The Club Library - time for a little change

Post  psychomansam on Fri 06 May 2016, 17:09

The club has a small library of games. We have some plans for making these games more available for when people would like to play them - including trying to store some somewhere more useful and advertising them more actively.

As part of this, we're also taking a look at what games are worthwhile keeping and which ones we could sell and replace with more useful games.

Some positive criteria would include:
accessible to newcomers
range of playing times including fillers / quick games
easily playable in an evening session
multiple player counts e.g. 2-5 players
durable
appealing to a wide range of people at the club
high replayability - lasting appeal
not apparently discriminatory


Of course one of the most important things is also that people in the club actually want to play the games we have in our library. So it would be really helpful if you could please list any games below which you would personally like to play this year from the club library. If you don't speak up, they might well disappear.
Just to clarify, right here we're just trying to usefully measure what people will actually play. So please don't offer hypotheticals, negative comments e.g. which ones you don't personally like, or discuss other games. I'll start another thread on new games people would like in the library - but this isn't the place for that discussion. Fire away people!

Castle Ravenloft - Enter the crypts, steal the treasure and stop the evil lord Strahd - Dungeon bashing for 1 to 5
Kingsburg - Defend the kingdom from monstorous attack!
Fzzzt - Be a mechanic and collect crazy robots from a crackpot factory
Coloseum - Be an entrepreneur in ancient Rome and put on the greatest show.
Imperial 2030 - Manipulate the world super powers to make the biggest buck - for 2 to 6 players
CO2- Saving the environment or some other bollocks
Cargo - Load your ship with as many goods as you can while scuppering your opponants.
Dust - Global domination is the goal. High-tech weaponry! Huge armies. Let the mayhem begin.
Small World - Fantasy tribes fighting for survival
Navia Dratp - Fantasy chess-like game with collectable figures
Merchants and Marauders - Trade or raid on the Caribbean sea - 2 - 4 players
MIL (1049)- Your family struggles for prestige and influence in a medieval society. Will you succeed? 2 - 4 players
Game of Thrones - Fight for the Iron Throne in Westeros - 3 - 6 players
Ankhmorpork - Lord Vetinari is missing!!  So who's going to run the city - you? - for 2 to 4 players
Formula D! - Formula 1 and street racing. An update of an old classic with up to 10 players
Zombies - brains!!!!!
Airlines Europe - Share dealing in the airline business
Agricola - 17th Century - Not an easy time for farming
Agricola: Farmers of the Moor Expansion - Peat bogs and keeping your workers warm...

I'd like to play:
Agricola - 17th Century - Not an easy time for farming
Agricola: Farmers of the Moor Expansion - Peat bogs and keeping your workers warm...
Formula D! - Formula 1 and street racing. An update of an old classic with up to 10 players
Kingsburg - Defend the kingdom from monstorous attack!
Coloseum - Be an entrepreneur in ancient Rome and put on the greatest show.
Merchants and Marauders - Trade or raid on the Caribbean sea - 2 - 4 players

Notice how I'm being constructive and not confusing matters by telling you which ones I own and thus don't want in the club library or which ones I hate. Let's hope Aneurin can do the same Laughing

Agricola, Game of Thrones and Coliseum are all tremendous and I'll play them any time with anyone.

Small world is fun.

CO2 is a meaty, complex thing that hasn't been played very much but is worthy of more table time.
