I assume players who max it out would be less inclined to want to play this but I dont own this so I wouldnt know.

Also how many plays did it take you to get 30?

Do you get 30 consistently or ateast consistently close?

I've gotten several Max scores ( 35 or so ). I still play this game ( 7 times this friday ). The more I play with the same players, the more I consider it a "loss" if I get less than 28. We talk about the challenges the deck gave us and the end of each game, and how to solve those problem.

This is one of the games I geek out about... so I may be an exception.

Well, my group still plays this about once a week and we have over 700 plays. If you don't play with advanced clues (finesse, reverse, bluff, etc) I can see how it might get old.

If my records are close, about 65 games before a perfect 25. We might have had one earlier that I failed to record. This was followed closely by a six suit 30. We also didn't know about advanced clues during this time. I now believe that the six suit game is easier than the five suit game.

It took us about another 60 games to get a perfect multi-color 30 (where the rainbow suit assumes all colors).

I think we get a 30 every 7-8 games or so. We also still totally bomb out from time to time because either the cards just conspire against us, someone makes a critical cluing error, or both.

I still find very interesting situations where you have to be creative about your clues. We wouldn't keep coming back for more if it wasn't challenging.

Right here on boardgamegeek.

There are also videos showing them in practice: https://boardgamegeek.com/video/84411/hanabi/game-curmudgeon...

If you have played before and already know the rules, you can skip to the actual game at 15:06. You might find it helpful to read about the logic of finesse before viewing so that you can follow along with his commentary.

It stayed interesting for my regular play group, but we did eventually take out a 1-4 of multicolor from the deck and we discussed the idea of putting those back in and removing 1-4 each in a different color.

At this point I have more than 700 plays logged, but I still want to play more.

We are still playing it 3-4 times per week, so it hasn't bored us yet. We get perfect games from time to time, but personally I don't usually care about our score. I find that the "puzzle" is always challenging me, so it makes me want to continue playing.

If you get to a point where you are scoring 30 too often (25 with the standard 5 colors), then you can make it more difficult with the variations included in the rules. We actually play a combination of those variants so we only have 1 of each rainbow card, and they are clued as every color (ie you can't clue them as their own unique rainbow color). This has proven to be challenging enough for us.
