At the beginning of this year, I started work on what has become a labour of love for me:

A component-only picture of each of the top 500 games

It is all but done now, but I need your help to improve it and to help publicize it so more people are aware of it.

The Geeklist

The purpose of the geeklist is to show a good quality picture of the components of every game in the top 500. I got fed up up having to trawl through pages and pages of pictures to find what components I would get if I bought a game. The galleries are getting more and more clogged up by the day with pictures of individual components, PnP versions and bits pimped in some way or another; it is getting increasingly difficult to find a picture showing the components in their pure, unadulterated form.

Where you come in

Lots of games simply do not have a picture of their components, and yet more still have pictures that give an idea of what is in the box, but don't really do the game justice.

Please look through the list to find games that need some love. If you have the game, then lay out all the components in an eye-pleasing manner and take a photo of them. Upload it into the game gallery with a comment to the effect that you have added the picture for inclusion into this list, and then post here once the picture is geekmodded successfully. I will then change the image in the geeklist to your image, and you can sit back, happy to have made a difference. When you add the picture to this list please use: [imageid=xxxxxxlarge].

Why you should bother?



There will be 200 in prizes, to be shared amongst the contributors. 100 will be from my pocket, and the other 100 has kindly been donated by BGG (Thanks, Octavian)

Once the deadline for entries has closed, I will put up another geeklist with the best entries in. The pictures that get the most thumbs will win some prizes.

First Prize: 50
Second Prize: 30
Third Prize: 20

As this list fills up, I will arbitrarily award some GG to people who submit photos as my way of saying thanks for participating.

CLOSING DATE

The closing date for entries will be 13 December, at which point I will put up the geeklist for people to vote for their favourites.

BUT I CAN'T TAKE PHOTOS / DON'T HAVE A CAMERA / CAN'T BE ARSED

You can still win some and help the cause.

I still need your help for the publicity, and to reward you there will be a small GG prize on offer. When this list closes, I will randomly pick someone who has thumbed the geeklist with all the pictures in. and give them 10GG. If they have also thumbed this list, I will double the prize to 20GG

If you see any pictures you like as they are added, please consider clicking on the image and thumbing or tipping it and support those trying to make BGG a better place.

I've decided to have a shot at this too.
This is my first components picture, so don't be too harsh blush
The picture of Agricola out there is quite cluttered, so I thought to try with it.

EDIT: oh, and that's the Italian 2nd edition, I hope it's OK.

Wow, you've all set the bar really high. Here's the first in a series of submissions (I hope to have them all approved and posted before the list is closed). Photographing games is hard work! I have developed quite a healthy respect for FortyOne's contributions, to which I can't hold a match. Thanks, Jenks, for this list and inspiring me to finally work up the effort to earn my avatar.

This game is a reliable disappointment every time I open the box. Totally bittersweet: such a great game, such a crappy production of it. The certificates are its one redeeming value (other than the gameplay, but WotC had nothing to do with THAT).

I had a great difficulty with lighting and glare. I seem to remember a geeklist a while back about how to photograph board games...probably should have looked into it before trying all of this.

I tried a few shots of my own of several games to improve the selection. I tried to have the maximum natural light, but I did have to make some PhotoPaint improvements. Most of the shots are of the German versions.
