Nope, you are the only person in the world that dislikes the game. Deepest regrets to tell you this

How it looks like I don't get the appeal of this... I like my board games with monsters... Farming space kinda... Boring...

*Looks again with joy at recently arrived, shiny copy of TM and it's expansion maps*

Well, I'm not literally sitting in the box, so I guess I can identify with you in that respect.

Thanks for the reminder to keep an eye out for Venus: Next

To each their own, we all have games we prefer or not that others would disagree with. In this case I agree with you, this game seems to be lacking something. I can't explain what it is but it feels as if there is only half a game there.

Don't worry, games come and go. Although I do like TM a lot, i know why i like it. People aren't gonna be playing this one forever.

It will fade quickly. It only got hot because of the space theme and having a drafting mechanic. It offers nothing special.

It's okay enough, but it's a bitch to play. I think it'd be better as a video game.

Most of my gaming group here just love TM to death.
Its a good game and I have enjoyed it whenever I've played it, but I won't ask for it and not as enamoured by it like a lot of folks and in my opinion its slightly over priced in terms of its product quality, with really lazy artwork and graphic design.

It's a great idea, but seems over-long for what it is, and the implementation is horrific. Resources are kept track of with cubes galore, and if you don't invest in a polyurethane overlay for your playmat, one careless elbow and BOOM! your corporate assets are all over the place.

Actually, that could have been a design feature to simulate the real-world economy. whistle

Here are a bunch of people who also don't like the game (see also: comments below).

I really do like the game, although I do have some complaints.

I'm not a fan. For the reason: Vital Lacerda is making a Mars game. The Emperor himself has actually been On Mars this year and knocked up a few domes and grew some crops for his research.

Eagle Gryphon will be doing the Kickstarter with components made from Martian rock Vital is bringing back.

I would probably not get into it if I care to try it but I don't even care to try it. Same for Scythe.

Same here, except I have played it twice.
Typically this is exactly my type of game, but I don't understand the hype at all as I don't see anything new or groundbreaking in Terraforming Mars.

I don't particularly care for the game but I'm glad people like it. My question is for those that like it...have you ever tried Forged In Steel?

But I think people really like drafting. A lot

Space theme + length = I'll never play it. However, I don't care at all that other people like it.

I can’t stand it. Draft from 8 to 20 cards in a zillion card deck, make obvious choices on the first card then basically get stuck with whatever you’re handed. I guess it’s amazing they made a game that’s both stupidly high randomness yet totally on rails.

I’ve accurately picked the winner in every TM game before the third year, but unfortunately the game drags on for an hour or two longer than that.

I disagree. It's not going to fade quickly. There's no game released recently that compares to it. I've played it over 80 times and almost everyone I know loves it. Both of those are unheard of around here.

And a game doesn't make the top five games on BGG if it offers nothing special.
