At the Gates of Loyang is a game about getting vegetables and exchanging them for other vegetables and then exchanging those vegetable for money which is used to buy points. That should be explanation enough for why I hate it. But it isn't.
Because I like Lords of Waterdeep which is a game about getting cubes and turning them into points.
I also like The Village, which is about getting cubes and turning them into farming equipment, and then turning the farming equipment into money, or maybe into wheat to use to bribe your way up in the Church hierarchy. Or maybe turning horses into a ride to another town. Anyway, it's another game about farming and turn stuff into other stuff.
I also like chocolate. But I don't like Hershey's chocolate. I once told KingPut that I didn't like Hershey's chocolate, and told me that I didn't like it because it has a sour milk after taste. He knows about these things. So now instead of just saying, "I hare Hershey's chocolate," I can say, "I hate Hershey's chocolate because it tastes like sour milk." I don't know how helpful it is to know this, but it does make me feel better when I do know why I don't like something. I would like to say that it made me feel less confused knowing why I like some chocolate but not others, however knowing that Hershey's chocolate tastes like sour milk is actually more bewildering than not knowing. I assumed that people wouldn't like the taste of sour milk, but I guess I'm wrong. I guess a lot of people actually like the taste of sour milk, considering how many people like Hershey's chocolate.
Until someone can tell me why I hate At the Gates of Loyang, but like Lords of Waterdeep and The Village, I'm just have to settle for saying, "I dislike The Gates of Loyang because it tastes like sour milk."
