I got the inspiration from an old GeekList:
<A TARGET=BLANK HREF=http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist.php3?action=view&listid=181>http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist.php3?action=...stid=18...;/A>

But unfortunately the list didn't allow public additions. So here it comes: unique games version 2. List any game that you think has the most unique concept, mechanic, backstory, etc...

How many games use magnets as playing pieces, and the manipulation of magnetic fields as a dexterity contest?

The fire in Feurio! is using a unique mechanism to spread in the forest.
There is no other game (as far as I know) handling the theme of fighting a forest fire as an abstract game.
And Feurio! supports competitive, solitaire and cooperative play.

I cannot think of any other game with even remotely similar mechanics.

Sadly, many people don't seem to "get" this game.
