The epic saga of BGG Zendo continues. Which student will rise to the top? And which ones will stay in their state of blissful ignorance, pretending to be geeks, but in actuality as far away from the Geek Nature as a military victory for the light side in War of the Ring. And the eternal question - will the Master ever get on with the game, instead of asking pointless questions? Only the great geek knows... and he's busy sifting through 100 backlogged "new game" submissions.

If you would like to join in this round, go ahead! No guessing tokens have been awarded yet. Check out the rules here:

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geekjournal.php3?action=viewcom...

Now, on to today's summary:

There was a decided lack of Geekiness with last round's lists. Looks like the Geek Nature is more elusive than we thought. Jon Wandke tried to test the Master's knowledge with some obscure games, this kind of insolence has earned him a day locked in the small bamboo "meditation hut", hopefully he will emerge tomorrow with a more humble nature.


Has the "Geek" nature:
Bang!, War of the Ring, High Society, Doom: The Boardgame (given)

Does NOT have the "Geek" nature:
Heroscape, Carcassonne, Power Grid, Ra, Modern Art (given)
Citadels, Magic: the Gathering, High Society (Scurra)
High Society (dakarp)
Doom: The Boardgame, GIPF, Scene It? (Rubric)
hedgehog's revenge, frik, cube farm (jwandke)
Puerto Rico, Balderdash, Tichu, Die Macher, Tikal (TomVasel)
Bang! (KentuckyKid)
Axis and Allies, Shogun, Fortress America, and Phase 10 (JoeSteadman)
High Society, Doom: The Boardgame (icheyne)

Mondo Lists:
Everyone please send me a private message, guessing whether the following list has (or doesn't have) the Geek Nature. Those that guess correctly will be awarded a coveted guessing camel ...er.. token.
War of the Ring, Doom: The Boardgame, High Society, Bang! (sdownin)

Rule Clarifications:
A couple of questions came up, I thought I would address them here. First, the rule doesn't depend on things that might change (such as hotlist ranking, number of Geeklists listing the game, etc.), since that might really mess things up. Second was the question of user-modifications that would change the properties of the game (like special variants or house rules). To keep things simple, assume the games listed are the "out of the box" versions, with no modifications.

And don't forget to post your new Master or Mondo lists below.
