Game of Thrones, Root, Everdell, Scythe, Wingspan, Terraforming Mars, Spirit Island, Dinogenics. I also always tend to get collector or premium editions, so even my games without expansions are more "complete" than they otherwise would have been.

Final Thoughts. Terraforming Mars is fantastic. It’s rare to find a game with smooth mechanisms that ties an interesting theme tightly with gameplay

Terraforming Mars. After generation 5 you could tell who had drafted the best combination of cards and it just dragged from that point on. I found it to lack zero tension when tallying up points at end game for the most part.

Why Is Terraforming Mars So Popular? A Pseudo-Review - The Thoughtful Gamer
It’s not uncommon for relatively low interaction games to find their teeth as players get better at them. Once you’ve mastered the efficiency puzzle what else is there to combat other than the other players? But every bit of Terraforming Mars tells players that this is a friendly game of scientific exploration and cooperation (in the terraforming at least). Combined with the massive stack of cards one should become familiar with in order to become competitive I can’t see many people reaching that stage

I think they fixed it in an expansion, but the income/resource trackers in Terraforming Mars drive me insane. Way too easy to accidentally bump and fuck up.

I almost bought several of these within the last week and have been waiting for a sale on some of the others like Terraforming Mars. I'm glad I waited. This is perfect.

Terraforming Mars was a game that I dreaded to learn because of all the steps in a turn and all the cards to learn. After one game I got the hang of it. But when my friend taught me they basically just said to learn as you go.
