I did this Geeklist about a year ago
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist.php3?action=view&listi...

Every now and then I like to look at the comments on the bottom of the list for popular games. Usually comments fall into the following category
1) It was horrible! (we were playing it wrong, and didn't know it)
2) It was horrible! (we didn't get it)
3) It has horrible art/components! (I had to bitch about something)
4) It was the most horrible experience I've ever had in my life! (I like hyperbole)
5) I hate XXX-type games! (I shouldn't have played it in the first place)
6) 'Funny' observation here! (I'm not funny)
7)Dom makes me sick. He is the most hideous person i know. He doesnt love emma birtwistle at alllllllll. He also likes to send filth to his sister via txt messaging. I feel that this isunacceptable, and if you would like to complain pls ring dom now on 01943 816283 (I'm completely nuts)

I will kindly translate comments, no disrespect intended, naturally. Please feel free to add your own.

"I feel that I am being generous giving this game a 1. I was taken in by all of the high ratings and having already gained an appreciation of other Euro games (i.e. Starfarers of Catan) I tracked down a copy. I received it in the mail and tried it... and couldn't sell it on Ebay fast enough. I was genuinely unimpressed. And WHAT is the deal with Euro games and wooden pieces - enough already! At least they got a clue when they releasesd Starfarers of Catan in the U.S. and included great brightly colored PLASTIC pieces. El Grande was an El Flop in my opinion. "

I am offended so much by wood that I can't even remember anything else I didn't like about this game! This message co-brought to you by the American Plastics Council.

"I really dislike this game - mostly due to the fact that players can be penalized for forgetting to do something first thing in their turn, even though whether they do it first, second, or last affects no one else in the game."

I kept forgetting to take my points for Food, and everyone laughed at me!

"I hate this game, the font is awful."

The game quality chain goes: Font> Box Size> Graphic Design> Theme> Mechanics> Gameplay

"I was severely dissapointed with this. Ugly board, dry mechanics, and dice rolls on certain squares! Why would you go to them? I keep thinking I should give this one another try, but with dozens of games I'd rather play, it just isn't happening."

I like dice so much I use them with games even when I'm not supposed to!

"my personal tastes don't go to another rendition of renaisance art and city named game - sorry this route is used up and its giving lots of players this attitude"

It _is_ entirely possible for no boardgame to ever repeat its theme.

"Very light. Too light. There's really nothing here. You can't do anything that affects anyone else. It isn't really even a game."

I helped everyone win.

"Production: Well-produced game, with understandable symbology. Play: Lots of tough decisions about which provinces to bid for, and which actions to spend one's money on."

Why didn't I like this?

"Another resource harvest game. But here your game is at the mersey of the randomly drawn resource cards at game-setup"

I placed all of my villages on poor locations.

"My friends HATE this game because of the pastel camels! I like the game but no one will play it."

My friends made me do it.

"I think it's a necessary condition of the 'rich get richer' payout scheme"

I give up and will just help the current leader win.

"It's frustrating when you can't get the tickets that you need..."

I don't know what to do so I'm just going to fly home and take out another loan.
