The idea for this GeekList came to me while wondering what an expansion called "Flames in Flames" for World in Flames could be about. Within a few days I realised how, by changing a single word in a game title, you can get either a game in the same genre but about a different topic, or even a totally different game. Pig Latin quickly intruded, and all went uphill from there

FLAMES IN FLAMES

All WWII on two maps: ETO and PTO. Scale is 1 squad-crew/1 gun-support weapon-artillery tube/1 ship (down to rubber boats)/1 plane; 1 Hex = 50 yards; 3 minutes turn.

The rulebook is composed by 10 Advanced Squad Leader-sized volumes:

1. Terrain, Weather and Seasons.
2. Infantry, Guns and Tanks.
3. The Air War.
4. The Naval War.
5. National Characteristics.
6. Optional and PBEM Rules.
7. All WWII Weapons with stats vol. I.
8. All WWII Weapons with stats vol. II.
9. All WWII Weapons with stats vol. III.
10. Charts and tables.

A 1.8TB VASSAL Module is distributed for free on a 2TB personalised hard disk to the first 1.000 gamers who pre-order. A bi-monthly magazine titled "Size Anti-Matter" gives new rules, strategies and tactics, along with "expert" commentary articles and from 1 to 3 AARs in paperback form.

The title refers both to the players' fanaticism level (anyone playing less complex games is looked down with contempt by default) and the general state of their brains.

CALL OF CTHULHU LCG: ASYLUM QUACK

An expansion for the CoC LCG composed by 60 new cards - all of them duds. Risible effects paired with unreasonably high resource costs guarantee that new players feel as good as veterans. Deck building consists of shuffling random cards and hoping for the best, since no card has any kind of synergy or connection with the others.

Given their value as "introductory expansions for those who can't think", Asylum Quacks are very sought after, commanding 200% of a normal expansion price.
