Meant to be THE 2 player game in my collection, read up about it and it sounded promising. Played it 3 times and moved on with life.

Bought in my early days of boardgaming, should've trusted my gut when I saw way too many different versions of this game on shelves. Gut said this is somehow never a good thing. I didn't listen. Was ok at first, me being an RPG lover and this totally taking the piss out of that. After way too many games with too many new people way too late in the night I just stopped bringing this along. Amen.

I loved this game. Truth be told I didn't know any better at the time. Played it so much we eventually added real money to the mix. Oh well.

Received it as a gift. Played it a LOAD with my wife.


Then got Battle Line and haven't played it since. Battle Line is so much better in my opinion that there's no need to play Lost Cities if you have it.

One of the first games we got and played it numerous times. The placement of the helicopter tile at the end really ruined it for me and we haven't played it in yeeeears.

Another early purchase. I quite liked it to be honest but most of the time it's just the two of us and if there are more than two then there are plenty of better games to play.

Should really play it again actually. You get a lot of game for the small box, with various routes to victory and a decent amount of strategy mixed in with the luck of the draw etc.

I like the game, but I'm not bringing out a game this long that features player elimination as a key feature. Getting 7 people together to play this and then kicking someone out after the 1st hour is a non-starter for me.

I have a hard time imagining my copy getting played again.

-There is no way I'm bringing this to game night or to a board game meet up.
0% chance.

-If I have gamers over, this is staying in the basement. It is within the realm of possibility that they would collectively clamber for Settlers of Catan, and if so I would acquiesce.
~0.2% chance

-If I have non-gamers over that is what I bought Wits and Wagers, Time's Up Title Recall, Can't Stop, Ingenious, Blokus, Ricochet Robots and the like for. I won't be suggesting a game I will smoke them at, will take over an hour, where I will have to spend ten or so minutes explaining the rules to them and where the most significant decisions are made before the first player even rolls the die.
0% chance

Too long and in my mind has been surpassed by other tech building or negotiation games that scratch the itch in a fifth of the time.

Still, I miss it. Sometimes, I feel like it's the 8 hour playtime which made it special.

I can't explain it. We loved it when it first came out.

I really enjoy this game, it was one of our most played games last year.

It's not fallen out of favour or anything, I've just misplaced it. Does that count on a technicality?

I got into Magic in 1995, around the time of 4th Edition and Ice Age. It pretty much stole my brain.
I was never that good a player, but I had lots of fun with it for about seven years or so.
I still have all my old decks and a stack of card boxes in the closet, but none of my friends play anymore so they just gather dust. (edit: my cards, not my friends)
