Games with Weird, Odd, Unusual, or Unorthodox Themes
But every once and a while, you get a theme, or a concept, that defies explanation.
Here is a list I've been working on for a while: it's essentially a list of the strangest, most unorthodox, most unusual themes for games/game expansions that I've ever encountered, heard about from other gamers, or read about here on the 'Geek.
These are all games which, for whatever reason, don't really sit within the paradigm of "standard" themes, and then take it a step further by just being plain weird. Some of them are actually pretty good. Others are highly questionable. They're all games guaranteed to draw a double-take with the right crowd.
I intend to update this list as I find more weird themes/games/etc. Please, feel free to add your own as we go along. Maybe, like me, you'll seriously consider adding some of these to your collection; you might also consider bringing along a portable wood-chipper on your next thrifting run.
One general rule of thumb: I've tried to avoid focusing upon unpublished games, or prototypes, or pnp games. Nothing wrong with any of those, but I wanted to concentrate on games that were actually marketed at one point or another.
This list is sorted by titles to make it easier to follow and less likely to attract repeats. You'll want to check every page for all the weird goodness (and not-so-goodness)
