It all started with my uploaded photo of the gorgeous game, SIESTA.....



I accidently uploaded it to FIESTA !!!!!????
It is still there with all the images of Fiesta. I formally requested ADMIN to remove said image a week and a half ago...it is still there, much to my chagrin!blushblushblush

So far, you BGGers have been civil, with only these two comments:

I believe this is a picture of Siesta...
Give that man a cigar!

Anywhooo...Are there any other games out there that are confused with other games? I will add the games I know of....
Please add more if more exist!

You're the party host, but you've got the ingredients for you skewers totally mixed up. Have your guests help you sort them all out. The winner is the one who skewers all their ingredients first. Mmmmmmà..delicious! 4 skewers and 40 ingredients in four colors.

This abstract boardgame is made completely of wood and is quite beautiful. The object of the game is to score the most points before one of the types of pieces are all gone. There are Roofs in each of the players' colors, which are used to score points when they cast a Shadow. A Sun token is placed next to a Roof and will score the Roof's owner points for each Shadow placed on the other side. The Shadows score points for the Roof's owner, and can be scored multiple times if surrounded by multiple Roof/Sun combinations. Each turn, a player places three pieces in any combination, but must score at least one point per turn. The game ends when one player plays his last Roof or the last Sun or Shadow is played.

In Settlers of Catan, players try to be the dominant force on the island of Catan by building settlements, cities, and roads. On each turn dice are rolled to determine what resources the island produces. Players collect these resources to build up their civilizations to get to 10 victory points and win the game. Multi-award-winning and one of the most popular games in recent history due to its amazing ability to appeal to non-gamers and gamers alike.

4. Board Game: The Settlers of Canaan [Average Rating:6.78 Overall Rank:1928]

Settlers of Canaan takes place in the territory of Canaan off the coast of the Great Sea. Each Player represents a tribe of Israel as they seek to settle the land of Canaan. The time period of the game spans the time of Joshua's conquests of Canaan (Joshua), the turbulent years ruled by judges (Judges) through the choosing and crowning of King David (I & II Samuel).

The game uses the same basic mechanics as Settlers of Catan but adds some unique elements, similar to the Historical Scenarios. In the case of this game, players build the wall of Jerusalem by contributing bricks. The player who contributes the most bricks earns victory points and the right to use a special "rule-breaking" power of his/her choosing. This is contested in the same manner as "the longest road" from Settlers.

You can read my thread here about asking for Goa at my FLGS, and the guy thinking I said Go.

Martin Wallace game - Each player receives a number of ships and cities. By negotiation and skillful trade of "commercial cards" the players earn the necessaries for travel and expansion of their empires. Cities earn points based on size and location. Strategically-placed ships are worth points as well.

This can be mistaken for the less popular...

Tyrus is a game of careful application of power, force and influence in order to affect the best outcome possible for your political party. Throughout the game you must try to carefully conserve your troops, because you never know when they will be needed.
