I like Geeklists, I have created quite a lot of them. Looking back at some of the ones I have done I came up with an idea for a challenge. One for me and everyone who dares to post an item.

The first person to add an item to this list has to suggest a topic and I will create a geeklist based around it. The thing is though, by adding an entry you are agreeing that you will create a geeklist based on the topic the person after you chooses and so on.

be interesting to see how far this can go.

made a comment about certain subjects having been done to death in Geeklists. One of the examples he gave was lists of Gateway games. I saw it as a bit of a challenge and said I could make a list about gateway games that was original. The result was here.

Gateway Games or We have already seen this list a zillion times

So lets see how many lists will come of this.

When you have finished your list (Hoping I won't be the only one to do this), come back and post the link in this list.

You could create a geeklist that lists all of the geeklists that list gateway games, to prove Blott's point.

In some games, players have to count something several times during the game. For example, in Acquire, whenever you buy or sell stock in a company, or a company is eaten, you have to count the number of tiles to determine how much money goes where.

So, I'd like to see a list of games in which you must count, and recount (and recount) things at various points during the game.

Let's have a geeklist about games where players can enhance the gaming experience by making sounds / shouting stuff out. Think "Mancato!" in BANG!, or making sheep noises in Agricola. I find it helps, anyway.

In honor of your time in Vegas, how about creating a Geeklist that matches the casinos of the Sin City (both past and current) to the board game that best exemplifies them. Something along the lines of "If casinos were boardgames..."

Okay then, mr. Futsie. Sounds like 'Foetsie', which is a dutch term for 'gone' or 'disappeared'.

So, let's have a geeklist about things that disappear. Or have disappeared. Possibly under mysterious (or not so mysterious) circumstances.

No one objected to you taking a second turn, so I might as well take one myself. However, this time, instead of going before you, I'm after you, so now it's my turn to give you a challenge.

You asked me to make a geeklist with games about soup. Now I return the favor, by asking you to make a geeklist, with games about salad.

Of the various games about salad I could have chosen for my geeklist item, I chose Kakerlakensalat, because it's compatible with Kakerlakensuppe, which is on the soup geeklist, you had me make.

Edit: After looking at the individual games that initially came up, I realized not all of them were truly about salad, so I ask that you make a geeklist of salads, vegetables, and fruits, instead of just salads.
