I am part of a regular group of 5 that get together every 1st, 3rd, and (if there is one) 5th Saturday of the month. 3 of us used to just get together weekly (usually on tuesday or wednesday) and game alot as well. We had always wanted a 6th for the Saturdays, and more importantly, a 4th for the weekday session. We got our wish in the form of a funloving, light hearted, fast learning, and very competitive chick named Jackie.

This list is a group of games that need to come out and get the heck played out of them, as they definately start to shine with 4.

This is one of those games that just, IMHO, doesn't do as well with 3 players. Jackie is a huge Eqyptian nut, so I think this would really do well. It's been a while since I knocked the dust off of this one.

This one fell out of the rotation when we discovered the joy that is Union Pacific. I think that since she loved UP, that it's grandpa should come out and play. This is still one of my faves, and I think it's much harder than UP.

This had quite a few plays when we first bought it, so it's not that it hasn't been played enough, but that it is such a great game that it needs to see more play. I prefer this one with less than a full boat (couldn't resist the pun).

This one has only seen the light of day once. It wasn't because we felt the game had flaws, but because we bought so much the year that it came out that it jsut got set aside. I like the new variants that were introduced, and I think this one could use quite a few more go's.

This is a fantastic majorities/bargaining game. This is a recent aquisition, and only got played with 3 thus far. With 3 the game was tense, but I know it will be grueling with 4.

I love the look of this one as you build it, and I think the purity of the rules does alot for me. This was another game that has had it's fair share of plays, but mostly with 3. Jackie is a huge Carc fan like the rest of us, so this will be hitting the table tommorrow.

This game's sweet spot is with 4, and we have only had the opportunity to try it that way once. With the addition of a regular 4th player, who is also a huge D&D fan, this will probably be a regular once it hits the table again.

This has seen play once, and it just needs the right people to get it back out. I think the only thing that keeps it on the shelf is length. I just need to "whip it out", and I bet they will be begging for more.

Everyone else in my group has played this but me. My wife begged me to buy it, and it has yet to be played. I love the idea and the rules taunt me to play it.

They call it multiplayer solitaire, but the auction in this game is so critical that I never felt the same way. I think this is one of those gamer's games that everyone should try at least once.

Two other games that I love that fit into this category and style are Das Zepter von Zavendor and Industrial Waste.

This is my second most favorite Dorra game after For Sale. This game was awesome with 3, I could not fathom the tension with 4....but I will soon.

Pick up and deliver games are among my favorites. Mesopotamia and Neuland are 2 great examples, and this one needs to see play again....another is my newly Acquired Roads and Boats.

This is one that needed more than 3 to see if I truly love or hate this one. I've been on the fence about it for a while, and it's starting to make my butt sore

There's just not enough going on with 3, so now with 4 I think I will be able to feel the tension, and see what this one is all about.

With 3 it's easy for 2 of us to get distracted with each other while the 3rd cathces us off guard. I think this one will prove to be best with 4.

We tried this one once, and felt like the game was just set up to torture us. I think with the addition of an extra person, there will be more opportunity for trade, and the game will play much better; unlike the first time when we felt like it was playing us.

An often overlooked Kramer game. It's ugly, but the gameplay is beautiful. It just needs more plays and has recently been overshadowed by Kramer's Hacienda.

We played this about 4 times before we realized he totally screwed up the rules, so this would be a good time to play it right and add a 4th into the mix.

We played this months ago at Prezcon (twice with Mr. Dontanville), and waitied and waited and waited for Boards and Bits to finish their move before we were able to get our copy. So needless to say, a game of this is waaaayyy overdue.

I know that the newest edition of this game is supposed to have some "fixes", but I personally like the game the way that it is. The cube tower is an awesome mechanism, and this is one of those gamer games that everyone should play at least one time.

I never realized how big a Kramer fan I was until I started to make this list; or maybe I jsut tend to set his stuff aside more often... I dunno...in any case, this very nasty game, while it has had quite a number of plays, needs to hit the table a few more times.

Thishas set aside for a while now. Like Mykerinos, this is a middle to light weight game that I feel has always been overlooked. We played this alot when it first came out, and it's about time that we introduce it again.
