For my first attempt at a geeklist, here it goes. Please post games where you have a very unique version (with picture, of course) or games with unique versions pictured already on the geek. I'll start with the item I have that inspired this list.

Let's see what kind of creativity there is out there among geeks.

This was my birthday gift from my wife. She finished it late, but just in time for the 4th of July, so it works out well.

I'm going to now make wooden chess/checker pieces to go with this once I get better with a scroll saw, so I'll make sure to post them later.

I've just seen this picture so many times, that I figured I'd include this one as well.

Every version of Dvorak is unique, but this picture is from the deck my friends and I made. Originally I was thinking of 1000 Blank White Cards, but I like the Dvorak rules better.

Wiz War is one game that has been out of print for so long that people are making their own versions. Here's a LEGO version (not made by me).

You can't buy anywhere such a nice 3D edition of this game...
The image was uploaded by the designer himself; it seems to be only a inhouse deluxe version, never meant to be sold.

I used to own this backgammon board. The odd part is that it is screen-printed onto a large piece of faux-fur. I picked it up because it was kind of kitschy, but I eventually gave it away because of space constraints.

This is a 21 x 29.5 cm version of "Wings of War - Famous Aces" that I convinced Nexus to produce for me (and them) to go around exibits and shows. I'd like to have two of them made, one for me in Rome... but it is pretty expensive, so they just made one and I borrow it from time to time. And so... it's unique indeed!
Somebody stealed the promo card during a show.

I just created these werewolf cards. I got so addicted to BGG PBEM Werewolf that I had to create my own cards. They really turned out a lot better than I had first invisioned them.

I was just browsing entries, and came across this novel Go board. Quite innovative.

Many years ago I went to the Experimental Aircraft Museum in my home town of Oshkosh Wisconsin, and found an original 1981 copy of B-17 by On Target Games.

It's the prototype of the Avalon Hill version, and has very nice hand drawn components and box art.

As soon as I purchase a decent digital camera, (note to self: set aside some game money and buy a CAMERA!) I'll post some pics.

My homemade wooden Dune board. The real board is just too small! Each territory is a separate piece of wood, stained different colors, and glued to the base plywood. Non-desert territories are thicker than desert territories. (The Shield Wall is removable and replaced by a desert-thickness piece if it is blown up.) Army pieces are the wooden bits from Vinci, Spice are those translucent craft gems. One day I may get around to redoing the leader disks and Battle Wheels in wood as well.
