A couple of weeks ago I created a geeklist Geek listers Block. It was not meant to be very serious. But I was serious about using some of the ideas it contained. Here is the first one. This one was suggested by

We all enjoy Tom's components drop. (For the few people who don't know what I am talking about, yes you Maarten. As part of Tom's video reviews he drops the games components into a big pile on a table.) But are there some games that you really should not drop onto a table? I'll start the list off with a couple and then we can see how imaginative the BGG users are.

I used to have a copy of this back when they were pretty common. Droping it then would not have been a big deal, but dropping one now. They cost a lot of money, especially if thay are actually working. I can't see anyone removing their copy from the cotton wool it's kept in to drop it on a table.

Drop this on the table and you'll probably break the table. Have you seen one of these? They are really big. And expensive, they are made to be played with not bounced off of tables.

The Spaceships that come with this game are great, but they are also notorious for breaking if you look at them too hard. No way they survive a component drop.

52 pickup. An oblique homage to the original 'component drop' where bigger kids pull a fast one on their unsuspecting younger siblings.

But these were MEANT to be 'dropped' (hopefully near a portable fan) devil

My wife accidentally knocked the walker miniatures off a shelf and onto the floor, and 4 walkers turned into 50 pieces she needed to glue back together to repair them.

Definitely not the kind of game you dump the components - at least not the larger, more fragile, walker minis.

For God's sakes don't drop them!

Don't knock them over.

Don't even look at them.

Just leave them be.

PS, don't roll the dice either, or the markings will rub off.

He shouldn't drop the components of ANY game!!! surprise

I appreciate (and enjoy) the reviews, but I DIE A LITTLE INSIDE every time I see those parts drops. cry

I would rather he give them to me, so I can provide them with a safe home.
