(Mar. 2011): I'm using the updated Steam rules. I picked it up primarily so that I could play with my wife, and I'm hoping we'll get the hang of it soon, unfortunately, you have to jump in with the advanced rules, which is a bit overwhelming at first.

After one play, I found it fun, but a bit more complicated that I thought it would be. Definitely a stretch to call this one a family game. I'm looking forward to playing it more.
UPDATE: I'm bumping it down a notch to 7. I like it well enough, but it's kind of stressful to play, to be honest. Maybe it's because I always seem to lose so horribly.
UPDATE (Sept. 2011): Back up to an 8! This game shines with 2 players, and since my wife really likes it, that makes for better gaming experiences.

Only one play, and I was starting to come down with a flu at the time. Unfortunately, that unfairly makes me connect this game with a headache, so I'm not willing to give it a rating just yet.
UPDATE (Nov. 2011): I FINALLY got this one to the table with a full complement of six players, and I really liked it! I know Gerdt's rondel games get more complex and sophisticated than this, but I really appreciated the straight-forward rules.

The new characters make it worth picking up. The new cards don't improve it much, in my opinion, and I prefer it with 7 rather than 8 players, so the extra renegade doesn't do much for me, either.

Excellent game. The time it takes to set up and play has been gradually increasing as I've worked through the scenarios, but it's still engaging throughout.

UPDATE (Oct. 2010): I'm sad to drop this down to an 8, but I just can't seem to get it to the table anymore, and I'm sure could if I really pushed for it. That doesn't mean it's not an awesome game, though.

I've only played the base set so far (Hoax vs. Vulca), But I'm really enjoying it. I'm rating it a 7 for now, but it could easily go up once I've tried out a few other races.
UPDATE: I now have a couple more races (Mimix & Khind), and it's just as interesting as ever.
UPDATE (Jul. '08): I'm upping this to an 8. I guess that means I should pick up the rest of the decks!

I guess this is my first "proper" consim. It took a little while for my non-wargamer brain to wrap itself around the rules, but the game played surprisingly smoothly once that happened. If I end up buying a "real" wargame any time soon, it'll probably be one in this series.

Great game! I've only played it with three players, and I can only image it gets better with more players.
UPDATE (May '09): After playing with 5, I'd say it's even more deserving of an 8.
UPDATE (Apr '12): I've been getting this to the table more often lately, and the more I play it the more I like it. Having at least one expansion to bring it up to 6 players is a must. It's a solid 9 now, and could foreseeably enter the exclusive realm of the 10s at this rate.

I've played my fair share of Cribbage over the years, mostly with my cousin while we were growing up. For some reason, even though the game is so random, I could rarely manage to beat him. We still had a lot of fun, though. It's been superseded for me by a lot of other card games, but I still play it a fair bit on my Palm. It saves dealing with the finicky scoring. My Palm tends to beat me as well. I guess I just suck at this game. Oh, and '29' boards are the coolest way to play.

It took me a while to figure out the rules, especially with all the icons on the cards that are hardly even used during gameplay. Once you get past the rules, this is a quick and fun card game with some refreshing mechanics.

Just because I rate this a 10, doesn't mean I'm any good at it. When I play this game, I admit to being absolutely overwhelmed, but also completely fascinated. The idea of emergent complexity captivates me; it's like playing a fractal!

I won this in a contest, but it's actually a pretty neat little game. The mechanics are unlike anything I've come across before. The card play is a bit opaque at first, but it's actually surprisingly thematic once you get into it.
UPDATE (July '11): I've played it 4-player partnership, as I believe it was designed to be played, and it definitely was my best experience of the game so far. If you're on the fence about this one, try it this way!

More complex than the theme would imply, it's still not too difficult once you figure out what all the cards mean. Our first play we completely misunderstood how the worms work, but we had a good time anyway. Now that we know the worms rules (kinda like No Thanks!, another great game), it's even better.

Nice little abstract. I like the game, but I mainly picked it up because I won an Ingenious Puzzles prototype autographed by Dr. Knizia himself and I just had to try it out! Update: after a few more plays, it's growing on me. It's still not quite an 8, though.

A bit longer than I'd like, and maybe a bit too random (although that could be a result of my inexperience), but nevertheless a really fun little game.
UPDATE: it gets quite a bit quicker once you get used to all the cards, which makes the randomness less of an issue.
UPDATE: I'm moving this up to an 8. Maybe it's because I keep winning all the time, but that in itself tells me that it's not as random as I first thought.
UPDATE (Apr. '09): A welcome discovery! My wife really likes this one. It's definitely staying an 8 for now.
UPDATE (Nov. '09): With both expansions, this game has TONS of replayability. This game has solidified its position as an 8.

The new cards and homeworld are great-they just add more to a game I already love, so that gets a 10.

The best expansion for Settlers, in my opinion. Enough new stuff to keep it interesting, but without the rules overload and randomness that tends to bog down Cities and Knights.

Such a cool game. After four plays, it's already becoming one of my all-time favourites.

Fantastic! Simple and quick to explain and play, but the race/power combos give lots of replayability. I'll definitely bring this out for the Carcassonne/Settlers crowd, to give them a taste of something new.

(Apr. 2011): It's hard to to know when to pick a leader, but I tried it a couple of times in my last game and I won, so I guess they aren't so bad!
UPDATE (Aug. 2011): I don't bring it out when teaching, but whenever all the players have played before, there's no reason not to include it. I tend to buy a couple of leaders per game, and it seems to work out for me.

This game seems to be infinitely expandable! This adds a little more chaos to a game that some might think is too predictable.
UPDATE (Apr. 2011): I'm considering adding this in by default. I think it's probably simple enough to introduce to new players.

June 2012: I finally got his one to the table after owning it for five years! I actually liked it quite a bit. Even though the theme isn't even managing to fulfill a basic mnemonic function, it's still a good excuse to have a cup of chai and put on some Bollywood music.

Nice little portable abstract. Great for playing in the pub, as it's beer-proof! It's been pretty much entirely overshadowed by Hive for me in the pub-games category, though. It does have some nice solitaire puzzles you can play with it, so I'll keep it around.

This'll probably get an 8, or maybe even a 9 once I play it a bit more. The forthcoming mounted board will deal with the major shortcoming in this game.
UPDATE (Dec. '10): I'll give it an 8 for now. I definitely think that there's something to this game, but it's long enough that I'm not sure how often I'll get to play it.

I'm a big fan of Coloretto, and this 'sequel' of sorts doesn't disappoint. The money actions add a few extra tactics that make it worth picking up even if you have Coloretto, and the cute-factor can come in handy when trying to convince recalcitrant lady-types to play.
