Being a kid without a drivers license and disposable income to buy any games I want, a lot of my gaming is with grownups, my parents and other kids' parents.

In the weekend, while playing Gulo Gulo, I had an epiphany: I DON'T LIKE TO PLAY WITH GROWN UPS! It's time to stand up and speak up! It's time to shout out this secret shame!

Like any true prophet, I will now write down for you, dear readers, the contents of the revelation, formatted, perhaps inappropriately, as a geeklist.

Oh go on then....

1. Board Game: Diplomacy [Average Rating:7.09 Overall Rank:360]

I like to play with people who can agree on what game to play, without it becoming a major diplomatic incident.

You should see the grownups blah blah blah about player count and this game is too light, too heavy and "I don't like this mechanic" and that game takes too long blah blah blah. Just pick a game and get on with the fun.

2. Board Game: Listen Up! [Average Rating:5.54 Unranked]

I like to play with people who listen/pay attention to the rules explanation at least enough to not whine 3/4 of the way through the game, "You never told me that rule."

The grown ups care so much about winning they alsways seem to whine about stuff to explain away why they aren't.

I like to play with people who like open information. Haven't any of the grownups read that kid Clearclaw's stuff? Yeah I show my cards! I don't play games with hidden information, so get over yourself with all this "I can seeeeee youuuuuurrrr caaaaaards" whining. (UNO or Clue Jr. with open information: yeah baby, that's how I roll!)

Turns? I like to play with people who know it's cool to let their minds drift, who are comfortable enough with their own imagination to take time out from the occasionally stifling "rules" to let that little wooden cube become a rocket, that VP track disk be a princess in the dragon's lair. My turn? Your turn? Let's invent crazy stuff together and not worry so much about the procedure.

I like to play with people who aren't so locked into old, crusty habits that they still are curious to discover if gravity really works every-single-time. So I drop the bits on the floor over and over. Don't knock it until you try it, gravity rocks!

I like to play with people who are inspirted by music, people who are willing to sing outloud and celebrate the wonder of life anytime a song fills their heart and mind. You got a song in there? Share it!

(I personally like the Ants go Marching Two by Two; I always like to sing that when I play Memoir '44.)

I like to play with people who don't mind crying when the things don't go their way. Feeling it? Don't bottle that stuff up and let it come out like crazy passive aggressive bs. Yeah, when you sink my battleship I'm in touch with that pain.

I like to play with people who don't lecture me all them time and have to turn everything fun into something "educational."

I like to play with people who get that the differance between "work" and "fun" is that in "work" you have to finish it even if you aren't having fun. So I quit in the middle of stuff when my imagination drifts. Have you noticed how sometimes grown ups turn games into work?

Yeah, I said 26 reasons. But there are a lot less on this geeklist. The sun just came out here. The swing set, slide and monkey bars are calling my name...
