Hello, and welcome to the second annual Voice of Experience Review Contest. This contest is modelled on JohnRayJr’s New Voices contest but its goal is different. While that contest aims to encourage new reviewers, the aim of this one is to promote critical commentary on board games. Like last time, we’re looking for reviews based on multiple plays (that’s the ‘experience’ part) but this time there’s a new twist!

Like the first VoE contest, the aims are:

• to promote critical analysis of board games that goes beyond a summary of the rules, pictures of the components and a brief opinion of the game;
• to encourage in-depth exploration of games in a community that tends to be dominated by first impressions.

To make this a little different from last time, for this contest we’re going to focus on the simpler side of gaming – the fillers, gateways, family and party games that don’t often receive a critical look. We hope this will make it even harder to rely on simply explaining the rules, and prompt reviewers to think about what else makes a good or bad gaming experience beyond the game mechanics.

So, for Voice of Experience 2.0:
• you must review a game you have played at least ten times, as last year
• your chosen game must also have a BGG ‘weight’ of 2.0 or lower.

The discussion thread and rules for the contest are here.

This geeklist is for competition entries. You can post an item as soon as you know which game you'll be reviewing. Please update this entry with the link to your review once it is submitted, or delete the item if you are unable to submit before the deadline of July 31st.

I had planned to write a treatise on RFTG strategy, but given you are after the lighter end of games, Fairy Tale is the obvious choice.

This game does not get enough love, let's try to change that!

Okay I've got a couple of things floating around but I've been trying to write a substantial and critical review of this game for ages. I guess I should see if I can't finally get it into shape.

I've played this game like crazy since I got it earlier this year. I've been thinking about writing a review for a while. This a great impetus.

It's weight is currently listed as 1.9 so it just fits within the limit.

I'm thinking of doing a comparative review of StreetSoccer and Fastrack. I'm not a sports buff by any stretch of the imagination but both of these games have this game has gotten me excited in the past year.

Finally submitted and pending review with 4.75 hours to spare.

Here's the review: [Voice of Experience 2.0] Street Soccer - Simulation or Abstract - who care's; it's fun!.

However, if the 1.8 GG is any indication, I don't think it was my best work

I need one more play for this to qualify, but that's a great excuse to play tonight.

USA is an intriguing game as it can be pretty brutal, and I find the connection to some of Moon's other work interesting.

Have decided that my review will be on Court of the Medici - one of the best two player card games on the market.

A simple game with great tactical depth which I believe only comes with multiple plays. It's also got a special place in my heart as being one of the first games I bought and played to bits when I first started getting into the hobby (together with Richard James's other classic, Lords of Scotland) which I hope to get across in my review.

I'll take on this game, and compare it to the more recent card game Creatures as family-style entries into trick-taking card games.


Edit: Here is the review.

I have one edit (sort of) to make ... it's a comparison between two games, David and Goliath and Creatures. How can I "link" the review thread to Creatures?

Edit: Now I'm finished.

Good luck to everyone and well done panel members for thinking of a category requirement. I think it's a great idea and would welcome a different category next year too. Even heavy games are easy enough to avoid rules explanations I think.

My entry probably will be brazilian truco or Coloretto.

I'm leaning towards Truco because I've played it probably +1000 times and I'm still a novice, but I've played it enough to know how the game plays with different people and implications. Plus, it's a good chance to review a game that doesn't have any review and to give it a little bit of visibility outside Brazil(yes, I have an agenda).

Warning, if I choose to review Truco, it's gonna be BIG.

EDIT: The Review can be found here. It turned not as big as I thought it would be
