I got this game mainly because I liked the election theme (introduced with Die Macher) and wanted a more accessible election themed game. It seems to be more luck based than I would like, but I need a few more plays to see what strategies can be developed.

I see the reason Agricola is so well regarded, especially after grasping the idea that this is a game of maximizing efficiency. I love the aspect of increasing complexity by starting out a beginner player with the family game then progressing to the cards at the various levels. It also seems to be a different experience with each additional player. I anticipated the solo version, but so far, have been a little disappointed that it is more of a puzzle to see how you can preselect the cards and get the most points.

I have to rate this game higher than I might objectively would at this stage of my gaming hobby due to the special place it has in my memories of being my first serious and complex board game. I spent many Friday nights into Saturday mornings playing this game with my best friend from high school. I never seemed to be a good dice roller, so I never liked that aspect of battle, but I love mulling over the various strategies and seeing how they play out.

The revised edition did not live up to my expectations, but I still rate it high because of the series and the special place it holds in my memories. It is still a good game and makes me revisit strategies from the original edition. The Caucasus industrial complex and Sahara desert provide interesting challenges.

I got this primarily to complement Pacific 1940 so that I can play the global 1940 game. It has much better components and rules than the Pacific 1940 version.

I got this mainly to pair with Europe 1940 so that I could play Global 1940. The rules are horrible with so much errata. The components are also inferior compared with Europe 1940.

A nice light and quick politically themed game. I choose this one as my lightest weighted recommendation in the Campaign Manager 2008-1960: The Making of the President-Twilight Struggle "trilogy."

This was my first experience into "Euro gaming". I liked the tile laying mechanic, but there was not enough meat here for me. I have enjoyed the times I have played it so far, but I foresee it becoming one that I want to hold onto, but probably will not bring to the table that often.

If someone asks to play (which hasn't happened that often), I will probably play. But I just don't want to invest the time to read a book about strategies or watch/read about the great chess games. At this point, I want to move on.

This is one of the classic mainstream games that are usually loved by those not yet introduced to Euro gaming and hated by those who are. I definitely rank it lower than I would have several years ago, but I still give it its due for its popularity in mainstream board gaming.

Does not scale well across number of players. Two player should only be for learning the game. So far, I have only had opportunities to play with two players, which we play as four logical players (each physical player plays two logical players) -- much more fun that way.

This is definitely one of my current favorites. I love the way the game ramps up. I also like to look at the game as building a machine and seeing how well it produces victory points for you. I am still refining my strategies, but I have yet to tire of playing this game.

I really enjoy playing this game, but it has to be with the right crowd. I do not like it when it turns into a "let's make the most inventive answers we can and try to convince you it's acceptable." The timer is also very annoying.

I received this as a gift when it initially came out and was the craze. I enjoyed the first couple of plays and interacting with the DVD, but I quickly got tired of it. The interactive questions had less to do with movie trivia and more to do with observation, which is not what I was hoping for.
