You know what im saying, you get a cool game that you think everyone will love, you read the all rules, and you finally pull the game out to show your friends and hope they get the same OMG factor as you did, but you get this reaction every time "Thats dumb,hey wanna play halo 3?" soblue

I was so dissapointed, I was browsing the net looking for games and found this, I wanted it so badly. After days of searching ebay for one with all the pieces for $80 (Didn't come with book of quests and some pieces were broken although it said 100% and near mint!) They game came the keller's keep expansion compleate! (Not sure if this was an error or a "Don't rate negative feedback for my screw up in the description take this to shut you up" thing.) So I get it, read the rules and finally when friends come to my house i wip this game out thinking they will love it. They stare at it, say thats dumb, and we end up playing either monopoly or halo 3.

I think the drab color scheme really scares people off.

In my high school biology class, we had to capture various insects, classify them and present our collection for a grade. In the process, we learned a lot about the differences between insects as well as the whole process of classifying biological organisms. I found the diversity within the Insect kingdom fascinating.

This game does a good job of simulating some of the bits and pieces that go into the make up of an insect. Alas, no one else is as interested in this as I am.

He's looking real sharp in his 1940's fedora. He's got nerves of steel, an iron will, and several other metal-themed attributes. His fur is water tight and he's always up for a fight.

He's a semi-aquatic egg-laying mammal of action. He's a furry little flat-foot who'll never flinch from a fray. He's got more than just mad skills, he's got a beaver tail and a bill.

I actually got this on the table once, and then someone said, "Is this game all that complicated?" So we put it back away.

I did eventually get it on the table and played it, but we started with 4 players and one did drop out before the game was too far underway to turn back. So I've played one 3-player game of Indonesia. Best thing ever.

I have one group I go to where they will never play any game I suggest, no matter what it is.
At the other group get new games the most often and so I get one of my games played each week.
Die Macher however seems to be loathed for it's length at the second...
