I love the Order of the Stick web-comic. I kept thinking how often characters play games or refer to games within the comic. I wondered if I could put together a list. Perhaps surprisingly you won't find Order of the Stick Adventure Game: The Dungeon of Dorukan in this list.

Warning: They may be spoilers in the list below. On the other hand the list below might completely scramble your mind as to the plot.

Rules: The reference listed can be to any sort of game. Not all games will be in the BGG database, at which point I will stretch as far as I need to, to find a placeholder. However if the reference is to a cultural artefact that happens to have a spin-off game in the BGG database, that does not count.
