Those are welle apreciated games, but I really don't like them. Even if in my collection some are well rated because they are somewhat not bad, you will only make me play them if you put a gun on my head.

Remember: all comments are MY OPINION only. I don't pretend that what I say on the game is the general, all-encompassing truth of the game.

PS: feel free to add yours.

The game is one of the most uninteresting game I ever played. It is nothing more than a "ameliorated" dice game. No strategy in it. Nothing. And a few turns of bad luck can make you lose the game at the beginning, unable to reverse the situation until the torture ends with someone else winning.
Even '421' is more interesting.
Oh: and I forgot the money-sucking aspect of the extensions (5-6 players ext, Knightsetc ext, ***5-6Knightsetc ext***, etc).

More complicated than go.
Way less interesting than go: less strategy, less options.
And rules changing from time to time.
Really overrated.

Luck.
Not culture, only luck.
And boredom.

Roll dice.
Earn/pay.
Roll dice again.
Wow! Only interesting with some alcohol rules in it.

The killer doesn't know he did it.
And he wins if he tells the police he did.
I never found this game interesting as soon as I became more than 10 years old.

To have fun with this one:
- get an edition that concerns all the persons at the table. I got a Genus 1985 that no one can play around me (have to give it to my parents sooon)
- get people who have roughly the same culture than you
- most important: add some drinking rules

The last rule is necessary to have this a LITTLE interesting.

If conditions are not met: forget.

How could I forgot this one?
Strategy that only relies on dice rolling! Wow! Impressive! Thinking is not even needed to play it.
