My 2013 ranking:
95

# of Plays (since 2009):
39 (most of any game ranked this high?)

Likes:
Love the variant that has you place 6 locations around the main room so that there becomes a spatial aspect to the game. {Sorry but I can’t seem to find the link that variant and I don’t the game with me so I can’t find the specifics.} That same variant also has a different way for dealing with investigators who lose all of their stamina or wits. Regardless, I like rolling the custom dice and trying to use my investigators efficiently. I mostly play it solo for 45 minutes of dice rolling and moving around.

Dislikes:
I think minis would have been a nice touch, instead of small square cardboard.

Tidbit:
I spent some cash to upgrade to minis. Makes a big difference to me.

Memorable Game:
Probably the one I played with Allen when I first got the game. He was an Arkham Horror fan and thought the game did a great job being true to the universe. Figured we’d play it a good bit. But a week or so later the iPad app came out and Allen liked it a lot more, so we didn’t really play much Elder Sign. I actually like the cardboard version more than the app, because I don’t get a sense of movement when I click on locations in the app. {But certainly the app is wonderfully designed…. It’s just not as great to play for me.}

Question:
Allen likes the app more than the game. I like the game more than the app.
What’s an example of one “Allen Game” for you?
And what’s an example of one “Rob Game” for you?

25th Feb. 2 player. TAMN Sister Mary & T Ashcan Pete vs Shub Niggurath. Sister Mary was devoured on her second turn & replaced by Kate Winthrop. 24 turns, tons of monsters and a huge run with no Elder Signs. A fun challenge.
25th Feb. 2 player. Unseen Forces expansion. TAMN Gloria Goldberg & T Leo Anderson. After a Mythos card on turn 11 reduced all stamina to zero, they were replaced with TAMN Amanda Sharpe & T Vincent Lee. Poor Vincent died 6 turns later and Carolyn Fern came into play to win 2 turns later (turn 19).
1st march. 4 Player. Unseen Forces. Amanda Sharpe, Michael McGlen, Bob Jenkins & Monterey Jack vs Yig. Fast 15 turn game. Lots of Other Worlds in play made it easy to get the Elder Signs needed to defeat Yig with only 2 tokens on the Doom Track.
1st march. 4 Player. Unseen Forces. T Mark Harrigan, TAMN Joe Diamond, AB Mandy Thompson, ET Carolyn Fern vs Hastur. Epic 31 turn battle vs evil. With 2 adventure cards in play that added Doom Tokens at Midnight, we placed 5 tokens in one fell swoop. It looked bad for a while, but we managed to defeat Hastur before he awoke!
6th March. 4 Player, 2 Newbies. Unseen Forces. TAMN Jim Culver, T Rita Young, JM Monterey Jack & CB Marie Lambeau vs Azathoth. Had fun defeating Azathoth in 28 turns.
17th April. 4 Player. Unseen Forces. TAMN Sister Mary, T Joe Diamond, AB Jenny Barnes & ET Kate Winthrop vs Yig. Easy, fast victory.
11th June. 2 Player. Unseen Forces. TAMN Harvey Walters, T Gloria Goldberg vs Azathoth. 26 turns to Victory against the Formless Chaos!

I picked Elder Sign as my favorite game that month. I've only played it once since then. I meant to dig it out around Halloween and play with my son, but that didn't happen. I'm sure I'll play this again some time, but it has not hit the table.

Haggis was another game that I tried out last year after picking up from my trip to Geekway. I have played it a couple of times on boardgamearena, and got trounced. My wife didn't care for out attempt to learn it. She just wasn't understanding what to do and I wasn't doing a good job of explaining it. I think I should sit down with either, someone who knows how to play and they can explain it.. or with someone else that wants to learn and just take our lumps. I think it would be a good card game, if I could learn it.

The last was Family Vacation. I've played with my daughter a few times and have had fun. This one has probably been played the most out of the three. My wife tried it out and thought it was ok. I still would like to get a more players and give it a go. I think it would be better that way.

So, out of the three... Family Vacation is probably the one that has stood the test of time.
