That was crazy hard. Crazy hard.

Ridiculous. I had to take the list, look up each one I didn't know about and then work by process of elimination. Of course, I had to eliminate 4 or 5 I was interested in just to whittle it down to...

1st (also known as possibly intense 90 minute games that seem very similar, all of which I'd like to try)
++++
Amun Re
Euphrat & Tigris
Princes of Florence

2nd (also known as 60 minute games)
++++
Attika
Dungeoneer

3rd (60 minute or less, lighter fare)
++++
Atlantic Star
Who Stole Ed's Pants
Filthy Rich

Filler (all look like a hoot!)
++++
Guillotine
Gloom
Pit

fyi - Gloom isn't a filler

guess the definition of filler hasn't been established yet, as I'd have to agree with April on Gloom being more a filler game from the description on BG. smile

That depends on yer definition of filler.

If a filler is a game that is played fairly quickly (20 mins or less) then no, Gloom is not a filler.

If a filler is a light game that doesnt require a lot of horsepower, then yes, Gloom is a filler.

Guillotine fits both definitions as a filler. biggrin

**Edit**
Both the above mentioned games are a lot of fun. I bought Guillotine Saturday and have since played prolly close to a dozen games. Its fast, fun, and easy. Kevin would hate it. Gloom is a riot too, but only if you enjoy "take that" games. Its fun and easy (not fast tho--with 4 figure 40 minutes or so). Kevin would hate it. wink
