The Geek Weekly Issue #3

by Brad Cummings




Welcome to The Geek Weekly(TGW), a weekly roundup of interesting things happening on BoardGameGeek.com. Every day hundreds of comments and posts are made on BGG; it's impossible to keep track of it all. That's why we've created TGW as a way to highlight great content from around the Geek.

We do our best to provide a varied and diverse look at BGG each week. Found a post that you think should be featured? Shoot us a Geekmail.

Thanks,
Brad

Board Games That Would Make Great Movies
With the tremendous flop of the Battleship film, Hollywood has perhaps soured on the idea, but BGG users have come together to propose board games that would make excellent films. Somehow the conversation turns to Samuel L. Jackson, though that may be because he is in every movie ever.

Adding Wings of War to...Everything!
Wings of War: Famous Aces is a popular dog-fighting simulation game that seems to be popping up with new theming all over the place (see Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game and Star Trek: Attack Wing).
