I recently did a post on why people thought M&M was a great game.
I finally decided that i want to buy it, along with Innovation and Love Letter.

Before I actually commit, does M&M, which will be my "heavier" game, have great replayability? After 10 plays or so, do u feel still excited to play it and want to try new strategies?

Same question regarding Innovation: Great replayabilty?

Love Letter: This will be my filler in between heavier games. Does this also have great replayabilty?

Merchants & Maraudersis one of our "heavier games" as well and I can say it gets better and better every time. We've only played it 4 times now but it definitely gets easier the more you practice and the strategies start to unfold. With the way the A.I. and event cards work it keeps things from getting stale. Not to mention the players decide are they going to play it safe and be a Merchant or go all out and be a Pirate. So no two game are ever the same.

Innovation has great replayability, primarily at the two-player level.

Merchants and Marauders is fun but not in a deep strategy kind of way. For me, it's more like an awesome component thematic adventure. The game is highly draw/roll/luck dependent, but it's fun in what it does. I don't know if I'd want to play it dozens of times, but I'm glad I own it. Oh, and it plays very well with 2.

Innovation is a great card game with ever shifting powers and big swings in momentum. It's fantastic with 2 or 3.

Thanks for these replies. I think I'll just go ahead and commit, since everything seems pretty positive about these choices.

Is clever dumb fun. As for re-playability, I'm not certain games of this caliber really be labeled as such. The game is played over several rounds, and each round last a minute at most. It definitely take some deductive reasoning to do well, and there really isn't a whole lot of filler games that are like it. It's fun.
