I heard something almost interesting on the radio this morning as I drove to work. Apparently, some chap in the USA has spent a hell of a lot of time working out exactly when the English language will contain one million different words. According to what I heard on the radio this morning, that day is today. Just to help him along (and perhaps prove him right) I've decided it would be a great idea for all of us here on BGG to come up with that word.

I've started the ball rolling, but feel free to add your own. Give the word, it's meaning and an appropriate game to associate it with for the purpose of this geeklist. If you think any of the words already exist, and you can be bothered, please comment afterwards, referencing the actual meaning.

The experience of satisfaction one gets from enjoying a game that looked particularly bland in rules and appearance, which you found out later to be so deep, profound or mechanically satisfying, that you're surprised a better, nicer-looking version wasn't made.

A rare hermaphrodite beast of burden, bred for ploughing furrows, which would have been castrated had it not been born without the correct elements of the organ in question. None have ever been seen in domestic cirumstances, nor in the wild for that matter, but at least we now have a word for one should it ever show up. Special thanks go to John Farrell (Friendless), for inadvertently bringing this word to my attention.

1. The delibrate use of jargon and complex language intended to obfuscate something which could have been expressed in a plainer and more intelligible fashion.

2. The discrimination of arguments to support one's stance whilst at the same time professing neutrality.

A work, product or design with something left out in order to add it later:

a) with the intent of making the final item garner a greater profit, or

b) just because you couldn't be bothered doing it properly first time around.

Related to item #4. Instead of doing proper testing, rush the product onto the market, only to release an upgraded version soon after based on customer feedback.

According to Reutars via Yahoo the millionth word is

"WEB 2.0"

Sounds like a grandiloquent discombobulation myself.
