This is a list to avoid the following situation.

You arrive at Gamenight with that fancy new game of yours and everybody is psyched to play. You open the box and out come a bazillion pieces, which in itself is not the main problem. The main problem is the sticker sheet that also comes out of the box. And there goes the play time, sacrificed on the altar of spontaneousness, with you sitting there and putting stickers on wooden bits until the wee hours of the morning.

Ok, I might have let myself get carried away a bit here, but still... it's just not plain fun to spend the first hour of game night putting stickers on woodern pieces.

This list is a warning, people: Always check the contents of a box thorougly. And punch and sticker your stuff at home. You might be happier because of it.

The game that sparked this geeklist. It's only a small sticker sheet, but there are tons of wooden meeples, and you have to put a baby sticker on each of them which is fiddly and takes forever. In addition you have to put hat stickers on the male meeples (on both sides nonetheless). This is even fiddlier and quite time consuming.

The most time consuming here is to get the playing pieces out of the plastic grating... an arduous task which may be faciltated with a proper knife.

Maria has a few of those to stick. The good part is that it's easier to stick rounds over squares, in my opinion.

This one had a lot of stickers. All in all, we probably spent more time applying stickers than actually playing (my daughter and I are the two people in the world who are underwhelmed with this game).

Great game. While not a great number of stickers, I did groan at the two sticker pages for dwarves and elves and gnomes. To make it even more complicated, not every piece that is the same shape is stickered the same way. (Minor difference, but it did make me feel like I did something wrong.)

This did harken me back to Village, which was a worse experience but only by a small margin. Fortunately, I have young daughters who love stickers and I put them to good use on this one.

It was the second edition of this game that in most recent memory pained me the most. Dozens of tiny stickers that had to be affixed to tiny wooden pieces. This was a tweezers affair for a good hour!

The stickers were exactly the same size of the disks!!1! This means if you're just a micron off, the sticker will overhang and catch on your finger as a constant reminder that you didn't sticker them to OCD perfection. Agonizing!

Also, a bunch of people (not me) goofed up the parasite stickering due to an absence of instructions.

The most stickers I've ever had to apply in a game. But to be perfectly honest, I loved putting all those stickers on all those discs, just like I love punching out sheets of chits, bits, tiles, etc. guess I'm just weird that way.

The first edition of Serenissima had over a hundred finicky little sticker flags that had to be carefully wrapped around flag poles and ship masts — not to mention about a hundred plastic resource cubes and dozens of ships that had to be removed from sprues.

Fun area control game, but it took me forever to get the nationality stickers on the immigrant discs. And I'm not sure if all the Kickstarter Pandasuarus versions are this way, but my English discs, which are supposed to be white, are a sort of off mint-green hue.

This one taught me to use tweezers next time...

The game contains 10 unit countersheets (280 counters/sheet) and 3 marker countersheets (280 counters/sheet)for a grand total of around 3640 counters.

The picture above is just the Axis forces.

And that is before you clip the corners off them...

Over 100 figures, all needing placement on bases, which in turn need stickers on them. Oh, and some of the figures are multiple parts. If memory serves me correctly (it has been ages since I last looked inside my edition) there were also flags for several units which you needed to arrange properly. Did I mention that one type of units had slightly too thick bars under their feet to properly fit in the bases provided? I don't remember whether or not you needed to cut the figures from sprees first or not.
