I must admit I'm pretty lousy at entering my plays, so perhaps these games are being used, but not recorded. I think these are all really good or better games, but never (apparently) see the light of day. As I finish the initial draft, I am reminded how ancient I must appear to the standard BGG user, in that, not only do I own all these dinosaurs, I actually prefer them to Puerto Rico! How nuts is that? So, go ahead and let me know how crappy these games are compared to Goa...

Could almost appeal to some of the German-gamer crowd (in fact, there is a German version) but there are a lot of tables and dice rolling, and the Avalon Hill version is pretty sparse as far as art goes. Despite all this, the theme is great, the manueuvering can be a lot of fun, and no end of opportunity for role-play.

My all-time favorite. Unfortunately, I get to play so rarely, I left my copy in the USA, and have not had the need to have it sent to me. But I would play at a moments notice, for sure.

My play is the only one listed, and I'll use this list to try to entice someone else to try a game with me. Lots going on: limited knowledge, spy rings, devastation of the land, economics, warfare. Playtime can be adjusted to the available time, and 'any number' of players can play.

Another one where my play is the only one listed. Really an interesting game with a unique theme- battle for control of a sunken North America. Interesting background with a reasonable play time and not-overpowering counter density. Worth some more plays.

Absolutely gorgeous game has no plays. I've read the rules, and believe it playable, but not for the faint-hearted. Rather unforgiving economics, and possibility of almost unreachable victory conditions for some players.

But with some recent plays, it may reach the '10' mark soon. I've only played solo, but interested in either the 2-player scenario or a try with a group of 4-6.

Another great game, in my eyes. Unique 'enter anytime, leave anytime' mechanics that still allow anyone to win makes it great for a convention. Flimsy components will not appeal to the dedicated German-style game player, but a nice experience still to be had.

Nice for a longer evening (although can be played in a shorter time period) where the joy is in the negotiation and generation of the family line. Pretty to look at, as well, from the time Games Workshop could actually make games.

Surprised, actually, this classic had so few plays. Goodness knows, impossible to afford on the auction sites, so I figured people would be playing the copies they bought.

Right at 10 plays- takes 2 hours, but handles 8 players easily, and if one player knows the game, can keep it moving at a sprightly pace. More fun over a seris of games, though. Lots of imitators, no superiors.

No plays for this one? Such a pity. Tough rulkes, but some real storytelling seeds in there. More of an event than a game, but quite an event it is. I need to pull this out a few times.

A travesty, no plays. I should have entered my games. Such a great theme, and pretty good gameplay mechanics. Not-so-good production values, though, but what would one expect from a desktop publisher?

What an outstanding game with only 5 plays. Combat, diplomacy, economics, sieges, investment speculation, bidding... all wrapped up with some wild random events, dice rolls, and done in about 3 hours. Took Kingmaker as its base and made it better, getting rid of the stalemates. Just talking about it is convincing me to set up at least a solo game.

The best exploration game I know for really getting the feel of how tough it may have been. Takes some time and the rule book is a bit of a mess, but quite an adventure unfolds as the dark continent is slowly exposed.

Great little solo trek to the Pole. I have yet to survive, but I like to play the early scenario, which is damn tough. I did make the pole my last game, but Hall expired from frostbite, and the survivors got stuck in bad weather about one move from an Aleut camp for an entire season and were tragically lost. Some great stories come out of this one.
