Too simple and too complex really do it for me.
Beer and pretzel games have their place but they are not usually trying to a serious simulation. Plus, what's the fun in trying to play a game that is worse than doing your taxes.

The games I enjoy the most are realistic in how the battle played out but did not burden anyone with tons of die rolling and chart checking. Plus you can finish a game in 4 hours.

POLL DESCRIPTION

Personal logo etotheipi Sponsoring Member of TMP says:

What makes you say "Never again!" to a game?

For this discussion, "a game" is a set of rules and does not include player behavior, referee foibles, a horrible venue experience, the fact that you had to put your cat down for advanced lung cancer last night, or ineffective artifacts (figures, terrain, randomizers)… though poor design on how artifacts are used would be, well, fair game.

Poll set up by Personal logo Editor in Chief Bill The Editor of TMP Fezian, based on this pre-poll discussion.
