There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.

In the wonderful game, Bonaparte at Marengo, this is how to get nasty Frenchies out of a village.

I really enjoyed thinking about the last TGIF poll
(The 365th Edition of the TGIF Poll; if anyone is not familiar with these weekly polls, they are a lot of fun and a great way to celebrate Friday - Blott has been doing them for years.)

I thought it would be fun to chew the fat on a variant of this here.
These are all of the BGG mechanics:
https://boardgamegeek.com/browse/boardgamemechanic
For some reason "real-time" and "negotiation" are listed as BGG categories and not mechanics, but you can pick from them as well, I personally consider them mechanics.

Out of all the mechanics:
1. Which one would you pick as your favorite?
2. What is your favorite game that uses this?
3. What is a game that you don't like that uses this, despite it being your favorite mechanic?

4. Which one would you pick as your least favorite?
5. Which is your least favorite game that uses this?
6. What is a game that you actually like, despite it using this mechanic?

("...and why" for each of the above)

Some of you I know locally, some have posted some photos in the first few GLs, but some of you I have no idea what you look like! It'd be nice to put a face to the avatar. Post a pic or two here of yourself.
If you'd rather post a celebrity you've been told you look like, or a cartoon character you feel represents you, that's cool too cool
