It's true that Wizards of the Coast is making a new game called Dungeon Command: Sting of Lolth, but I'll still miss the waves of new sets, with large varieties of different miniatures.

While it probably isn't my favorite OOP game, Attika is my most recent "Oooh I like this" game that turned into "What? it is not in print anymore?"

Fortunately it isn't that hard to come by for a decent price and I traded for a copy so don't even need to worry about that.

While Up Front is by far my favorite oop game, I thought I would add a lesser known game that I really enjoy. Industrial WasteIMO is a really neat, relatively simple euro game that involves managing a factory. You basically maximize your profits by imcreasing efficiency and reducing overhead, while at the same time you have to keep an eye on your waste build up. Very fun and quite underrated

Not exactly obscure, but this is my answer. I love this game, and I feel bad for all the folks out there who want it and can't get a copy for a reasonable price. Sadly it appears it will never come back into print especially since they passed up the perfect opportunity with the release of Episode I in 3-D.

This is one of my family's favorite games and is easily my number one game to suggest to friends with young children... Or at least it used to be. Prices now have risen to crazy levels.

The fact that adults can play to their FULL ability and still lose resoundingly to kids, how fierce the tension can be, and how much laughter can be had when Mom/Dad finds it extremely hard to pull out that big blue egg while the youngest quickly and easily pulls out a tiny little yellow egg... This is such an excellent game to play with kids and really needs to be reprinted.

I love finding obscure and OOP games to play. My gaming buddies seem to enjoy them, too.

The Harry Potter Trading Card Game is the current front runner. Even some of the greatest of Potter fans and gaming enthusiasts have no idea this exists. I love the looks of shock when I play this one around new people.

Other contenders include:

Loopin' Louie (1992 full sized)
Sherlock Holmes: The Card Game (Thanks ebay U.K.!) and
Heimlich & Co. (Ravensburger)
