What the heck is 4G?
The Great Geek Game Giveaway (4G) - Thread III

How do I enter?
Create a new GeekList Item (click "Add Item") and choose your favorite game (or one of your favorites) to be the list item.
In that list item, answer the following two questions:

Which thing in my "For Trade" list do you find the most interesting and why?
(I'm probably not going to send you this; in fact I'm probably auctioning that very thing off for charity. I'm just interested in how popular those things are.)

What are you looking for in a game?
(The more specific you are here, the better answers you will get!)

Is this a giveaway?
Of course it is! Sometime around the end of the month I will pick a winner, who will get something.

Anything else?
4G for November and December are spoken for, but if anyone would like to run it in October, let me know!

Maybe Concordia and my very close 2nd choice Brass: Birmingham are too new to me and still in the 'ol honeymoon phase to qualify here, but I'll stick to my guns even though I try to keep my Hot and Top separate.

* Which thing in my "For Trade" list do you find the most interesting and why?

Space Cadets: Dice Duel is in my collection and is currently unplayed. I find it interesting that we haven't played it yet because it sounds like hilarious real-time chaos fun, maybe I just haven't gotten the courage to teach it. You've played a couple rounds of this, why are you trading? (Not judging or hoping for validation, just genuinely curious.)

I find the game itself interesting because there aren't too many real-time games that look fun to me. We also picked up Capt Sonar a while back and wondered if it was a SC:DD killer.

* What are you looking for in a game?

This is a tough question for me because I'm constantly trying to balance acquiring games that I think I can use to reel in my non-gamer extended family vs games that will stand the test of time. Lately it's been mostly trying to nab games that play well solo.

I've played Viticulture once or twice and thought it was a really good game; so the complete collection must surely be even better!

The main thing I look for in a game are interesting and meaningful decisions; being able to plan ahead and have an overall strategy, but needing tactical flexibility. Viticulture has all of these.

A theme which reflects the mechanisms (or the other way around) is also important - I like to feel that the actions and choices I'm taking make sense from the viewpoint of whoever the player is representing.

Finally, I look for the game to be the right length for the type of game it is. Some games have great mechanisms but outstay their welcome; others you feel are just getting going when they end. But if a game can build to a climax and end thrillingly, over a period of time that matches the scope of the mechanisms, I'm happy.

It's close between Cosmic Encounter, Mechs vs. Minions and Middara: Unintentional Malum – Act 1, but I have so very many fond memories of playing Cosmic Encounter I have to give it top spot!


Which thing in my "For Trade" list do you find the most interesting and why?

There's a few games I do really want to try, mainly Merchant of Venus (Second Edition) and Viticulture but I think to properly answer the question I would have to go with King of New York: Power Up!. I would be using the evolution cards while playing those creatures in King of Tokyo, but it's not high on my wishlist because I really want King of Tokyo: Dark Edition instead.


What are you looking for in a game?

Oh my... something fun! Personally my favorite are cooperative, theme/story driven games. Not so much cooperative puzzle games. (i.e. Arkham Horror > Eldritch Horror) But the main thing I look for in games are how family-friendly they are because my main gaming partners are my boys. Even solo games I prefer not to be too dark since there's a very good chance one or more of them will end up watching me play the game. I am very much an omnigamer though, not minding playing most anything placed before me. But I do greatly appreciate a nice looking game! Even if it's marbles on a wooden board, I want table presence.

Microbadge: Black Lives MatterMicrobadge: Citizenship Recognition - Level II - If I have seen further, it's only by standing on the apex of other's dice.Microbadge: Level 07 BGG posterMicrobadge: Golden MeepleMicrobadge: Geek Regular
This is one of my favourite games for the following reasons:-
1. It can officially be played solo. I know that I can play Pandemic and Forbidden Island solo but games like Catan, Ticket to Ride, King of Tokyo, and many of my other games are primarily multiplayers.
2. The Theme. I love the Lovecraft Mythos. Firstly I am not endorsing Lovecraft’s racist views, racism is a horrible plague upon our world, but I do not love the mythos he created and the fact anyone can write a short story and not have to worry about being sued as the mythos is in the public domain.
3. The mechanics. At its core this game is much like cooperative games such Pandemic and Forbidden Island. The game however, has the added bonus of a Doom Counter, Rumour Tokens and Lost in Time cards found in Forsaken Lore. Plus when you’re defeated, either by death or madness, you’re not completely out of the game, you get a new Investigator after the mythos phase
4. The variable villains. Who doesn’t love getting to pick the bad guy? The different gods give a different level of difficulty, I can beat Yig but have difficulty in beating Shub Niggurath or Yog Sothoth.


The game in my wish list I find interesting the most is Betrayal at House on the Hill, and the reason why is:-
1. I like the hidden traitor mechanic. When you roll less than the number of Omen cards that has already been drawn, the haunt begins. The haunt revealer looks up on the index who is the haunt traitor. The haunt traitor then begins the chasing down the other players using the demonic armies of hell. What o really like is that absolutely every player at the start may be the traitor but you play the game like any other co-op.
2. Much like Eldritch Horror, this is a fun game to play on Halloween.


Having actually read the rules of the competition
The game in your for trade list I like is Unspeakable Words.
1. It’s a Cthulhu game and who doesn’t love a Cthulhu game (anyone who says they don’t will be visited in their dreams by Cthulhu and have their sanity slowly eroded away)
2. It’s a fun twist on scrabble where the letters are assigned points based on the angles within the letters instead of their occurrence in The English language.
3. The insanity mechanic is fun. When you play a word you have to roll a D20 for a Sanity Check. If you score less than your score you lose one sanity token. When you are down to one sanity token you are declared as insane and therefor can just make up words to gain points, so long as you don’t roll less than your score during your sanity check. When you’ve lost all your sanity tokens (little Cthulhu shaped tokens) you are out of the game. Last one standing is the winner
4. A fun simple card and dice game

What am I looking for in a game?
1. I’m looking for a game that primarily allows me to play solo. As my family are only occasional gamers which means I am often playing with myself (mind out of the gutter please)
2. A rulebook that isn’t like translating Greek into danish. Some of my FFG games suffer from overly complicated rulebook syndrome. Once I learn the game it becomes dead easy to play, not necessarily easy to win, but it often requires me to seek tutorials and/or idiots guides online.
3. Good mechanics. I like co-ops; but also hidden traitor (Betrayal at the House on the Hill etc), hidden movement (Fury of Dracula), Card drafting, engine building (Scythe).
4. Theme. If you actually look closely most games have a theme, even euros. In Catan you are a settler building settlements and roads, in Ticket to Ride you are a railroad tycoon. I love a good theme in a game. It’s like I’m gaming a story.
5. Something that I’m not likely to want to trade off for something else. I like to trade off games I don’t need or want, I don’t want to take a newish game and trade it for something on my wish list because I might end up regretting it.

Anything Else
It was my birthday a few days ago, fingers crossed it grants me luck

This game had me hooked from the very first time I played it ages ago. I always enjoyed Puerto Rico but for me cards have always been more fun than meeples and a game that let's me use a single card in multiple unique ways will almost always be a hit. Needless to say, I rate this game much higher than Puerto Rico despite having had hundreds of plays of both

-> Which thing in my "For Trade" list do you find the most interesting and why?

I find it interesting that you own and want to trade Murder on the Cosmic Express despite rating it fairly high (8) yet even more intriguingly want it in trade as well. Is there something lacking in your copy because of which you want a newer (I presume) copy?

-> What are you looking for in a game?

Mainly a game I can play with my spouse. That said, I enjoy a lot of themes (Cthulhu, Zombies, etc) that she isn't a huge fan of so I'm also always on the lookout for games that I can play solo as well.

At the same time, I both look for engine builders and/or card drafting (or both?) but don't really enjoy deck building (I find deck building too tedious so I prefer those in a digital format instead) while, my spouse primarily enjoys games with a beautiful artwork and simple mechanisms (anything above a 3 in complexity is usually an instant turn-off for her, in most instances)

I am enamored of the auction/worker placement combination. (It also doesn't hurt that I obtained this shortly after I started dating my eventual wife, so I have especially pleasant memories associated with it.)

Unspeakable Words is probably the most interesting item on your trade list. I find the conceit that you can start using nonsense words if you lose too much sanity amusing.

I lean toward brain-burning games, particularly those that work well with two players. No pure abstracts, because my wife likes to be able to apply her own narrative to a game.

7. Board Game: Great Western Trail [Average Rating:8.29 Overall Rank:10]
Board Game: Great Western Trail
Great Western Trail is Alex Pfister's masterpiece and one of the best euro-style games out there. It has a funny theme and a surprisingly high level on interaction for an euro-game. Games are always tight and there are multiple paths to victory. Definitely a must have in any gamer's collection.

Which thing in my "For Trade" list do you find the most interesting and why?
Definitely Shadows over Camelot. I'm a sucker for games with a traitor mechanic, and this one has caught my attention for quite some time. The fact it's a hard to find game also makes it more appetising.


What are you looking for in a game?
I look to escape from the real world, from work, and to have a good time. I don't spend time with games I don't like, nor with games that feel more like work than fun. There are too many good games to spend time with games that suck. I have to feel better at the end of a game that when I started playing it.

NOT AN ENTRY. I just won, don't pick me! PARTICIPATION ONLY.

So, I was going to (as usual) bring up my favorite game:
Board Game: Twilight Imperium (Third Edition)



But I realized I had a funny story about Eclipse, which is close to my favorite, so I went with that.

So, a few weeks back I saw a notification for BGG auction w/Eclipse. AND all expansions. Including the one I still don't have, Shadow of the Rift.
Me: Oooooh, nice price for all of that! Ah, well, it will be bid higher.

Last week I get another notification. 24 hrs left and no bids.
wow
"Hunny punkin! Sugar pie! Come look at this great deal!"

*Skeptical face from my lady dearest*

"Look, I can get this bundle, sell Eclipse: Rise of the Ancients (still going for $$$$) which I don't need another copy of, will have spent less than just purchasing Shadow of the Rift (also going for $$$) AND get another copy of the base game + Ship Pack 1 for my variant races, for free!!!!"

Then she started talking about rent and other things quite irrelevant to the topic. whistle
Like, seriously, it's called a Credit Card. Buy it now, and spend 4x the sticker price due to interest!
(Say that out loud to yourself three times and see if it still makes sense.)

Then I was hit with the sucker punch I missed. Shipping this great deal to me.
Oh. Um....but I still wants it?

We made the intelligent decision. Still no Shadows of the Rift for me..... cry


Anyway, to the topic on hand.
1)The item most interesting on your trade list.

Well, Civ & Adv Civ I find most interesting to try. They spawned TWO genres, one in boardgames and the other computer games. They are also still considered good games today! I do love sprawling, epic games. Unfortunately I couldn't possibly play Civ at this time. Soon....

The most interesting name is Vikings Gone Wild. That just sounds like violent, chaotic fun!

The most interesting game to play with my kiddos is King of New York. A themed dicefest with Yahtzee mechanism sounds like fun for everyone!

The most interesting game I've never heard of before was The Game of 49. I've really enjoyed bidding games in the past, and that actually looks quite fun. My lady might want more theme, though.

2) What are you looking for in a game?
Me, personally? Big sprawling war-filled empire-building epics with nukes everywhere!

Oh, games that will actually get played?
Killjoy.
Well, the gamgroup is leaning towards heavily thematic Euros. Which are fun. I guess.
(Kidding, I do like Euros too.)

I've also recently become obsessed with playing card game systems so that's an interesting idea. I guess I'm looking for versatility & room to design my own games?

This ha been fun!

I'd be hard-pressed to name any single game as my favorite, but I've been playing this a bunch lately online, and it's certainly my favorite Splotter game.

Concordia and Viticulture + Tuscany are others among my favorites that have already been mentioned.

In your trade list, all your Illuminati games are the most interesting to me. I played it a lot with friends back around Y2K, before losing contact with that group of people for a while. I purchased a copy years later and tried to play with other people, but it fell completely flat.

What am I looking for in a game?

I enjoy many types of games, which is why it's hard to pick a favorite. I like engine building games (Viticulture fits here), thinky economic style games (Splotter games), cooperative puzzly games (Pandemic and the like), trick taking games (Hearts, Wizard, The Crew, etc), and the occasional deceptively sneaky gateway game (Carcassonne or Azul). Theme is nice, but I'm happy enough with it being pasted on if the game is fun.

I really loved this game. Cooperative play with a game group that was really into it. The tension and the surprise reveals all played into probably the best gaming experience of my life so far. I keep hoping to recapture that with other games.

From the For Trade list...
There are 3 games on your For Trade list that appeal to me, for very different reasons,
1) Viticulture: Complete Collector's Edition: This is a game I have heard a lot of love for and it seems like the game would be something I would like but for some reason the wine theme is a turn off for me. I would love to play it and try it out but As the primary purchaser of games in my group I haven't ever wanted to invest in it to try it.
2) Space Cadets: Dice Duel seems like it would be a great fit for my lunch time game group. Does it really play in 30 minutes? Especially with the Die Fighter Expansion it seems like it would invoke the Chaos of RoboRally (another favorite) with my favorite theme of space.
3) King of Tokyo/New York seems like it would be a fun game to play with my kids and might also work for a lunch group. Played King of Tokyo once and it was enjoyable.

What am I looking for?
I love to play all sorts of games and I enjoy them most of the time. That being said, practically, if I want to get a game played it would need to fit with one of my two play groups: my work group (once I go back to work) or my family. My work group is ideally an easy to teach game that we can play in about 45 minutes. Themes can be all over the place but a wide variety of potential player counts is a plus since attendance varies significantly. My family includes my wife (co-op and less than an hour), a teenage daughter (self proclaimed hater of all games) and two 9 year olds that will play almost anything but can get bored. Alternatively, a good solo mode is an option.

But, I'm going to go with Grave Robbers From Outer Space.
Grave Robbers is a campy make your own B-movie card game that is an absolute hoot with the right group.

Quote:

Fun.
From my BGG profile: "Boardgames are for relaxing, having fun, and being social."
Taking Grave Robbers and Council of Blackthorn as examples. These 2 games are amazing with a table full of gamers who love to talk it up and taunt each other, but they fall very flat with gamers who just want to play and keep their mouths shut.
I like games that encourage tabletalk.
Most games do to some extent.

Having said all that, there are quiet thinky games I enjoy from time to time, but mostly I want that social interaction.

I do tend not to like social deduction games, though.

Scythe doesn't get played as much for me (though I really need to break it out for the solo mode!) but I love the engine-building of it!

Which thing in my "For Trade" list do you find the most interesting and why?
For the joy of looking through a for trade list, I find Shadows over Camelot and Viticulture: Complete Collector's Edition the most interesting. The former is what drew me in to board gaming as a hobby. A friend whom I don't see often loaned it to a mutual friend of ours, providing me the opportunity to first play it. The latter of the two has looked interesting to me for a while, as the theme looks fun and I really enjoy worker placement.

What are you looking for in a game?
Historically I've loved playing cooperative games, though opportunities for grouping have have been rarer lately (not all because of Covid, but enough so). Lately I've looked more at games with worker placement/engine building that provide multiple paths to victory. Having a solo mode has also been a factor I've looked at more recently.

This is the game I'm interested from your for trade list because:

1. I'm always looking for games that tell great stories. I like immersing myself into the theme because I may not be good at a lot of things but I do have a large amount of imagination. (Great to use when stuck in long, boring queues.)

2. While there are a lot of awesome narrative games, a lot of them are too complex than what I willing to drive into at this time. I'd love to try DnD-like dungeon crawlers but sometime there is just too much upkeep for me to handle or rules heavy for my taste. I'd love to try Robinson Crusoe but I'd wouldn't even be able to get myself trapped in the cursed island if I attempt that one (so I wisely have it in the love to but don't buy it on my wishlist.

Games I like to look for

1. As an avid reader, my first love is stories and then gameplay. Narrative get to place me in a world other than my own and gameplay makes me work for the goals. Still between the two, I'm more for story over game mechanics.

2. As a solo player, I need a game I can play solo or at least cooperative as a team of two. Four is possible as long as there isn't too much to figure out per player; but solo is preferable.

I first played TM at a local board game convention. After one play, I entered the TM tournament in the hopes of winning a copy. I made it to the finals, but lost to some much more experienced TM players. It took me a couple of years to actually buy the game (a used copy) because I thought my family would not like it much. Well, my wife will play it with me and my son absolutely loves it but refuses to play it 2p against me. I really like what the expansions offer and ALWAYS use Prelude now.

Which thing in my "For Trade" list do you find the most interesting and why?
Trekking the National Parks - I have always had a soft spot for natural beauty and would some day love to visit all of the National Parks. Also, this is the type of game that my usually non-gaming wife and daughter will play regularly.

What are you looking for in a game? - I mainly look for games that are simple and family friendly while at the same time have a lot of replayability, are NOT overly simplistic yet are simple enough for non-gamers to learn quickly, have a fair amount of strategy yet do not induce analysis paralysis. Because my wife and I are nearing the age of becoming empty nesters, they have to play well at the two player count. Finally, a good solo mode is always an added bonus.

Which thing in my "For Trade" list do you find the most interesting and why?

Vikings Gone Wild. I LOVE the combination of deck and base building. I wish I had a dedicated group to play this one and I would play it WAAAY more often than I get to now. I *think* I have all of the expansions (got a big set from BGC in a trade) but I've only played the base game a few times. I hate that it's over so soon and would really like some sort of common goal (my understanding is that one of the expansions adds co op, so maybe that itch could be scratched).

What are you looking for in a game?

I really enjoy deck / pool / base building in games. But there needs to be something interesting to do WITH that deck or pool.

Ascension is an example of how not to do deckbuilding (granted I've only played the base and first couple of expansions). The only thing you can do with your deck is buy more cards / kill monsters. Sometimes you'll be required to do one or the other, regardless of what comes up in your deck (or how you built it).

Trains is another one that I didn't care for. The deck building and map aspect just didn't jive together very well (imo).

I've really been enjoying Automobiles on Yucata with Derek, though I'm not sure if the turn to turn upkeep and actions would translate very well physically. I played Legendary several times a week for the better part of 18 months and could easily see myself going back to it, given the circumstances. I love Orleans and Hyperborea. I really enjoy Vikings Gone Wild.

I like co op games (whether it's the invasion scenario in orleans, or not even a deck builder). Flash Point, Sentinels of the MU, Mechs vs Minions, Aeon's End are other examples of good (imo) co ops.

Another thing I've come to enjoy is a really good story, as evidenced by my desire to buy and play ALL of Arkham Horror LCG. Something about the building of your character and having them go through a story that you feel like you're a part of (for good or for ill) is just really cool to me.

I also like a good brain burner. Not having a clear "best" decision is one of my favorite meaty things in gaming.

Toss up between "King of Tokyo Power Up" and "Agents of SMERSH". The former because King of Tokyo is a great game and I don't own Power Up. The latter because I'm intrigued by Agents of SMERSH - the storytelling aspect seems interesting and it sounded like a better version of Tales of the Arabian Nights. (Of course, I think SMERSH is up for a new KS campaign or similar soon so that also caught my attention.

What are you looking for in a game?
That's a loaded question. Playtime factors in, as does "will someone play this with me?". Outside of that, I tend to look for an absence of zombies/horror as one of my primary criteria. I like Engine Building, Deck Building, Dice, Worker Placement, and themes that work well with the mechanic chose. I tend to avoid bidding games or heavy "take that" games. I look at player count as well - we sometimes have friends over and that puts our player count at 6-8 so a higher count helps if we want everyone to join in. Otherwise, people get left out.

For some games, I look for "will my youngest want to play this" and take that into account. I picked up a copy of Fort and she took to it pretty well. Also picked up some of the Numerancy games and those worked pretty well.

Shelf space is also a consideration. Gloomhaven and the like are just too big and would take too long overall for them to get a serious consideration. A reasonably good game in a smaller package will get a little more attention.

The game I am most interested on your trade list is defiantly Murder on the Cosmic Express, because I have heard a lot of good things here.

But mostly what I look for in games is a theme I like, that is integrated well, not just pasted on. When the theme and the mechanics make sense together, it makes for a very immersive, and fun experience.

I'd have to say 7 Wonders is my favorite from your list. Why? I have a greater appreciation than most for the strategy that is in this game. During the long Northern winters, my family and I would play this for 2 hours every night - we got to where we could play a game in just 20 minutes! So I've probably played it 100 times or more!

What I look for in a game is a a combo of things: 1) a short play time, so that we can get in more games and give everyone a chance at winning, 2) a beautiful or at least engaging game board and/or components, 3) at least 5 players, and the potential for more is always best, and lastly, 4), it can't have elimination, because that sucks

I see a lot of promos that I wouldn't mind having, but I'll go with Shadows over Camelot, plus expansion. Ticket to Ride was one of the first games that got me back into the hobby, and I kinda hold a soft spot for Days of Wonder games.

What are you looking for in a game?

I think I'm more of an omnigamer, who likes to play much anything. It's easier for me to say mechanics that I care less for, which are predominately auctions, and 2-player combat. Also, due to less than stellar eyesight, any components with small text fonts are a slight turnoff now.

A few years ago I probably would have said Agricola was my favorite. I still love it, but I think Caverna has the edge by giving players more room to explore different approaches. Also, the expansion really knocks it out of the park.

The most interesting thing in your trade pile to me is Star Trek Panic. I enjoy Castle Panic for a simple good time, and I enjoy Star Trek. The idea of turning and flying the ship relative to the enemies sounds fun. I just wish it could have been the Enterprise-D (or DS9! or Disco!) instead of the original.

I’m pretty particular about what I add to my collection so I have a lot of criteria.
1. Positive representation. If a game has human characters, but they are all one gender/race, I pretty much stop considering it. Some mind find it limiting, but it helps weed out a lot of stuff.
2. Two player mode, no dummy. My oldest kid is starting to learn some games, but my primary gaming partner is my wife, so two player is a must.
3. No player vs player combat.

I’ve been more and more interested in games with a strong narrative and/or campaign. The problem is my wife loves strategizing, and many of these kinds of games feel like they are “on rails” to her. So if you’ve got something with narrative depth and strong player agency, that would be cool.

Clearly the Hadara little promo cards ! It's a game we like for it's good euro vibe in a quick and easy to share format.



What are you looking for in a game?

I tend to love medium to medium-heavy euro games. I love when the game is elegant, meaning simple rules but that leads to a deep game.

I love worker placements, engine building and especially when the game gives you hard agonizing decisions.

Any suggestions ?

Terra Mystica just scratches a lot of the itches for me.
I haven't had a chance to try Gaia Project yet. I don't know if it would replace good old TM.

The most interesting things on the trade list for me are Civilization and Advanced Civilization.

I remember seeing a copy of Civilization in my friend's attic way back in the 90s and never getting around to playing it, as it would have probably been an all-day affair.

What I'm looking for in a game right now is hard to quantify. I love games with RPG or Campaign elements, but I also love thinky economic or empire management.
I've got a backlog of games to work through at the moment. Anything new that comes in the door probably has to be a "classic", one that has got staying power enough to stick around for years and years.

I don't know about being my favorite game, but Formula D is the game I am definitely missing at the moment. We only ever play this with 8-10 players, and of course that just hasn't been happening lately.

Support for 6+ players. Occasionally we only have 5 players, but those excellent 2-4 player games never seem to hit the table.
A maximum of 2 hours "real" playing time. My group likes to socialize, so games described as "120 minutes" are often much longer than that.
Easy to learn/teach. Spending the bulk of our session figuring out how to play a game that won't be seen again for several months never goes over well.

Shadows over Camelot - it seems like a cool game

What are you looking for in a game?
(The more specific you are here, the better answers you will get!)

Co-op of sort, or a very quick and simple game play. The people I play with are not hardcore gamers, so co-op allows me to bring complex games to the table cause you work together, and lighter games like the insider allow me to bring new games to the table cause they are simple and quick
