We all think (or at least hope), when we buy a new game that it's going to be great. That it will be one of the best games we ever bought and we won't even think about another game for several months because this one is so good.

But sometimes, the new game isn't quite up to it. And sometimes it all goes terribly wrong and it's a game you really wish you had not bought.

So what was your last mistake?

To be fair not the worst game I ever bought, (Say hello Smokers Wild) but the last one I regretted. The thing is it's not awful it just seems a bit pointless. It's dumbed down Rummy, so if you like Rummy, play Gin Rummy and if you don't like Rummy, you won't like this.

I did write a review giving more details. This explains my view in more detail.

This game was recycled through BGG within about a week of me buying it.

I don't regret it so much as I have to admit it'll never get played... It's way too big and the rules way too long (not necessarily too complex, but too involved). I bought it for the theme, though, so I only have myself to blame... shake

Buying an expansion for a base game which I don't own.

It's hard enough having fully playable games sitting shrink-wrapped and unplayed. They mock me but it doesn't sting as bad when I can pull them off the shelf at any time.

This 'game' has brought a level of regret I hadn't yet realized was in me. I have no leverage with this expansion... it owns me. It reminds me constantly that I'm worthless unless I go out and buy its base game. And when I do pick it up, it wasn't out of my own will, it's because it made me.

I feel like I sold my freedom for $2 at the thrift store.cry

I had pretty high hopes for this, and it might play a bit better with more experienced players than we were, but this turned out for me to be an overlong, underthemed disappointment, and a fairly pricey one. Not enough flavor, too much abstraction, too many distinctions in the contests that didn't amount to enough. The worst of it is, I had this traded away on a math trade, then ended up having to leave my copy behind when my wife and I split, then ended up buying a second copy to complete the math trade. So I actually regret buying AoC twice.

Bought this game because my daughter "liked" it.

Not a fan at all although I could see how others might like it. Love to sell/trade, to at least give it a caring home.

PS. love all games but would like to get a copy of Way Out West.

oh oh another one.
possibly not that bad a game. But I could not get past the badly designed "internationalised" icons. Please please, when making a game that has a lot of variable powers and abilities, write it on the card or board! do not make an awful, inscrutible icon system that forces you to constantly refer to the rulebook....I know this is due to making the game affordable to localise, without major changes to the graphics etc etc but for this game it makes it nigh on unplayable straight off the bat.
I hope you're enjoying it Minty

I used to be an avid wargamer and partial to very complex, immersive games like ASL. So I figured I might like a heavily themed game that I can really lose myself in imaginatively and emotionally. I heard this one is solo-friendly, and I didn't like the theme of Arkham Horror, so I gave this a try.

Halfway into my first (and only) solo game, I said to myself, "This is stupid. All I'm doing is moving almost randomly around the map, jumping on colored dots, and rolling all-too-similar battle results over and over.

I noticed I wasn't bothering to read the card text after a while, and I'm guessing the cards and story are a big deal for fans of this game. Turned out not to be my thing at all.

One bright spot: My wife saw the game set up in my room and asked about it. She said it looks interesting. So, maybe we'll try it together someday.

It's not that this is a bad game (it's not), but I was wavering between this and Unhappy King Charles! as a pre-order, and after playing both I like UKC a lot better.

Its not so much that it is a bad game. My wargaming buddies think it is too generic and German game like. My German game buddies got Agricola. cry So this is destined to stay off the table for a long while.

Impulse purchase. I may play it eventually, but probably not until late this year or into 2010. I've got to read through and take notes on the rulebook, then ponder how I'll play it solo.
What was I thinking?

Looked like a real winner of a game. Seemed to be dripping with humor and theme. Turns out it takes forever to be able to do anything. Then it sort of becomes beat on the leader. Really much too long for what it is.

This is a game I was expecting so much more from. It is ok, and at half what I paid for it would have been alright. Of course no one in my primary game group really likes it so even then it likely would have sat mostly unplayed.

No offense to those many people who seem to love it, but I read many comments of people who loved "For Sale" and the theme sounded great... but I get this expensive game ($25 +postage) for basically 2 decks of cards! But several people told me it was great, so I tried it anyway, but it's sooooooo random and simple...

I played this a few times with my brother before realizing that I can play the computer version with him instead which we both find more fun and less tedious. At least this board game revived my interest in playing the computer game. Sadly though it now takes up a ton of room on my game shelf. Perhaps I'll have to pull it out again sometime and try playing with more than 2 players. I should enjoy that more, right? RIGHT?!

Graduating from Purdue I really should have stayed away from a game with this title....

It is not a bad game, however, I just never warmed up to it. Whenever we want to play a game of this type, ND always seems to lose to the classics (i.e. Puerto Rico, Goa, Princes of Florence, Amun Re etc.)

Okay, I know the list was about my last mistake but... I've got couple so I hope no one will mind.

Apparently when I bought this game, I mistakenly thought it was 1985 when I had infinite time, a tolerance for complexity, an opponent in a similar situation and Paths of Glory did not exist..

Heard some good buzz on this. Tried a couple of the many different complexity levels. At the higher end I have no idea what they're talking about. As a matter of fairness, I'm not exactly a huge baseball fan. But man this is boring. For comparison, I'm not a fencing fan, but I enjoy En Garde.I'm not a car racing fan but enjoy Detroit-Cleveland Grand Prix (a lot), etc. Both of those games are highly abstracted. Maybe if Knizia lived in USA he could do a abstracted baseball game with decent mechanics. cool

When I saw this print and play on the net it impressed me. It has an interesting concept, really nice artwork, and an unusual theme (think reverse pandemic).

Anyway I bought it, and spent the better part of a Sunday putting it all together as best I could. When I got it to the table at the club it hooked in a couple of players easily.

Then it flopped. It was repetitive, the cards didn't really do a damn thing. Worst of all, we played for over an hour, and our score markers were nearly all on top of each other. Dispite all we tried, the way the game works stopped anyone from getting ahead. the game was decided by the dice roll to see who went first on the last turn, which was the unpleasent tasting icing on the cake.

When I got home I sat down and wrote a whole A4 page of rejigs for the rules to try and shake it up a bit, but I havn't really got the interest to take it to the table again and try them.
