Geeklists about Gold.

Including, but not limited to:

1) Tryin to acquire gold in all its forms be they Gold Medals, Piles of Gold, Shares in the Gold market, etc.

2) Games that have piles of bits that represent gold (bars, nuggets, coins, etc) for players to hoard. The better the artistry the better!

3) Games that have characters in them that really hoard gold. Describe the character and his hoard.

Obviously lots of games have gold in them, but these games should be full of gold or demonstrate the greed for gold.

One of the few games in this vein where you can play gold ore miners! The gilty player jumping the richest claims claims the prize and can say "It's mine...all mine!"

Everyone else, of course, gets shafted.

You mine for gold. You stack as much gold as you can. You do anything to prevent others to get gold. You win if your greed for gold is most succesful than any others' one.

Armada - You go in search of gold. Fight off the natives or other players for the gold and literally stack it on your ships and sail back to your pirate base with the gold (normally to spend on more pirates so you can get more gold). There's a limited supply of gold in the game, but the stacking of the gold pieces (that come with a whole in them so you can put them on the ship's masts) is really cute.

Same name--different game. This one's about panning gold and placing bets on whether a player is going to pan a specific amount of gold.

Gold is one of the commodities traded in ancient China, but the illustrations show the artist didn't realize in what form it was traded. Rather than depicting gold as a formless lump, they should have drawn it as Roman coins, which because of their consistent size and content were able to be reliably used all over the world.

Gold is one of the scoring components of Lawless, and there is even a GoldMine card that can help you earn even more gold (at least until it blows up).

Game about searching for and finding gold. The game ends when the gold train arrives or all the gold has been mined. For laughs, we shout out "Eureka!" loudly and abruptly every time we find gold!

This game is all about getting the gold back to your port to win the game. Gold is represented by counters with gold chests on one side and a number of dots on the other to show value.
