Most people want to stick their head in the sand and ignore problems, in an effort to avoid conflict. I refuse to be that passive person. Problems are there to be fixed, which means that first they have to identified. Denial is not just a river in Egypt.

We ended up with 8, but we're playing our annual game again on Monday, so we'll see what happens. I'll let you know if we do.

comment Beginner Power Grid strategy
@Chris, you have to take some chances, it's easier to pull off the more players there are. While your bid may only raise it one electro, if you make it seem like it's a worthwhile investment, then it may motivate others to bid higher on it.

comment One vs Many board games
The real problem comes from a vague definition of what questions are acceptable. We allow recommendation questions, but then it seems to be randomly decided which ones remain. Like the commenter in Meta who mentioned the travel games question, that one was way more broad than this question was. I'm not sure why the OP needed to change this question from a recommendation question to a information/research question. I would have been fine with everything becoming community wiki, but I thought he was asking for a good specific niche (unlike something like 'all multiplayer games').
