The idea of this list is simple...choice a game in my collection and said why you hate this game. the next choice a game in the people making the critic and make the same with your collection. And go on.

Well..waiting for the critics

Alright back to the original intention of the geeklist, which I think could be quite funny...

Jose, I hate Uno. I'm sorry pal, but it's just such a boring game with an utter lack of any real decision-making. Not to mention the fact that the game wants you to play until one player has something like 500 points which could take a year and a half of non-stop play to attain.

There are variants on the main game that I find tolerable, but this sorry excuse for a filler game is a dud. And that's why I hate your game!

gulp Ben, although it's not my least-favorite game in your collection (by a hair), it's probably the one you rate the highest above me.
Apples to Apples! The party game with no player interaction! Each player gets to be the judge, and choose the winner of the round by whatever arbitrary whims strike him or her at that moment! ...which can very specifically include, "She's close to winning, so I'm not picking my favorite, because it's probably hers." It could be fun in spite of all this if it were 10% the length it is, but let's drag it out until one player has 10 points! Woohoo! Now a 6-player game can take as many as 51 turns... of selecting a card... tossing it out there... waiting for the judge to pick arbitrarily.... snore

It claims to be a 30-minute game, but it consistently seems to trickle out to two hours, regardless of the group with whom I'm playing it. ...and no, I'm not the one holding up the game. I'm typically the first one with a card down, and my plays only get faster as I get more bored.

For a much more functional take on the "arbitrary judging of people's choices" mechanism, try X-Machina, which forces the players to market their crazy choices.

Nathan, I hate this game because of its pompous use of the ampersand character to represent the Latin 'et' in 'et cetera'
Also, it was really really really mean to me that one day in high school on the bus when my thermos leaked in my lunch bag and made a big wet spot on my pants.

Hate's too strong a word. This game just disappointed me. I was really excited by the theme, loved the idea of first evolving your brain and then evolving a civilization. However, it is yet another experience game from this designer that's too random with too little attention paid to balance. And the end game can just go on and on and on as you wait for the right cards to turn up.

yuk This game was a really bad experience. One of the worst gaming experiences where I could lay the blame at the feet of the game. And yes I think that AP induced game length is the game's fault. It could be that with a lot more plays and with a group that was willing to tolerate the investment this game could shine but that will never happen in my lifetime.

Steve,

What were you thinking! Cranium?
You need to teach the kids a real game; get them prepared for life.
I'd suggest Twilight Struggle.

The problem with Cranium is that you shell out the money and everyone grows up and no one wants to play it again.

And that's why I hate your game...

I hate your game because...


My parents like games, but they will only play certain games at a time. They can't stand anything but Scrabble right now. The first time I played again with them recently was okay until the end, when it just got too dull to be enjoyable. Now, it's all they ever want to play. "Let's play a game," they say. "As long as it's not Scrabble!" I say. "Nevermind," they say, "let's not play a game."

In fact, right now, as I am typing this, my mom is talking about it in the background. Her obsessions are usually out-of-hand, but I can not take playing this game any more when it gets this bad.

I don't think this game will ever appeal to me again. I don't quite see why you gave this game a 10 rating. I reserve that kind of rating for GOOD games.

I got to play the other contestants, among which was Einfach Genial (Ingenious) which is a great game, and I also played TtR which was absolutely terrible.

I remember finding this at the thrift store and thinking....hey maybe this is as fun as Scrabble(which is another game I find ok). Wow did that first game last a long time. The building up of words gets very repetitive and the scoring is terrible. I later gave this away, kept the Crown Royal Bag the tiles were stored in, and spit on the side of it to show much I despised it!

Gah! Arkham Horror! I bought that, and I got tons of cards and chits and investigator sheets and a rulebook, but I think they forgot to pack the game in the box, because I sure couldn't find one.

Arkham Horror is the poster boy for the sentiment "a great theme doesn't make a great game."

The theme is terrific. The game is practically nonexistent--your choices boil down to "do I want to go to Area A and have something random happen, or do I want to go to Area B and have something random happen?" Add a soul-crushing amount of bookkeeping to make things even less fun.

You want theme? In the time it takes to play a short game of Arkham Horror, you can read three or four of Lovecraft's stories. In the time it takes you to play a long game, you can read all of "The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath." It'll be way more fun, trust me.

I gave this game away to a buddy on two conditions: one, he never ask me to play it. Two, no backs.

Rules: Arcane
Setup time: Monstrous
Play time: Aeons
Fun: Endless void
Strategy level: Chaotic
Condition of player after a game: Gibbering and insane

Lovecraft would be proud.

Seriously, Eirik? This game is a disaster of the highest order. There's a significant amount of ambiguity in some of the rules and the game is more frustrating than playing an actual game of golf.

Sure the art and some of the cards is mildly humorous, but a take-that game where everything comes down to the luck of a few die rolls is ridiculous. Poorly written rules and a play time that's ridiculously long is a loser for me.

(Actually it wasn't that bad, but for the sake of this list I must blow things out of proportion.)

This game is terrible. Limited choices, pictures of cards but it's not really a card game, lots of luck. It's just far enough off the beaten path that people think they're venturing out into "different" games, but it's worse than the old classics.

I hate your game because it's essentially Monopoly. But with an added house rule that means that 50% of the time that you have a turn you get to roll the dice but do nothing else. Not even move.

And Catan isn't even a real place.

I find it irritating that I can never manage to do what I really want, because other people keep stealing my spaces on the board. And even if I do, I never manage to get all the stuff I need in order not to get penalty points. Not my type of game.

I didn't pick Monopoly because it would be to obvious

I hate this game because I find it to be very boring snore
It's supposed to be cooperative but it doesn't play that way.
All you do is move and draw a card or 2 (blah).
I find the combat system to be broken - it completely makes no sense.

And the game takes way way too long to play. I started a game of Die Macher at the same time that my husband started a game of Fury of Dracula and we finished Die Macher first!!!

Everyone else in my gaming group loves it, so I am forced to play (someone please save me)

Hate is a bit strong, but this game was one of my first forays back into gaming and it was definitely not a great experience. Especially after the rave reviews. The frustration arising from waiting for the correct cards to show up made me trade this away soon after my first plays. And that was after I spent 2 days putting on all the bloody stickers!

You have Cranium. Fantastic- it's trivial pursit+pictionary+sculpting with clay. yes, you get your stupid player interaction, but its at the expense of any sort of strategy.

I really dislike this game because often when I've got myself geeked up for a gaming night, and I've got some favorites with me that haven't hit the table in ages, I would have friends say "I don't want to play anything that involves thinking tonight- let's play Cranium." MY hopes of some entertainment and strategy down the drain!

Oh, and this also is terrible because if you have two really involved people on a team they can easily shut everyone else out, and you end up with two people excited and involved and several others watching disinterestedly.

Grant, Carcassone sucks. A dull dull tile placement game that was made for the casual board game crowd... not real geeks, just regular people... who the hell are they??

Look at that damned picture. Does that look like a geek to you? Man if she is willing to play this game AND SMILE then I will never play it.

The other thing that sucks about this is that everyone seems to own a copy so I end up playing the damn thing every once in a while in hopes that next game we play will be something cool.

It's just a completely random make up a puzzle as you go game and I can't do it. At least in betrayal you lay a tile AND DO SOMETHING, and it plays over the course of a lunch hour too!!

Grant,

I hate this game for one simple reason; ninjas clearly are too busy and deadly to run a burger franchise, unless it was a front for an assassin's guild, which wouldn't be necessary as they are already too quick, elusive, and efficient to even require any kind of masking of their business. Furthermore, ninjas would not waste their time with beef burgers. Everyone knows that the ninja's burger of choice is made from the meat of the dangerous Drescherpus, a multi-armed beast whose piercing laughter can even kill a Deaf Leopard. The meat of a Drescherpus is poisonous to whomever eats it, unless they are dexterous enough to remove each particle of poison gas from the meat as they chew it, something which only a ninja could accomplish.

Your game is unrealistic.
