I've written a few Top XXX lists on paper over the last few years, but have never gotten around to actually making one up.

Then Huber updated his Bi-Yearly list and it got em thinking about it again. But, as always, I was 'slow' at getting to it. By now it's getting vogue, but hey I'll still do it, but with a twist.

To follow my monthly list, I'm going to only list my top games that aren't in the BGG Top 200 (at the time of this list)

Like Ben, I'm not going to include any games only played once.

I've Dropped out expansions (including standalone games that 'expand' a family), other editions listed separate, and 'miniature games' (as known by 'miniature gamers').

Everything in a quotation box is from my comments.

So, here we go....

I don't remember when and why I picked this one up. But, it's a very unique game. I've only played it a few times, but would like to have played it more. It would rank higher, but it's really not a game you can pull out with just anyone. There are a lot of people this will never work.

Quote:
Massively chaotic!

Bad? Not for everyone.

I've played both rule sets.

The basic is ultimately 100% tactical. It seemed frustrating to the other players at the table. I did start to see some strategy on how to 'spread' your pieces. But, ultimately it was agreed to go to the advanced.

With the two actions a turn instead of one makes it a bit more controllable. Still very tactical. The scoring cards though make the game. Deciding when to score and not letting the cards force you too score is very fun.

Well, back to back Fragor Games games. This one would rank higher, but it seems to be a 'fragile' game that can spiral out of control for some people. Plus, it seems to often have an abrupt end.

Quote:
I love the pieces to this game. The first game was interesting. Played a full 5 player game. Maybe that was too much for a learning game. I really liked the marrying and the dynamic of having to 'help' someone else out and choosing between. The game did drag some at first, but it went quickly at the end. So, a lot of people got 'stuck' with people in the church at the end. Those '-' points might be a little to harsh. It seems like that might out weigh the entire game up .


Poll
Ok, so I do enjoy many of the Fragor games. But, only 2 made my Top 50.

What do ya'll think of them?

Despite my negative sounding comments, I do enjoy this one from time to time.

Some prefer the 'strip down' bidding 'only' version Charon Inc., but I like the addition of the 'route' building in this rendition.

Ok, it's on the list because I love pushing things around on a board. But, I have to admit the 'card version' reimplementation plays with the same feel. So, either could just as well be listed as game number 40.

Quote:
I use to think I wasn't into bidding games. But the multiple round blind bidding in this is fun. Some say the spells are to over powering, but there seems to be plenty of people with spell counters. So I really haven't seen it. But, have only played a few times.

An interesting 'bidding' game. I like how each section has it's own rules. The 'actions' may be a bit to much for the game.

I just threw it in on a order to get free shipping even though I hadn't heard anything about it. I enjoy Pillars and figured I'd like to see what 'the sequel' most look like.

A beautiful board and nice components. Although in our first play we did see some 'errors'. I'm not one to really grip about it, but I guess it could be annoying to others. To be fair, so far it was just one card that is in error.

It, however, plays very different then pillars. Each person has a deck of cards. similar to roles to pick from, so you don't have to worry about not getting the action you want.

You play actions to get things to help build and to give things to the king. The game starts right off putting you under stress. There is a reason you start the game with a score of 8. It's because the game will punish you for not meeting certain minimums each round.

When I pulled it out, a friend was 'hey, I don't want something 'replacing' my pillars. I said, 'don't worry, this isn't a worked placement'. I noticed he made a comment elsewhere on the Geek, that it is different. 'But, one is better, this one'. The Game left me wanting more.

I like bidding games and this one has a fun bidding mechanic

Quote:
I really liked that in the game, you have a set number of cards to us for 'bidding' throughout the game. Once used they are out of the game. They come out random, so that could be a game breaker to some people. To me it just adds to the 'excitement'.
