This game just takes forever, so naturally, it doesn't really see a lot of play... Sadness

I've played this since I was a kid, so I get geeked to get it on the table, but man, convincing others to play is a huge chore...

My Shenomad is a dedicated euro-geek. I would like to get a little ameritrashy now and then, but she's not into it. So it sits on the shelf...

I love this little gem of a card game, but my gaming group is kinda "meh" about it, so it languishes in my games closet.

I love the game. Got just about everyone in my family and through the list of friends to play a few times each but then hit a stone wall.

I've even developed some custom races and powers and still no one to play with. arrrh

Same issue as Through the Ages. Just takes too long for many Euro players.

Duel of Ages is one game I'd like to play more than my game group want! I really like this game! One of my grup got stung bad by poor dice rolls in one of the games they played, and it's been hard to get back to the table! Though they said fr my birthday they'd let me bring it out - guess I'll have to wait till next year

Another one is Mission: Red Planet, I really like this game, but my game group are fairly disinterested in it... a pity as I think it's a really cool little game!

Cheers,

Giles.

Until my youngest is old enough to play, we have to wait for my cousin & his wife to come play with us. I Love this game, we played this all the time while I was growing up. Just 2 more years, and we should be able to do this in house, as it were.

I really love this blind bidding auction game, but all my gaming friends either hate it or hate auction games in general or just find it too confusing. Oh well...

Fair enough it's not the greatest game ever but it can be loads of fun and with the right crowd very funny.
Problem is that here...
a) It's hard to get a good five players.
b) I don't know the right crowd.
c) The humour would be lost on my Japanese friends.

My regular opponents are spatially challenged so, while I can (very) occasionally convince them to play Taluva, Roborally has been banned from their game table.

Apparently, some people are put off by games with too many bits. I *adore* this game, but am mostly stuck playing solo.

Such a fun game, but alas, my roomate hates wargames with a passion. This also defeats the purpose of purchasing any expansions as well
