Have you ever given up on a game because you can't seem to figure out how the scoring works or the rules are too friggin' confusing? The sad part is, they're probably all good games.

Played the game at Origins. I thought it was okay until we started scoring. Yikes. After the sixth question that started with "But what if...?" I thought "Next..."

I know everyone loves this one, but I still don't understand the difference between internal and external conflicts. It's a mental block or something. The rulebook we have with our group's copy (English edition) has contradictions in it too, so we're not even sure we played it right to begin with. I'm hoping to sit down sometime with someone who loves the game and can teach it correctly.

Tried twice to sit down and get through the rulebook. We packed it back up and moved on. Two of the players were avid train gamers too.

I've only played once, but I never understood the scoring. It was repeated round after round - what, 14 rounds, maybe? I still had no idea how many points anyone had for the final round.

We never seem to have paper or pencil or a calculator when we play this one. Quick! Are my 5 checks at $175,000 apiece worth more than her 6 at $125,000?!?!? And of course everyone is doing their math out loud talking to themselves on that final round when your tallying up your final net worth.

While this isn't ambush math like the list suggests, it is truely horrible math. It is like scrabble only you have to create numbers that are a power of 3, or prime..or some other obtuse rules. Math to play. Math to score.. math to make a terrible game!
