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.

. . . fired Hive!

Well, kinda sorta. I bought Hive about a year ago, thinking my wife and I would play it when the weather turned nice and we were on our deck. And last summer, that did happen. And we both liked Hive OK.

But--after she beat me at Hive and it was time to say, "Let's play again," we both reached for the dominoes set I had nearby. We played two or three games of dominoes and had a lot more fun doing it.

My wife described Hive as "intriguing"--and we're both interested enough that we'll likely try it again someday. However, it has no chance element; hence it's too chesslike for casual play.

In contrast, dominoes is a practically perfect outdoor game. Nice luck-to-skill ratio, easy to learn, quick to set up and play, and scalable for most any number of players. There are also limitless variants to try.

I saw all the hype: it’s the perfect 2-player/couples game blah blah blah. Hell, I even like the theme (such as it is). But reality is a harsh mistress: people who recommend it are doing so because they are trying to help gamers (mostly men) get their (mostly female) companions to play and there seems to be this idea that women just don’t like anything more challenging than Battleline. Now, honestly, there is nothing wrong with Lost Cities, but I have no problem bring a bit more complexity into my 2-play Kosmo games and Dragonheart fits that bill. Also, extra points for cute dragon token and better graphics.

Well, for me at least.
Amazing theme and components. Gameplay is great fun as long as people know what they are getting into. This isn't a naval skirmish simulator. This is Eldritch Horror/DungeonQuest with ship skirmish in heavily story-driven scenarios.

Very underrated game. Love it. Immediately became one of my favorite games I've ever played. X-Wing is very good, but there was something about it that I can't put my finger on. I enjoyed it, but it didn't excite me. After playing Dreadfleet, I've been thinking about it all the time and had to play it again as soon as possible.

Magic: The Gathering.

The thing I miss the most about playing MtG was all the time I spent building and tweaking decks.

The thing I hate the most about MtG is that it is a CCG and very costly to obtain a complete set of cards. My dislike of CCGs is so great that I have banned MtG and any other CCGs from my collection.

Dungeon Crawler, an expandable card game, provides the challenge of constructing 2 balanced decks, designed to be played against one another and does this without destroying my bank account.

I also like the fact that Dungeon Crawler can be played solo, so after constructing the decks, I can test them out immediately.

Do I think MtG is great? Yes, but I avoid it like I avoid drugs.

Dungeon Lords has completely replaced Agricola in our group in every way. The theme is more fun and better implemented, there is an option for much more direct player interaction, and the added puzzle/evilometer mechanics create deeper layers to your strategy.

At the same time, it hangs onto the worker placement, resource management, personal board planning elements that made Agricola fun in the first place.

Sorry Agricola, but you are FIRED!! devil

Fired: Risk. I was never fond of Risk as an employee (he often did a lot of nothing on company time, and fostered negative attitudes in the workplace), but there was always somebody that wouldn't let me get rid of him.
I was ready to hire Dust on the strength of his resume alone, but decided to give him a trial employment just to get a feel for him. Plus, it would give a chance for some other shareholders to see what he had to offer us. Most of the board agrees (and even the few that remain unsure like the new guy well enough to give him the job); Risk... you're done. Don't let the door hit you on your way out.

While Eclipse takes a while to play, it doesn't take as long as TI. It has less components, better rules and feel, and scratches the same itch. The proof is in the pudding: I've played Eclipse with various numbers of people more times in the last month than I've played all the various incarnations of TI combined.

I have never really been a fan of Stone Age as it has quite a primitive way of turning numbers rolled into victory points (therefore having a luck factor too high for this 'rules complexity' level). Egizia is not less complex but it's really fine and I really like it (see my review here). So at least I can say it has fired Stone Age as THE medium-light Hans im Glück worker placement game.

Unsurprisingly fired its predecessor Eight-Minute Empire.



The successor game adds modular boards, replaces most of the set-collection-for-points with small ability upgrades while still keeping a few point sets, has much richer art, and includes a handful of optional mini-expansions to help keep it fresh. It's simply a much more polished and satisfying revision of the same elegant and quick-playing central mechanic.

Phil's rich thematic, sandbox style games fired all the Euro's I know especially the point salad variety. I am looking at you The Castles of Burgundy.

High Frontier, Pax Porfiriana. and Bios: Megafauna are open ended adventures. In Phil's games you learn some basic mechanics and then he turns you loose into the unknown. Half the fun of the game is discovering how all the parts fit together within an environment dripping with theme. In a generic Euro if you want to go to a destination in space, you put a worker on space labeled, "Go to Mars". In High Frontier, you have to lift components to low Earth orbit, assemble the rocket, plan the trip, calculate the fuel, execute burns, make Hohmann pivots, fly through radiation belts, get a moon boost, make your aerobrake landing, prospect, stake a claim, find some water/fuel and then get home again.

Every action you take in his games has some direct relationship to some scientific principle or historic event.

His games do not come easy. But to quote Tom Hank's in A League of Their Own, "It's the hard that makes it great".
