Description December 1942: Having already surrounded the German 6th Army at Stalingrad, the Red Army launches its most ambitious offensive to date, Operation Little Saturn, designed to cut off and destroy all Axis armies in southern Russia. However, each container cannot be opened without knowing the secret code. Xi Gua Qi is played on a board that vaguely resembles a watermelon. It does not look like fun, but probably would be useful in a classroom. Each player starts with six pieces and moves them from intersection to intersection on the board.
Comments
I don't mind playing the Italian. Friend drags it out to play once and a while, but I've never wanted to own it. Now I've sold it - too many cardboard bits.
I bought this one by the sheer romanticism of the plot. Air Assault on Crete is just not that fun to play.

In Genesis you play the part of great reptiles, dangerous dinosaurs, powerful mammals or cunning man establishing yourself in the new ecosystems on the barren earth as you strive for world dominance.

UP. On! The game is fairly tense as you hope you get the die rolls you need and try to block other players, as well as trying to control which areas will get the bonus scoring. 50/50 luck/skill. There's also a lot of scope for different styles of play; you can fight to dominate a few big herds or play more opportunistically, though you have to make sure you're not fighting too many battles at once. . Better with more players.

In this fast-paced, frenetically fun game for preschoolers, players work together to deliver food to the café guests as fast as they can.
Comments
This sequel has more depth than Geistertreppe and seems to move faster since someone's piece must be moved if you can't move yours.

Haba kids game by Wolfgang Kramer.
The best gateway game I've played.
Great components and simple fun for little kids (and their parents).
Cute little memory game. An underrated game show, but it doesn't translate well to the home version.

An concept there could done more with. We own because one of my friends is one of the faces on the cards. Gameplay: ★★★☆☆ Replayability: ☆☆☆☆☆ Fun/Social: ★★:halfstar:☆☆ Components: ★★:halfstar:☆☆ Rules: ★★★:halfstar:☆ Can't imagine playing it again now. The interaction cards such as "choose someone to skip their next turn" is just annoying and amateurish these days. You can feel the connection nubs on the sides of the cards. Each turn is very quick, because there really isn't a lot of thought required. It really comes down to who churns through the best cards and hits better die rolls. I rushed to my bedroom and ripped the envelope open and quickly indulged my fascination with this wrestling game! I was intrigued with the idea that it took place in the year 2087 and the arena is carved out a moon from another planet!!!!The delightful white envelope contained: 24 wrestlers on high quality cardstock with a picture of the wrestler on the front and the stats on the back of the card, the rules (about 6 pages total for basic rules and I think about 4 additional for the 'advanced' rules), the three charts that simulate action that occurs in and out of the ring, and the two legendary (at least amongst the cotg community)dice.My brothers, friends, and even girlfriend played the original edition until we were ready for the next edition...as the first order, about a week came the order...INVASION was the expansion! That is cool for me, someday I’ll switch them out in a scenario and see what could of happened. We were blown away...Twenty years later I am still playing this wrestling game and have dragged all those cards (it has expanded to a huge 36 edition game as well as four federations that seperated from the original concept! But again, this looks like a very good product in the Panzer Grenadier Series and I very happy to have purchased it.

Description Traffic is a game about traveling in Switzerland. You may play either color piece on your turn. The winner is the mouse which collects the most cheese (earned by completing a circuit of the racetrack). Including stats for 198 different aircraft models. There are 4 variations (scenarios) to the game, most averaging around 90 minutes. Some cars have cheaper upkeep costs than others, but they will reduce the income received when they land on the profitable bank spaces on the board.

Fun for a short while. Takes a lot of thought and intelligence.
Classic fun.
Lots and lots of questions. Also 2 characters lost, easy to replace by a couple minis/pawns and it doesn't have the dices, but can be replaced by any dice. Thereafter I bought the (original English) game, which still is part of my collection!
