Yup, we have all done it. Seen that wonderful bookcase shaped box, drooled as we grabbed it, chortled to ourselves as we paid $2.99 for it, and then gasped in dismay to find that it is a piece of crap when we get home. But is it really crap? eBait or eBrick?

This list is for every AH game that is rated between 0 and 4.99. Of course, this list is open for debate and enlightenment. I'll also highlight the nicest thing said about each game.

Part two will show up later this week.

The nicest thing said about this game?
"Monopoly style game that involves in landing on countries and not getting screwed out of events. " - cratoga, with a rating of 5.

Doesn't sell on ebay so let it sit on the thrift store shelf.

Nicest comment?
"This one seemed to never end. As a result, it's one of the few games I can say is clearly broken. The box compared it to Monopoly, but it left out most of the good parts. Has a humorous element, as does its cousin Smoker's Wild, but Smoker's is a vastly superior game." - Socal Tim, rating 2.

Nicest comment?
"Another attempt to capitalize on "The Exorcist" paranoia and a 70's attempt to sexualize Wicca. Get a OUIJI board if you really want paranormal results." - Offa, rating of 3

But perhaps this has some ebay value?
One sold on Sep 8 for $20.49, so some value here. Just don't try to play it & enkoy it.

Nice things to say?
Jim_P - "Played once... probably never again. Rated a 4 only because of its collectable status." - rating of 4

Ebay value? There is none listed on ebay but I'm thinking somebody out there knows for sure.

But this one DOES have ebay value. I remember one a few years back that hit $1500

Latest sales of this game have been $3.99 and $8.99. Decide for yourself.

PAYDIRT sez - "Not really a game. More of a historical "tool." You would have to own it to understand what I mean. I can imagine some joker trying to use it for "other" purposes; don’t recommend doing that. I rate it a "5" for a middle ground rating." and rates it a 5.

No sales on ebay. Any ideas?

zefquaavius is the nicest one, rating it a 5.7 and saying "Very weird mechanisms, even with regards to the supposèd concept of the game, at times, but it was unorthodox fun!"

Not worth much on ebay, either.

$31.00 was shelled out on Sep 9. Nope, it wasn't neowhere2. Others are listed but no action. eBait or eBrick?

1 rating of 4 by Jim_P who says "Look at a picture of a "wacky" patent drawing, then try to decide what the invention is supposed to do. Most of them are quite easy, but there are some that defy description.

A fun game the first few times, but then becomes excedingly boring. Besides, if you have a good memory, once you've gone through all of the inventions in the book, you'll win every time."

No ebay data.

357 ratings and this comes up with a 4.1

Boy, some folks are really, really generous. DHolte rates it a 9 and lies when he says "The Boy Scouts of America has this game as an Eagle requirement.

Coincidentally, the Vulture Scouts of America have this game as a requirement as well."

eBay value? $23.50 on Sep 16. 3 others at $9.99 & $4.99. 5 others with no bids for less. $ in active and 18 for sale in the stores. No bids.

Make your own judgement. I say eBrick.

Blackwind, our former King, rates it an 8 and bestows this praise " Picked this up at a flea market for a $1.00. Played it a couple of times and thought, "What an interesting idea for a game, but WHY?" Who the hell likes jury duty? Ok..I do, but I'm wierd. This was one of those sophisticated 60's intellecutal games, too bad its not fun to most people to "debate" things. I'd play this more often. Unfortunately, I sold mine off and made a profit. No one wanted to play anyway."

There are a lot of them on eBay, few sell. Take your chances.

muhlakai throws down with a 7.6, 2.6 points higher than the next guy, and he postulates "Great game. Plays much better than you'd ever expect, given that you need to do some math throughout the game just to track your own money. The game feels something like Monopoly in reverse: you start out owning everything and spend your time trying to do everything you can to make sure that your money is well-handled, indirectly gaining you more money."

eBrick.

Eddy Bee raves, with an 8, "Simple, effective, and an enjoyable strategic contest. The card-based combat resolution system is one of the best. Recommend playing with most of the advanced optional rules to add depth."

You MIGHT get $10 for this one.

WOW, there are a couple of 10s, an 8, a 7.5 and then 6's.
fenix71 states it simply "simple and playable with occasional gamers"

and, jaw dropping, you can get between $9.99 and $33. 5 sold this month, 3 over $30.
