Landry, if you have landed here by accident ... TURN BACK NOW!


A) This GeekList is for all of the members of 4G ... except for:



B) For some background on the point of this GeekList, see this:
Item for Geeklist "The Jack Vasel Memorial Fund Auction - 2016 - CLOSED! Time to Pay and Ship!"

Basically, 4G as a group gets to decide on a game that goes to Landry for her generous donation to the Jack Vasel Memorial Fund. So take a look at her profile, ask her questions if you want, and ultimately nominate one game by adding it as an item to this list. Thumb any other items you like.

Ultimately I will take those suggestions and make a poll. The final result of the poll will be Landry's 4G Gift!

Not for the game itself, but for the Broken Token Big Damn Crate organizer.

This game sounds like a game she might enjoy. We seem to have some similar tastes and this is my favorite game.

She says it's instabuy for her. I had a pleasure of talking with her privately and she's a big Stargate lover, as am I. So anything small up that way could be awesome for her. Too bad there are no good Stargate Games.

And I see she's got Scythe: Invaders from Afar listed high up, so if I can nominate two things also this. If not than Burano is my No.1 pick.

I would propose not a game, but a collection of expansions, possibly including:

Scythe: Invaders from Afar
Orléans: Trade & Intrigue
Snowdonia: Trans-Australian Railway & The Daffodil Line
Russian Railroads: Mini-Expansion

(Plus I like that thematically some are similar.)

She always needs more Orleans...

Add a few other promos or expansions from her wishlist to this too.

It is off list, but I see she likes sci-fi, has several sci-fi games, and also likes co-op games with her husband. The only quibble would be if they could get a GM, play solo, or handle the GMing themselves. Expected release January 2017, and I don't know if there is a way to ensure that she would still get it in the 1st wave.

Edit 1: Her profile explicitly says she's willing to accept off list items, and likes surprises. She's preordered Alien Uprising, among other sci-fi games, and it is a co-op game. Really, other than the difficulty of getting this to her, I think she'd love it.

Edit 2: I just double checked. The kickstarter said that fully half of the 70 scenarios should work solo.
