Welcome to the first Annual Nerd-tivity contest!

It’s December, which means many of you have now entered into the full frenzy of the holiday season. First and foremost, you’ve handled that BGG Secret Santa Stuff. And then (reluctantly perhaps ) you’ve put up the tree (or are thinking about it). You’ve put fresh candles in the menorah or kinara. There’s that big tangle of lights you’ve been working on… getting to work. And, of course, all that shopping. But…

But…

Have you set up your Nerd-tivity scene?

Wait… What?... You don’t know what that is? Well…

From gallery of Gee Whiz


A Nerd-tivity scene is simply a Na-tivity scene composed of all things geeky.

From gallery of Gee Whiz


To participate simply add an item to this geeklist which includes a picture of your nerd-tivity.

You may post multiple entries, but only one prize per participant.

Non-Christian holiday scenes are also highly encouraged. For example, I would love to see Kylo Ren lighting a menorah for the Festival of Lights.

PRIZES!

The Nerd-tivity that is voted the best will receive 100GG and all of the GG tipped to this list.

Second place will receive 100GG

Third place will receive 50GG

Best use of a single theme (e.g. all He-Man) will receive 50GG


Winners to be determined on Christmas day in some totally fair manner that I don’t yet know, but I am sure one of you will tell me how to do it in the comments or a GM (hint, hint).

This is my first ever contest, so any suggestions on how to make it better are welcome and appreciated.

Congratulations to the winners!

When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.

Okay, so the boxes are already down here in the living room for a week, but I haven't got the time yet to get everything set up. Maybe today?

 


I'll update this item when I got everything set up.

[EDIT]
 



I even got a video for you folks. As far as I know BGG doesn't allow me to upload videos and share in this geeklist item so I used an external website called sendvid.com. You got to trust me here if you want to see the video:
http://sendvid.com/k1fxagq2

I've showed it, now it's your turn!

[EDIT2] Btw I know that this is not a nativity scene, but this is what I have instead of a nativity scene. It may not qualify as an entry in this contest, but I'll leave that up to the OP and the voters.

As a good youth pastor, I love to find new unique nativities, and this contest made me think of what might be the most obvious idea of all--a nativity made out of board games!

And so here we have it:
Manger - A Game For Good Christians (More specifically, "The Ark" box)
Baby Jesus - Evil Baby Orphanage
Mary - Pandemic: The Cure
Joseph - Star Wars: Jedi Unleashed
Mary's Donkey - Smart Ass
Angel - Regnum Angelica
Wise Man 1 - Splendor
Wise Man 2 - Brass: Lancashire
Wise Man 3 - Power Grid
Nearby Inn (with no room) - Agricola
Shepherd - Four Tribes
Animals - Fun Farm

The fellowship of the Christmas tree

It's nothing amazing but, this is how I decorate for this holiday modest.

I live in a small apartment and there's no space for a proper Christmas tree, my AU/NZ Santa inspired me to create this budget Christmas tree, to celebrate with my husband and all my plushies.

First, it should go without saying that this is not meant to directly represent a nativity scene, as obviously, dragon eggs are not baby Jesus. Rather, I'm calling this a Holiday Special Edition Tribute to the Miracle of the Dragon Birth:

From gallery of jennj


My family of three plays A Game of Thrones: The Card Game (Second Edition) on a weekly/regular (near-weekly) basis, and over time we accumulated our fair share of mini Funkos, as well as a Funko Iron Throne. (We play for rights to sit our representative Funko on the throne. I feel like I can share this with you guys.)

Anyway, I realized we own enough funkos to put this together. I glued together a small pyre and found a cheap birdhouse for the background, and here we are.

Some more, unedited pictures:
The unedited version of the above
A different angle
A better view of the "floor"

Games used: Dixit (don't ask me which, I keep them shuffled together), Skat, Droggn (i.e. playing Tarot cards), two different fortune-telling Tarot decks, Catan, Księga Magii (an old childish junk that I doubt ever made it to BGG), Morels (Polish edition) and - but of course - two standard decks of playing cards.

For those who'd like to point out Judgement overhead - the 20 of trumps is called an Angel in Swiss Tarot (source). And yes, the shooting star is flying upwards, couldn't find an appropriate picture

Oh, and the gifts of the Magi are:
- gold (represented by the golden bells of Skat)
- frankincense (represented by 2 of wands, which looks kind of like burning incense)
- myrrh (represented by a rose, for its smell - best similarity I could come up with).

Well, this was fun laugh

This isn't a nativity, but we put together a tiny tree with expansion boxes we weren't using. Next year's should be much more impressive!

Sorry to repost this, but I accidentally buried it in the comments section of Maria's beautiful scrabble nativity!

Let the Voting Begin!

Please vote for your favorite Nerd-tivities. You may choose up to three, if you can't make up your mind.

The numbers in the poll correspond the the Geeklist numbers for easy reference. I excluded Lenny's and my own entries, which is why a few numbers are missing.

Poll closes on January December 29, so you have a few days after the whirlwind of Christmas to make your picks.

Please help spread the word to get folks to come back and vote.
