I did a geeklist a couple of years ago asking people to list their favourite game. I then trashed that game coming up with a reason why it was rubbish. I had a lot of fun, people reading it had a lot of fun and I think it’s time to do it again, sort of.

This time though I thought everyone could join in the fun. The idea is simple, trash the game the poster in front of you posted, use your imagination and come up with a reason why it’s a rubbish game. The more preposterous and ridiculous the reason the better.

Then when you have finished trashing it say why your chosen game (yes you need to pick one too) is so great. Then sit back and wait, till it gets trashed too.

Best trasher wins a prize (in line with original list). (Should I just give it to Wendell now? )


I am the only judge and my decision will be final and if you don't like it, go get your own geeklist.

(link to original list What's your favourite game? Win Geek Gold The Winners )

People its not a slag off games you don’t like list. It’s supposed to be a fun list. If you want to join in the rules are simple. Trash the last game listed in any way you like, then list a game for the next poster to trash.

I know the excitement has been building (and the list has been dying) so here we have the results. Awards are being made in several different categories.

The worst pun in the list award: Goes to

for putting is it like monopoly all over the place. I know in this community, that's about as bad a put down as you can give a game, but how about some variety. Would it have hurt to throw in a 'Is it like Risk (or Clue, or Game of Life or Candyland) at least occasionally for variety.

The I can actually read and understand the rules award: Goes to

An Indiana Jones movie in a box! This one has great thematic play,a great risk vs. reward mechanism and the possibility that your character won't make it out alive. There's plenty of ways to die in this one, and the awesome components add to the excitement of the race against time. Lots of fun for 45 minutes of play time.

Prepare to get 8-Miled!

Yeah, the platters are thin and warped and the chits are small and hard to tell apart. Regardless, I don't think anyone on this site is petty enough to dismiss a game because of below-average components (especially an older game).

Yeah, 2d6 determine nearly every important action in the game. This game is still the epitome of awesomeness. If it weren't crazy-random then the geek with a baseball bat on a 10-speed Schwinn would never have a chance against Genghis Khan wielding a flamethrower. But, damn it, that geek has a chance and he's switching to a lower gear to came at you bro!

Seriously. You can't hate this game. It's the #1 game on BGG which means deemed the most worthy by all of us. Insulting this game would create some sort of vortex where you actively discredit all of us by speaking out against it. Do you seriously want to risk creating a vortex discrediting all of us just for the sake of a thumb? A vortex people! Sometimes it is just better to walk away.

This, this is a game! Defend America against evil from all sides. Roll buckets of dice. Zap your opponents from far away. Prove that when the going gets tough, the tough turn 747's into supersonic bombers and bomb their enemies into the dust.

This game is the standard-bearer of an entire genre of gaming! Sure this is the pinnacle of gaming excellence...

A king amongst games, or rather a 14 dan ninja 6 star general amongst games. You've got a modular game board for replay ability and flexibility and creativity, little plastic tanks. PLASTIC TANKS!! Lot's of expansions for extra awesome and more plastic tanks! The design is beyond awesome in terms of beauty, the hexes, little plastic soldiers, TANKS! Different forces have different sculpts so there are many different types of tanks. OH THE TANKS!! There is even an expansion with toy planes in it...

OHMYGOODNESSTOYPLANESANDTANKS!!!

...I need some alone time.

Speaking of Axis & Allies, what a thing of beauty such as this. A chance to fight all the good, unfinished fights from World War II (such as whether or not that German Aircraft Carrier (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_aircraft_carrier_Graf_Ze... for more information) would have helped the German Navy win the war). Or, just Infantry Push your way to yet another victory!

Ahh Descent, it's really more than descent you know? It's AWESOME. As the Overlord it's sooo much fun smashing those pitiful heroes in the face! Or as the heroes to rise above the challenges and show the Evil Overlord what a real pansy he is.

Is there any other game that allows you to play out the history of a great star empire in under 30 minutes (5 minutes for experienced players) per player? I didn't think so so just ignore that next game on your wishlist and buy the expansion Eclipse: Rise of the Ancients or another copy.

Plus two expansions and two main copies of the game allows for 18 players to play! 10 expansions and 10 primary copies of the game allows for 90 people to play which finally makes use of those alliance rules!
