My worst of 2008...

Worst rating: 3.34
Bionicle: Quest For The Masks CCG by LEGO
Board Game: Bionicle: Quest For The Masks CCG

From the bargain bins, I grabbed shrinked sets 1, 2 and 3 for €1 each at the Spellenspektakel game fair. Being a Lego fan I was intrigued and thought I'd take a gamble. I fear getting these out of their shrinkwraps because it could confirm the bad rating.

Worst value for Money: 4.25/€0.70
Weakest Link by Hasbro/Parker Brothers
Board Game: Weakest Link

Dear Ann Robinson, so snappy in an endearing way. Couldn't leave it at the price of under one euro especially because she stared me into transporting it to the register and out the thrifty's doors. But now it will never get played -I covered the stare!-, no-play = a waste of money.

Worst state: Unplayable State
Secret Square by University Games
Board Game: Secret Square

Not bad of a state by the looks of it... But wait... The stickers were applied on the wrong side of the tiles! They are on the depressed instead of the flat side and chips can not be hidden under them. Now the game is unplayable and I'm not looking forward to removing and reapplying stickers that won't come off easy/whole in the first place.
