This negotiation game sounds right up my alley, and supporting up to 8 players makes it sound like a no-brainer. But I guess the theme or the play time doesn't make it enticing enough to my group.

This is probably more my fault - I have the *nice* version and the desire to play, but I do worry it may require more instruction than I care to teach. Usually I'll push San Juan instead.

The gameplay looks simple and short enough, but economics games tend to be a harder sell. Even so, I also have the expansion for this to support 7-8 players. Considering people like other Dirk Henn titles, maybe I need to sell it as "by the guy that made Alhambra".

I was able to get it out once for a short game, but I'd like to bring it out again.

Wolfgang Kramer and Michael Kiesling titles usually catch my eye because of the popularity of Tikal and the Mark series of games. Both of these game designers also have good games individually - Kramer had El Grande; Keisling had Vikings.

I have always heard great things about this game, and recently learned there is an Android version available, but this would be a nice game to play at a table. I think its age and look makes it a hard sell to get to the table.

Power Grid has been a difficult thing to push, mainly because it's a longer game, but also because it's an economics game. Now that the "deluxe" version is out, people may be curious enough to want to check it out.

Sounds like a fun game, but usually the negotiation games my group play are pretty light. Nothing Personal has a bunch of little parts.

Our group tried to play it at the end of a night, and that didn't go well. I've been meaning to get it out again.

Though a recent addition, I already know it'll be a little tricky to play because of the 3-5 player count, and because it's a negotiation game.
