The thing about collection boardgames is that you'll never have enough :). I don't really return any games, cause I always think I will play them again and might like them in the end. For example, I bought Smallworld and I really didn't like it. I still don't, but you never know :) And getting rid of games is so hard :D #emotional. I don't really have a budget for my boardgames though, whenever I see an interesting game, i just buy it. If it is more than 20USD, I go to youtube and decide to buy it or not.

Does it count if I've done this with Kickstarters many times?
Quite a few times I've pledged for game X then realized that:
As usual, if you like Kickstarter this is nothing against you. I just find it doesn't work for me.

Oh that definitely counts, and I'm sure a lot of the splurging happens through KS haha. It's like looking at a very well-polished ad that is still attractive because of the human factor put in.

Was there a particular game you backed and received that you ended up regretting/feeling like it wasn't worth it?

I did pretty good in that I didn't get any real stinkers. I got a couple of mediocre ones but nothing I regretted.

I don't regret buying it but I do think I'll sell Dice Throne: Season 2 - Gunslinger vs. Samurai now just after 1 play. It didn't really capture my interest.
Reviews seemed pretty split on it. A lot of the cons I read were related to how it's very RNG/dice luck dependent and that the choice of which player you could attack was dependent on the dice as well. Haven't played the game myself so I wouldn't know if that's true.
We could play it sometime but it feels like a mashup of Magic the Gathering and Last Stand. I'd rather just play one of those games, haha.
When it comes to fighting games I did appreciate the simplicity behind Ultimate Fighters: Creatures of Titan. I think it does well what it was meant to do.
Let's play it on our next game night. I think you'll really like the updates by the way.

I've bought dozens of games that I never played and then sold. I owned Through the Ages twice I think. I like the game, but in the two times I played it (not my copy) we didn't even finish because people were to burnt out to finish it.
We talk about board games here. Games like Codenames, Catan, Root, and all your favorites. Posts can link diretly to games and everyone is welcome to join the discussion.
