How about a contest?
I've got 3 to award to the winner (plus whatever may end up in the tip jar).

So imagine you are stranded alone on a desert island.
What one Book, Music (album or CD) or Game would you most want to have with you to help you while away the hours, and why? No movies, unfortunately. The Dread Pirate took your DVD player as he cast you adrift...

You will have to keep yourself entertained with a Book, Music or a Game.
(For Music, assume that it is the only album that you had time to load onto your ipod. For Game, you will have to pick a game that you can play solitaire, or you can play against your imaginary friend "Friday" as your mind starts to melt down...)

The winning entry will be the one that receives the most thumbs by Satuday June 14, 9am Geek time. If my entry wins, or if there is a tie, I will randomly pick a winner from amongst all who have thumbed that entry.

Please thumb-up the entire list along with your favorite entries.



Congratulations to Flying Arrow for the popular and insightful entry of... The Bible!!

Fortunately the impending tie between "Bible" and "Porn" was broken, avoiding whatever cataclysmic event that may have ensued

Thanks to all for playing and for adding to the prize pot!

Brian Eno's Desert Island Selection

I owe this contest's theme to Brian, plus it is an all-time great compilation album of some of Eno's best earlier works. Although I would probably prefer the LP version - officially titled More Blank than Frank - which contains a slightly different mix of songs. Along with classics like "Taking Tiger Mountain" and "St. Elmo's Fire" the LP version includes one of my all-time favorite rockin' Eno tunes: "King's Lead Hat" -- which is an anagram of _______?

I'd have to bring this one. By far my favorite game with multiple scenarios and some very clever folks here have generated some single player variants that work suprisingly well.

It's going to get awful lonely being stranded alone on a desert island indefinitely so a "classy" porn magazine seems pretty appropriate to help pass the time.

I've really been wanting this game, but who has the time to learn it and play it? And who has the space to leave it out as you play through the entire campaign?

Well, when I'm on said desert island, I'll have all the time and space I need to play this one over and over! Huzzah!

The game I have waited my whole life for.

It is all plasti-crack and will hold up well.

I get to make boards, make customs, and play games, not to mention make my own house rules.

Of course when I say Heroscape I expect to have all the expansions with it ( since I have 2-7 of all expansions in my collection )

Lets face it people, if your alone on an island it would be way cooler to talk to mini's then to a volleyball

WIth the Nakita Agents you got the Charlie's Angels to sleep with, for variety you have Raelin - a hot chick with wings ( that means you can dream of sex in the air ).

You could make customs from Hermit Crabs and make a game out of that ( you have an enemy that is alive and moving across the board ) - plenty of time to make custom rules for it.

Don't leave home with out it!

If I'm allowed to bring any and all expansions and errata, I'd choose Star Fleet Battles. I'd keep the bits I like, and build a house of the rest!

OK, I can't take credit for this. I recall this very answer many, many years ago on rec.games.board when this question was raised. So if this somehow wins, please give the GG to a more worthy entrant.

I'd bring the game which actually sims some elements of survival skills.

If I remember right, the manual actually has information which one could learn from.

And it was the first solo board game I ever played.

If we are talking a game with any and all expansions this would be one. I figure if I had a pair of nail clippers tidying up the counters alone would take up the first 5 years. Give me a couple more years to read and digest the main rulebook, a little more for module specific rules and I figure I could live happily for 10-15 years without even PLAYING the game.

I took the game over the book because there would still be plenty of reading, however, if I were only allowed a book it would be a custom bound copy that included Stephen Kings Dark Tower series in its entirety. This is a series I have read several times and I just don't get tired of it.

If I were to only bring one record, it would be the one that I listened to most in high school. Black Metal by Venom. I know that album better than anything, and I figure I have at LEAST a few thousand plays left in it before I start getting tired of it.

But forced to make a choice, it would be ASL.

These three boardgamer geeks are stranded on a desert island with their favorite games.

Suddenly a genie appears and says, "Usually I grant three wishes but since there are three of you, you each get one wish".

The first geek says, "I kinda miss the comfort of my house and stuff so I wish I was back home".

POOF! He disappears.

The second geek says, "I miss my wife and kids. And the cat. I wish I was home".

POOF! He's gone.

The third geek thinks for a minute and says, "I didn't bring any solitaire games and I miss those other two geeks. I wish they were back here".

POOF!

I might slowly drift into insanity from boredom, but at least I'd give myself a shot at surviving long enough to go insane.

When I get tired of playing (which will probably never happen), I can use the cards to to light a bonfire for signalling rescuers.

Well, not the good cards, I mean.

Errr... well, okay no bonfire. But maybe I could build a raft. Or a shelter, like the guy in the picture.

It contains

That way i'd have plenty of reading to pass my time.

(Hope it counts, as it's actually 4 books but they are bound together to make it easier to carry)
