Those of you who use Facebook are probably familiar with the chain note that's been going around, "25 Random Things About Me." If not, here's an article from Time magazine on the phenomenon: http://www.time.com/time/arts/article/0,8599,1877187,00.html...

Personally, I think the author of that article is a bit of a party pooper. I found the lists to be interesting, and more often than not, pretty hilarious. Anyway, I got an idea to make a geeklist about 25 random things on Board Game Geek. And because it was supposed to be a chain letter, feel free to add your favorite game and random factoid.

"I love Agricola" can be rearranged to "A Gorilla Voice." I am not sure what this says about Agricola lovers.

According to Babelfish, "Die Macher" translates to "more macher" in English.

Ra is an ancient Egyptian sun god. In later dynastic times, Ra was merged with the god Horus, as Ra-Horakhty, which translates as "Ra (who is) Horus of the horizons." This was probably less marketable as a game title.

Universal Pictures is making this into a movie, with a script by Etan Cohen. Not to be confused with Ethan and Joel Coen - George Clooney will not be singing and Brad Pitt will not be playing an idiot in this film.

Almost 1300 versions of Monopoly exist, and 750 million people have played it. A large percentage of these people are assumed to have played it wrong, having participated in the "I found a bundle of cash in the parking lot" rule.


*Guilty as charged. I was 6 when I learned this rule. How was I supposed to know that the government doesn't deposit cash in parking lots?

There are 50+ Lord of the Rings themed games in the BGG database, of which War of the Ring is the highest ranked. Apparently, Lord of the Rings Trivia Game is less popular.

The Great Influenza pandemic of 1918 (also known as the Spanish Flu) killed an estimated 50 million people in 6 months and affected 20% of the world's population. So if you need a sense of urgency for treating those little innocuous-looking blue cubes, think of that factoid.

This appears on at least 15 geeklists that ask for games to play with the wife/girlfriend. So, let me suggest that future geeklist-writers on this topic just put Lost Cities as the first item, and get it out of the way.

This is the highest ranked game in the "educational" category. Does this mean the 775 games ahead of it aren't educational?

This is the highest ranking Comic Book-based game. Batman, despite ruling at the movie box office, is far behind with gamers. Batman: Gotham City Mystery clocks in at only #3772.

What's more random than Busen Memo?

According to this game, you can drive a train across the Great Lakes. Perhaps Alan Moon is hoping for an American Chunnel.

In case anyone's wondering how garbage actually gets turned into energy, according to Plasco Energy, an energy plant in Ottowa, they use "a unique plasma torch process that applies intense heat to waste materials in a completely closed, controlled, and oxygen-starved environment. With an output of mostly synthetic gas, used to generate electricity with an internal combustion engine, aggregate, which can be sold and used in asphalt, and potable water, this is definitely not your mother's incinerator."

Raise your hand if your mother had an incinerator. Anyone?

There is no actual city of Catan that was settled. But, there is a place called Gonzales Catan in Argentina.

This game has the most logged plays on BGG.

I, on the other hand, have never played this game and probably never will. Not my thing.

In Sumerian mythology, the Tigris was created by the god Enki, who ejaculated and filled the river with flowing water. Rumor has it that Enki was playing Busen Memo at the time.

Go can be played by small children. Raise your hand if this makes you feel inferior, either because:
a) You can barely play Go intelligently
b) Your own small children would never display enough concentration to play Go.

This is the highest ranked game with non-pimped animeeples. Reef Encounter holds the title for highest ranked game with non-mammal animeeples.

I randomly chose this game. Which coincidentally, could really use some player aids. Randomly, I would like to point out the uploaded files for Nottingham. Oh look! There's a file I uploaded with player aids for Nottingham! That could really use some thumbs, for my first ever file-uploading effort! How random.

Now for the actual random factoid about this game:
The name Nottingham actually came from a Saxton chieftan, who had the unfortunate name "Snot." The lands he ruled were thus dubbed "Snotingaham," or literally, "the homestead of Snot's people." At some point, the name morphed into "Nottingham."

There is a whole game mechanic category for "singing." Evidently, members of Board Game Geek don't enjoy singing so much, because Quelf is the highest ranked singing game. It is, however, more desirable than another singing game called Kill the Hippies.

"Yinsh" anagrams to "shiny." As in, "ooooh, a shiny new game to play. Must...get...shiny...object."

Twister can be played in bed! It's good to see that Milton Bradley is expanding into the adult sex toy market. Economy isn't doing so well, you know...
