Dear internet traveler, your cyber journeys have led you to a location that we will for now simply call BGG. Before we can allow access, there are a few things you should know about the site you are attempting to enter. There is much pleasure to be gained within, but also a cost to calculate. Please read the following items carefully and enter only if you consider these warnings to be agreeable life changes or reasonably managed risks. We thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Background: Over the past month I've found BGG to be an intriguing world with troves of gaming knowledge and insight. In short it’s been great, and since I'm in the infancy of my exposure to many of these games, the website is that much more awe-striking. I’ve been playing Settlers for a number of years, more recently got into a couple others, but only had a vague idea of just how much more is out there.

Recently I was launched into BGG and have been enjoying the revelation very much. However, the timing of my discovery and immersion into this world happened to coincide pretty closely to the birth of my third daughter (April 7th - Alethea). The combination of BGG addiction and new-born baby made me realize that there should be some fair warnings for all first time visitors to read and agree with before gaining access.

For the sake of new fathers (and others) everywhere I have created this geeklist. (with love and laughter)

Hopefully these will spark creative juices and this list will be expanded....just something to have fun with

Side Effect - Due to the warnings listed above, you may experience "concerned" comments from your spouse. This is especially true if spouse does not agree with the use of spent resources or does not understand your new fascination. Also note: Failure to ask appropriate permissions may increase the intensity of this side effect.
