Losing (okay, not a mechanism but there you have it).

When I play High Frontier, I am so immersed in trying to execute my plan and accomplish my goals that I lose the entire competitiveness thing and am playing purely for the joy of the experience.

Come to think on it, all Sierra Madre games do that for me. Exploring the sandbox is just incredible.

Possible Reason 4 – It’s a natural law

The scientific rebuttal to the Keanudician position is that it is a natural law that once every decade, Keanu must star in an action movie named after his character whose name is John and where there is an antagonist played by a Swedish actor. It is one of the basic building blocks of the universe, which cannot exist without it. This constitutes the second law of Keanudynamics.

Scouting
You have heard a lot about a game, and read about it, but you've never played it. You enjoy reading about the rules develop, and seeing picture of the setup. You like reading session reports from people who have played it, and talking about it, even though you haven't played it yet. You might even own it!

What's a game you are currently scouting?

-----------

High Frontier hit my radar about 2 years ago. I looked for an opportunity to try it out at BGG.Con but no such luck. I even heard totally made up quotes from famous names such as "I heard that Michael Mendes played it, and said it's one of the best games he's ever played!" They launched a kickstarter, and I backed it. Still waiting for it to arrive.

The ambitious breadth and scope of the game are what drew my attention. I love games where you have time to build up, and then see a (hopefully) big payoff near the end. The reputed scientific accuracy is also a draw, although I'm sure it's hardly rocket science. Can't wait to play it someday!

#5 High Frontier

Time Played: Genygwacon 2014-15. We played the basic game, I taught. (Rather poorly, IIRC, since I hadn't played it myself beforehand.)

Thoughts: I like it! Unfortunately, no one else I played with did. I really feel like a scientist at NASA or wherever, planning and executing space missions. And then groaning and facepalming when my rocket inevitably botches an aerobrake hazard and disintegrates on impact. Ah, space travel.

Next steps: Having seen Interstellar, and more recently The Martian, has rekindled my interest in this game. I already have the second edition, but I've backed the third edition on Kickstarter and I'm kind of in a holding pattern, waiting for it to come out. It has some good solitaire scenarios, so I'll play those if nothing else. It'll also be the centerpiece of a spaceship-themed game day I'll have at some point. (The other games being Galaxy Trucker, and maybe Space Empires: 4X)

This includes the 2nd edition base game (Very Good), the 1st edition expansion (Very Good), and the 2nd edition Colonization expansion (New).

This game's in great shape. A previous owner pimped the game, replacing the 52 water disks with more than 70 acrylic crystals in the same colors. Additionally, the listed six wooden disks for claims and outposts per player were replaced with three disks for claims, and 2 pawns for outposts. (If this is an issue for you, I can help source replacement disks. It's totally conceivable to need more than 3 claims or 2 outpost markers in play.) One of 19 black "busted claims" cubes disks is also absent.

Free shipping in the USA. I pay $15 elsewhere.

Summary of your gaming taste:
I like epic games. That tends to put me in the wargame, Ameritrash, heavy Euro neck of the woods.



Seven games that, altogether, approximate where your gaming tastes lie:
High Frontier
Totaler Krieg!
Antiquity
Here I Stand
Twilight Struggle
Heroscape Master Set: Rise of the Valkyrie
A Study in Emerald


Three popular/well-regarded games that you dislike:
The Castles of Burgundy-Everything I despise- multiplayer solitaire, point salad, long downtime.
Stone Age- Buy buildings that do..... nothing.
Ticket to Ride

Three unpopular/less-regarded games you like:

Founding Fathers- the other Founding Fathers games.
Revolution: The Dutch Revolt 1568-1648- a heavy Euro that is like a light Here I Stand.
Age of Napoleon- very underrated games that captures the epic period in a tight package.

Do you use the BGG Rating scale (roughly)?
Absolutely. I use the rubric as written.

Do you write comments (with or without a rating)?

Inconsistently.

Do you rate games without playing them?
Uh, no.

Do you rate games after one play?
Yep.
