Hall of Fame

The game's best players are profiled in the Hall of Fame.

LaVonne Lemler, most recent inductee
For all of the fun of solving goos and the tension of the competition, one of the best things about Celebrity Goo Game is the community of people that you join when you play for a while. You get acquainted with some pretty nice people, and in this game, it's possible that no one is nicer than LaVonne Lemler. She's the first and sometimes only player to congratulate the winner of each season. She never has a bad word to say about other players' goo creations; she treats even the very difficult goos as a reason to push herself to play better. Players don't often see it in public, but she sends private messages just to be nice, like remembering anniversaries and celebrating birthdays. Even through personal transgressions against her and her family, like false accusations of cheating and a betrayal by a personal acquaintance, she has taken the path of forgiveness and civility. The game is a richer, happier experience because of the geniality that characterizes every interaction with LaVonne. more…
