So, you play lots of games, but there are some game characters/pieces you like more than others. This list shouldn't include Characters you choose because you like the way they play, just ones that pop up and you think, they are just cool :-)

Yes, in the bottom left, it's the guy who inspired the list, it's...

'Da Bish!'

While playing this rather drunkenly, we we noticed 'the Bishop'looks a bit like he is leaning back and holding his hands out going 'Hey...!'. And so 'Da Bish' was born. Every time he is played, the player speaks with a stereotypical Italian gangster action..'Hey, I'm Da Bish, don't mess with me'.

So, if the Assassin has gone, and the Archaeologist is looking risky, pick Da Bish, he'll always pull you through...

It's top right, Samuel O'Toole, The Bearded Man. Being a bearded man myself, i always try and ensure Samuel O'Toole has the worst life of all, i just love the idea of a bearded man in a circus troupe... Awesome...

This time, bottom middle, it's the calculator. Any ability that makes you say out loud...'EQUALIZE' in required silly voice has to get the vote.

Especially when to full effect you choose NOT to EQUALIZE!


EQUALIZE!!!!

From the original set of Guess Who, it has to be....Anne!

'Why Anne?' I hear you cry (Or maybe you are crying over this geeklist)

Well, not only does Anne look a bit like my mum (No, my mum doesn't have a nose that big), but my mum is called....Anne!

Shock horror....

She doesn't wear green ear-rings though.

Standing there, looking innocent on the far left... It's....MRS WHITE!!!!

Ok, whenever I played Cluedo as a kid I chose Prof Plum, he was cool, but in the UK there is a Cluedo Quiz machine in the pub, and every time I play I always choose as the first choice...

Mrs White with the Rope....Strong hands after kneading the dough you see.

If it's wrong I always blame the fact she has changed her modus operandi, or someone is framing her.

She is evil I tell you... EVIL!!!!

This may seem too obvious...but as my early childhood was on a farm in rural Maryland, I have always had a thing for wholesome style farm girls. I thought it had reached its apex in Mary Anne from Gilligan's Island...but then Jenny comes along! (also curious to me as my first ever kindergarten crush was on a Jenny)

There were a lot of good characters in Swords & Sorcery. Unamit Ahazredit for one (go one, sound out that name).

But my favorite - Chairman Naskhund, head of the Orcish Revolutionary Coalition, the O.R.C. A Soviet-style orcish power in the middle of the valley, surrounded by elves, dwarves, and humans. Naskhund took an ill-organized orcish rabble and made them into the most powerful state in the Valley. Until everybody else ganged up on them in a scenario known as the Destruction of the O.R.C.

A sad end to a revolutionary orc.
