You have games EVERYONE knows and you never have any problems finding people to play with you. But you also have that special game you just love, but the only person willing to play with you is your friend/sibling/cousin that lives 5 hours away and you can't wait for that person to come so you can dust off that favorite game and play. Here's a list of those games!

I bought this game right before a party and we had a lot of fun, but after, that I had problems finding interested people to start a game... I unfortunatly described the game as having elements of RPG to my sister which pushed her off like a lard-bucket full of armpits. Eventually she read the reviews about this game on BGG and now whenever she comes back to our parent's house we play that game... I am always anxious for her to come since she's the only one that will play this with me (we play the 2 players variant)

I got this for my 21st birthday. A lot of people seem interested to play a first game, but once they see how long it is (usually about 5 hours) they are turned off. My friend Renaud came once to my house and we played and he loved the game so much he bought a copy for himself. He seems to be the only person I can get to plan a game of this, although often other people will join us at the last minute once the board is set up and the pizza is ordered. We love to put blasting classical music in the background while playing this and I am known to wear a camouflaged hat (used for paintball in the past) or sometimes even a berret while playing this. Needless to say we always have a lot of fun (Even if the Axis has always won in the past 5 games no matter who controls it)

My father basically enjoys two games: Chess and Go. I'm not so good at chess, but I'll never say no to a good ole game of Go against my dad. The lack of theme has left me wondering if any of my PlayStation generation friends would even agree to learn how to play this game.

I bought this game 50-50 with my sister (but I recently exanged my shares to become the sole owner of N64's Zelda's Majora's Mask). This is a fun game, but people who don't enjoy Chess will probably be turned off by this game and people who really do enjoy Chess will really HATE that game. I remember when I saw my father (who loves Chess) playing this against my sister... he looked so disgusted, he felt we had destroyed his game, I might has well have urinated on his Chess board and he would have been less depressed about what had happenned to his favorite game. Now I only play this against my sister, but we still rarely play... maybe due to the fact I have only managed to beat her once at this (due to the extreme damage of the Fireball card might I add)

One of my local friends is the only fellow I could ever find to play this game with me. It is a decent space game too, especially if you are a fan of the show. Not exactly easy to teach to new players, but I have tried.

I bought this game and have only been able to play it once, and that was with a foriegn exchange student from Poland. I lost. I'm unwilling to let go of the game, because I like it and I want to play it again. Unfortunately, I bought it at the same time my gaming friends were moving out of my small eastern Iowa town. I've tried to get my wife to play, but she doesn't like games that take a long time(over an hour). I'll find somebody eventually.
