There are a few great monthly lists in the geek about lots of thinks. I haven't seen one about the biggest disapointment of the month or the game that was suposed to be great but in the end happened to be just ok.

A mehhh game can be a bad game or a good game. Could also be an excelent game at first but turned into a mehhh game after a while.

You should add a single game for the "Mehhh game of the month". If you have a tie for mehhh games in a single month, roll a die!

I'll think of something witty to put here...

I bought this back in February and I've played it three times now. It's not a bad game - it's just not a good game - it's average or "meh." The theme is dull and nothing exciting happens.

Never liked westerns, never liked cowboys, the Indians look pretty dumb to...
Don't know why or how but I've always loved The Wild West Theme...
Not happy with that i decided to launch a quest to buy-trade every game that as the smallest feeling of Wild West ...
Wyatt Earp was only the most recent one...

The game is NOT BAD... is just MEHHHHH !

PS- Can someone please create a game about the wild west the is f#$&/ great and not just Mehhhh...

Thanks

Another co-op that could be as fun as pandemic?
Nope, got boring quickly. Not doing too much per turn. Creatures are very powerful, and usually win. The only time we had a chance is when one player accidentally mentioned that he had "no need to go to there" telling us that it was a wall and not a portal.
I'll stick with Pandemic.

The more I play it the more I find it losing its appeal. Everyone I play it with loves it (somewhat ironically, as I am the gamer and they are all merely my corrupted minions) but I am reaching the point where it is becoming an unsatisfactory experience cry

I'm now going to knock some points off the rating for this one.

Now I'm not saying that I hate this game, just the opposite. It's alright. I'll play it a few times, but then I'm ready for something...... else.
We have a guy in our gaming group that just LOVES this game. He'll call it Gun$ and Thug$ and every time does, I'll say "what game are you talking about?". Is there a guns and Thugs game?

Not a bad expansion for the game our group plays practically every week, but certainly not worth raving about, either. Although my opinion of how much of an edge the military strategies have might have softened, they do seem to have an edge. And the unexciting, infrequent, and largely irrelevant takeover mechanic--that's the real "Meh."

This was not a mehhh, was a really blarrrghhhh. From the theme to the artwork (this one is almost inconceivable bad) to the playability at the worst. Thankfully I've already trade it away.

This overtext is a blatant example of frivolous spending.

I spent 100 geek gold and all I got was this lousy overtext.

This was mine. It's an elegant, balanced mathematical model wrapped up in pretty packaging. I have to admire the guy for the elegance of his designs (which are mostly good games), but I just don't find them exciting.

I looked for the new game I'd played in August that rated the most average rating, and saw this one rated a 5... but I couldn't remember playing it. I had to look at which other games I played on the same day to remember it. Then I looked through the images and realised we'd played with a rethemed version. The game was completely unmemorable.

Edit: I just noticed that Firepigeon has the same game listed two entries above. I did this because I did not remember that I had played that game!
