What's the worst licensed product board game you ended up with just because you made the mistake of publicly declaring that you liked a certain T.V. show or movie?

To be fair, it does have a cool special rule for the One Ring replica and the die that has Sauron's eye imprinted on it. It actually helps make the game more fun and tolerable in my opinion.

Way back when this was a new game, I was in High School. At the time I would attend the meetings of the weekly board game club at the local University. I was also reading some Edgar Rice Burroughs at the time.

So a relative decided to give me this game. Trouble is it's a fairly simplistic roll & move game. No doubt for someone learning to count.

I tried to convince my wife to take it back and exchange it for something else at B&N, but since it was from her brother she wanted to keep it. It is still on the game shelf...two years later...still in the shrink wrap...and probably always will be.

Thing is my wife is a gamer and doesn't even like Monopoly.

My wife's grandmother bought her this as a Christmas present. My wife had read the books in college, but hadn't really become a twihard. All her grandmother knew is that she had read them and talked about them once. We kept in shrink until we donated it to a local thrift store. It looked pretty horrid.

My wife knows I like Doctor Who and board games. What could possibly go wrong?

Next time I get a horrible game, I'm gonna just ask for the receipt instead of pretending to be pleased.

I think we got Dr. Who Operation one year from my other half's brother.

I think his thought process must have gone something along the lines of:

Like Dr. Who - Check
Like Games - Check
Like Dr Who Operation shake

From memory, you are operating on a Dalek, which is just wrong on so many levels.

I don't think we even looked at it - it just went straight into the village fete. However, when I went to find a picture and add it to this list I found at least two people who would have liked it, so maybe it would have made good trade fodder.

My family and I are huge Lost fans. So when my wife stumbled on this "treasure" at a garage sale, she figured it would be an awesome addition to our gaming library. She couldn't have been more wrong.

Not only did we find the game very tedious and poorly designed, but I was eliminated from the game after my SECOND turn, so I was forced to sit there and watch my family play through the rest of the slogfest, helping them to consult the rulebook and sort out the numerous rules and mechanics issues.

Next time we have a garage sale, this will be in the dollar bin for sure.

"I Know You Like Boardgames, So I Bought You The Best of Genus!"

This was actually said to me when I was given this game. *sigh*

My thoughts:
- Just smile and nod... smile and nod.
- Don't think about how a perfectly good Christmas present was wasted on this.
- Hopefully, they won't ask to play it...

We played it. Twice! cry

Anyway, I still have this game up for trade if someone out there wants their own "Best of Genus". It is in great condition as it has only been played twice! whistle
