A big, kludgy math problem in which some or all of the players at the table are sure to make mistakes. The gameplay is middling and the theme is nonsensical (modular rooms up for auction?). I don't get the charm.

Better than average filler, but filler nonetheless. Citadels is a fun activity, but there never seems to be much correlation between strategy and success.

After 3-4 plays, I'm just not very impressed. The game always seems to be imbalanced one way or the other, with the losing side having to trudge on for an hour or more after it's obvious who's going to win. The theme is a generic FRP kind of thing, with no real backstory or narrative to it. The gameplay is linear, with the one or two best choices usually fairly obvious to all.

Completely replaced, for my money, by Arkham Horror, which is better in every way (minus the minis, of course).

Modestly interesting at first, but we never use this one anymore.

Really nice bits can't change the fact that this is basically just a roll-and-move game at its heart.

Flavorless, lucky, chaotic

First play was very, very long and mostly dry. There were some exciting moments, but I don't see this hitting the table very often.

Essentially Galaxy Trucker without the fun part.

Very luck-driven, most interesting actions are the weakest actions

Bland Euro engine-builder, seems like it should be a whole lot more fun than it is. The original space theme was probably a better match for the mechanic, too.

Pretty good for what it is: a large-group game with hidden allegiances and unique powers. There does seem to be a lot of luck (werewolf + machine gun = bad news for the hunters), and a couple of the characters kind of suck, but it's better than Bang! by a mile.

Really nice components and fast, simple gameplay. But the game is extremely luck-dependent, with victory or defeat often determined by the command point draws of the Space Marine player. Also, the pieces are too big for their squares most of the time, resulting in figures catching on each other and knocking each other down, which kind of ruins the effect.

Another game where I felt like I must have missed something. It's about as heavy as Ticket to Ride, but lacks the excitement of that series. Not bad, but nothing to write home about.

Euro-Munchkin. No meaningful decisions to make whatsoever--your best "strategy" is pure randomness. This might be OK with 4 players, but with 6 it's mindless chaos.
