Too much downtime, nothing more to do than rolling the dice - push your luck my ass.

If you don't have enough of this at your job, here's a game where you serve the boss, develop "great" ideas and have them scratched out by other people.

Austrian politics were actually more fun than portayed in this game.

Complete non-sense card game. I have yet to see a game which isn't decided by luck of the draw. This game isn't bizarre, strange or weird, it's crap.

Complete absence of game box, ergo no serious looking dude.

Lack of prestige points.

Brown colors only optional.

Avoid sitting to the left of a newbie.

I want tough decisions every turn!

During play you'll often think: "What a waste of mice."

Who can consider Knizia to be a serious (or even seminal) game designer, when he blatantly rips off Tetris? What is next Street Fighter 2: the Board Game? Grab into the bag and pull a punch?

This is Lost Cities for 3 and 4 players. If this information didn't scare you off, let me add that it is a really dull game. I played a similar game as a kid, only with flowers. You might as well also buy this for you children, but don't expect a brain burner. It's like playing Skip-Bo with a board.

This completely random game plays like Candy Land (draw a card, match colors), only that calculating the points takes as long as one actual play. Would be more fun if you had to convert the results from Polar to Cartesian Coordinate.

I consider this game to be a parable on life: Move around and lose money.

Actually the Soviet Russian version of this game called "State Monopoly" is much better, plays faster and usually still has the same outcome as the American edition: Players roll the dice to determine who gets to be the state (or bank). The state wins. If the Perestroika card is drawn all players (including the state) lose.

Yet another dice-rolling game, which seems to borrow from Can't Stop. What do people get from those?

Oh gosh, I played it and it's really bad. No fun at all and winning is essentially at the sake of the other players.

[i]Old comment: I will never play a game which incorporates slavery in such a naive way.

Very similar to Tic-Tac-Toe, you're trying to "outthink" your opponent(s), which results in an utterly boring tile-laying practice.

Boring and made completely redundant by Battlestar: Galactica.

Not a game, but torture. Apparently many euro designers like this game, or it seems, as it's "mechanisms" are copied so much. See Spiel des Jahres 2008.

Never before has gaming's main demographic - ageing white men - been so purely targeted as by this game with its racial slurs and paedophile artwork.

Perfect game to drag out the fun before going down to serious business, i.e. playing a board game.

A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

If you want to bore your friends with brainless strategy and Snakes and Laddersque gameplay, then apply this "great gateway game" on them.
