Have you found this rare beast?

Does the game bring perfection in the form of its mechanics (Worker placement,Route/Network Building,Tile Placement,Dice Rolling ,Variable Player Powers etc?

Or if the game makes you feel good and you play it with good people it's perfect?

what does perfect mean to you?

I think the Perfect Game, can be had with most games that you simply enjoy.

E.g when we played Elder Sign for the first time, we had one roll left to kill the great one, and my wife did we all jumped for joy and screamed and addicted to that feeling, we have played this game heaps of times since never getting the same outcome or feeling?

Does that make this a perfect game?

No, I beleive that the perfect game does not have much to do with the game (as long as its one you all enjoy) but the people you are with, but also, very dependant on how the game has played out.

Saying that with that level of stress (hoping to do it) Is this the perfect game? Its a good question and not one that can be answererd lightly and simply.........

.........Bravo sir

At last I'd found it. The perfect game. Cardboard nirvana on my shelf. I'd only dreamed that a game like this could exist, and now, here it was. An intuitive ruleset, a gripping theme, and gameplay to make the angels weep. This was a game I knew I'd cherish till my days were done.

One week later, an even more perfect game was announced, and I was all over that instead.

It's a game that is the best approximation of why I got into boardgaming in the first place. Meaning - with the right kind of people it produces the kind of gaming experience I love to drown myself in.

It's telling that the game predates the era of mechanics obsession.
Mechanics smechanics.

A bit weird phrasing. I translated it as "a good as boardgame experiences get".

Battle Line is close to perfection for me.

If it must have a board then it's probably Kingsburg.
