In January 2008 I created a geeklist Are You a Normal Board Game Geek? which picked a load of mostly interesting facts from BGG's database.

Now, thanks to LankyEngineer's (and others) amazing series of polls we can see a lot more information about the geek community.

In this geeklist I've tried to pick out some of the more interesting poll results. This also has the benefit of concentrating (currently) 25 pages of Forum thread into 2 pages of geeklist.

Feel free to comment here (to cut down comments in LankyEngineer's thread), and add polls if you want, but include them in LankyEngineer's thread first (then you get the poll number to add in an entry here).

No surprise that the vast majority of us are men.
Over 44% of us are thirty-something, the biggest age group.
There are almost no kids (only 2%) on BGG - of the people who answer polls.
68% North American
25% European
3% Australian
Over a third of us are IT or science geeks. Who'd have guessed?

What are your thoughts about Global Warming?
It's a myth.
It's a hoax.
God's punishing us for ruining His planet.
It's a natural cycle that the Earth goes through every 10, 000 years.
Hey, I didn't like the North Pole anyway.
I can't drive 55, let alone give up my car!
I'm sitting on the fence about it, until I see more evidence.
I think I believe it's happening, but I'm waiting for the government to acknowledge it.
I believe in the theory, but it's not what is happening now. This is just a glitch.
I believe that it is what's happening now, but I don't think we can fix it.
I believe that it is what's happening now, but It's not realistic for me to stop driving or heating my house.
I believe that it is what's happening now, but I think other countries should clean up first.
I believe that it is what's happening now, but I think big business spews more pollution into the atmosphere than I ever will.
I believe that it is happening, and I'm doing my part to reduce my carbon footprint.
My kid's going to be the genius who fixes this mess!
We are all doomed, so why try!

What is your view on the origin of mankind ?
God created the world and all species(including man) in a short time around 6,000 years ago
God created the world and all species (including man) in a short time a few billion years ago
Man evolved from other species a few million years ago with some intervention from an intelligent being (God for example)
Man evolved from other species a few million years ago following strictly physical laws
I was created five minutes ago with all sorts of false memories implanted in my brain / I'm a brain-in-a-vat

61% of people just wanted to see the polls on LankyEngineer's list, which might explain why the responses to the polls shrank massively as the list when on and the postings dominated.
Feel free to comment as much as you like here because:
A) People can 'hide comments'
B) It might reduce the number of comments on LankyEngineer's list

We spend more time on the geek than playing. Which we kind of knew from previous polls as most people have less than 4 hours gaming and nearly all of us are on here every day!

Poll: What sort of game are you MOST likely to buy?
Choose one of the following:
The final three options may be 'despite personal indifference'.
A game that can be played 'solo'
A game that I know I enjoy playing (with others)
A game that I know my game-group enjoys playing
A game that I know my S.O. enjoys
A game that is rated highly on BoardgameGeek

Poll created by ZeroZilla

We buy games that we like, even if we don't think our game groups will like to play them.
That might explain the large number of unplayed games in our collections.
Like mine.
