This is a geeklist for games where you can lose and yet still have the victorious satisfaction of fulfilling your goals.

So what games are out there were you can lose and still feel "happy"?

I asked the question in a recommendations thread and now I'm turning it into a geeklist.

Feel free of course to comment and discuss and add any and all items...just explain your thoughts (or at least mention that its just something you've heard about / wanna try)

Have fun!

This mama started it all for us. We had kinda fallen outta gaming for a couple years and I bought this game....and we played it at least 80 times in the second half of 2009. As you might guess we're kinda burned out on it...but damn, its a fun game where you can have that thrill of just hitting your tickets - and who cares if that loser across the table happened to get more points?

(btw we never play cutthroat so that most likely helped us collect a lot more tickets than we really ever should have!)

This is a game that I am utterly horrible at (scoring wise) but I absolutely love it. I think what I really like is when you make that great clue that works just right (or just barely avoids failing). Its such a rush to flip over those last two tokens and see that someone actually guessed your insane statement correctly!

So yeah, for me there are definitely take-away moments of "mini-victories" that are all that I care about.

Ok...this doesn't exactly count cause we never finish the damn game (so there's never any losers) but yeah we have a lot of fun collecting creatures (with the occasional skirmish) and then quitting for dinner never to return to that game....

I agree with Kevin. Even when we lose, if it was a well played effort we pat ourselves on the back for our valiant attempt, chalk it up to fate and try again.

I totally agree with Kevin's assessment about that share feeling of frustration and comic disaster being basically similar to a feeling of accomplishment (in spite of not being not accomplished enough). There is something epic about utter destruction that is well worth losing a game over...

"I feel fulfilled in Agricola for putting together a large farm."

Which was actually somewhat opposite to what I (me, justus) first felt with the 'gric. That said, now I think I do appreciate the beauty of getting a nice food engine running...though for some reason I do play this game in a more competitive mood than we do TtR.

"Winning in this game doesn't always mean winning via the scoreboard....

this game is more about developing your players with upgraded skills, you could lose the game 2-0, but be in FAR better shape than the "winner", especially if you kill off several of his players, gain alot of SPPS, and level up your roster with more skills"

"I did not enjoy Puerto Rico with two, Its sibling San Juan plays great with two though, and this is one of our most played and liked two player games. There is no direct confrontation in this game, sounds like that could be good thing for you. If she enjoys the "building" aspect of Titan, perhaps she would enjoy the engine building aspect of San Juan."

I (justus) actually have San Juan and we utterly played it out. That said, I feel that it ened up being a race to the biggest points and so we never really got the "I lost but feel ok" vibe like we did with TtR.
