Bought into this thinking it would be a quick two player godzilla-esque smash-fest.
Its not!

A)The boosters make me want to cry cry they took all the worst bits of random boosters and mashed them together, (a crate of boosters between six and we still didn't have enough of 2 of the initial 6 factions to play) plus you need buildings as well as monsters (which of course are in a separate booster).

B) Its really long.

C) Its not so much a smash-fest as a run away until the other monster gives up/has heart attack and keels over.

52. Board Game: Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game [Average Rating:7.06 Overall Rank:553]

I bought this based on alot of buzz. My girlfriend and I were both looking to get in to deep a card game without the huge expense of mtg and call of cthulhu sounded at first like a good choice.

After buying the core set and a couple of expansions totaling over $80 I actually played the game. My girlfriend and I played 10 times trying to find a way that this game could possibly be played that would make it not suck. That was literally our objective.

Game balance is so broken that the core game is not even a game.

After doing some research trying to figure out if anyone else had managed to make the game not suck, I learned that in order to make a good deck for a single person you actually need to buy three sets of the core game, which isnt cheap since they package it with a superfluous board and big plastic superfluous cthulhu markers.

The game has terribly implemented mechanics throughout every aspect of play. Engaging in stories, resolving them, the way cards interact - all of it plays like a concept that resulted in abject failure at implementation time. You know the outcome of the stories before anyone commits, thus there is seldom any real conflict and the "game" never gets played. Even the resourcing system doesnt force choices as interesting as other games using the same mechanic.

Anyway, looking to trade some CoC cards if anyone feels differently about this... I just dont see a game here. certainly not a fun one.

This game has received so much praise here on the Geek.
Also I thought: A game where the theme basically is Ragnarök and you get to be Norse gods bashing the evil guys from the Edda? You get the famous weapons? Many options per turn? Perfectly for solo play?

Bought it with the promo from an online store.

Well, it turned out that there are not that much options and it feels repetitive way too quickly. Sold it after two plays.

Thank god I did't buy extra card sleeves for this one as I had enough leftovers from Through the Ages.

This, for me, completely falls into the 'Buyer's Remorse' category:

My s/o is my main gaming partner, and had been pushing for Tikal to join our collection for a while (and I was looking for something to ease off the amount of Ghost Stories we had been playing). She studied South American history and temple archaeology at University, so I thought "Hey, it's a game with a mechanic we don't have a lot of in our collection, and she'll love the theme" and thus picked up a copy.
I pulled out the rules--straight forward enough, taught her the game (as is my job ) and we were off...Off into the clutches of tremendous bouts with AnPar (Analysis Paralysis). Having only 10 action points to work with and so many options slowed our game down to a crawl...I'm not too bad with AnPar (except when I'm first starting a game) but she's a gamer who likes to make the 'perfect move' every turn.

So our first game took a -Long- time (I want to say 2 1/2-3 hours).

Two days later, we've got time to play another game:

Me: So, what do you want to play today?

Her: Ghost Stories?

Me: *facepalm*

And yea, Tikal has never left the shelf since. I hope it gets another shot when enough time has past, but in the end, the pseudo worker placement/area control mechanic didn't do much for me either

I got this one shortly after it came out, mainly because of all the rave reviews it seemed to be getting. I'm always looking for solid, light filler with some actual tension, and it seemed like porting Dominion to dice would at least make it more dynamic.

Fail.

You don't actually make any real decisions in this game. Roll, summon your guys, and buy the best guy you can with the leftovers (and it's virtually always crystal which guy is the best guy). Maybe sometimes you have to decide whether to summon a junky guy or buy a better guy, but you virtually always summon because, hey, that's the point of the game. Maybe sometimes you have two similarly valued guys at the same cost, but that's rare. Combo that w/ the fact that the guy who rolls an eight first round (which happens not infrequently) virtually always just wins, and I begin to wonder how much game there is here. Yeah rolling dice is fun, but I prefer to have to think at least a little bit.

Not fun. Pretty boring.
All these different characters, but really not much different.
All these different characters, but many look nearly the same, so without painting them they blend together.

shake
All the different varieties of play should have been a signal that--they didn't get one right.

The whole game is walk in room, pick or bash chest, try to leave in time.

Comes with a bunch of Aracana cards, but really only about 4 different types, and mostly they don't make any difference beside being annoying.

The plastic coins are really fiddly, and whoever has the most fiddles wins. Yay! REMORSE

Ugh.

I think people know that, deep down, monopoly isn't actually a terrible game.

I think they all like to be cool and jump on the hate-wagon.

I think that to sleep at night, they go online and gush about how awesome Monopoly Deal is.

Seriously?

It was only like three bucks, but there's still a little remorse.

How is this not on this list yet?

The guy at the FLGS said it best:
"There is a great game with these components.... its just not the one that comes in the box."

I am still looking for this great game but I am sure it is out there somewhere.....

One of the most expensive games I ever purchased. At the time it was highly rated on BGG, like #30 or so. It turns out to be very very long, very very dull, with very few player interactions. Besides the $$, two long afternoons that I'll never get back.

The only good news is that I was able to trade it to get most of my $$ back in the value of some good games.

Now that I'm "dinged" it, I fully expect some BGG'ers to comment how off-base I am. There seems to be a R&B cult that carefully monitors the game here on BGG, attempting to deflect any negative comments about this snooze-fest of a game.

This game could do with only 56 cards, and be significantly smaller. Played it twice with absolutely zero fun. Yawn. Donated it to the local library in the end.

I'm a big time Magic: The Gathering fan, and I'm always looking for the net best thing. This game promised a good multiplayer element, it seemed easy to teach, and I dig the theme. There are also so many comments saying "this is as fun as Magic, but you don't need to keep on buying cards".

Lies. Lies, I tell you! cry

For starters, you can't play a tournament-legal deck with the box. You'd need two (or even three) copies if you want to fill the requisites of 60-cards, 3-copies-per-card. And if you buy those extra copies, you find yourself with a lot of cards that'll never be used and that you can't even trade away, as everyone has them.

I was so angry that I haven't even played the crippled version they advertise as a full game yet. Grumble. yuk

I was so looking forward to this game. One play was all it took to ruin it for me. By the end of the game everyone felt the Uncontrollable Urge card breaks the game and we were all relieved when it ended. This is also the game that made me refuse to buy another FFG game without first playing it. I've been burned by the FFG hype too often. I was fortunate to be able to trade this pig away for Hannibal the following week.

No one working on this project ever played it. I am certain. No one spent even a minute wondering how they could put a new spin or resurrect an under utilized game system. No one cared enough to push the envelope. The only meeting they ever had went like, "Mold a bunch of plastic pieces and put them in a big box with a large map. Rules? Who cares, just slap something together tonight, we go to print in the morning."

I am an avid fan of the moment in time and theme central to this game, but despite that when I consider the time and money wasted on this dreck I want to dry heave.

I have no idea what the powers that be at Eagle Games do with their free time because it sure isn't play good board games.

On the bright side, since buying this abortion I never purchased another game without first looking at BBG reviews. Yeah'all have managed to save me so much money that was later just spent on much better games.

Probably going to be an unpopular choice, but I bought it along with a couple of expansions, loved the bits, set it up, had my sons (10 and 12) play a round with me...and it just fell flat. "Meh."
It's possible probable I didn't give it enough of a chance. I traded it away pretty hastily to get a game for a friend of mine (there was a time constraint on the trade).
Sigh.

* The MV has tokens for *every* iconic D&D monster. Except that, as I said, the D&D Miniatures stupidly had many non-iconic monsters, making these products incompatible. (But would it have killed the MV to not include cougars?)

* With the D&D Boardgames and upcoming D&D Skirmish Games, we FINALLY have D&D monsters in miniatures form and non-random purchase. No more piecemeal purchases. And the D&D monster sculpts *are* good. So now the tokens aren't as useful.

* The D&D adventures have monster stats written into them. That's an improvement that makes the MV less useful for us lazy GM's who use D&D adventures.

* The fantastic DM's Kit D&D adventure is followed up by a crappy one in the MV.

If you have limited funds and can make up your own adventures, you buy this. Otherwise, you're not going to have as much use out of it.

Hey man-- smell my finger!

I hesitated to put this game on here, because I certainly don't regret buying it. It's just, well....

I really don't get a lot of fun out of playing this game. It could be because I'm no good at it. It could be because it's too simple for me. The truth is, I really don't know. I just find it dry, dull & uninteresting.

That being said, I'm not going to get rid of it. I'm glad I bought it. Because it's the one game I can get non-gamers to play, hands down. I even got one of my BFFs, who is an avid anti-gamer, to play it. And she won, as well! I have also converted a few into playing more complex games. A lot of my gamer friends love it. It's a game I can get pretty much any kid to play. It's the ideal 'gateway' game for me. There have been a lot of good times w/ it, as I like playing w/ people who are enjoying themselves.

So I've had fun in the experience, but never in the game itself. Which is a big disappointment, as I had a lot of good expectations for it. And most of them have panned out, except for the part where *I* like the game. Go figure.

ok I didn't buy this game, but one of my gaming friends who did not have any games decided that he would buy a game for the group.

Enthusiastically we read the rules and set up the game. The rules were a mess and none of the obstacle rules made much sense. The dragons are too light, too flimsy and have all kids of fragile projects. We could not go a round with out knocking over someones dragon or losing its spot on the board. About 1/3 the way through the game, I snapped one in half while setting down on the board.

When we were done, it was thrown into the box and never hit a table since.

Needless to say, my friend has never bought another game untried again.

When I was in the 5th grade, bought a bunch of decks and cards.

Learned to play in like the 7th grade, by the actual rules. Was sourly disappointed, when at the time was discovering magic: the gathering, which this game had the audacity to copy, and then make ten times worse with its own rules.

Now I look at the cards, they are thin, cheesy, have poor art, and are small. With text you need a microscope to read.

Buyer's remorse, hell yes. Waste of money, i'd say.

And its expansions...

Ok, I'll go ahead and add a game to this list, to counteract my outpouring of snark.

Now, let me start off by saying; I really like this game. I think it is probably one of the most interesting "level up your dude and go kill the big bad" games out there. There is so much variety to each class of character and no one way is the "right way" to play each. Now... that said...

This is a LOOONNNNNGGGGGG game. Even with the "Deadly PVP" variant (which, imho, is a neccessity). I have played it probably a total of 5 times in the 6 years I've owned it... and probably only 2 or 3 of those to completion. It is so hard to get it to the table, and if everyone isn't an experienced player (and when does THAT ever happen?), then it is even SLOWER as folks have to figure out which abilities to gain, etc... While I enjoy playing it, the reality is that I would probably rather play something else more, given the time this takes. I don't completely REGRET buying this one... but, it is in my pile of games I am taking to a local game store's flea market in a few weeks...

We've tried 3 times to play this game. But about 4 machines in I see steam coming out of my husband's ears and know it's time to call it quits! We just can't seem to figure out how to keep track of all the changes we make so that we can keep an accurate score. It's very annoying!

You can probably see where this one is going already.

I have a background of liking anime and manga, going back almost 20+ years, and at the time when this game came out, I was obsessed with the Resident Evil Deck Building Game. I saw this in the store and thought "Hey a deck building game with anime characters! That could be cool."

I didn't buy it tho, and when I went back to the store later, they only had 2 copies of the game left on the shelf (they had 10 originally). I took a look yet again and I noticed the name "Takehito Harada" on the back of the box. Harada is the character designer for the Disgaea series of video games (among others), and he's pretty much one of my favorite artists. I bought the game and went home to crack it open.

After looking through all the cards and reading the rulebook, the game basically felt like a re-themed Dominion, only you buy maids instead of provinces. I felt dirty, and put the game away in a drawer instead of proudly displaying it on my shelf like all my other games.

I still haven't played the game, and I doubt I ever will.

I remember buying this one. I even got a nice 30% off discount because it had a damaged bowing back of the box. Still doesn't fix the problem that this game is so sadly broken!shake

Here's my brief review of the game from a while back

"Fabulous bits (Except for the "minimalist abstraction" that stands in for Japan as a gameboard). Gameplay-summarized best this way. Take the 20 sided die included, roll. If you roll a "1" you lose. Repeat until someone loses last...Truly a broken design that is nigh-unplayable the same way "The Tick" is nigh-invulnerable. What a waste of good theme and bits."

I found the 1.5 rules set that came with the game unplayable, there just isn't enough information or examples to understand the intended mechanics of the game clearly.

Now there is a thread from the publisher that the rules were not meant to be complete, Why the Rules are incomplete (On Purpose) comments welcome.

Yes, I am a dumb-ass to pay to play test someone's game.

I have never had that chance to actually play this game. Its hard to get 7 people in a room all day and if you do I hear they may end up hating each other at the end. However I am intrigued by the idea of pure negotiation.

This is the only one in my collection that I wish I had the money back to get something else. Bought it on the strengths of its top-5 rating at the time, without realizing that that rating is based primarily on serious game geeks' impressions of its 4/5-player experience; the two-player stinks, and the game overall is a very deep, mathy experience not for the casual gamer. As my wife is my main gaming partner/opponent, and the rest of my family/friends are still dipping their toes into gateways, it's not seen the table in over a year now, since the initial two plays to get the idea of the game. At the Gates of Loyang scratches a somewhat similar itch and the wife prefers it (not by leaps and bounds, but she enjoys it which is more than can be said for PG).
