An ongoing theme in or game group is games that make you want to flip the table... For whatever reason. Then there's what we call "rage quitting." We may indeed be a corps of genuine and impatient smart asses. However, we suspect we are not alone in our frustrations. Hence this list of games that infuriate... And why. Or, games that must be avoided for fear of making Hulk angry.

The only game I've actually had one foot physically planted away from the table at all times. Were it not for two key factors, I would have stormed off: 1) my 13 year old daughter was playing and I am a firm believer in teaching Gamer Etiquette to her and her friends (she has been playing "real games" since age 8 and its the friends that need training at this point) and 2) I knew the game was only 10 minutes long.

This game is hell on earth. I like coops fine. I like real time games fine. I don't want like repeating myself and organizing the game group is enough work already. Then there's the piercing, deafening Hades screech of the sound track. Just... No... And, curses? There's already Curses, a game I would burn on the grill if I could.

Flip.the.table.

What.the.hell.just.happened? There I was, playing this game, everything was fine...then, BAM! It ended and suddenly I was livid.

I have no problem losing games. I so it all the time, especially when learning them. I almost do it on purpose when learning games so I can see what certain crap strategies will end up doing.

AFAoS was a rage ninja. I wanted to like this game and it sucked. The design flaws broke me was what we figured out in the end.

Dear.
God.
No.


This looks like table slip material to me. PTSD'd just watching the Dice Tower review. I can handle complex, "busy" games... But this is BANANAS! No, thank you.

This game drives me nuts. Thinking about it makes me want to throw my iPad as I type this. I envision 52 card pickup to make myself feel better.
