Now that a lot of us have said 3 nice things about the games we hate.
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/1160459#1160459
Lets even the score. Pick a game you love and list 3 negatives or things you wish a game had.


World of WarCraft Boardgame.

1. Too many damn pieces.
2. Way to damn long.
3. Rules hard to understand at times.

Lost Valley

1. It wasn't released until 2004, so it kinda feels like the entire 20th century went to waste.

2. It doesn't come in liquid form so that you can pump this baby strait into your veins.

3. It can't have babies.

This is actually a positive. Infant board games can be quite colicky.

In the wonderful game, Bonaparte at Marengo, this is how to get nasty Frenchies out of a village.

Hooo-boy, this is tough.

Bonaparte at Marengo:

1) My primary face-to-face opponent has burned out on BaM and won't play any more.
2) Sometimes is too tense to play via email. While it's easy for me focus on a tense game like BaM for a face-to-face session, it's harder for me to do the same in PBEM games, where I may have to make a bunch of small moves a day over several days. Having to switch focus repeatedly from tasks at hand to the game and back can be trying.
3) Map creases are a bit large.

Age of Steam:

1. Distinct possibility to be trashed on your first turn.
2. Sucks to break up the tracks into nice piles each game.
3. The dice can be your enemy sometimes in the resource allocation phase.


I still love it! meeple

A Game of Thrones:

1. Distinctly unbalanced; whoever gets Lannister is usually toast

2. Subject to analysis paralysis - everybody issues orders simultaneously, but some people take forever

3. A bad Westeros deck shuffle can really skew the game unpleasantly

And it's still pretty much my favorite game in spite of these issues.

Blue Moon

1) Smoking it yields no euphoric or hallucinogenic effects.
2) It doesn't do my taxes, regardless of any amount of cajoling.
3) It doesn't have enough expansions.

Scarab Lords:

1.) You get six blank polyhedral dice (four-sided) that are suppsed to represent pyrimids, but they are lacking an entire side
2.) You get to "play" a game that ends before it's really begun, and in a way that seems far to random and depends on the luck of the draw
3.) You get a FFG Silver Line insert that can collect lots of cardboard dust from the poorly punched scarab tokens

ASL

1. After playing it, no other games appeal to me.
2. All the components, rule books, articles, and counter storage trays fill too large a space in my closet.
3. There's no one to play it with you, and I can't get virtual ASL to work worth a damn on my computer.

The Republic of Rome:

1. Mortality chits are far to random, mind so is almost everything in this game
2. most of my game group wants to play dune instead.
3. No matter how hard I try the "seduction" card is much better used in the game than in real life. Every time I use it on a person and offer them small paper counters to join my attempt to control all of the roman empire I get funny looks.

Samurai Swords
1- The rulebook could be laid out much better
2- The "castle" bases for the player screens and the sword holders could have been plastic instead of styrofoam.
3- Box takes up a little too much shelf space.

Sleuth:

1) I can never find opponents.
2) I haven't felt inspired recently to make any more solitaire puzzles.
3) If someone screws up with not showing a card, it kills the game.

Hunting Party

1. Painful to see the game drag out to a full 16 turns and still have nobody win
2. Bash the leader? Don't mind if I do
3. Sometimes a good character runs unchecked for too long. Bash the leader? You wish, mortal devil

Still good
