Con

Exactly as you think of the word now: Tricked. Scammed. Fooled. Still,every August, hundreds of dupes show up in Lancaster, PA, expecting to play games. Every November, it's Dallas, TX. When you hear there's going to be a con, there's going to be a con.

OOP

I goofed, big time (hence the CAPS.) We leave off the s as an inside joke (get it? even the oops has been botched! Ha!) "Unfortunately, this game is OOP. Hey, Z-Man, I'm begging you here. Can you reprint this?" Z-man is an admin and has editing privileges to other peoples' posts, but you almost have to beg to get his attention if you've made a mistake on something you've entered into the system.

Backstab

Ever try to stab someone with your back? Unless you're an acrobat, you're far more likely to hurt yourself than your target. Use this term to convey a desperate effort in a nearly hopeless situation. "Sorry, Fred, my position was crumbling in Austria-Hungary. I *had* to backstab."

Brainburner

A difficult game that causes your brain to "burn". However, good BGG form demands you use this sarcastically. It's accepted that the writer is using it this way, so no emoticons or italics are needed--it's insulting and patronizing if you do. "Wow, this one is a real brainburner." (To which you silently add after you read, "ha ha, good one. Maybe I'll pick it up for my non-gaming elderly in-laws.")

When talking with others about games a lot of time you'll see abbreviations like A&A or WotR or Soc. These are all code words that inside organizations (fake game makers, drug smugglers) use. Unless you wanna be caught reading their posts by the Geek Nazis that patrol the forums, I would avoid these posts at all costs.

FLGS - Family Living/Garage Space

Some people are lucky enough to have their own location that holds their games for them. Occasionally, someone will spontaneously make new games available, or add-on space to play games. Heck, I walked into my FLGS the other day and found a bunch of kids there, already playing!

Anytime you see someone complain about an FLGS, it's just because they're jealous that they don't have one, or theirs isn't as nice. Some people complain that their FLGS is overpriced, but that's the real estate market for ya! If you don't like someone else's, you're free to build one of your own!

A virtuoso fiddle performance is a thing of beauty. Just one person, one instrument, and infinite possible emotions to evoke. When a game is "too fiddly", it means that there is too much of that elegant simplicity.

Tom Vasel

As gamers age, they are often afflicted with an overwhelming sense of compulsion, obsession, and possession, ultimately becoming enslaved to games, hence the term Vasel, meaning slave or servant. Since all individuals are prone to this condition, a generic Tom is applied to the terminology. The name Tom is also a substitute for game.

Essentially, a Tom Vasel is a game slave or servant.

As the affliction progresses, most Tom Vasels tend to become prolific game reviewers, furthering the cause of the disease by spreading virus-laden writings and beliefs. It is at this stage that they become stars of the BGG (Big Gamer's Guild) community.

Most Tom Vasels soon come to recognize that this world is not their home, hoping for a better hereafter. The picture to the left is a depiction of a Tom Vasel prior to gaming ascendance.

Shill

When a person posts to a thread or list (like this one!) and uses a really high pitched voice when typing - which some find annoying. "Hey! Quit being so shill!"

The right thing to do is go ahead and click on the game and see what the person is so noisy about. It's the only polite thing to do. Maybe they need some help and that's why they're so shill!

Ameritrashers

The term is new, but the idea has been around for a while, since early Avalon Hill games made America the villain in several WWII games (and eventually their pro-Nazi stance forced them to shut down).

The term refers to gamers and games (called "Ameritrash" games) that openly attack ("trash") America or Americans, and not in the friendly "constructive criticism" way but in a way designed only to incite hatred, anger, and flamewars.

If you see anybody discussing Ameritrash or Ameritrashers the best thing to do is flag/hide/delete/red-button the thread so it disappears, and do not respond to their goads.

CCG

Con Card Game. Con card games are what they sound like - cons (see definition of "con" above). They lure you in with their interesting game play, cards that increase in value every year, and popular appeal (it's easy to find opponents for these games).

However, sooner or later true-blood Board Game Groupies realize they've been conned - they spent all that time playing card games when instead they could have been playing "real" games (meaning board games, of course).

train game

Light, popular games - so light and popular that you can pull them out in any group (gamers or non) and everyone will have so much fun that they will ask to play them all evening long one game after another (hence the term "train"). Like party games, but funner and lighter.

Age of Steam was the original train game. It is it often confused with "games about trains" but as you can see from the picture here, there are no train pieces at all in the game. The picture also illustrates the brightly colored pieces and simple design, which endears it immediately to kids. If you're having non-gaming relatives over for the holidays, Age of Steam is an ideal choice.

Since the popularity of Age of Steam, other games have appeared that attempt to hitch a ride on its coattails. These games have met universal scorn from Board Game Groupies, and have all gotten well-deserved low ratings. The best example of these "pretender" games is Ticket to Riding, with its 120+ minutes of game-play, heavy resource management, and agonizing decisions. Newbies who make one mistake are out of the game immediately. To make matters worse, it muddies the waters by having actual train pieces, unfortunately adding to the confusion between "train games" and "games about trains." (Luckily for the publisher, Days of Wonder, their profits have soared in spite of the expensive failure of TtRiding, due to the popularity of some of their other games, which I can't remember at the moment.)

The Aldie is the sites main bot for fixing bugs and what-nots.

You can also GeekMail the Aldie at anytime to let the site's Admin's know what's going on and to ask for microbadges or free .

While generally nice and well-meaning... the Aldie bot sometimes can be a bit negative.

The Puerto Rico Scandal

The fact that this remains the number one ranked game on this site is a subject of heated controversy. Basically, it was given ridiculously inflated ratings a few years ago by people who have since left the site. However, due to a bug in the Aldie-bot each attempt to correct the error in the database has been met with a 24-hour site outage.

As any Board Game Groupie will tell you, Puerto Rico is a despicable game about slavery, oppression, and exploitation during the benighted era of colonialism.
