I liked this.

I had never played it before. I play two game...the first I came in last with 13 points, the next I won with 30ish. It takes a game (or two) to get the swing of this, but I like it

Knizia has yet to let me down. I bought this after demoing it and loved it.
It is very much "Hey! That's My Zombies" but it is different enough that I liked it,

I got this for free at the Board Room and it isn't even worth the zero dollars I paid for it nor is it worth the gas expended by it's weight in the car back.

Although, it has fun parts, if you like watching a train wreck

Well, I like Apples to Apples and Rorschach (also known as Freud's to Freud's) was a cool twist on the idea

Again, a free game at the Board Room. But this one is good! It's light, fun, and great for moderate board gamers.

Plus, it comes with plastic worms

I like T2R, and I though this was another interesting train game. I went to the dealer's room to buy this, realized it was 130$, and promptly left. I'll buy it if I can find it for ~50$

Most games require you to generalize OR specialize...It seems that doing BOTH in this game is the optimal strategy.

I owned this before going on the trip, but playing it over and over at Origins was still fun, especially with custom races
