Nations plays pretty well solitaire, btw, so you might give that a try. It doesn't sound as dry as Historia.

I had quite a bit more fun with Historia than you did but...

I think it really says something when you can reduce the entire process of the game to a deck of six randomly drawn cards...and the game can beat you.


...is what killed it for me too. After something like that the entire game concept loses its luster. The bummer is that the game is maybe one or two good ideas from being really solid.

Sometimes I feel like Imperial Settlers should just be 4 rounds. That 5th round is as long as rounds 1-3 on its own. Maybe even all 4. Ugh.

That was my main criticism back when it came out Jexik, really needs to have a round cut from it.

Frontline: D-day was a game I purchased right when it came out and one which ultimately disappointed me. There's neat things in it but it has some weird flaws and wasn't particularly gripping for me.
