Every song in this geeklist is hand-picked to serve as subtle thematic background music while playing board games.

Feel free to send me a private message if you have ideas for new additions, but please keep in mind that the music is supposed to stay in the background and enhance the game's atmosphere in a non-distracting way, so songs with hectic rhythms or lyrics are generally excluded from this list.

This list is under constant construction and will be expanded and updated irregularly.

I also recommend taking a look at Bart "Qeester" Quicho's similar geeklist ►here.

Thanks for all the feedback, enjoy the music !
