My friends and I play boardgames regularly. But some games just never seem to make it to the table.

Some games are just hated by one or more members of the group so they either try to veto the choice or just nag and make our lives miserable until nobody wants to play the game anymore.

here are some examples.

one of our players goes :

" how can it be that you draw a horse again and I draw a chicken for the second time. My cashflow is gone now. Totally random and luck based game"

One of my childhood gems just never sees the table because my friend thinks is the most elaborate way to play goose chase in the world what with all the cards, couters, boards, expansions and everything.
Just putting it on the table would be a game in itself taking at least 45 minutes!
The 1983 edition just sits rotting away on my shelf with all the expansions included... what a shame. How I love this game from yesteryears!

I wonder why won't they buy my containers. They all seem to buy them from the guy next to me who is cheaper. Now I cannot do anything.

so let's just nag about the stupidity of the game beacuse they designed it in such a way that is impossible for me to win.

Bought in Essen once; opened box once; closed box once; put on shelf once. This game looks as bad as the title doez, maybe that's the reason we never picked up this game?

Who doesn't want to play a game about Italy? But why is it this game has that many nice special cards you never get to play with, because when it is your turn at last, it's off the board already? Why is Carthago totaly unreachable so actually nobody can win this game? ( nobody really loses this way as well....)
