Thank you Secret Santa 2008!

This game is a brain burner, but the cards move it out of the abstract realm, and the play time really is in the 20-30 minute range.

I used to own this set, in the classic SPI "detergent box", but could never find opponents and sold it.

Now I have a ziploc set of them and can solo them. Life is good.

A decent little card game. The run of play is not difficult, and the only thing you need to remember is what your opponents still have in their hands. Works well as a kids game, light starter to a gaming night, or something to finish off your gaming night.

A very clever game - only being able to place your pieces corner to corner allows opportunities for your opponents to get into your territory. A very clever game.

I like this much better than the original Blokus - in part it's because it's harder to analyze the board position, and unlike the original, flipping a piece over or twisting it this way and that trying to figure out where it can go is a lot harder. I like abstract games in general, but I don't like pure abstraction - I like an element of "luck".

This game is a great filler, and appeals to the "all or nothing" part of me. Yes, the dice introduce some luck, but it's really all about probability...

I've played this game many times with different numbers of players. It has a place in my gaming closet, but doesn't get a lot of table time.

The expansion cards remind me a lot of the roles/buildings in San Juan oddly.

I have the FFG edition with the Citadels: The Dark City.

Update 26 Feb 2012: I think that my days of playing Citadels are over. I spent most of the last game I played hoping it would end soon. I'm actually sorry to say that as it's a game that I've had a lot of fun with over the years. Oh well.

Update 28 May 2012: I thought maybe it would still be ok 2-player, but I think the magic is gone.

A solid game - lots of tactical decisions to make each turn of the political phase, and a need to keep an overall stratgey going. The requirement to produce enough farm resources to maintain your citizen level (and thus not incur a penalty) is a nice added touch. Definitely a keeper in my collection.

With promo cards.

This game is a nice thinky take-that filler. Although card games are often not as complex as their inspirations, this one is decidedly light compared to DS.

This is a gem of a light card game. It's mostly unpredictable and drives the analysis-paralysis crowd apopleptic - worth getting if only for that! As a friend of mine put it "It's like hitting your fingers with a hammer while you're on morphine - you know it hurts, yet somehow it doesn't."

"This game lets you fill the need to play a game with hexes and dice and movement points and what have you and I don't have to play any war games" - my wife.

The premise is hilarious, and the game play works, but there's just a lack of dynamism here. I may explore some variants at some point to resurrect this game from the dust collecting pile.

Stole this great quote from user sobriquet - "Yeah, so I don't think Monopoly is very good any more... so what? It was a huge part of my game playing childhood, and I'm sure I owe my enjoyment of the hobby to it, at least to some extent. So bugger those who slag Monopoly -- rate it poorly, sure, according to your enjoyment, but why slag it?"

I first played this at BGG.Con 2009, with an initial rating of 7.

It's a nicely crafted game, and while it owes an homage to Puerto Rico in a lot of its design elements, in execution it's quite different (as one might expect).

Money is tight in the early game and looser in the latter half of the game, but VP are always the key. Eyes on the prize...

I really enjoy this game. There are enough decisions to make it interesting, and just enough luck to kill most analysis paralysis.

That said, I like Web of Power better (although this plays with 2 players) and Thurn & Taxis is great.

Update: Jan 2009. The new Paris Paris expansion might save this from gaming obscurity.

I really like this game - the cards add just a light element of luck because you never know what you'll draw. But that aside, hand management is key, as is managing your hero cards. Nice blend of strategy and tactics.

This game lacks any player interaction - there is no negotiation or trading, it's strictly a roll and move system, and anything that happens to you is a result of the game (through spaces on the board or cards) doing it to you. The other element is that selling wool is always profitable, so really you want to min/max your sheep buying/wool selling anytime you have the chance. Nevertheless, it's a great souvenir from Australia.

What a splendid game - if you like abstract games with a good theme, this is great! Plays in parters with 4, and has a very clever mechanism to play with 3. Components are very nice.

If you want something less expensive, find a copy of Cheapass' Very Clever Pipe Game
