After posting a comment for Amun-Re on a recent geeklist about a very famous session report I got to thinking about how many new Geeks have probably never read it and are missing out big time. Then I thought about how many hilarious, useful, informative things I've missed since I only started posting regularly in '09. This my friends, will not do.

Please add old jokes or interesting discussions that you think all the newer BGG members should be exposed to. It will be interesting to see what kinds of things I've missed out on by not becoming a BGG sooner!

Here you can find the legendary trashing video from Tom Vasel. A trashing so thorough it required a shameful apology which you can see here.

"Sometimes, a guy just needs to have a cat ground. But what do you turn to when you need to perform such a procedure? Games, of course! This is a list of games that I've tested as cat grinders and my various opinions of them."

Also Games as Cat Grinders - 2nd Installment
"This list includes additional cat grinders and cat grinder related products that have been released since the original list was published."

This list isn't complete without a link to Poisson d'Avril. Undeniably the greatest game ever made, and is so rare that very few have seen it.

I hardly see this mentioned anymore. Read the reviews, comments, etc. You won't be disappointed!

This may look a little self-serving because it's my list. BUT - it links to a bunch of excellent lists done by two BGG wargamers about wargames and the Art of War. Rather than make eight separate entries on this excellent list, I thought I'd just put this one up.

The lists are from:

Christopher's are from 2008 and 2007;
and

Tom's are a series of six geeklists from 2004, before most of us including me were on BGG.

Well actually comments. The one thing I'd tell a BGG n00b is to check the comments on the games. Reviews often end up being too positive, but if you check the ratings and people's comments about the games, there is a good chance you'll get a much better idea if it works with your preferences.

(sorry to get all serious on y'all!)

Play By Forum

One of the most fun things to do on the Geek is to Play-By-Forum. If you look at the the Forum-part of any game, you will see far to the right a "Play By Forum" link. For most games this is empty, but some game are really active here.

I have to point out one of the most active games in this respect: Battlestar Galactica. About a 100 new games are started each year. If you want to sign up for a game, visit the BSG PBF Wiki. This also has links to all of the games that are played up to now.

No, really what is your game REALLY worth on BGG? Market place values can be um, over-inflated. This cool app tracks market place SALES. Great for reality checks.

EDIT: FOUND IT

note, that some listings are bundles from auctions w/ the 'main game' taking the lead-read the mouseovers for further information.

And yes, whether you "taunt" or are the "strong silent type", it is ALWAYS better to give than to receive and TOTALLY make someone's day by sending them something off their wish list. Example:
