I like to buy games.

But not every game I bought could find someone to play with.

The reasons could be someone in your playing group don't like the game; or the game require more players than you could found; the game rule are just to complicated; etc.

My group think this game is too complicated to learn. Currently don't know what to do about it.

One thing is clear, I won't buy any new COIN titles in the future.

My wargame opponent think this game is to complicated and refused to learn. I end up trading it for Asia Engulfed.

My group think this game takes too long and the decisions in this game are not meaningful.

Currently don't know what to do about the game.

My gaming buddies take one look at the sheer size of the campaign game and suddenly there is yard work to do or the house has to be painted or they have to go to the ballet! Anything but giving the game a try.

I have the same problem as the TC.

Not saying my friends would refuse to play COIN, but after I went through the solo tutorial, I knew my 1 AP friend would destroy the experience of this game. So it's more like a game my friends CANNOT play with me laugh

I have this with expansions and a lot of promo cards. I like to play it solo and sometimes I can convince my girlfriend to play it.

However my gaming group tried it once and their response was lukewarm: maybe because it is difficult to frame it in a precise genre, since it looks like a party game but it isn't.

No body want to play it multi-players again after one go.

My friends comment is: it is a 2 players wargame disguised as a multi-players game, as there is absolutely no interactions between the anti-Prussia faction.
