I own 3 of those on your Shelf of Shame: Founders of Gloomhaven, Rise of Tribes, and Dinogenics.
I have played all of them. Founders of Gloomhaven is fun in the beginning, but both my sister and I get confused and frustrated when building 3 tier buildings. You have to backtrack through 2 other layers of buildings to figure out how to properly split the points for the Tier 3 buildings, which often leads to math debates. While I love the concept of the game, I just wished it was easier to figure out the math part. We could handle the Tier 2 math ok, just its too much for Tier 3.
Dinogenics I played twice. Liked it. But my sister added Dinosaur Island to our 10x10 challenge this year, so when we play a dinosaur theme game, Dinogeics is overlooked for now. So much so, that I passed on buying its expansion. I do plan to get back to playing Dinogenics, but we have to complete the DI 10 plays first.
Rise of Tribes I love. Another game on our 10x10 Challenge. Its been very successful when I take it to Gaming Meetups. I think I need to only play it 2 more times this year to finish its part in the challenge.
I won't admit how many games on on my own shelf...but it has been growing lately with new Kickstarters coming in.
