This is a list of games that we've either never played or haven't been played much. We want to evaluate them for this year's no ship math trades. Our tastes have changed over the years and we want to keep our collection up to date.

We're not sure how many we will get through, so I've ordered the list based on geek rating, with the idea of hitting the most popular games early on. We only participate in 2 or 3 no ship math trades a year so hopefully we'll get through the list before the last one.

I'm hoping that making this geeklist will provide us with extra motivation to get them all played. I'll comment on them as we go.

The second edition is way better and we pulled the stuff from the first edition that integrates with the second edition. So this makes this non-tradable. But we can at least pull it off the game shelf.

This game was amusing when we first got it, but we've found that it takes too long to finish, and most folks that play it with us just find it frustrating.

Trade pile.

Ok, we talked about this one for awhile after our second play. We aren't big on games that are mostly combat. I asked for this one because I thought the legends would add enough to it to make it interesting to us. But they just don't. The time track seems pretty unforgiving. We didn't feel like we had time to do anything with our characters. Its definitely puzzly, but a little too hard for our tastes.

So, off to the trade pile it goes.

So we played this one last month with our day night group. Since it had been such a long time since we had played, and we were playing with a couple of folks who have never played before, we did not play with the traitor.

There were one or two people in the group who really enjoyed the game. Unfortunately it was neither my husband nor myself. We just aren't fans of the mechanics, and we know the traitor variant won't help. The play comes down to one of two basic options. One, you have a hand strong enough to go on a quest and hope you don't get screwed. Or two, you have a helper hand and you hang out at Camelot. Either way, we just don't enjoy it. It strikes me as rather abstract for a themed game, but what do I know?

Onto the trade pile!

We like the aspect of putting on the shows, but we still don't like the bidding mechanic

But we're also getting pickier about games we keep as far as how they play with two players. This one doesn't, so thats a big nail in its coffin.

Ok, we played this twice over the weekend. The short story is that my husband likes it and I am ambivalent, so we will be keeping it.

The longer story is that I feel I must not understand the strategy of this game. I don't really see how you can both keep your deck trimmed and acquire advanced research cards. Obviously I would need to put some more time into this game. But I don't see me doing that when we could play Race for the Galaxy instead. But if my husband suggest playing, I won't turn the game down.

After a new play, we've decided this game isn't for us. My husband likes it but I'm not crazy about it. I like deckbuilders, but its a little too brain-burning, at least for me. Since our votes were split, we went with the age-old question: Who would we play it with? The answer was: nobody. It's too complex for most of our game group members. The ones who would probably get into it suffer from severe AP. It would take hours and hours to play. And the only game I'm willing to play that long is Arkham Horror

Surprisingly, Owen and I are on the same page about this one. Its going in the trade pile. While I knew I wasn't keen on keeping it because I don't care for abstract strategy games, Owen does like them so I thought he'd want to keep it. But his thoughts on it are that while he doesn't think its a bad game, it strikes him more as a kids game. He said he wouldn't suggest playing it given the other abstracts in our collection.

We made our determination after playing a 4 player game.

This is not a game for us. We'd rather just play gin rummy with cards. Or better yet, just gin.

We've played this now and the jury is in. Even though it does have a fair amount of take-that, we like it! Its more thinky than I was expecting. I mean, if you hand in cards, you even have to be cognizant of which card you place on top.

This is a keeper, but I don't think we'll introduce it to any of our game groups. It wouldn't be a good fit with any of them.

I'm surprised it only took one play of this game for us to decide whether or not to keep it. I think this game is definitely an improvement over Catan Card Game as it is more forgiving. But I'm ambivilant over it, but my husband really likes it, so we'll be keeping it. I think the biggest reason is that it gives you a quick taste of Catan without actually having to drag Catan out And to me, it is a vast improvment over Catan simply because each player is guaranteed to get a resource every turn. Also, it played very quickly which is a plus. We haven't tried the themed games though. Those will have to wait for another time.

Keeper.

Well, this game plays heavier than I remembered. I think I'd be ok with it if it were just to 7 vp, but 10 is a little too long for me. I wouldn't suggest playing it. Having said that, my husband likes it. I don't dislike it enough to refuse to play. So we'll be keeping this one.

So we tried this two player but made the mistake of playing just one character each. We weren't liking it very much so decided to play 2 characters apiece and that was much better. However, this game is a lot like Robinson Crusoe, that we aren't sure we'd play this over Crusoe.

We're going to hold onto it until we get a chance to play RC again and reevaluate again.

We liked the idea of this game, the time "travel" element in placing the cards. But in practice, it requires a lot of strategizing several steps ahead. And I'm just not a fan of these types of games anymore. My husband likes it, but not enough to torture me with it Also, its the type of game that, if you screw up your card placement in the beginning of the game, there's really no way to fix it later.

So we aren't big on games with a lot of negative interaction, unless that is the whole point of the game like Star Realms. Quite a bit of the content of this game is geared either towards wounding mages or defending mages. And if we don't play that part of the game, we will be only playing half of this game. We think that the hidden objectives mechanic is neat, but it isn't enough to make this worth our time. We have other worker placement games we enjoy more.

So this is a game we backed before we fully realized that we aren't fans of dungeon crawlers. But we didn't panic, as we hoped the story cards would add enough to make up for it. Turn it into a more hybrid game.

The story cards do add a little something, but unfortunately, not enough for us. In a game, as the hero you'll have a max of 12 story choices to make. There are a number of challenges that only give you one choice instead of two. So that is not good. Plus, the story entries may or may not give you any Omen or Treasure cards to fight for, so sometimes (I don't know the ratio) you are only fighting for experience points and reward tokens. Meh. Plus, the outcome of the dice challenges don't affect the story at all. So really, you could just remove the story cards and have a random deck of attribute icons to determine the type of challange.

I fully admit that our expectations may have been too high and/or incorrect, but this game just didn't really do much for us.

Ok, we got a chance to play this tonight. We played it twice. It's not a bad game, but it just doesn't do much for us. And we normally like dice chuckers.

Off to the trade pile to find a good home...
