The Coat of Arms of Clan Montgomery - Scotland. Yes, that's a woman with the head of a savage in her hand, and an anchor. No clue what it means, but it's cool.

In your best hipster-imitation voice, full of sarcasm and dripping with passive-aggressive condescension, describe your favorite game to your fellow geeks, or make fun of a popular game for being too popular.

Similarly arrogant and derisive hipster-y replies to your entry are welcome, as well.

So dust off your perpetually three-month-old beard, grab your pur-, er, "shoulder bag" and be the hippest hipster on the Geek. What makes *YOU* so cool?

Example:

Yeah, that's a cool game. But I like this game . . . you probably haven't heard of it . . . it's called Settlers of Catan? Yeah, it's like, well, like some older games out there, but it also does it's own thing, you know? You probably haven't heard of the older games I'm thinking about that it riffs off of, but I've been like, following this game forever, and each expansion just keeps flooring me. I mean, Dominion? Whatevs. That game stopped being cool after Hinterlands, it just got too popular, you know? But Settlers - it's still obscure enough that it's worth playing. You should check it out, I mean, if you can get in the mood for something really awesome and tear yourself away from Carcasonne for like, two minutes.

"Oh, you play Magic: The Gathering? That's so adorable. I guess you like playing a game where you get constantly mana-screwed and you have to spend $500+ on a single deck in order to even be competitive. Yeah, I play this other game, you've probably never heard of it. It's called Netrunner, and it's seriously the single greatest game in existence. Maybe someday when you're tired of the money-pit known as Magic you can join us elite Netrunner players. But good luck finding all the data packs when that happens, tool."

It's a nice little game but you probably haven't heard about it. I don't know what's wrong with gamers nowadays. This game is really hard to find and quite expensive now, but I managed to find it for an incredibly cheap price. I received it wrapped but you know how I feel about rare games not played. I wonder why it didn't get any awards... Guys, I think you really don't deserve to have a friend like me, bringing you the best games ever. I should probably change friends! I hope one day you'll understand how I feel and how hard it is to always have to be the one bringing gaming knowledge to you, guys.

Yeah, Frisch Fisch and Mordred are pretty good, I guess, but I like to try and find stuff that's a little more off the beaten track, you know? There's kind of a maker vibe to this one—hardcore PdA-heads will get what I'm talking about—the only way I like to play it is on a handmade table, just something banged together from whatever lumber I find cycling back and forth from the farmers' market. I created my own tile bag with my loom too, yeah, took me three days, but definitely worth it, got the yarn up at a farm collective in Columbia county, and these sheep are so freaking amazing, I mean they're just standing there in the middle of the road blocking the traffic and they get it, you know? Oh, you like the game box? Yeah, I got that backpacking in Thailand, real bamboo, and it's also a hookah. Yeah, my girlfriend is into other cultures, you know, and we smoke Moroccan shisha, so much better than Turkish shisha, but you might like Malaysian, it's a little milder and not as complex. For a soundtrack I like to go with something simple, maybe some German gong music for mountain climbing, or that field recording of the harmonica symphony those five schizophrenic guys did? Yeah, I have it on vinyl, I don't do the digital thing, it's just a personal choice.
