Unplayed.
OK for children/family fun, can broken if played with gamers. If you like Dip, OK for a change of pace, but some players may not have much chance.
A blind bidding game that is not too deep and not with many options. This is a fun varient, but it is not the classic.
Really not a game but an idea published before testing. After playing this a few times, I only play the original (no variants).

Description WELLINGTON'S WAR presents the entire Peninsular Campaign using wooden blocks on one 32 inch by 48 inch map. The referee makes sure that each horse starts from the right spot. The game consists of a board and ten counters. The player then tries to answer a question determined by both the colour of the space he or she lands on, and the actual number rolled on the die. User; Perceive the plans of the opposing team and cancel them. Control of areas is key to victory and the French player in particular will contend with conflicting needs of garrisoning key areas while maintaining a sufficiently strong field force.
Comments
Rather boring Pachisi variant played with cards. Great bits, but boring for adults. The questions DO require a knowledge of (very) British trivia!
Wunderschรถne 'Dog'-'Menschร„rgereDichNicht'-Variante, aber noch viel schรถner durch die vier Sonderkarten und das schรถne Material.
Of course a 10 or is this not allowed? There is plenty of luck and a few decisions, great wooden horses and components, and it is fun for adults to play with young ones.

I have Adel Verpflichtet. I played with 6 players my first time out, and found the experience largely underwhelming. A game for lovers of puzzles. Also, the way you win is kind of random - you get treasure cards that are worth 0 to 5 points if you're on the winning team. At the beginning, it is difficult to figure out what should one do or ask. This is probably my highest rated game-I'd-rather-play-something-else-instead-of. It probably took 20 minutes, but it felt like an eternity. It's like the sprint event of the werewolf family. Amazingly, it has never felt repetative, when repetative bouncing from a to b is litterally all you ever do.
Acquired July 2009. Recommended as a "gateway game".

Description A deduction and logic game. As colonists develop the local infrastructure, many islands will experience an economic boom. Before that happens, dominate the exports of an island by investing there more heavily than others...but the value of those exports depends on the population demanding the products, and how well funded they are.
Comments
I have the game and read through the rules. The tension comes mostly from devastating "take that" event cards as well as constantly decreasing resources. Seems like it's going to be easy at first, next thing you know your clan is dying off.
I wouldn't play thi sone too often, but once in a while it's fun, if only for the cries of cannabalism heard throughout the room...

A very good adventure game. "Borrowed" from my parents home... But still, it's nice and easy, with a smooth gameplay. I highly recommend this game. [imageid=411266 original]

Description This game is based on the ancient Chinese game of Choi Dai Di (Known as 'Big Two' in English, similar to Pusoy Dos in the Philippines). "As the Star League was dying on the eve of the Succession Wars, the House Lords agreed on one final action. At the suggestion of General Kerensky they appointed Jerome Blake as Minister of Communications and charged him with repairing the damaged HPG network. Winner of "Archimedes 2004" special mention for its high social value. The more innovatory a set of rules is, the more unfamiliar it is going to be to the players.
Comments
No rating yet. Steffi as a board game - can it get any better? Great bits. To be fair this is a played once game.
Free Print & Play. Quite a good simulation of tennis. A wonderful look and feel. Once you have the rank of cards memorized as well as rank of the various hands the gameplay moves along quickly and it's easy to get a game in about 30 minutes or so.
A dexterity game of remarkable invention.

The Battalion Deck consists of thirty three types of military units (Infantry, Cavalry, and Artillery). Players take turns to roll a die, and move along on the paths in the garden. From Wikimanqala: Version 1: Isolo (according to Kalumbete also called isumbi) is the name given to three related mancala games played by the Sukuma, in Tanzania.
Comments
This is not a game. You have to play the really hard ones for a challenge. I may go back to this one later on, just to see if my pov has changed for the better. Not something I would pull out on a regular basis, but it has great potential for road trips.
We don't play it as a game,but as car ride filler. It's good for roadtrips. Most importantly, my fiance likes it.

If you play by the rules in the version we have, I'd rate it a 6. (36 "B 17" counters... My rating reflects that I play Over the Reich using the 2nd edition rules found in Whistling Death.
The more I've played this, the more I like it. Every game seems to have some surprising moves and reversals, but not so many that the outcome seems random. It's also nigh impossible to turn the game if you lose the first round -- the latter two rounds are nothing more than a chance for the winning player to turn a slight lead into an all-out whomping.
Great theme with nice game play. There are quite a few interesting decision points and trade-offs in this delightful card game. Great interplay between the players as you have to be concerned with offense (Accusing), defense (Bluffing), and where every witch is in the game. With the rule it is a clever fluid game which rewards both attacking and defensive play.
See my notes on Whistling Death. Would like to play more of this.

Description Throughout the game the Rhino rushes about the board either pushing the poor Looney birds back along the track or knocking them over. This is a simple spin-and-move game. Grab lots of Booty keepers, maybe some Ships, and expect a few new Surprise cards along the way.
Comments
Looks beautiful, but it doesn't work.
Roll and move, repeat until dead.
Played once. Rummy with Shakespeare very limiting trivia on specific plays. It's fun for younger ones. When the timer goes off, if you've rolled a six, you win.

Comments
Pretty to look at but rules are somewhat confusing on a couple of issues, plays fairly quick at 45 minutes to 1 hr.
Hoping for economic game, only to find an abstract game. Certainly better than many games out there with a price tag on them. In terms of mechanics, it doesn't compare to anything I've ever played before.
