Games you own that don't see playtime?

Compare it to the game you have on Steam, Xbox, Playstation that you own because you maybe got it at a good price or it looked cool to you. Do you have any games in your collection that you just can't seem to get around to playing. Why?

At the moment for me most of mine are still new and fresh but my first game "modern" game I bought #Lost Cities hasn't touched the table in months even though I still like the game. Other games just have a stronger pull to get put onto the table.

#The Fox in the Forest because my wife doesn't like it :/

Aside from that, party games are obviously not coming out right now, and honestly our groups don't enjoy those too much anyway.

My wife didn't really care for #The Fox in the Forest either. Before we got married, I'm sure she woulld have thought it was a great little game. But she found it too simple. I feel bad, because I liked it enough, so I thought she would have liked it more.

Permission to also join the "My SO Doesn't Like #The Fox in the Forest Club." Game is a little bit too confrontational and kind of designed around making your opponent constantly second guess their own plays.

Lol, join us! But now the club is too big and we can't actually play #The Fox in the Forest anymore...

We need a three-player variant haha

Dang, that's a bummer. It is fairly simple, but I feel like the strategy could actually get quite deep if both players are familiar with the game and have played a few times. I just haven't gotten to that point yet, and I doubt I will. This one is unfortunately on my trade list, because I don't often play 2-player only games with someone other than my wife.

The strategy can get pretty deep when your playing with people over and over and both have a good grasp of strategy.  It remains one of my favorite 2 player games with people who know it.

sigh...maybe eventually she'll get into it with me, haha

Have you looked into #The Fox in the Forest Duet which is more of a co-op and might be more her speed.  Maybe once you get use to that, you can go to the competive version or get rid of it without any guilt.  The Brother Murph love the Duet version.

Yeah I've thought about it, but we generally don't go for co-ops, so it's sort of a tough sell, aside from the price. "Hey you know this game you don't like? Here's a co-op version, even though you don't like co-ops." I may pick it up one day on a whim, we'll see.

Yeah in that case both games may not be right for the two of you.  Good thing there are 1000's of other games out there waiting to be explored and discovered.

Haha yeah. No reason to get too upset over one that doesn't work.

That is a travesty, what a beautiful little card game. Shame it doesn't work for her.

Was thinking the same thing! has really sold me on this game talking about it on his pod as a game I really think Sarah will enjoy. Hearing your wife doesn't like it makes me less hopeful. Why do you think that is ?

50 days ago

Not really sure. It was her first trick-taking game, so it could be that she doesn't have a great grasp of how trick taking games work. I guess I wouldn't recommend it as a first trick-taking game.

It's weird how hard trick taking games can be for people. It must be because I play games so often the mechanisms just come easier to me..shrug

50 days ago

Yeah I mean I think the more mechanisms you're exposed to, the higher your threshold is for learning a new one.

Most likely. Everyone I've taught the Crew to has struggled with the concept..

And they're all what I would consider to be less "gamer-y" than I. So you may be onto something

Trick taking is definitely one of the weirder ones to get your head around, being pretty abstract. It also doesn't help that it's dependent on secret information - you don't know what everyone has in their hands, but they're still supposed to follow the rules - so it's harder to watch and make sure people are understanding and doing it right.

Yeah, I find if people didn't play card games growing up (sevens, hearts etc.) it can be a real learning curve. 

49 days ago

Yeah that makes sense. I didn't play many trick taking games with people growing up, but I played #Hearts on Windows XP a fair amount lol

48 days ago

Haha, good old Windows games, for when someone needed to use the phone!

We played endless cards growing up courtesy of camping holidays

Lol...oh dial-up.

We played lots of #UNO on family trips. I think we played #Spades a few times, but I'm not sure why my parents didn't push us to play those types of games more than Uno or something along those lines. Spades is a much better game, haha

I think spades is similar to bidding wist or bridge right? Card games usually have about 20 different names depending on who you ask!

Lol I don't know, but you do have to bid
