The game itself isn't important. Spending time intellectually jousting with likeminded folks is the real reason to game.

Earlier today, I noticed that I had crossed the 10,000 thumb threshold - the "golden meeple"! I should be getting that microbadge very soon!

To celebrate, I thought I would give away some games! Six, to be exact!

Here's the scoop.

Each entry in this Geeklist consists of a game and a question.

If you would like to win that game, give me an interesting or thoughtful or just entertaining answer to the question. Then, check back and drop some thumbs on the other answers.

On Tuesday, November 16, at about 6 PM CT, I'll go through the threads and pick my favorite answer to the question. That person will get the game for free! (I'll announce it here and send them a GeekMail.)

I'm expecting a deluge of responses to each question, so you can help me a bit by thumbing any exceptional answers that you see so that I notice the ones that have a pile of thumbs.

(Note: I will probably lean slightly towards entries from the United States simply because of shipping costs, but I'm certainly not opposed to picking an international winner for any of the games.)

(Note #2: All of the games are in excellent shape - no beat-up items here.)

His description of Fantasy Flight was, in my opinion, the best of the lot. For me, they're in the top tier along with Days of Wonder and Z-Man.

What BGGer do you pay the most attention to when they comment? Why?

and his wonderful description of StormKnight, but he doesn't actually want Gang of Four. Thus, my runner-up pick is

N/A

and his description of the contributions of JohnRayJr.

If you could only play one game for the next month, what would it be and why?

What upcoming game are you looking forward to the most, and why? (A link to the games' BGG entry is a huge plus here, since this will be a bit of a "game discovery" tool for me.)

His description made me laugh and also made me curious about Ninjato. I mean, it has ninjas in it!

His eloquent description of Lost Worlds made me nostalgic for some of my first gaming experiences.

His description of Galactic Emperor got me really intrigued by the game.
