Have you ever played a game where it's themed? For example, have you played 1812: The Invasion of Canada, while in Canada, and while in a location that's on the map? A game of London in London, or a game of Brass in Lancashire?

I'm going to start a GeekList for games that I have played while in a location that appears on their board (or game title, for example, if you played Puerto Rico in Puerto Rico).

And if you've ever played K2 while ascending K2, leave a Geeklist comment, because that would be truly impressive (Note: please do not actually attempt that and then sue me for suggesting it).


UPDATE: I've decided to close off this list and started a public one instead, where everyone can share their stories. Please look for that one and spread the word!

You can find the new list, which is slightly more restrictive, here.

I have played 1812: The Invasion of Canada in St. John, New Brunswick, which is technically on the map (but in colonial times, it was part of Nova Scotia).

I have played this in Boston and probably in the middle Massachusetts area on the map as well.

Technically I played this in the suburb of Cambridge, not Boston proper, so it may not really count.

Technically, I have played this in Somerville and Cambridge, but not Boston. So I'm not sure it counts yet.

I've played Rails of New England in New England (alas, since you cannot play as Massachusetts, I have yet to play as a state in that state).
