Star Wars: The Card Game, a game that failed to draw my love for the Magic card game.

I just bought Le Havre, but I don’t know if I’m going to get enough time to play it for a review.

Just need too more reviews of Le Havre.

I would review it myself, but unfortunately, like too many games, it is not available on Android.

Enjoying this rare moment where the game needing the review already has my review. 🙂 I demo’d Buffalo at GenCon this year – a lot of fun! Also played Catan Junior – great quality, just not as much fun to play with adults – found myself in inescapable holes due to die rolls. Dungeon roll is almost better solo or with only one other person to keep you honest. Then have a mini-tourney with quests/goals.

Need one more review on Buffalo and 2 more on Le Havre. Le Havre is at a bigger disadvantage having no online rules.

There really is a lack of reviews on Le Havre.

Anybody with experience in these under-reviewed games could cash in on a lot of traffic if they submitted some content as soon as possible!

There’s still not enough reviews on Le Havre. 🙁
It sounds pretty cool too. I didn’t like Agricola and it seems this game got rid of what I couldn’t appreciate. I’m gonna have to give it a shot sometime soon.

Now I just need someone else to review Star Wars since mine is one of the three reviews already there. 🙁

I wondered why the ratings on my review for Star Wars: the Card Game suddenly shot up. Now it makes a lot more sense.

Anyway, like @cody.raak, I love the exploration aspect of the site. It’s helped me find some great games that I otherwise would have skipped or had already dismissed for various reasons.

I love exploring games on this site. Helpful reviews, insightful comments. I appreciate that these games have pictures with their descriptions, that’s always helpful. This is a great way to present a batch of “Explorable Favorites,” by having the highly-rated, newer games in different categories, but it’s interesting that these games, while being highly rated, are under-reviewed, under-played, and not very “explorable.” Fun-strating.

Not enough comments on a few of these games. One more game and I’ll get Old Bones, so hopefully someone adds enough comments to push me over the edge. Do it for me!
