I've been a member of the geek since 2004. Finally decided to pluck up the courage to create a geeklist. Trouble is, when I come up with an idea, a quick search shows it has already been done.

So in trying to come up with something that hadn't been done, I was defeated. But here's a geeklist of ideas for geeklists that were thwarted at the first search. Maybe I need a to work on my imagination.

May as well start with where I currently live. Searched for "New Zealand" and found 5 lists.

The game chosen for this entry in no way reflects my views of New Zealand. Just thought Monopoly had to appear in my first list somewhere. No, I'm not a fan.

I know it's not really any BBGer's favourites, but I do have fond memories of playing as a family when I was a child.

Next, where I'm from - good old "England". 13 Lists (OK some include New England), so still thwarted.

This game reflects my interest in the 100 years war and medieval history.

What made me think that no-one would have done a list about "children" and childrens games? Doh!

Had to list this game in my first Geek list even if there are already 36 geek lists about it. It was my first 'Euro' game, I enjoy it and so do my wife and kids, as well as extended family.

Tried to think about games I've "bought" (187 geek lists) because at the time of writing I was waiting for the postal service to deliver 2 new games I ordered. For the record these are/were Hammer of the Scots and El Grande.

Only found 5 geek lists using "lord of the rings" as my search criteria. Not as many as I thought.

Now why didn't I think of this one earlier? 0 lists. Still, imagination failed me of how to put a geeklist together. A future project maybe?

As I was writing this list I remembered I had to put the washing out to dry. So as a last minute idea I searched for "washing" and "Chores" geek lists. These searches returned 0 matches (wonder why? ).

So, I'm off to put the washing out and think of a chores and/or rugby based list.

It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

You know, they say there was a man who jumped from the forty-FIFTH floor? But that's another story...
