nor fantasy hold no appeal for me either, and most of them are over 2 hours long anyway.

I'd happily play any game on the list at least once, but it's not likely that I'll buy a game where I list my interest level as 6 or below. 8 and above are the ones I consider purchasing, 7's are more along the lines of "If money wasn't an issue (but space was), I'd buy it."

Cool mechanics, but the theme isn't a great match for me.
Also probably the best area control game out there.
Interest level: 8.
Would I buy it for a buck: Yes.
How much would it cost me right now (through eBay), and would I get it for that cost? $40, and I'm seriously considering it.

Would love to play it, but don't see myself owning a copy. Definitely not without owning/renting a bigger house.
Would I buy it for a buck: No.
How much would it cost me right now (on eBay), and would I get it for that cost? $165, and no way in hell.

I ordered it from the FLGS a few months ago for 130nis ($33), but the local distributor wasn't really interested in serving an FLGS, rather, preferring to focus on toy stores and gadget stores, well bully for them. I dropped that order.
Today I had a chance to get a (barely) used copy for $20, and I gave it some more thought and realized it wouldn't see enough play to justify those $20 - not because it's bad, rather because I have enough light games and possibly enough abstract games, and I'd rather put those $20 to something that interests me more, like say, Roll Player.
