Description FACTORY FUN EXPANSION 1 you can add complete to the Factory Fun game. As the name suggests, playing Aces changes the trump suit.
Comments
My rating is currently for Ransom Trump.
Included in Z-Man Version of Factory Fun. The components, though, are exceptional. The game also includes the formula necessary to rate the players, so updating the stats is easy to do. Drawbacks include a relatively limited set of results due to the use of two six-sided dice; the longer play time due to the need to track the path of hit balls, runners, and thrown balls; and general player ratings (e.g.-same rating for batters with 49-point variance in batting average, errors that largely occur regardless of a player's fielding ability, etc.). Minor correction, though. At the same time, what separates the most popular games, like APBA and SOM, from games like Sherco, is that the latter requires several rolls to resolve each play.

Description Game based on J.R.R. This self-contained PDF print-and play game allows you to simulate the air to air battles of World War II from the European Air War to the Pacific campaigns.
Comments
Harder to tell which one has 2 and which has 12 than you'd think. A very good filler. It's quite nerve-racking flying a nazgul around the board, waiting to see if it spots one of your party and lands on them!

Description DEFEND YOUR CAPITAL is an Investment and Money Management Game produced by designer Joseph Pascal in 1976. Looks like a get rid of your cards first Uno style by topping the previous card.

Played by lo.
Setup is kind of a pain. The role selection model is simple and functional, reducing downtime and overall playing time. This ensures that each game has a different feel and that there are more than one way to win. The best game I own. Not really!! However, it appears that it will always remain a classic with me.
I can see why this game is so highly rated and can admire it as a game, but I'd only want to play it a couple of times a year. Yet to punch & play. Lots of steady decision making. The mechanics work all too well - you really feel poor and desperate at the start of the game, by the middle you are frantically trying to decide what everyone will do and whose set up is the most threatening and then at the end there is a tremendous sense of time running away from you. To view the card). Played this week and still love it. Rio Grande version.
I can only stand so many caveats and exceptions in a city building game. I like the mechanics very much, I am especially impressed at the different paths the game can take with the same players, and the little randomness there is. One of the most popular games in my group, and probably still the best game I've ever played. UPDATE: the game is still neat, but feels kinda "samey" from play to play. I no longer attempt to get this one to the table, but will definitely play if others request it. BUT.

Description This board game originated in India some time before the 18th century. There were many versions, each based on different belief systems. Though a number of the cards in portal were direct counterparts to cards in the regular-run of Magic: the Gathering, gone were named abilities like Trample, Banding, -walk (though Three Kingdoms did add the ability "Horsemanship", which is almost but not quite flying). Additionally, the game cut back on cards that could be played on another player's turn (i.e.

This thing sucked me into Magic. That said, it's here, I've played it, and here's what I think: The Portal sets are a good introduction to Magic for younger players, or for people who have no familiarity with the system at all. Will rate once we get it out from under the tree and onto our battle-table!
Good intro to M:TG.
Gave to a non-gaming friend who loves comics and has a 6 year old who does too. For his birthday.
Dumbed down MTG. The Marvel characters can be a very fun addition to Heroscape proper, so it is worth picking up a set dirt cheap if you stumble across it.

Hex-and-Counter
Description Latest Addition of the Bohnanza-series for 2-6 players. Tempus plays on a modular board with an array of landscapes on each land tile to ensure a different game every session. A 6 by 6 frame is assembled, and each player takes turns placing two tiles at a time to build the maze, leaving two empty spots. The first player to "knock out" (defeat) six opposing Pokémon wins the game.
Comments
Taking a 1/2-hex at a time just shows this game might have been better w/ new maps at different scale. Gives a 'what if' element to the 1812 scenario, as France's ally, the Ottomans may have been able to intervene in Russia.

Lunch money clone.
This is very similar to other games of its type, but needing couples - this would annoy if it was ours, but as a game to play at family gatherings it was a lot of fun.
Entirely random. También se diferencia de otros Risk en que éste es un juego por equipos 2vs2.

Is this the same as "President" and "The Great Dalmuti" and so on? My husband grew up playing it and calling it "idiot."

Juego de cartas tradicional.
If you absolutely must have a game that has Rip Taylor on the box art then by all means add this to your collection.

Description One of Gerhard Kodys' better games, the game concerns moving in the right social circles and this gaining the best seats at a restaurant. Simplistic WWII era Pacific sea battle simulation." In fact 'conga' lines of raisins can be seen all over the city. The choice of the shape of the tree is not a casual one. Cards are Units, Attack, Defense, or Special. The Russian Guard, Austerlitz, 1805
Comments
As original. This is a concept that could be widely applied in games today.
Pretty much identical to the original Power Grid, just containing one additional plan. Deserves a 10 as well.
Great fun! Obviously this game hasn't been touched since then but it does have centimental value.
Oh come on, I know I'm not the only person who had this! The components are fairly subpar and the question cards are very poorly laid out.
