Frequently misunderstood "luck" games with lots of strategy/tactics
- Joe GoltonUnited States
Why does this happen? I'm guessing the
23 main reasons are:
1) Did not play against good players in the first few games, so did not see how the most skilled player usually wins (unless others gang up).
2) Played in a group that was only using a very limited set of strategies so was not exposed to the full richness of the game.
3) As milomilo122 says (paraphrased)Quote:Many in the BGG community underestimate the amount of strategy to be found in most games, because it's standard to buy a lot of games and never ever commit ourselves to seeing how far we can go with any given game.This list is for games which are often misunderstood after the first few plays as being mostly luck when they are in fact mostly skill. And I'd like at least a brief explanation of why this happens for the game.
I'm seeding the list with the 3 games I mentioned above but I'd love to see more misunderstood games added and comments/debate on each game.
NOTE: The exact opposite list was posted 2.5 years ago (it's a spoof interspersed with occasional serious discussion):
Games that you hate because they claim to have Strategy, but they're basically Pure Luck.
