Yeah, this persuasion aspect is also a consideration for me. I cater to a lot of non-hobby gamers. Higher quality components help with getting them interested.

Tiny Towns is a lot of fun. Agree with this assessment. If you like spatial puzzles, it's worth checking out.

I can't remember whether any "conflict" in the gameplay was an issue for me. It's kind of automatic when it comes to area control type games anyway, and there are others of those that I enjoy.

Also, I'm aware of the shorter play time versions that are available now. I'm open to trying one of those if the situation presents, but I'm not seeking them out.

It's been a couple years since I played, I just remember it being really boring and taking too long for what it is, and not being excited about the successive plays my friends wanted to do.

#Pandemic pairs nicely with Corona (player's choice on Extra or Light)

A game everyone else seems to like that I don't: #Ticket To Ride

To start over, for me, would involve a lot of the same decision making, so I can't see changing too many of my early purchases beyond opting for newer iterations/equivalents that may have come out since then. That said, I could see games that weren't around at the time, such as #The Crew: The Quest for Planet Nine or #The Quacks of Quedlinburg as likely being added to the list of early buys today.

As far as hard to find games:
#Glory To Rome
#Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game
#Tales of the Arabian Nights

Looks like pineapples are imports IRL.

I don't mind when games have a small element of luck to them, particularly as you've described. It's truer to life that way.

Agree about the artwork. Watching reviews on the gameplay sparked my interest, but this edition appealed to me more than its drier-looking twin.

Haha, yeah, that's what I was going for

Sadly, #Century: Golem Edition is on my shelf of shame. I feel like if I could get that initial play in, it could become a regular option for one of my gaming groups.

These are fair guesses. I probably abstracted too much here. Less emphasis on the literal racing aspect, and there's no team play, but you do have helpers in the gameplay... and it might be useful if those wheelbarrows had some pineapples.

This list tracks for me. These games typically end up on the table when the player count hits 5 (or a little more):

 

Yeah, another easy one :)

Nice. It's a favorite among my non-hobby gamer friends.

Fun! I like this idea of matching games to GIFs. Here's an easy one...


I went with Cats over Barenpark due to theme and its various play modes (can't offer playing feedback yet because of 2020 life [nope, haven't tried solo yet either])... Although, Barenpark still looks very interesting and gets a lot of praise, so this could make the "to purchase" list in the future... So, for me, on this particular pair, it might turn out to have been a comparison for the sake of "which one to buy first?" rather than an either-or situation, which happens.

Hello and welcome :)

Based on what's been described, maybe take a look at the upcoming #Sleeping Gods and #Roll Player Adventures to add to your wishlist. Note that neither of these are in retail yet, but they both seem like they could satisfy your game play preferences.

Congrats to the winners! 

Bummer. I was hoping it would hit retail by end of November. Thanks for the update!

I watched all kinds of videos for #Raiders of the North Sea and #Architects of the West Kingdom tyring to decide between the two. Ended up getting both :)

Some other match-ups I've known people to compare are:
