These are titles that you LOVE.... or HATE. It generates enthusiasm or disgust, and rarely anything in between. I'll start this one off with one I think is definitely number one, but I'm having some problems thinking of others.

Some members of our group go bananas over this one and could play it every time. Others would rather play Russian Roulette. Nobody seems lukewarm.

This game is almost entirely chaotic, with no real skill involved. A lot of people like it because it's silly, lighthearted, and fun, while others hate it because there's no strategy involved; it's pretty much random who will win. I happen to like it, but I wouldn't want to play more than one or two games in a night.

Definite love or hate game. Quirky mechanic where streets are laid not by the players, but according to reasonably clear groundrules when any player places a tile.

I always enjoy this. So do several of my friends. Others are convinced that I just put roads whereever I feel like it and come up with a different convoluted excuse each time. Not a game for everybody.

This is a beautiful game... but there are a lot of people complianing that it is broken because of a bad first game. The problem IMHO here is that an inexperienced player is likely to be thrashed by his opponents if he doesn't build soon something to stop the initial egyptian rampage... which leads to imbalance in the game as everybody sharkes the unfortunate victim of a first turn attack more and more and more gaining combat victory points on each following turn...

I know people who swear by this game; know people who swear never to touch the game ever again. Maybe, it is the length of the game, but I have yet to come across someone who felt it was so-so.

I like this game very much and I had so far a lot of fun with people who also like this game. But I know also some people who would never play this game again, except that they are drunken ;-)

Here is one for the Love/Hate people!!!! This seems to fit the bill for EXTREME love or hate. I like the game...i find it enjoyable and fun to play. Others can't stand it....from the abstract map to the strange ways armies can be decimated in the roll of the dice!
