Most gamers have one game they really want, but consider too expensive and can't justify buying. What AT gamer didn't want a copy of Space Hulk (third edition) or Twilight Imperium (Third Edition) when it came out, and what ancients wargamer without SPQR (Deluxe Edition) can't live without it but considers it too expensive? Not that Eurogamers are immune from this syndrome either-judging from the talk about Glory for Rome, you'd think some of them might actually start foaming at the mouth for a reprint so they didn't have to spend $60+ for it.

Well, I can't get you whatever game this is for you, but I can get you some for talking about it. To enter this contest, just post any game that is available in New condition online for $100 or less and thumbsup the Geeklist. I don't really want to impose this limit, but otherwise whoever first posted War of the Ring Collector's Edition would win going away. So here is the I'm giving out:

10 to the game that gets the most thumbsup's
1 + however much is tipped to the list to a random person who thumbsup's this list.


If you really want to help a game out, just click on the little at the end of this post, and choose the last option, Other Amount with Message. Specify in the message what game you'd like to vote for. For every .10 you tip, I'll add a thumbsup in the final tally. Just 5 makes a 50 vote difference! Plus, I'll take half the GG and give it to a random person who thumbsup'd that item.

Winners:
The winner of 10 GG, with 39 votes,

I want this game so bad. But it's $70 retail (so still a clean $46 online) and I doubt anyone will play it with me (particularly with the time required).

I'll probably buy it anyway. It's just a matter of time.

Seems like a good game for the whole family, which for me includes kids ranging from 20 to 6...just a bit spendy to get on a whim, though (like most of my gaming purchases).

I really want this game, mainly because a lot of the games I like are recommended games for McMulti, and vice versa.

But with the high prices it's going for, I'll wait.

Now just one of these games might not break the bank, but the designer has a 4 person variant that you can use 2 games. A luxury I just can't see doing, but none the less I'd love 2 copies.

Memoir is an amazingly good game. I've been playing it for years with my live-in s.o., and she loves it. Now, she does not really like war games, so that's saying something.

Here's the rub: I know I will love this game, but I also know that I'll have a really hard time getting to play it. I have Starcraft, Twilight Imperium, Axis and Allies, Titan and a bevy of other games just gathering dusk on my shelves.

So, do I get the game knowing I won't regret the purchase but I'll be saddened by how unfrequently if at all I get to play this? Or do I pass on it so I'll have one fewer box cover staring eagerly at me in my office?

Maybe some of you can help me decide?

This one is high on the list of any classic board game collector and not just because it is rare and goes for a premium price on Ebay. It features luminescence from the 1960s. The board and the artwork are awesome. It's the game you play in the dark! 'nuff said!

I don't even know how much this game costs, but I have read so many great things about this game and I know that I want it, but it is no where to found here - in Estonia. I was able to get War Of The Ring, Twilight Imperium and some other games when I had money, but know I have to serve in army for some time and I have no other ways than BGG to get this game. I have tried to get this on G4GG lotteries, but without luck so far...

Sigh. I'd love to get this game. It retails for somewhere around $75-$90, although online it's currently sitting at $60, but I know all I'd be able to do would break out all the pieces, drool, and then unsuccessfully beg people to play it with me. No wargamers in my life means no cool wargames.

Toss in any of the expansions and the price begins to get REALLY out of hand.

Galaxy Trucker plus The Big Expansion go for a little under $100 online. This game seems exciting, fascinating, and different from everything else.

I hope I'll get to try it out sometime soon.

I can get this online for $96.99 Canadian. That is a LOT of bucks! I don't imagine this will get many thumbs if it is not already on this list but other than Star Wars: The Queen's Gambit, which is definitely over $100 and NOT new, this is the one I would first think of.

20+ years for the reprint, My original set is in terrible condition but $70 retail for a game that I might get to the table once a year when I already own a playable set is a bit much. But the set is sooooo much nicer.
