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.

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.

Faster, funner and more action. Sure RAF is much more of a sim but it's also a self playing piano that isn't all that fun to watch. Hornet Leader is much more of an action RPGs then a sim but it plays the squad level airway very well, is very involving and fun.

Icehouse (the game).

I've heard this sentiment echoed by a lot of pyramid gamers. Icetowers seemed to take the most innovative aspects of Icehouse (no board, no turns) and remove a great deal of the fiddliness of Icehouse.

I've only played Classic Icehouse a few times but I definitely prefer Icetowers. Much of the same feel but it is far simpler to learn and teach as well as quicker and in my opinion more elegant.

Best part though was that I didn't have to buy anything new or replace anything when Icetowers fired Icehouse since they use the same set!

FIRED Axis & Allies.
.

Mainly because I could never roll a 1 to save my life. I really really grew to hate Axis & Allies, and it was the only game that my friends ever wanted to play. Then suddenly one of them obtained Ikusa, and I was the happiest teenager-who-was-not-getting-laid alive. I didn't have to roll a 1 to kill something any more, and it used twelve-sided dice! Like, ZOMG! Thankfully, from that point on, we exclusively played Ikusa over Axis & Allies (my 1 allergy was not the only reason why), and I enjoyed playing board games with my friends again. The End.

Impulse (mechanism) redefines concept of role selection and following, in very good sense. Game has Science Fiction theme and has space exploration and fights, (not in passive aggressive GtR's Legionary style or Eminent's "use spaceship tokens to conquesr planet" form)

Card graphics in prototype as shown in

Luckily not long after I tried Ingenious at game night and decided to pick up a copy. Its now one of our favorite games, but ensures poor Wasabi won't be played anywhere but game nights anymore...

My group played a lot of RftG, and GtR never really took of with us for some reason, but Innovation fired them both. I think its success stems from having more direct player interaction than RftG and having a slightly longer player time.

Culbertson's jazzed up version of the traditional european game of Klabberjass/Bela. With his modernized scoring and streamlined rules, and the built-for-excitement bridge scoring, there's absolutely no reason to play the original.

(Five ratings, two BGG entries under different names: not bad for an old game from the 30s!)

So all 3 BGG users who play Klaberjass can become 3 users who play Jo-Jotte.

This game gives you far more options without all the hokey nonsense (A skunk farm? Seriously?) and the limited rounds make this game more strategic.

because it does the whole "epic battles in a mythical ancient era" much better.

and



because it does the whole build/move/conquest genre and card-based combat much more elegantly. StarCraft is good, and I like some of the design decisions and game mechanics, but it's so bogged down in FFG's tendency to throw hundreds of cards and chits at a game. Combat in StarCraft doesn't take long to become headache-inducing, while combat in Kemet takes just a few minutes and is as complicated at the beginning of the game as it is at the end.

and



because it does conquest via holding territory for VP gain better.

King of Tokyo easily fired



Played both tonight after a long break from Inn fighting. PLayed King first - heaps of laughs, trash talk, and so on. Couple of new players who got into it round 1. Game went 30 minutes or so. Awesome

Played Inn Fighting second because I remembered it being much the same style of game only with D&D characters not monsters. Confusing even though played lots of times before, lots of rules checking, bored expressions, no trash talking, weird way points go back and forth. Couple of new players never got into it at all. Game went 1hr 30. Snoozefest.

A bit sad really because I had such fond memories of Inn Fighting.

FIRED:



I'm sorry Dr. Knizia, but Vaccarino's game has a modular board (4 sections from 8 available) and some new scoring methods based on 10 different Kingdom Builder cards (selecting randomly only 3 of these) that makes every game different.

All of these ingredients makes Kingdom Builder an ideal Through the Desert substitute with more variability, interaction and thought decisions to take.

For me a deserved winner of SdJ 2012 (IMHO).
