Does this ever happen to you? There are some games that you like quite a bit and don't mind playing them, BUT you only play them when others suggest playing it? I mean, sure, there's nothing wrong with the game, in fact, you have a good time when you do play it, but you just wouldn't suggest playing it. If this happens to you, what are the games you like but never suggest, and why?

This game I have played 4 or 5 times. Heck, I even own it. It is also probably one of my favorite Friese games. Despite all that, I never suggest playing it and I only play it when others want to. I am not sure if I can even explain why with this one. I think I just need to be in the mood for this one for some reason.

I think I have the answer here. Aside from the time commitment, there are some folks who play this A LOT. I like the game, but it is very difficult to compete with those players. Also, it seems like those same people who play this an awful lot ask me to play it all too frequently.

This is another one with a big learning curve. Look, I'm not all that picky, I'll play almost anything, but you'll never hear me recommend playing this one. Sure, I'll play it with you every now and then, but I realize I will never, EVER be as good at this game as the ones who always suggest playing it. That said, I think it's a fine game. Weird.

The late-lamented number one game. Though it is not my favorite by a long shot, it is certainly a good enough game that I am generally more than willing to play. However, I find that I play it frequently enough to suit me simply playing it when others suggest it or bring it out. Thus, it is a game I never suggest.

A great game but not something I'd suggest.
