Even though long extensive reviews seem te be the most popular reviews on BGG, I myself just don't have the time or the patience to read those.
I prefer quick overviews where I can get some insights into why this game may or may not be attractive to me.
So when I created my first reviews, I wrote them assuming there are more people like this out there, and my reviews will be targeted for that audience, and just consist of my pros and cons coming from:
1) First impressions (before playing my first game)
2) Impressions after the first game
3) Current feelings (after at least 10 plays)

The "after 10 plays" part is important to me. One play is often not enough to judge a game (although a very bad game can often be judged as bad after a single play). I have seen plenty of reviews based on one play, and decided I want to have a better (and often more fair) feeling of a game before I recommend or advise against picking up any game.

Having posted about thirty reviews now - and having seen the comments and likes - I am confident that there are indeed people interested in this style of review.

So, I have now created a list of all my reviews up to date, and I will add an entry every time I post a new one, so if anybody is interested, they can subscribe to this list.

I have ordered the list in alphabetical order, so the first or last is not (necessarily) the game I liked most or least.
For each review I have included the final conclusion, my rating and a link to my full review.

End conclusion (well, for now):
I host some larger get togethers a couple of times a year, and some people (including my wife) always request this. I’m sure this will keep seeing plays for several years, and if new sets of cards are released it may stay forever.

End conclusion (well, for now):
I have now brought this out in a couple of different gaming groups, and everybody has liked it, no matter whether they were mostly casual players or Terra Mystica lovers.
I don’t think it has huge staying power per group (once you have beaten the final dungeon, there is not much incentive to try again), but I am I sure I will keep bringing it to different gaming friends for quite a while.

End conclusion (well, for now):
This game gets raving reviews on one end, and lot of criticism from other people. For me the truth is in the middle; I like the game, but don’t love it.
Good game in my eyes, especially as a gateway game, but only in small dosages. I mainly still like the high player counts it supports, but occasionally still pull it out with smaller player counts too.

End conclusion (well, for now):
I started out rating this an 8, but I have lowered it a little recently, ending up at the same level as 7 Wonders itself. I think my wife and me are in the minority of people that actually like the two player version of the original 7 Wonders. We like duel also, but ultimately we decided that one 7 Wonders game is enough and that this is not different enough to warrant keeping both. Since we both like 7 Wonders as a multiplayer game also, that game has more use to us, and we have decided to trade this one away. I do still think this is a good game, and would play it more times if we didn’t already have the original 7 Wonders, but it’s just not special enough to keep around.
Well, at least my rating matches the theme cool

End conclusion (well, for now):
The game without expansions does not offer a lot of variability, and the two most interesting aspects of normal Agricola (the cards and the feeding) have been taken out of the game, making it less interesting to me, worse after ten games.
I might be looking into getting one of the two expansions, to give me more choices in every game, but my wife refuses to play it anymore, and since she is by far my main playing partner for two player games I decided to trade this game away. I don’t enjoy it enough to keep it around for the rare occasion when I play a two player game with somebody else.

End conclusion:
A very nice game when you want a shorter game, especially when playing with a large group.
It fills a niche for large groups that don't want to play traditional party games or werewolf kind of games; assuming you are OK to buy more than one copy.

End conclusion (well, for now):
This game has sky rocketed into my top ten in a very short amount of time, and sits at number two now.
I had rated this a nine first, because it's not that thinky and because of the alpha player risk, but after some more thought I realize that those two aspects are main factors in making it playable with my kids and "casual gamer" friends (if it was very thinky it would be too hard for them, and if there was no alpha opportunity, there would also not be an opportunity to do a bit of coaching them every now and then), so I decided to just rate it based on its value as a family friendly co-op (without getting too simplistic) or solo game with many ways to up the difficulty, giving it a very wide appeal to anybody that likes co-ops. So this is now my second game (out of 600+) that I gave the maximum rating.
LOVE IT!

End conclusion (well, for now):
The meanness diqualifies it as a great family game for me, and the luck factor makes it less fun to me to play with experienced gamers than normal Carcassonne.
If it didn’t have the Star Wars theme, I’d probably get rid of it. As it is, my family still asks for it every now and then (my son likes the theme, and my wife likes rolling some dice and the fact that this doesn’t have the fields) and I try not to be too mean when playing, so we still get some plays out of it.

End conclusion (final):
The basic concept and the cards are still very nice, but the gameplay does not do it justice. I think somebody could maybe make a truely wonderful game out of this with a lot of house ruling, but I do not have the game designer's blood or the willingness to experiment to try to fix it myself.
Given the theme, my wife and me really want to like this game, but after our last two ultra short games (and those happening while using the first story deck, which we considered the best of the four), we decided to give up, and I have since traded the game away.
Our search for a great game in the land of Oz continues...

End conclusion (well, for now):
It didn't lose its flavour after ten plays, it just never had much flavour to begin with.
Still, sometimes my mind is not up for a thinky game, and just socializing while playing a casual dice chucking game is acceptable to me then. So this ends up matching the description of a 4 on the BGG scale very well: not so good, but can be talked into it on occasion (although I would normally counter with a suggestion of Pass the Pigs first).

I originally rated it a 9, but dropped it down a little bit after spending a couple of games waiting a long time for the clue giver to give us a clue, only to receive a clue for two cards. Great game, but you need the right group for it to really shine.
Still, really liking it, and seriously considering to pick up the Disney version also, to play with my kids.

End conclusion (well, for now):
Works great as a filler (playing a couple of rounds if needed); I often have used this when having an evening with multiple players where we decide to split up into two different groups, each playing a different game. When the first group is done, they can play Coup while waiting for the other group to finish, so we can form different groups for a next round of games. Or play it at the start of an evening, while waiting for some people to arrive.

End conclusion (well, for now):
The new role doesn't add that much imho, but the factions and the fact that this expansion makes Coup playable with more people make me very happy I bought this and make me rate this expansion one star higher than regular Coup (this is rare for me, as I find in most cases that I like good games better without expansions that often take the focus away from good core gameplay).
However, if you're not planning to ever play Coup with more than five players, I wouldn't advise buying this, as I think this only has real value when playing with at least six

Nice addition to Dominion! Havn't tried the big expansions yet, and have to explore the two small expansions a bit further for a final conclusion, but so far this is our favorite small expansion.
Would definitly recommend this to anyone that owns Dominion and wants to add a little bit of variety.

By playing with one of the handicaps mentioned in my review, this became a quick playing game that's a challenge for me and the kids.
We never play only one game now. They like trying to beat me. It's a keeper!

(Based on me playing with handicap; without handicap it would score much lower)

End conclusion:
A good filler. For four players Love Letter may be a little better, but with 6 or 2, this would be my choice. But in any case; if you like Love Letter, I think chances are good you will like this as well.
And if you don't know Love Letter yet, why not start here instead?

End conclusion (well, for now):
When playing this kind of game I do prefer a longer game, with some more chance to develop things, but I think they succeeded very well in designing a "serious" game that fits in the amount that is normally reserved for fillers that are more based on luck or social interaction (or abstracts).
The combination of short and serious is not the best for me (not a big fan of abstracts either), but it offers a nice variation in filler options, and therefore it's a nice addition to my collection.
