I recently received a golden geeklister badge and am very proud of it. In celebration, I'm listing my personal favorites over the past seven years. Several were published even before the ability to thumb them. Here's a retrospective that I hope will create a few laughs. I have corrected many of the eventual broken links.

I always try to ask thought provoking questions or look at gaming on the humorous side. I hope I've been able to do that for others.

As always feel free to add your own.

Here goes...., Enjoy!

This is the one that began it all in 2004. It was in response to a geeklist that was only made to bash G.W. Bush. Yeah, it was political but it helped me learn how to do geeklists.

For those of you that have games that your significant other would not approve of (there's lots of them out there). This list got 19 thumbs even though it was published before the feature was added. Thanks everyone!

This was a sad one. I went home for my father's funeral to find that my parents had cleaned the attic which included all my old games. Lots of memories gone.

Lots of lists have been made to prove addiction to thrifting. This was mine from 2006. Once you purchase more than one copy of something it's a sign of going down that road.

This was from a trend I noticed that games had evil clowns. I'm sure the list could use an update.

This was created in response to a geeklist that asked what your worst job was. So many people commented on my entry that I fleshed it out in its own geeklist. It has a lot of the characters that I had worked with (NOTE: 'Character' does not necessarily mean a charming one).

This one was rushed off the front page terribly fast and only garnered 8 thumbs but remains one of my favorites. Another tribute, this time to Andy Griffith and Mayberry.

Incidentally I lived 9+ years in NC and visited Mount Airy (the inspiration of Mayberry). There is a rock formation nearby that overlooks it (Pilot Mount) that gave rise to the fictitious town of Mount Pilot.

A list pointing out the clich├ęs that seemed to reside in Mission: Impossible.

SPIDERS! Just in time for Halloween! Lots of participation in this one as everyone seems to have a story of how they were scared by the little 8-legged beasties.

I wondered what BGG would have been like if it had existed back when chess was introduced. Lots of great comments on this one and my second most popular by the thumbs.

My most popular list so far.

It remains unresolved in spite of my attemps for clarity.

How do you spell 'tiddledy winks'?????

A farcical look at game equipment. More people should join in on this one.
