I've added two board games to Wikipedia pretty much by creating the entry and saying they were board games. Before long they became fully fleshed out entries with rules summaries and all the rest of it.

What board games have you added to Wikipedia?

If the answer is "none," go add one! Wikipedia is still missing entries for many great games!

Twilight Imperium was introduced to me when Wikipedia was new and my favorite thing to do was find something not on Wikipedia and add it. I created the article for this one merely by saying it was a board game published by Fantasy Flight, and various others filled in the rest.

I created the Agricola entry by saying that it was a board game created by Uwe Rosenberg, released at Essen 2007, which had had some controversy regarding the accuracy of its rating on BGG. All that's still there, but much more has been filled in.
