I played Gravwell this weekend at a local game store and thought it was interesting but wanted to know how is holds up over multiple plays. Does it stay interesting because everyone is using different cards in different orders every game or does it get stale because of the limited options?

The drafting helps keeps things random. Not to mention, the strategy, or lack their of, of the other players. I think it depends on the person and their gaming interest. As well as the people you will be playing it with. I have played Gravwell several times and I still enjoy playing it. Others in my gaming group are not so enamored with it.

There are a lot of variants in the rulebook to keep things interesting.
There are also multiple different styles of drafting you can use.

Thanks,

I don't know about the variants. I have played 20+ times and still enjoy it just as much. The card order and drafting makes each game different.

I'd like a variant with a new set of cards that have real elements on them all.

Please let us know the name of some elements that start with the letters J, Q, and W.

Also, we have it on good authority from denizens of the 9th Dimension that Jakarium and Quavarem are excellent power sources for Tractor Beams, so your replacements are going to have to be pretty good.

Thanks,

Thanks for all the feedback! I was considering getting the game since it is affordable but wanted to make sure I would still be interested after the first few plays.

I own it andI really like this game, if you can remember the 3 cards the foes pick you can use some strategy in the game. it's like Texas hold Em to me. It's been played for years,no one complains about the repeatability.

I can play this game about 3 times a day.
I love how some people can play smart and go backwards to sabotage your plan!
I recommend this game!

You could have used mineral names instead of fabricated elements.

Like:
Jagoite
Quartz
Weilite

at least these actually exist.

Or just use Tungsten's old name Wolfram.

Those elements just haven't been discovered yet!

Not a Science Fiction fan I gather.
