Geeklists are one of the best parts of BGG. The best Geeklists will make you laugh, they'll make you cry, they'll change your life. This list is dedicated to them.

So, here's a few that I liked well enough to add to my favourites. What's your favourite Geeklists?

I'm sure there must have been geeklists like this before, but I don't remember seeing any recently, and a quick, superficial, lazy search hasn't revealed anything, so there.

A brilliantly written satire and sociological statement from years ago.

Actually, it's just funny as hell.

(Hope the author doesn't mind me adding it here.)

Added by popular request.

EDIT: And self-thumbed this entry, just to drive the point home.

EDIT 2: And found out that you cannot, in fact, tip yourself. For shame!

Interesting, sometimes contentious take on games that are similar, or scratch the same itch, to the point where you only need one in your collection. Of if you prefer, it can be looked at from the point of view of a "if you like...then try..." list
