My game closet is bursting at the seams. There are a lot of games in there that have never been played or haven't been played in years. There are also games in there that get played regularly.

That being said, it is time to thin the herd. My wife and I are planning to go through our games in a mostly alphabetical order. After playing them we will decide to either keep it, trade\sell it, or give it one more play to finalize our decision.

My Rating: thumbsup It was enjoyable and works well as a 2 player game.

Wife's Rating: thumbsupthumbsup That was fun. Let's definitely keep this one.

History: I have always had a soft spot for Spiel des Jahres winners. I saw this one for a decent price on the BGG marketplace so I picked it up a while back. I was so excited I even ordered English cards from ArtsCow.

My Rating: thumbsdown It just didn't cut it for me. It was a little to slow but over to quickly if that makes any sense.

Wife's Rating: thumbsdown I don't see myself wanted to play this again.

Final Decision: This one is going on the for trade\sale pile.

Winner: Girl
