Why is there no Word Games Forum or Subdomain?

There should be a Word Games Subdomain, or at least a Word Games Forum!

Hmmm... restricted to ones on my shelf ... well...

I'd want it to be one without and danger, so Memoir '44 is out, and so is Nuclear War and Civ, and Awful Green Things from Outer Space, and HellRail and several others. That narrows it down quite a bit.

Filthy Rich? No. Just because that's the name of the game, doesn't mean I'd *be* filthy rich. And those businesses seem a bit sketchy.

Gric? Carc? Catan? Nah. Too much work.

What does it mean to be "inside" Apples to Apples? Or Wits & Wagers? Or Xactica? Or Quiddler? etc.

Well, from inside Twixt, I can be assured victory and escape - just knock off my opponent's connection at an opportune moment for the win.

3M version. Local thrift - $6.

Very nice shape (minus some box wear inflicted removing thrift store tape).

Had not previously owned this one, so will give it a go.

The first game I knew of with the author's name on it. My uncle, who is a buff for good-looking abstract games, bought this in the USA and brought it back to Norway. It opened my eyes for a world of games beyond Monopoly.

This one goes to the first person to comment who successfully wins another game in this auction and selects local pickup outside of GenCon. (A little bonus for those who checked out the 2nd page of this auction)

*You only get one freebie game unless no one else claims them.

Haven't been thrifting for a while. $1.99 at Delta Goodwill. Overall good condition. The tape they use is really irritating. Older boxes really get torn up with the stuff they use. Grrr.

Condition: Good

Bought used. The game page on BGG says there should be about 50 each of the 4 different pieces, and there are between 49 and 51 of each. Noticable age on the box, but overall in good condition. 3M English black bookcase edition (1962) - I think.

Soft Reserve: $5

Condition: Very Good. This is the 3M Tan Bookcase Edition from 1962.

The box has some very minor shelf wear to it (corners have some wear, the back image of the box sleeve has a few minor scratches). The one exception is on the case for the pieces where there is a lager scuff (see picture).

Components are all counted and present. The pegs and wrenches are still stored in their original packaging (opened, not sealed, but present). I have counted and there are 50 of each (red pegs, red wrenches, black pegs, and black wrenches). The board has been taped together so that it quad folds (see pictures). This could be easily removed without doing any damage as the board is plastic.

Not the edition shown but a bookshelf version from the 70s. Has a regular two part box, as opposed to the slipcase. Sun faded front/side but in decent shape otherwise. Appears to be complete. The biggest surprise though was that I found it a the local Goodwill that never has anything interesting. Two bucks.

Next to the first Twixt was this tan box. Also in good condition. $1.99 @ GW. Will be giving both away to family who surprisingly haven't asked me for copies before.

Found a copy of the fat box version of Twixt at my VV for $1.99. The box is really trashed but I couldn't leave such a rarity behind, especially at that price.

This is a game I really want to like and be good at, but it just misses with me somehow. Perhaps one day it will simply click and I'll be off to the races, like Lines of Action did recently.

Avalon Hill edition from Goodwill for $2.99.

Was pretty excited to open the box and see that this game is unplayed! All the plastic pegs are still sealed in original plastic bags. The box has some storage wear, but still a neat find.
