Um... why would #3 be depressing? Although it would be cooler with Lo Pan :)

Hey, I had Bargain Hunter as a kid and liked it.

I have Chinatown now and don't understand why they say it's depressing.

Who is this person? shake

Are they referencing the movie Chinatown?

Next question: was the movie depressing? (i never saw it)

Yeah, Chinatown is depressing. That's why it's rank is 161. That's why over half it's rankings are 8 or greater.

So given that they're wrong about Chinatown, that must mean they're wrong about the rest of the list!

They forgot Ticket to Ride.

The depressing part? It's bamboozled hundreds of well-meaning board game geeks into thinking it's actually fun.*

Of course it's depressing. Every time I look at the box art that poor woman is going to get run down by the train.

Hey, man, if people want to spend their time randomly drawing cards until they have X of the same color, who am I to stop them?

I mean, I guess the box art on TtR Europe is pretty good. And I prefer their later stuff, but "Help!" is a decent album, so if I'm stuck playing I can think about that instead of wasting my time making any actual decisions. Still, in the meantime I think I'll be playing some games that involve strategy, theme, or both. You know. Fun games.

It is only funny if you know that I am banned from The Gathering for knocking Ticket to Ride.

I think you're my new board game hero. Want to go play Arkham Horror and Race for the Galaxy?

(And I see from your ratings you even agree that Gathering Storm is excellent but a total ripoff. I'm so happy. cry )

If you play with the kid friendly "no-face humping" rules for Fruttirelli, it makes the list easy.

Fruttirelli needs face humping or else it just isn't a game.
