Having only recently joined this site, about three months ago, I have not really built up the courage to add to any geeklists/post on any forums. But slowly, reading a little here, laughing a little there, my confidence grew, and when Melissa posted a little game, I decided that I might give it a try. I was informed that "upwords" was not multi-dimensional so retracted my first attmept, but decided to give it another bash and then was rewarded, as people responed to my clues. I was, in a small way, acepted as a member of the Geek.

To my surprise I found, a few days later, a little microbadge. Who would have thought so tiny a picture would bring me so much joy? In honour of Melissa's benevolence, I propose a new game. Slighlty less structured, but one that allows you to show ingenuity at every step.

Connections is the name of the game. Choose a game that is in some way connected to the previous one, then argue why. Bonus points for strange/humourous/previously unkonwn links.

Here's a link to the inspriration, try it.

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/30542

P.S. I can't actually give out points, and am sadly bereft of Geekgold. By "points" I actiually mean thumbs", and by thumbs I mean "a thumb from me." But its better than playing Monopoly with people you don't like and house rules that mean it will never end.

As Long as we are talking about Lords, have you heard about the new.........




Edit: Changed from the 2005 game version to the 1993 version for a nicer picture, neither should be confused with the 1978 version which had a picture of the game spread out from far away..

This list has sexual type entries, might as well have "farting" in it also...
