There are a lot of games out there for a newbie like me to want to try. A LOT.

But then, there are those games out there that just don't cut it. Either I've played them and I did not like them, or I just have no interest (which can change, granted).

I tried Magic: The Gathering at the worst possible time to try it. I got into it when the Moxes and Black Lotus were restricted but still playable, but completely unavailable. Thus, I would lose a lot of matches because the players I was up against were able to get out a lot of mana fast and just pummel me.

After awhile, pummelling gets old.

We'll ignore the whole money sink issue.

I tried this as well. The game mechanics were decent and it was easy to pick up.

I just really stunk at it, badly.

I picked this up because I had fond memories of the first Marvel Role Playing Game (the FASERIP edition), even though I never played it. This one... I really did not understand why they did what they did.

I picked up the iOS version because it was free figuring that I can use it to figure out the actual game when I decide to pick it up.

I've played a few games, and I am not going to pick up the card game.

Another app version I picked up to see how I would like the actual game.

I didn't like the app, and probably won't get the real game either.

I'm sure anyone who has seen any of my other lists will say, "But Dave, that's a Fluxx game. You like Fluxx."

They would be right, I do like Fluxx. Cthulhu Fluxx, however, just does not do it for me.

I just never really got into this CCG. I think it may have been that I really did not get the whole torpor thing.

I generally don't like negotiation games and I cannot get into this game at all.

STUPID!!!

I like a good challenge. A difficult game does not deter me.

But a game that brutally punishes the players just for playing is stupid.

This is what I call a corner game, as in I got so frustrated with it I tossed it in a corner never to be played again.
