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?

"Ticket to Ride, huh? I have the other versions already and liked them. This must be good."

This is a game of
- "Did I count my colored cards correctly in my completed stack?"
- "How long can I hold on to my (x) color to try stealing someone else's stack?"
- "Wait, how many (x) do I have completed?"
- "****!!!"

My girlfriend and I really like Munchkin and when I read about this it sounded like it was right up our alley and, bonus, could be played with two players!

I bought it, we read the rules, we laughed at the cards and then five minutes in to the game, she looked at me and said exactly what I was thinking:

"What's the point of this??"

I've heard it's good with more players and that it's great to read the cards, but I'll be damned if I ever want to find out. Munchkin it is!

as my Dad says " why do you want to keep learning new games all the time?"

Its almost like I have ADHD or something and .....look at that squirrel!!

I would have preferred pieces with cross sections that were squares rather than trapeziums; made it more of a dexterity game to keep the uneven pieces from falling over all the time.

I'd probably not have regretted if I hadn't known that the other version of Rumis "Blokus 3d", might have better components.

This was just too much work for me. Lovely maps, which I almost convinced myself to keep the game because of. There may be a game in there now with an outside rewrite and possible "basic" rules for the future stuff using this system, but I wasn't about to wait for it.

This game has been around some time and has been published by Ravensburger & Rio Grande, with very nice components. It is similar to Acquire and some people like it better.

The version I purchased is by Flying Turtle, and has to be the cheapest game I own. The plastic tokens are horrible and they cut the number from 20 each color to 18 each. There is a discussion about it on BGG--I am not the only one surprised. Also they stopped supplying the 4 markers for the Stock Exchange Index. That makes a total of 12 markers I have to supply myself in order to have a complete game. In fact I am going to replace all the cheap markers.

Then I read this from another gamer..."(The Flying turtle version) is very much a different game. The board didn't have the middle section for placing the buildings, and it took a lot away from the game. So be sure not to get the Flying Turtle edition, and look instead for the Ravensburger edition. It's far superior."

I would like to rebuy this game, but by quality publishers such as Ravensburger or Rio Grande. Hope they do a reprint.

This game was always on the schedule at my local game convention. There were always crowds for it. Everyone seemed to love this.

It came up on Tanga during their hey day. I saw a lot of comments from a lot of people who loved this game and thought it was one of the best party games ever. So I bought it when it came up on Tanga. Ah, Curse you Tanga.

I never was able to get my local group to even look at it, nor was the coffee shop the setting for it, so the next time the convention came around, I made sure that I was in on a game there.

Ugh! I couldn't wait for the game to be over. I knew that I had my first stinker. But I must say, that to date, it is the only game on my "Previously Owned" list.

I bought this game after reading about 30 reviews and hundreds of comments saying how great it is. I was really let down when I actually played it. It is simply not worth the time it takes to setup in my opinion. I think part of what I don't like is the fact that you don't defend your units with your own dice when someone attacks your unit. My main complaint though is related to theme. The board looks good, The scenarios sound fun, the hex tiles look good, and the plastic pieces look good, but when I actually play the game I don't feel like I am in a battle at all. I feel no tension and I feel no enjoyment whatsoever. No one I have played it with has enjoyed it enough to play it with me again. I traded it away and don't regret it at all.

I'm a comic book nerd. Forget that. I'm a MARVEL COMIC BOOK FANATIC !!!

I nearly lost control when I heard that this game was being released !! I DID lose control when I saw the painted minis and the card artwork !!! I ordered it as soon as it was available !!!

I was very excited when it came in the mail. Opening the box and inspecting all the cool bits inside made me more excited !!! Then... I read the rulebook. gulp

What I got was a bland, actionless, abstract game with one of the most disorganized and horribly written rulebook I had ever read. Even then, I had high hopes for this game (I was in denial). I downloaded all the helper files and everything I could from Boardgamegeek. Then we played it several times through. Even to me, a Marvel comic fanatic, it was one of the most bland and boring games I've ever played (I rank it with Agricola and Puerto Rico in the bore factor). gulp

It's sat in my closet since and it's probably never going to the table again.

Actually I don't buy games that I will hate (most games I buy I have already tried before). And I do think Metropolys is a very good simple-but-interesting game. Unfortunately no friend of mine shares this opinion. Also they are slower than your average geek so even if it was played (it mostly isn't) they would make it a 90 min.s game

Bought this hoping that it would be a TI3 lite, and it was, kind of. A little too lite for my group's taste. We got bored with it pretty quick, and I just swept all the pieces into the box, unsorted. If you know me, then you know that is totally unheard of. My friend asked what I was doing, aren't I separating it, and I grumbled, "I am never playing this game again." Huge let down.

The second board game that I bought turnout to be the "Worst game that i ever bought". Setup was long and boring (Is it just me or does anybody felt it too), gameplay was okay but to overwhelming for a first timer.

with anticipation so high, i bring back home right after buying. soon after, we found out it was too boring and promise to NEVER ever play it again.

Saw the pics here and thought "Dragons and Dice? COOL!" (I'm a fan of both ..)

Finally found this one at a store and bought it on the spot ..

Showed it to my girlfriend and played it with her .. over and over again, as she liked it very much - as well as she likes any game that does not involve the use of brain, like monopoly, yathzee, uno, skip-bo ..

Playing this once or twice in a row might be fine.
However due to its short playingtime I am doomed to play this no-brainer 10-20 times an evening

Next time I'll have to select more carefully what games to bring home ..

I don't buy a ton of games, and I buy even less that I don't know I'll like, so this is the most recent one I regret getting.

Bought if for about $3 last year.

I think T&T is a dry, mediocre game, and the P&G expansion just makes it even more lame. I'm guessing that some people thought the chance of losing your unfinished route was too exciting so an expansion was made up to "fix" it.

I bought this one on a whim; I thought it would be a cool, funny, light RPG. And I had heard good things about Steve Jackson games. Then I opened the box and found some very flimsy cardboard. It was impossible to get the game board flat, the stupid tower in the middle would blow away at the lightest movement, and all the game pieces were just thick paper. It should have sold for $5, but I think I paid something like $30 for it. I felt cheated, and never played the game because of it. Supposedly it is not very good anyway.

Got this one because I thought it looked interesting. Unfortunately, it looks like a very difficult game to teach and having read the rules a few times it doesn't seem like it's worth the trouble. I don't know if I'll ever get this to the table but I intend to try. I won't give up on a game without playing it at least once with a group (except for Magic Realm) so it will eventually get played.

Intrigued by the title, and seeing a new game with a ridiculously low price point, I bit.

What a dry, uninspired game! I already own Hey, That's My Fish!, and that game doesn't get much play. Zombiegeddon was certainly surplus goods, so off it went!

Luckily for me, I was able to trade it off for a copy of Acquire which, in turn, is now in the process of being traded for a copy of Age of Battles: Kulikovo's Battle.

I got this on a whim, thinking it would be a light, fun 'D+D-lite' (along the lines of a Tom Wham special).

Got about half what I expected out of the game, but the 'kill-the-leader' mechanic made it go on forever- way, way too long for the content. I was ready to start handing gifts to people so it would end.

Not surprisingly, this game went away as a gift as soon thereafter as someone seemed interested.

From its description and imagery, you'd think this would be an intriguing dungeon crawl... but instead, it's just a big confusing bucket of unfun. Mainly it's the incessant onslaught of endless modifiers that bother me, making every player's turn last 10 times longer than it needs to... but that's really just the start of a long list of complaints I already made in my Tomb review on this site. Don't waste your money on this one, I wish I had my $40 back.

I read so many reviews and articles, etc. about new games, I rarely purchase a stinker. I can usually tell at least whether it's in the ballpark. I knew Toledo was Martin Wallace light, but I didn't quite realize how light. There's nothing awful about this game, but we played it once and just didn't feel there was a reason to choose it again over the games in my collection. Toledo is the only game I have up for trade. Luckily I got Brass to redeem Mr. Wallace in my eyes

I almost answered Wasabi but I didn't buy it for myself. It sounded OK in the reviews but I got it for Christmas and it isn't that much fun to play. I regret it because a lot of people I play with now love it.

Just didn't do enough research. I thought the scenarios were for 2-4, not only 3-4 (I really don't remember why, but it seemed like an a la carte approach: new tiles, some scenarios, plus you can play 3 or 4 player). Nice to get the new tiles, I guess, but the rest of it is useless to me, as this is not a compelling 3-4p game.
