Hello everyone, third geeklist for me. I found some slightly older more rare games that I wanna know if they are worth acquiring. Some of these games don't have videos reviewing them so its a bit harder to get a feel for the game via text review.

Let me know your thoughts on these games, any comments are appreciated!

I'm not sure what happened to this game but there is not a lot of copies floating around and only one video review. It seems like a real winner from the one video i watched though.

I watched a Scott Nicholson review of this game and he convinced me that this game was something i wanted, but does anyone else enjoy this game? Are the mechanics out of date?

Tom Vasel reviewed this one and explained that it needed the expansion to be any good. It seems like a pretty solid game to me but also doesn't seem to have a large following, any reasons why?

This game seems really cool, but there are no english reviews of it. A good word or two is all I need. I know Martin Wallace is a quality designer so I should probably just go ahead and get this one.

This game is #12 on the top 100, but does it hold up with the massive influx of new games? I try to avoid being in the cult of the new so I want to see if this game is able to stand the test of time.

seems like a fun little game but there are lots of people trading it off, is this one solid?

And since I am apparently on a Roman theme, thoughts on this would also be appreciated.

There is an old copy of this game sitting at my FLGS and I was thinking about picking it up, especially with the rerelease coming out soon. This any good?

Don't know anything about this game, but was recommended that I check it out. It seems interesting for the most part, but can anyone give me a second opinion?

This was suggested to me, I'm taking a look at the components and I'm liking what I am seeing, but is it worth a damn?
