Here's your chance.

I don't have any any particular theme here for which game you choose other than that.

It's just an issue that threads have come up a couple of times recently to complain about Lists that are only about the Originator.

Not enough Lists where Everybody contributes.

So here's one slapped together for Everybody to participate.


but what you had better do in order to make it worthwhile is at least tell us
Something Important
about your entry.

OK, I'm just tired of hearing so much about some rail road game series with tickets.

Even though I own several in that series, and readily play {several minus one}...

I simply get more sense of accomlishment out of the $economics$ element in this one.

I wanna put this in a GeekList because I wish more people knew about it. Make that had known about it, because now it seems to be disappearing.

If you think about Gateway then this should attract your attention. It is easy for non-gamers to enter and still gives them a worthy challenge to learn from, and within an easy time-frame they can be comfortable with.

and I wanna add it so more people take an extra moment to find out.

A great, cheap, fun, funny, game that needs more love. Room for strategy without AP. Contents are in color so don't let the box throw you off. For $10, just add it to your next order already.


Another one that flew under the radar, despite being a (GASP!) Stefan Feld design is:

It Happens..

A fantastic hidden-roles, variable-powers, who-is-who game that doesn't get the love it deserves. This easily fired Resistance for my group and is now the default go-to party game and gateway game.

For those leery of the art style, the cards are not nearly as overbearing as the box cover. Don't let the cover art turn you away. There is an AMAZING game here.

I know the words "overrated" and "underrated" are overused. But this game is sadly underrated. It has many things many gamers love and several good mechanics all working at once - it has an auction/bidding aspect, a hand management/set-collection aspect, some nice "screw your neighbor", it's quick to teach and has a good amount of strategy - all in 45 minutes or less!!

A perfect "school night" game (or "we need to start dinner in less than an hour") - but when you still want a game that is an actual game, not "just a filler".

It doesn't pretend to be a big, epic, 2-3 hour game - it's perfect for what it is.

Oh and it's a Knizia!! So it has to be awesome.

Not only is it one of the few good strategic-level campaign games of the WW2 Pacific Theater, it was the first wargame I branched out into "on my own" that wasn't something my Dad taught me (ah, the fun we had with DDay, Russian Campaign, Battle of the Bulge, Panzer Leader, Panzer Blitz, Tobruk, Midway, and Afrika Korps).

I also gratuitously wanted this game on the list so that any VITP mavens I haven't reached yet will find out about this: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/14562568

One of the oldest hobby wargames that still has it's own nationally-attended annual tournament.

I've been wanting to add this one to a list for a while. In the right group this is a very fun, high-conflict game.

Does it have problems? Sure. Can it get stuck in a loop? Yep.

But, I think the real question is: can I be an Albino gorilla with the brain of Adolf Hitler trying to genetically engineer dinosaurs to conquer Earth?

Yes. Yes I can.

This game needs more attention. It combines the simplicity of Checkers with the complexities of Chess. Im surprised frankly that this game hasn't broken the top 10 in recent years. Im a fan of Agricola, Puerto Rico and Terra Mystica, but when I want something that will actually challenge me, I always go for BLARF.

Because of the cover image.

Seriously, people. Don't laugh! This is one of the emotionally most moving covers I have ever seen. Spare a few moments and take a closer look...



The little girl in its blue dress looks so scared and frightened. The forest is so dense and dark and wild... You really want to bring those kids home now, don't you?

I found the game in a geeklist about the best game covers by year, and I don't know more anything about that game than what is written in its entry. So, except for the cover image, there's hardly any reason to add it to any other list.

Reminds me of this great painting, by the way:

Important notes about the game. 3 people have rated this game. 1 user is listed (currently) as owning it. My guess is these 3 people know each other. No one has uploaded any images for it.

I listed this because I've never really been able to get this one in a GL before. I don't really know anything about it and I love the name. Not to mention the fact that it's so specific in it's approach. It's not just Volleyball it's Women's Volleyball. Wait it's not just Women's Volley ball it's Women's College Volleyball.

Pancake!...and now it's listed.

What a neat premise.

Also, maybe this one won't get deleted.

Oh, you want to know about the game. Well let's see. It's pretty much only available in Germany so that makes it pretty exotic.

The game is played by the adult player moving a candle around through a field of trees. Then the child tries to move the dwarves in such a way that they will be hidden in the trees shadow. If the dwarf is caught by the light then it's frozen for a time. If all dwarves get frozen the adult player wins. I don't know what the win condition is for the dwarves though.

To be honest I have added this game to some GeekLists. For example to GeekList - game that only you have played in month... And that's what I want to talk about - game is very good. Not great, but good looking, nice mechanics and pleasant gameplay. But it has so few attention from players. Almost nobody talks about it or even mention it.

I'm both the author and the publisher of this game. I try to add it to as many geeklists as possible in order to give it more visibility. cool

As soon as I get rid of all copies I still have at home I'll probably stop adding the game to geeklists.

I add this because it is what my daughter describes as her "favorite game", and one of the few that she is still willing to play with me as she gets older. She is twelve-going on twenty, and is simply too cool to play games with dad any more. But this one, she will play, so it goes on the list.
