Pretty good game. The wild cards in the center add another dimension to the game as it's all too easy to forget about their presence right up to the point that your opponent makes you pay for that omission.
I just made my own with the old kites and valentines trick. It works though, and it's fun to play.
Very average, which is actually an expression I use to mean worse than average. The lemming pawns are cute. No need to play. A simple game to fill a few minutes quite pleasantly.

Needs more play. The game itself is 'okay', showing it's age a bit now and the components don't help - you can see what flood tiles are coming up by looking at the edges (we put them in a bag).

Description The game is named after the Swedish version of the Eurovision song contest. The bombs have various effects hidden on their base. Historically the campaign lasted for 105 days, but will you as the Finnish side be able to last that long, or maybe longer? The game can last up to 16 turns (Dec. Gettysburg: Badges of Courage features a Brigade level order of battle with historical units and leaders. How much anguish can one people endure under such cruelty? Second, if you ended up or started on a bomb, test (with a special die) to see if it blows up.

Description The Cards with letters on them are dealt on the table. When they check on her later, she's found in a pool of blood. At the end of each turn an event card takes effect, giving points to officeholders, allowing free building, or causing some other occurrence. And be sure to work efficiently - your boss, Eugene H.

Mint condition, unopened box. Then this is the game for you. There is nothing, NOTHING on the box that would indicate that you are buying 52 cards in 4 suits with ranks from ace to king. Continue, working your wa...y up the production tree. The rest is better ignored. The game was fairly tight to the end (players had 0, 2, and 4 cubes remaining), but I can't help but think that the game would work better with a larger deck of cards (IE, 2 decks), and perhaps a smaller number of cubes to attain victory.

No tuckboxes needed. Interesting mechanism. There's not much of a game here, but it's an interesting relic of the time.
Good family game, the instructions are almost useless though. To do well in it, you need to be aware of other players' position, money, and cards left.

Description Latador is a game designed by Magnús Scheving, based on his play Latibær (which later became a cartoon show called Lazytown.) In Latador the player rolls a die and goes along the track and he has to follow the instructions on each step he lands on, healthy lifestyle and dexterity helps you win the game. As with several of his more recent games, this game takes place on a much smaller map than the traditional games in the series, so small in fact, that it is limited to only 2 players.
Comments
This game is flawed and desperately needs house-rule fixes. A bit luck-drawn but fun to play.
An electronic calculator replaces dice, players move their own pawn zero to three board spaces each turn based on the display. So thats fun. You need a lot of luck. Not at all on the same level as wallenstein.
Too much card luck here for me.
This reminds me of a cross between Eisenbach Gap and Command & Colors - fast, furious, fun. It was only a couple bucks to get the page laminated.

Nice bits.
This is one of the awesomely epic 18XX. It also has a neat plastic horse, but it's still not very interesting. Some just don't make sense for how to resolve hits. The mechanics are fun and I love the scoring system - basically you can do well even if you aren't in a position to go after your first goal of matching your pawns to the spectrum. . A perfect example of a game in the sixes that I still enjoy playing. 2007/03/06 It seems a tab simple for what it is, but it's light enough to play whenever she asks to. There's too much decision path to be made, and lots of mistakes can be corrected if you do the right thing. At times it can be a bit tit-for-tat, and it's probably decided when a player finally fails to draw a card that blocks the upcoming game-winning move from the opponent (those that alter the spectrum, and those that allow you to swap a pawn with an opponent). 6-8 hours is clearly the correct time. It's seductive, and does make friends from many ages and abilities very easily. The designer reminds people to play the, what became, "swap end-pawns" cards how he originally intended it instead: move one pawn to the other side and nudge all others one step across.
I'm usually not a fan of abstract games, but this one really grabbed me.

Espace jeux fev. Several small impact extensions add spice without hurting the game. Plus the polar bear. The game takes up a lot of room to play: at least 2 normal game tables - be warned.
A very small expansion that really don't do anything. Plus, the die roll doesn't serve any good purpose here, other than to randomly give or take a point or two along the way.
It is OK. Not necessary, but not something which hurts the game.

Description Part of the Munchkin series. Each faction has its own deck of cards, buildings, upgrades, attacks, special powers, and a screen behind which a player will play cards. Your opponents do not know what you are building. It may sound easy, but the greedy miners have several tricks up their sleeves in order to gain an advantage—including sneaking through secret passages, fighting for gold, and scaring away other miners with bats.
Comments
A very solid game. If you get a chance try it. Definitely a kids game, but this is a truly amazing game for children (probably boys) of a certain age.
A fun mini-brainburner. Pretty much roll and move and a bit of take that which aren`t my things at all but the bits are awesome!
