Okay, now it starts to be a tradition. And as even the jury of the Spiel Jahres has already chosen the best games of the year I guess it's really time to make my (as usual, half-year-late) list of the games published in 2011 that I have played.


The numbered ("ranked") games in this list (first two pages) are these games. You can comment why you agree or why you think I'm stupid to think a game is good when it's terrible.

Then (pages 3 and 4) you'll see the games I still would like to try. You can tell me why I should avoid them based on the first page or why I should choose one to be the next one I try.

The rest is for your suggestions: If you think there are other games not listed that I should try (published in 2011 according to BGG) based on my opinions about the games I played.


Just some notes:
1. I usually try to choose to learn games that I guess I would like. So I like the majority of the games listed - actually, I would happily replay the first 30-35 games or so and wouldn't mind having them in my collection.
2. I don't think complexity or weight has anything to do with quality. You'll see I prefer some ultra-light fillers over complex games. I don't think that's an outrage.

AND THE GAMES I'D STILL LOVE TO TRY:

I think I bought this expansion before I bought 7 Wonders. But since I bought 7 Wonders I have never played it - so the expansion remained in the box. I'm sure I won't buy the upcoming Cities expansion before we start to play with these.

I enjoyed Saboteur and bought it together with this expansion. Well, the expansion has exceptionally bad, underwritten rules but that's another story; I need to find some folks who want to play Saboteur with me before we can try the expansion.
