I've had the idea for this geeklist for a little while and hope that people catch the spirit of it and keep this rolling since it should be a lot of fun.

My wife and I were talking about funerals the other day and how sad it can be that so many times the nicest things are said about people after it's too late for them to hear it.

With that in mind, I'd like my fellow geeks to post a shout-out to a favorite BGG user, friend, family member, or anyone at all that you feel deserves a little bit of your public praise.

I'll start.

I'd like to give a shout-out to my brother-in-law and fellow BGGer Chris Hansen:

Without this guy, today I might not be in the hobby that has brought me so much joy. Chris not only started the gaming ball rolling in my life by directing me to my local game store where my eyes were opened, he has also been my most regular gaming partner since I've gotten into the hobby.

Euros, AT, Wargames, abstracts, whatever, Chris is always game and willing to play, learn and try something new. He's got a third-degree blackbelt in thrifing games and is always good for info whenever I'm in a thrift store to see if I should pick something up or not.

Chris has made numerous contributions to BGG, having uploaded hundreds and hundreds of images for obscure and otherwise image-less games. On top of that he's added over 150 games to the database and runs the Columbia games P500 geeklists every month.

Chris, I salute you!

I recently read Michael Tsuk's tribute to his wife (link to list above) and, like many others posting comments there, I am once again reminded of how precious is my own dear wife, Darlene.

She is the one who brings much needed balance to my life. She is my better half. She is a steady as I ride my roller coaster life. She is my dearest friend, my lover, my work mate and my play mate. She is the mother of my kids and one that they all look up to with great love and respect. She has put up with me and my failings for 25 years and yet does not nag. I love her dearly.


My bride, Darlene

I encourage others to say something nice about their wives in a comment below or in a separate item.

I'll go ahead and shout-out to my wife, Jenny. She's not a particularly active BGG user, but she does pop on every now and then. Mostly she just tolerates my bizarre board game hobbies. Over the course of our marriage she's watched my game collection balloon from about 5 games to over 400 with minimal complaint. She also puts up with me bringing home trunk-loads of crap from the thrift stores with the hopes of adding games to the database or taking pictures of little known games. She's even been known to bring home games from the thrift store for me. I fondly remember the phone call I got one day, "I'm at the thrift store, is Mutant Chronicles: Siege of the Citadel worth anything?"

She is a great sport and plays games with me often, though she doesn't enjoy them nearly as much as I do. The game for this geeklist, Once Upon a Time, is one of her favorites.

She's a great mother for our baby and and a terrific wife for me. And from what I understand, she is a decent sister to JonnyLawless as well.

This guy was just barely Chit Chatter of the Day so I don't know how much more praise he needs, but since he was good enough to start this list, I'll go ahead and shout out to him. Jonny is a great gamer and a great friend. Sure his game preference can be a little predictable (if you give him a list of ten games and ask him to chose one to play, he will pick Ra every time, whether it was in the list or not ). All kidding aside, he is generally up for anything (so long as you promise to play Ra afterwords) and is a great opponent, win or lose.

Jonny is a proud chit chat-a-holic and hopes to get his Golden Meeple Microbadge without ever making a useful contribution to BGG. I never have to worry about filtering through the wheat and chaff in chit chat because he does it for me by replying to the best threads.

Jonny is also married to a lovely women who has been a great sister-in-law and formidable gaming opponent as well.
