We all know that there are good games, bad games, and games that fall somewhere in the middle. Then there are games that for whatever reason, we really dislike them. We may not have good technical reasons for our hatred, it is just is what it is. Here are a couple of mine. What are yours?

Everyone loves pirates. From age 2 on my boys have worn eye patches and fake scars. Heck, even the mascot of the school I teach at is the Pirates. So what is not to like about the game that claims the name of the most famous of all the pirates? Well...it was just disappointing. Not once, but twice. This game could have been so much. It could have been exciting, swashbuckling, town pillaging, treasure hunting fun. Instead it was droll and drudgery. Disappointing me once was bad, but the second time...now when the term disappointment comes up, I think Blackbeard. When someone asks if there is a game that I don't like, this one immediately fills my mind with loathe.

I teach history and English. Every English teacher loves Scrabble right? Wrong. I don't know if it is my love of war games and complex strategy games, or my dislike for tile juggling language twisting strategy void board games. I don't know, but when Scrabble comes up, I feel a little ill. When it gets put on the table, I leave the room.

Now don't get me wrong on this one. It was a good entrance to war games for me back in the day. And it still is. But I can't count the number of times someone has asked about a game that is set up at my house and someone says, "oh, it's like Risk". Or if a student finds out that I am a gamer they will say "oh, you play Risk...I always win...I just...". And there is no way to explain to people that Combat Commander or The Napoleonic Wars is not like Risk.

Now I am just being honest here. I know this game is loved by many and has an aggressive, and potentially dangerous, following. I really thought I would like the game. I like space. I like blowing things up. I like cool ships. But the combination of racing to build your ship against other people trying to grab the same tiles only to then watch your ship break apart like a NATO war coalition is more than my nerves can handle. I owned it. I traded it. I hope the bloke that got it loves it...but I hate it.

I hated this the first five times I played, even though I won three of those times.

The reason: AP--the math variety. I was so bored and annoyed by all the mathematics being tossed around and slow decision-making that I played it by the gut, with a diversification principle, and won most times.

Still hate it.

Really got tired of having every single attempt at fulfilling menu options thwarted by the person going before me. The game is fine, I just grow weary of play inadvertently causing all your plans to be thrown under the bus.

Love the look of the game though, it's just not a game for me. Went to the Games For Geekgold pile.

This has been a slowly building loathing.

I now hate the game. Again, I won the last time it was played--last weekend. I hate the way it is like a RPG in that it can really tank with the wrong group. Some people also get hurt feelings when its played. Some people die at turn two. That's brutal--and they get stuck waiting to play while we finish this pointless exercise.

I hate two things about this game. I will not play it for both reasons.

I hate how turn order is so important. It's rough if you sit behind the wrong person.

And I hate slavery.

Will not play this any more. Arguments by dullards inevitably ensue in this game, which is another which is group dependent. It's often like playing intramural volleyball where half of the team is playing cutthroat and the other half just wants to "have fun". It pi**es people off on both sides.

I played a mock-up of this game before it was available in the US. I loved it. Then I saw the US release. The board looked so chaotic compared to the hyper-orderly mock-up I played on. I've never played it since and irrationally avoid it. The odd thing is, I acknowledge that the board is attractive, it just looks so chaotic...

This is a game that I seriously hate to hate. How badly I want to like it. I can't help but feel this isn't a game. I feel like I could just read a book, then after I finish roll a die. If the die is higher than a 4, I win. The artwork and theme is wonderful, but when I'm going to play a game, especially one that is three hours or more, I want something that has substantial mechanics. I could watch a movie or read a book if I want theme only. (I'm in a minority here, but if this game was anything like Android I'd love it)

Dishonorable Mention

The decisions in this game seemed too obvious, and there is nothing more frustrating to me than waiting for your turn, then flipping your race over into decline and waiting once again for your turn. I won't touch this game ever again. That said, I like the combination of races and what they tried to do, but otherwise the game is too stale for me to ever want to play it again.

I love Carcassonne.

But my closest gaming buddy hates the game.

He has been quoted as saying:
That is the worst game ever!
It is a pointless game - too much luck.

His favorite games are:
Agricola
Pillars of the Earth

And he likes games like:
Settlers of Catan (dice rolling = luck)
Ra (pick tiles from bag = luck)

I just cannot figure out his disconnect between Ra/Carcassonne
Ra involves picking tiles to form sets of rivers, monuments, culture, etc.
Carcassonne involves picking tiles to form sets of roads, cities, cloisters, etc.

Ok....so I will probably be shelled for this entry...but I just don't like the game. I picked it up years ago because of all the hype and wanted to get a new game for the group. Boy...did it dissapoint me! I didn't like the whole experience. Maybe I just don't like auction/bidding games and this one just seem to get on my nerves to the point where it was no fun whatsoever.
It was traded away after a couple of painful plays!

Ugh.

I've never liked traditional card games: poker, hearts etc whose name&rules I don't even bother to memorize. Tichu feels just like all the others to me. And that's ok, on other circumstances I'ld avoid it just like I usually do.

But many of the members on my game group love this game. My girlfriend, her sister and their friends love it too. So, I've got 36 plays of tichu. That's 36 plays too many. But I'm sort of obliged to put up with it since they're my partners for so many heavy, long and brilliant games.

And on the top of it, hardcore fans insist this isn't all luck. Right... I hate this game and I've won plenty of times against those who've played it hundreds of times. You just have to learn 2 or 3 things you should do and that's it.

I don't see the fun in a game that requires you to tell boldface lies and stab people in the back. If I wanted to do that, I would run for public office. Gee a game where being the biggest @sshole means you win -- whoopee!

Bought it (in 1984), played it once, then promply traded it for the original Squad Leader -- best trade I ever made.

Wow, do I hate this game.

I hate listening to endless attempts at negotiations.

I hate people who offer future promises of the second blue bean they draw when the clock is on an odd number as long as they have already harvested x. The ridiculous deals can be painful.

I hate people trying to take advantage of others and having to constantly run interference to keep one player from running away with the win.

God, this game drives me insane.
