Nice simple checkers variant. Quick and fun game.
Had this as a kid. I remember I particularly liked the silly looking plastic 'ogre' pieces for some reason. It would seem that it wasn't as successful as it's companion game Smess. Chercles almost never shows up on eBay, and for months, I couldn't find anyone else on the Internet with a copy.
Smess, on the other hand, is almost always on eBay, and has a PC version for the Zillions of Games program.

Bought this on the enthusiastic recommendation of a friend, This is one of his favorite games for the different mapboard each game, and the Good/Evil character changing.
I've only tried this once so far as a two-player game against said friend. It bogged down toward the later game as characters kept flip-flopping between Good and Evil, and this was dragging things out.
I'll have to try it again w. 3 or more. Hope my experience with this game will improve, as I had high hopes for it.

THE classic negotiation game design.

Only played once, years ago. I'm really bad at negotiation games, so I don't like playing them.

Note: Allan B. Calhamer also designed one other game called Hyperspace. A much less well-known game, as he tried publishing it himself and it was never picked up by any major game company.
I picked up a copy from the second Sid Sackson auction.

The only saving grace about this game as it applies to AH is that they didn't design it. They just republished it.
Which brings us to the next question:
-------WHY!!!!!!!------

This surely must be one of the games they force boardgame players in hell to play.

Pretty cool sci-fi race game. Rather chaotic. Has some teething problems with the rule book and components. Board is too large for convenient play.
Game length is rather long but it stays fun throughout. (It's all fun until someone loses an eyestalk!).
Hopefully, Kenzer & Co will be able to publish a second edition and fix up the rules and components issues.

As a long time fan of Carcassonne and other tile-laying games, I really like this one. Short, light game with an interesting card play mechanic added. (Now if they can just leave this game alone and not begin publishing a plethora of expansions for it...did I mention that I'm a Carc fan?)

Hasbro seems determined to publish a version for every City, Town, Hamlet, and Donkey Trail in America. Every Major Movie Franchise or Kid's Cartoon show. Every Special Interest Group's Special Interest. And just about every Organized Sport ever played by Man.

I keep wondering if they've come out with Afghanistanopoly yet.

Just how does Hasbro's research people come up with new topics to base new editions on? By browsing eBay??

A rather light SF wargame featuring Day-Glo Gummi-Bear Aliens. Only played it once so far (So many games, so little time!). The Monolith has an annoying habit of cutting off the view of parts of the board. I just leave the walls out and lay the roof section in the center.

A very good 'dungeon-crawl' game. And thankfully it isn't roll-and-move like Talisman. One of the worst-written rule books I've ever encountered.
I'd expect that kind of chatty, game-characters-teaching-players style from a kid's game, not something of this level.

Certainly not as good as the original Settlers and it's 2 expansions.
And it definitely has it's play balance problems.
Still, since this was not only an SF game but an SF Trading game, it was a must buy for me when it was released.

Very good 2-player adaptation to Starfarers. Indeed, it's even better then the game it's based on.

One of the best 2-player games I've played.

Like the Settlers of Catan card game there is less player interaction than the board games.

Several good features in the City. Gives neutral characters a place to go. Just don't run out of money while in the City or you could get stuck in there for quite a while.
(One of the Laws of the City: "It is illegal to be penniless. We have standards to maintain.")
High Mage is far too powerful and far to easy to become.

"The Game With Monster Trading Cards"!
Main problems are downtime for non-moving players and the game's very long playing times. Still a great game.
Would love to get a Gorgonstar edition.

Titan: The Arena
Excellent beer-and-pretzels fantasy card game.
(By the way: I would swear that the design of the Dragon spectator is stolen directly from the movie Dragonheart.)

Like many other reviewers here, reminded me of Metro. But much, simpler, lighter, shorter, and more fun to play. Some confusion involved with the Dragon tile rules. Also, the board's grid lines are way too faint, making it a bit difficult to place the tiles early in the game. I guess they didn't want to mess up the board's artwork.

Not so great in game play. Interesting to have a copy more for historical interest than anything else.

Long-time family favorite, ahead-of-it's-time tile-laying theme. Cool metal wrenches. Play frequently bogs down as players draw cards to fix their broken, leaky pipes. Was a lot more fun when I was younger.
