Happy New Year, Geeks!

I'm curious. What game basically fired/pink slipped another game for you?

I.E. You enjoyed Candyland and played it a lot but when you got Chutes and Ladders, CL was tossed out the door.

How could this happen? Well, the above example isn't that great but maybe you learned a new game that was similar in mechanics but better than the game you were playing. So, you tossed the older one out!

I'm going to list the game that did the firing and mention which game was fired in the body of the text.

Games that ***GOT FIRED BY*** other games

Nice work, Simon!


6/6/11 WOW, this GL has been a ton of fun b/c of all those that have contributed thoughts. Nice going! There was a suggestion to edit the list alphabetically. I thought it a great idea at this point for searching, etc. So, done.

1/5/10 1:30pm EST EDIT: I think this geeklist is going to get me FIRED...

Fired: Checkers



ZERTZ and TZAAR make me wonder why I ever played anything on a checkerboard, but it's ZERTZ that really booted checkers out of its tenuous hold on the lightweight piece-jumping abstract. TZAAR is one better, so I just had to hire it as well; there was enough left over from Checkers' bloated salary to bring in both of these newcomers.

Fired Zombies!!!

Now, it's not that Zombies!!! was really in need of firing; it was already in my 'For Trade' category. But I kept thinking "but...it could be useful to have a ton of zombie minis for some other game!"

Zombicide has a ton of much better sculpted zombie minis. Zombies!!! is now completely obsolete.

Unless, of course, what I really want is a zombie conga-line.

fired Last Night on Earth.

My group is so big on playing cooperative games that Zombicide immediately took over our zombie game slot.

Fired Arkham Horror.



Zombicide delivers the same amount of thematic dice rolling as Arkham Horror with 0.1% of the rules and random chits/cards.

Fired . . .




I am a sucker for the Sim/Tycoon world building computer games. Both of these kinda scratch that itch. However, there can be little doubt that Zooloretoo does so in a more elegant and charming manner. I was never going to miss the blind bidding and inane title, but I do kinda miss some of O Zoo le Mio's nice bits.

Fired



because it's almost the same exact game, just streamlined, simplified and shortened.

Zooloretto Mini removes the single biggest obstacle that keeps Zooloretto from being a fantastic gateway game - the coins. Gone. And honestly, not missed. Everything else not related to coins is here - you're doing the same thing on your turns and your ultimate goal is the same. Scoring is simplified. It plays in about half the time.
