No, not anti-Essen, I'm excited about my first trip next week!

Rather, a list inspired by my curent tast of trawling through all the new (and a few old) releases to find the ones I might be interested in.

I'm sure everyone has their own criteria for quickly rejecting games that are of no interest, so let's hear them.

I always used to say "Munchkin is fun exactly once - the moment you look at the cards"

Now, these days are long gone....

If there was a title "nerdiest game ever", Munchkin would anually achieve it

I counted 100 retreads of my avatar game, whose graphic was chosen for its personal reaction pose when facing the text of Geeklist/Forum posts. I wonder how many retreads there are of games featuring Middle Ages, Space, Fantasy, Farming, Zombies, Railroads, Civilization... Where's the innovative new stuff? (You've just been pricked on purpose)

I have to many games for 3-4 players and a lot of them do not get lots of table time, so I actively try to look out for games that play at least 2-4 or 3-5.
I do not succeed always. whistle
