I really must protest the use of any game images on this site. This includes but is not limited to, images of the games and its components, images of people playing the games (especially if they look like they are enjoying themselves), creative images showing the components in a really cool way or a DIY format, etc.

I suffer from gottalookafemia. This condition requires that I look at any and all images on BGG as I scan different pages. The first stage of this malady then insidiously plants the thought in my head that the game in question looks like it is something that I might like.

The second stage of this terrible disease then actually convinces me to research said game and further bolsters my initial symptom from stage one.

The third stage sees me buying the game from a FLGS or online games supply.

The fourth and final stage is really nasty, the disease reverts back to stage one of a different image for a different game and it starts all over again.

Aldie, please remove all images from this site before my wife divorces me. She won't even play these games with me...maybe it wouldn't be so bad if she was a gamer herself...what if there was a game out there I could get her interested in...hey...look at that pic...Between The Sheets...hmmm...I feel I should check this out...looks like a nice cover...maybe its still in print...

I like to try to guess what games the random pictures on my front page are from and read about the ones I didn't recognize. Yes, I'm an expert at finding new ways to waste time on the internet. zombie

Sounds to me very much like another highly contagious communicable (and possibly even sexually transmitted) 'disease', also known as "The Travel Bug".... they may even be very closely related...

Stage One, also known as the "incubation period", starts off by looking at all these images of various places around the world that either look fascinating or show people having fun.

Stage Two, "the viral replication phase", then actually convinces one to actually research these places, and further bolsters initial symptoms from Stage One.

Stage Three, "the actual infection", sees one going to their nearest travel agency, or online airline site, and booking their trip.

Stage Four, and final stage ("the latent stage")is also quite nasty and can vary in duration... it reverts back to Stage One of a DIFFERENT image, and it starts all over again. If one is lucky, Stage Four starts at some point once you get back from the original trip... sometimes it may kick-in very quickly again, and may even commence again as early as on the day of purchase of the original trip's purchase... OR... even during the original trip itself...

Extreme care and preventative measures must be taken by governments and medicos across the world, to prevent this horrible disease from being spread from person to person (and given the high rate of missing pets during this period of the disease,there's even suspicion of person-pets, pet-pet or other animal spread)... as it's been proven to be very contagious!!

It's ok! I have the cure. Simply use Firfox, rightclick on an image and select block images from boardgamegeek. It's that easy!
