Geeklist are, in my opinion, one of the absolutely best features of the geek. At their best, they include a concentration of information unsurpassed by other sources such as forum posts etc.

It is a shame that they are so short-lived.

Many lists, even very good ones, never end up on the front page and are thus hardly noticed by a majority of the geeks. This can be helped in some way, by changing your front page settings to showing "recent" geeklists instead of "hot", but it is my guess that few users have done this.

Some lucky lists do get classified as hot, and thus gets noticed by many more geeks, but even these lists die out very fast. It is a shame, in particular for game-focused lists that of course only can include games that are published. Duh. whistle So you might be looking for a medium weight five player racing game, and you find this great list that focuses on that exact subject, but it was done in 2006 and never updated, and is of little use of you now.

This list is a call for recognition of these great lists, in the hope that they might live again and get updated!

Please add lists that you think are great but are dead, and really should be continued.

And, if you think this is a good idea, please thumb it so that this list will not die the quick death of so many other lists.

Edit: And please check out the lists mentioned, and add content to them if you can! That was, after all, the idea of this list.

Edit2: The "big boxes for two" geeklist added below is now on the front page! This works people!!!

This was a great idea for a list I think, since I am looking for exactly that type of games. It was, sadly, never really noticed, but I hope it will be now!

I play a lot of two player games with my wife, and we are often somewhat short of time. Super fillers are great for us, since they are long enough to be really interesting but short enough to get played a lot. This list has not been updated since 2007, but really should be.

3. GeekList: HABA HABA HABA

A great list of HABA games, the publisher of some of the best children's games out there. It includes some great comments, with information hard to find otherwise.The OP has sporadically updated the list since it was posted in 2006, but the majority of the games are getting old. There have been many many new HABA games since this list was made, and they should be added!

I actually e-mailed the owner of this list just the other day and suggested he update it that I thought it was a GREAT list. Maybe if others encouraged him . . .

In my early days here, I think the lists that really sold me on the value of BGG were Glamorous Mucus's "Shines with Three" series (2004 and 2005). Up until that point, I had focussed primarily on highly-rated games which, for a variety of reasons (e.g. length, complexity), weren't optimal for our family. From the beginning, I "got" the two-player vs. multiplayer distinction, but I hadn't realized that three was tricky until I read Josh's lists. I think just about everything I've bought based on his recommendation has been a hit. Although I'll sheepishly admit that we still haven't played some of the earliest of those purchases (Clans got lost in the shuffle).

At any rate, I'd love to see these lists updated (or at least rediscovered).

I always found this EndersGame's Geeklist to be a very useful listing of the many very valuable BGG photo contributors. I've been adding folks to the list over the past year or so, just to have some place where their "career" contributions are recognized.

I think it was a bit of a shame that my competition didn't get enough hype. It was fun, but it could have been much more fun with more people participating.
I'll probably do this as soon as I have some GG amassed and I won't be tempted to buy new microbadges. Damn, my list is long...

I'd hoped this Geeklist would get a little more love than it did. This is a geeklist about the BGG users who are always there with an answer for questions on your favorite games. It seems like for many games there are one or two users who answer most of the questions, and I was hoping to get those good folks some recognition...

This list was my way of apologizing to the geek for some crappy images I uploaded before I had the ability to do better. I know there is more junk on this site that the contributors would like to forget.
Just come clean. You'll feel better, and we'll know not to hold it against you.

Yes, it is my own list, but the idea behind it was to find out where other people also got the cool things for their games also. I would love to find new "where did you get that?" items. Won't you continue it?

This is the only attempt I've found at making a complete geeklist of all Zoch games. They have obviously released a lot, but not more than can be included in a geeklist. This list should be added to.

OK so maybe not the greatest list out there but I discovered this list about lists needing to be continued and it inspired me to revisit this one of mine. I really liked making this list and it was even fun to make some updates and add items!

I had hoped that this geeklist would have taken on a life of its own..I stumbled across it a couple of years back, and it addressed my own quest to teach my youngins' how to play these games of ours...And I still think that it is a great idea for a geeklist.

Gamers doing what they can do best ... in a geeklist. Honestly, this list really got me hooked. Sometimes I couldn't even sleep at night trying to figure out the Buddha nature. I know there is Emoticon Zendo but it's just not the same than the one with pictures.

This geeklist is a game where you have to name a game (add it to the list) meeting some criteria set by the previous person. You then pick the next criteria. It's lots of fun, but has died temporarily when hard clues are posted.

You may also get a microbadge! (Disclaimer - not sure if Melissa is still giving these out)
