In anticipation of Jimmy Fallon moving to a time slot where I might actually be able to see a little bit of his show, I'm creating a geeklist in his honor. Jimmy has taught me how to take the time to thank the folks (and sometimes inanimate objects) that have positively impacted our lives.

So, with that in mind, I would like to extend a hearty thank you to the following. Please feel free to share in the public display of gratitude by adding your own.

When you stopped serving meals, your lovely dinnerware made its way to my thrift shop. Twelve for a dollar, I use them during play for the various bits many games have.

How do I love thee! At least, your little tins if not your peppermints. My coworkers collect them for me and I use them for storage in lots of games.

A Midwest fast food chain with yummy hamburgers, frozen custard and a condiment bar with little plastic cups (with snap-on lids) for ketchup, mustard, and....game bits.

Bicycle Playing Cards

In Mush Mush you play a tournament of 3 races where mushers coming in 1st, 2nd, 3rd are awarded 10, 7, 5 points - but the designers didn't provide a mechanism for keeping score. That's where an old pack of cards comes in. The 1st race awards hearts, the 2nd clubs, and the 3rd diamonds.

Target

In particular, the lunch meat that you sell in these wonderful plastic containers. And, you can remove the labels from the lids so that nobody knows that their zombies are stored in a container that once held smoked turkey.

Well, not until now, at least.

At least, I suspect you are the segment that developed the market for little star stickers - I know my piano teacher used them. Thanks to these little stickers, I am now able to tell the native Americans from our patriot troops.

Poker

Turfmaster is a fun racing game, but they didn't provide a mechanism for keeping score across races. Poker chips from my local thrift shop took care of that problem.

Thank you, fancy hotels, for those little sewing kits you leave with the shampoo. I love the little plastic boxes. I'm still looking for a use for the shower caps.

Sequence

Thank you Sequence for including cheap red and green poker chips with your game. The Resistance (at least the version I have) has too many cards. Cards to indicate your character, cards to vote on a team, cards to pass or fail a mission - too confusing.

I use red and green chips to indicate stop and go when voting on a team. Easier.

Mahjong

Ever play trick taking games with a bunch of old people? We're always trying to remember who dealt last. Thanks to my mahjong set, which included several blank tiles, I have classy looking markers to denote the dealer. Well, classy until I wrote DEALER on them with a sharpie.

Due to the combined efforts of Matt Leacock, a nameless friend who spilled beer on my tiles, and my canine furkid who ate a Sandbag card, I have a spare parts version of Forbidden Island that provided a lovely 3-D explosion marker to Flashpoint.
