So I preordered Agricola. But without animeeples I knew it was going to be a harder sell for my wife to play. So I waited till the mayday games animeeples arrived. She thought they were cute, one point. She had a hard time with the page after page of rules. ........... So tonight we play our second play of the family version. At the end she tells me she doesnot like the game.

Who else has a wife or girlfriend or husband or main gaming partner that doesnot like Agricola, or one of your other favorite games?

We have a 2 year old, so my wife is my only gaming partner. (95% of the time)



EDIT
I was asked what games my wife does like. Here is a list:

Zooloretto (But not Aquaretto)
Carcassonne
Guess Who
Settlers of Catan (But no expansions, other than 5-6 player)
Pitch Car (With a group)
Snorta!
Fluxx
She likes other, but cant think of them at work.

She said it's too much to handle. And said she isn't even interested in trying the version that uses cards.

My fiance Mary does not care for any game that is a pure strategy abstract such as Hive, Chess, Abalone or even Checkers. She says she cannot think clearly enough to plan more than a couple moves ahead. Personally, I don't think she's giving herself enough credit. Her favorite games are ones that combine luck with strategy, such as Settlers of Catan, Cribbage or Empire Builder. At the other end of the spectrum, she also does not care for games which rely upon too much luck, such as UNO, even if they tend to go in her favor.

She also dislikes this. But loves Zooloretto.

She doesnot like how you define the size of the enclosures.
