Rejoicing in our recent purchase of Seasons, which we played multiple times this weekend, I realized that it falls into what for me is a pretty small group of games: those that are immediately addictive, that I want to play over and over again after the initial introduction, that sing to me with their siren call, urging me to cancel other plans and stay up way too late, that end up getting played 10+ times in the first week.

There are about six games that have had this effect on me, and I think the one thing that they all have in common is that they're relatively short; it's easy to say "just one more game" when it's expected to take only an hour or less.

Unfortunately, the excitement of any game tends to wear off after a while, which is why I'm hoping to discover other games of "this sort", whatever that may be....
