As I'm waiting for a phone call, I decided to make a geeklist that had some mathematical connection. After browsing a bit on BGG and Wikipedia I decided that this was as good a start as any.

The Perfect Numbers:

Wikipedia wrote:
In mathematics, a perfect number is defined as a positive integer which is the sum of its proper positive divisors, that is, the sum of the positive divisors excluding the number itself. Equivalently, a perfect number is a number that is half the sum of all of its positive divisors (including itself), or σ(n) = 2n.

The first perfect number is 6, because 1, 2, and 3 are its proper positive divisors, and 1 + 2 + 3 = 6. Equivalently, the number 6 is equal to half the sum of all its positive divisors: ( 1 + 2 + 3 + 6 ) / 2 = 6.

The Mediterranean Sea. Some people think it's a perfect location for their vacation, yet only one user thinks this is a perfect game. Just think of Mallorca, Monaco, Cyprus and those warm, sunny beaches!

GameID 28 (1 + 2 + 4 + 7 + 14)

Is this the perfect conspiracy? Illuminate: Deluxe Edition has ID number 28. I might point out that 28 is one more than the number of countries in the EU. Does that matter? Not in the least, but it's a striking coincidence!

This is a dilemma. Is it a perfect game or not? Not according to BGG users: no 10's and no 9's. On the other hand there are 2 zeros. That's not perfect is it?

The last game with a perfect number. One could say that ants are perfect in many ways - a perfectly rigid hierarchy with one lazy bugger reaping the rewards of the workers and soldiers. One could disagree as well.
