Einfach Genial - $5.99 from Juanita GW. Complete unplayed German 2nd edition. Components sealed.

This was found in the exact same spot on the exact same shelf that an English version of Ingenious sat for nearly a month because it was $14.99.

I read the side of the box and said 'that has to be the german version of Ingenious', which was confirmed by the picture on the bottom of the box...

I love the cover of this version.

Since we are talking a lot about staying power, I thought I'd choose Ingenious as my header item because it is a game I have been playing since about 2006, and played again Saturday.

I'm not much for boiled-down abstracts. I'll play them, but I'll never love them. But my mom loves this one, and since it is fairly harmless, and since it brings my mom so much pleasure, we pull this out nearly every time we game.

This year was a bit different: I got married! So now it's 3p games of Ingenious! And I think my wife enjoys it as much as my mom does, so I suspect all my trips to Westbank will now include Ingenious. Because my mom is loathe to get rid of any games in her small collection, I could easily be playing this 20 years from now.

- Ingenious
I'd rate this a 4 for me in a vacuum, but my mother loves it, and my wife liked it too. Others' love for a game often increases my own enjoyment of a game (see Morels, Hive).

Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective
My wife and I finally cracked this one open, and we are finding it enthralling. Just as good as I had been led to believe it is. We're only maybe a quarter of our way through the first case, but we are loving it!

- Love Letter
Taught it to my mom, who thought it was great.

- BraveRats
There was an accident on the road that had us waiting for a bit, so we broke out BraveRats and played it using the centre console and our laps!

- Morels
My wife finally had the energy to learn this game, and she really enjoyed her plays! I'm a bit on the fence with this one: it's one more 2p card game in a long-line of well-designed, mechanically elegant, just-pick-one school of game design. Lost Cities, Arboretum, Thor, etc. So my biggest problem with this one then is the price. Why did I just pay $28 Canadian (that's the online price!) for a deck of cards? Arboretum is less than half the price, and it is just as good. I really have a problem with the price point of this game. Totally unjustifiable to me.

- Tides of Time
Tides of Time was being talked about as an interesting 2p microgame, and it was by Portal Games, so I just threw it into my last order. That was a mistake. It's fine, I guess, mostly because it is a microgame, so it will get played in a 10-minute pocket when no other game will fit, but I found it in no way enthralling. (Big ups to Dewald who lent me the right sized sleeves for these pointlessly massive cards...)

- Haggis
I just don't enjoy numbered card games very much, so Haggis was never going to rate very highly for me. I'm a magpie! I need theme and colour! I did like the gameplay, but it reminded me a lot of Frank's Zoo...which has theme and colour.

- Orléans
Orleans is another euro-point salad, but I had this very strong urge to play it again. Soon. Of course, I hate the set-in-europe-with-earth-tones thing going on with this game, and keep imagining how cool this game would be set in medieval Japan, but the bag-building mechanic and the coloured-worker-placement give them game some legs, and the individually owned buildings are a neat idea. If this game had something like Agricola's minor improvements (or another 100 buildings), it might be one of my favorites, but - lacking that variability - I suspect it's a five-plays-and-done kind of game. Also 2p wasn't much fun as the travel board was too wide open. I think it forces everyone to place guildhalls to prevent one player from easily scoring high on the halls/development points.

- Innovation
I finally got to play Iello's gorgeous redone version of this game...and I hated it. The old cards are far clearer, and much easier to scan quickly. This game is difficult enough to icon-count, and they made it harder! Ha!

- Kingdom Builder
I finally got to teach my wife Kingdom Builder, and as I suspected, she really liked it. So much so, she gave the green light on trying to buy the Big Box version for the cool houses!

- Red7
Still enjoying this.

- Mottainai
Taught it to my wife, and she liked it. Great 15 minute game.

- BattleCON: War of Indines
My first play with War of Indines. Taught a student how to play.

Reiner Knizia game, my copy is renamed Mensa Connections. Free shipping in the UK using either My Hermes or Royal Mail. Used but hardly, played about twice. Box has some wear markings though.

Sweetener:

Monster in your pocket series 1, two unopened boxes containing 4 monsters and 4 power cards each.

Like new with just a bit of box scuffing.

$3 at Savers in south Minneapolis.

Just played it for the first time a bit ago. It's got a lot of interesting strategies one can take.

Will this one work for children as young as 9 years old? A number of my club members have already played Blokus in their enrichment class. Thus, I'd like to have them try something new. I know most of my leaders really like this one. I believe one of them won this at a previous raffle.

terrible games I never need to see again

# 1 and #2 on my top 10 worst games of 2015

Strasbourg 2.0 -> 1.5
Isis & Osiris 2.0 -> 1.5

Pointless mish mashes of stuff without even pretending there's any theme there, seriously in Isis and Osiris they don't even try with a flavour text at the back of the box. What has the poor city of Strasbourg done to deserve this is still beyond me.

half assed games

Ramses II 3.0 -> 3.0
Memory game with some luck. Pyramid is the game they were actually trying to make and succeeded a decade later.

Arf! 3.5 -> 3.0
From an idea in a sketch book to a prototype to self-publishing it in a week. Talk about entitlement - why should I play a game no effort was put in to finish it?

Yardmaster Express 3.5 -> 2.0
It's an achievement really. How to make a semi random non interactive game that takes only 5 minutes and yet manages to be less fulfilling than just staring at the ceiling pursuing random thoughts can be?

that one game that kinda worked

Ingenious 5.5 -> 3.5
Unique, has interesting ideas, there's things to do, has stark visual. And no charm worth mentioning. Why would I play this again? Its card game/tile laying mish mash does has it's place like in retirement homes (which isn't bad, it's a public that's more at home with abstract themes than I am). I like Indigo much better

In Indigo you lay a tile - something happens - the stones move around.
In Ingenious you lay a tile - accounting happens. Wheee!
