I'm writing this list as an tribute to all those games (and gamers) who repeatedly kick my ass. It may be lousy luck. It's probably poor planning. It could also be the misfortune I have of always being the game purchaser / rules explainer / having to monitor everyone's moves and spend the whole game elbow deep in a rule book.

Whatever the reason excuse, these are the games at which I am destined to always lose.

Please, add your own and help me feel a little better

*I'm not sure if a list like this has been made already - apologies in advance if I'm flogging a dead horse*

My inspiration for this list. Out of the three games I've played, I have come dead last every single frickin' time. I know it's all about majorities and controlling power supply, but those SUBS! They just look so NEAT! My obsession with living at the bottom of the sea with a navy of shiny submarines has meant that everyone else has a great time bombing the blue buggery out of me.

Just because I've crowned myself the Ad Astra champion of 'teh worrld' does not mean I'm good at any other space-faring games. Exhibit A - Twilight Imperium. Love this game to death and I guess it is my undying insistence that we play it at every opportunity that is to blame for me spending more time answering rules queries than thinking of my own strategy. I did, however, learn not to take advice from my pug - she sucks at games too.

Exhibit B. I like to be the good guys. The idea of methodically clearing the galaxy of an alien menace is appealing. The cold, hard reality is the intergalactic space navy coping a merciless pummeling while I'm saving energy points for the galactic equivalent of a rainy day.

Mate will you GET OUT OF IT with your respawning Toguo fighters!

I've complained about this elsewhere, but it's most appropriate here. I totally have The Losing Edge on Settlers. I don't even think it's my fault, but every time I've played (3×) I've lost by a greater margin than anyone else at the table had ever seen. First of all, I'm somehow always the last to get to place my first town, so that the really juicy spots are gone. Although I scratch out a 6 or an 8 on at least one, it is axiomatic that either (1) nobody ever rolls my best number or (2) the robber spends the entirety of the game on my best hex, and in the highly unlikely event I roll a 7 and move him off, the next player will invariably also roll 7 and restore him to his original spot. Settlers may very well be the most elegantly crafted, most enjoyable game in existence but because of crap like this I will never know.

This one is my wolfsbane. I not only suck at it, I epically suck at it. I can hardly count the number of Le Havre games where I thought for sure that I was winning only to find out when the scores get added up that I not only lost, I got hammered!

It's not my poor strategy that bugs me; it's my poor math. I'm usually pretty good at quickly doing simple math problems (thanks to years of doing stats in Strat-O-Matic sports games). And in Le Havre, it's not hard to quickly get an idea of who's winning; it's just building points plus cash-on-hand, all of which are perfectly visible to everyone. Yet I lose track nearly every time, my mental math off by a country mile...

How basic, right?

How then is it that I always get shafted by the player next to me the very move before I am set to play my massive route that will score me the game-winner?

How is it possible that this happens nearly every game?

How can any one person be that unlucky?

Gateway game, indeed—to a coronary!

My wife would easily acknowledge I am the better speller and outside of medical terminology have the wider vocabulary... but she is more patient at puzzle games... especially letter puzzle games. This means that we are pretty evenly matched for most word games... but not this one! To date my record against my wife is 1 win to 9 losses... and only my one win has been close. Maybe I need to learn more medical terminology... laugh

I have probably played this game more than any other game in my collection. But if you see me sitting at the Carcassonne table, rest assured I will be in the losing back end of players, GUARANTEED!

Doesn't matter if I go heavy on cities, or go for the agrarian points at the end. My so-called-friends will find a way to steal anything I have that's good and leave me with the low-scoring bilge at the bottom of the barrel.

Is there anything more crushing than having someone put a Cathedral tile down when you only have one tile space left to complete your awesome huge city?

Are these regulation tiles, or what?

Why must my dreams be eternally crushed?

In fact, I think I've won ONE game -- in all the other ones, I came in dead last. I still don't know what I'm doing wrong, but I'm very consistently doing it.

My losing is quite inclusive and applies to most games, particularly any that I pay for.

San Juan is a special case though, even with my propensity to fail. I bought it primarily as a 2-player game with which to challenge the lady wife. Researched it, shopped for it, read the rules, taught the rules, lost 11 times straight.

And not closely either. Thats 1 in 2048 as a probability. She got rather tired of winning and suggested we play something with more variety and replay value.

Presumably thats how it feels when you don't get all 6-point buildings in your starting hand, then nothing but indigo works and those stupid chuffing cranes for the next 20 minutes.

Oh how I love this game, and oh how ashamed I am that of the three or four games we've played of it so far, I haven't written my name on the board even ONCE. Oh, I've been allowed to name 1-point cities ("Amsterdamnit", "Ciudad de Scriv", "Mattscow")--the paltry reward for "hanging on", but I have yet to be named a victor.

This game really does make being a loser shameful.

When we first started playing this game, I loved it. Whenever we play, it's the 3 of us - me and the same two friends every time. There was no clear winner among us; we split the wins about evenly.

Then one day, we realized we could play online. I haven't won a single game since. Not one game. We have played many, many, many, MANY games since then. I don't know what the losing edge is, but man did I find it. It's like someone flipped a switch and said "okay, you've had your fun. No more winning for you."

It'd be one thing if I was playing against accomplished people on the internet. But I'm not. I'm playing the same 2 guys I was beating a third of the time the day before we started playing online. "Maybe it's just because we're not face to face... maybe you're just better at reading people in person or something" they said. So we played a few games in person again. Nope. Still not happening.

I don't know what happened, but the streak has now gone on long enough that I have lost all enjoyment I used to find in the game (and man, I'm used to losing. Losing doesn't usually detract from my appreciation of a game - case in point: dice games). Playing is just another lesson in futility now. I think the difference between this and most other games I've played that I suck at is that in all those other games, I always feel like I have a chance to win. That is gone for me for this game. My spirit is broken.

Loved this when I first played this..buuuuuuuuut...Somehow I always get stuck next to the birds and the last two turns they spend their AP Speciatn' and Migratn' and take the first place position from me on my tiles. I actually am in first place sometimes when this happens...then the final scoring comes around and I am in a race to the bottom by myself or with the new player at the table...sheesh, and I like this hobby why?yuk

I had to add this. It immediately jumped to mind because it is one of my favorite games to play despite the fact that I have not been able to even come close to winning in 4-5 games I have played.

I have at this point resigned myself to lose badly every time.

But I will play in a heart beat

Never, never, never. I have never won this game. I have played at least 15 times and I never win. I guess I am easy to read because I always lose one or two more turns than other people or I play to conservatively and can never get enough points.

If I could talk people into their choices this game would be much easier for me.

I don't know what it is, but every game I rocket up to 4 colonies, then promptly roll over and lose. It's become so common that if you get way ahead early and just can't get over the hump, it's called "pulling a Bryan" in our circle.

Still, this game is too much fun - win or lose.
