* Here is a list of things that are blue and round. Please add more!

This is red and round!

This is also red and round!

* I'd like for the things added to be blue and round.

Well why not expand the definition of the list to include red?

This is blue and square! That's kind of round?

* No, that's square.

How about this! This is round.

* No, that's triangular. BLUE and ROUND, please.

This is red and hexagonal but if you squint it's kind of blue and square.

* Folks, this isn't hard. BLUE. And ROUND. Here is a list of non-blue, non-round things I've removed.

Check out this crazy story about a yellow, triangular thing I brought to work! All my co-workers think I'm evil and twisted and scary now!

Here's a blue and round thing!

* Not only is not not blue, it's already on the list of things I removed before for not being blue or round.

This one is red and round!

* DAMMIT PEOPLE BLUE AND ROUND.

Geez, way to be a List Nazi, you List Nazi.

A couple of other games that fit your criteria, that I like are Set and Quiddler. I was lazy and linked to the company so I should mention Five Crowns is meh. Xactica is terrible (IMO) and I haven't played the others.

LOL, when I put together a similar list a few years ago, I didn't allow outside submissions. I just let people make suggestions in the comments and if I deemed it worthy, I added it.

Crack that whip! People might complain, but keeping a tight control over submissions is the only way to create a really useful list of this type. I'm glad you are starting up another one; my old one is really out of date. And $15 is probably a good cutoff point now rather than $10, due to inflation.

This gave me a good laugh. In my last geeklist contest one of the games the contestants had to identify was Sjoelen. As usual, the geeklist header reminded users not to post hints, clues, or spoilers. The first comment under Sjoelen was "What is the English word for Sjoelen?" Lucky for me the user deleted it as soon as I geekmailed them.

This whole idea gives me an idea for a geeklist experiment. Keep your eyes peeled for my next list it could be legendary.

If I've learned anything from this experience, it's that 2F needs to get Felix the Goddamn Cat in the Goddamn Sack back in print.

Haha. I quickly perused your list and thought, "What does this have to do with anything?"

I love the microbadge idea you had. Those posts with the user sporting a microbadge of the game they're decrying really cracked me up.

This could be one of the most entertaining (and confusing) geeklists I've ever made.
