My gaming group has a pretty good combined collection of stuff, so it isn't always easy getting a new game to the table, but I keep wanting to buy games (bought two this week). There are games I still haven't even gotten to play yet. It got me wondering how many games everyone has that have not made it to the table? I have 7.

Axis and Allies (have played, but have never logged)
Hanabi (same as above, never logged)
Sushi Go Party! (just got this one, I've played the original)
Innovation (bought in an auction, haven't learned yet. Still like Glory to Rome so much I haven't brought it to the table)
Medici (got this as a gift, haven't played it yet)
Phase 10 ('nuff said)


Only 5 (totally not counting Phase 10), actually my highest in awhile as I've got several new games. I try to keep all of my games played if I can help it.

Like 70.

It's not a good idea, it's just how things are.

Check out Clockwork Wars. It's a pretty darn good dudes on a hex map Euro'ish steampunk game. Quick and fun.

42.

Weird, it's also the answer to life, the universe and everything. Which makes me think that maybe now I can only play one of them if I buy a new game so that my number of unplayed games always stays at 42.

Pretty much this. I attribute it to a few things. Sales make ammassing games easy(Im sitting on a sealed $10 copy of Homeland for example). If I have game gatherings with my real friends, who aren't really into the hobby, I can only get certain games to the table. They often say they don't want to learn anything new, despite games taking 5 minutes to explain. If I go to local open game nights at FLGS's, you usually end up with people who insist of playing their new games or their style of game. Since I am just happy to play anything I just go with it. I bring a bag of 7-10 games a week to game meetings and am lucky to play 1 a month. I'm also a painter, so there are a few games I own knowing I will probably never find people to play with, but am happy to paint when I find the time. In the end I am just happy to play as much as I can, and have hopes of one day finding a group I can play the unused games with.

At least 150, maybe 200. Most of them are 2 to 5 player games that don't work well with our 6 person game group. We play something new whenever we have a no show, but that's very infrequent.

16.

About 5% of the collection, although some of these are things that I acquired without the intention to ever play them, and they're sitting in a box marked 'games for trade'.

My collection stats say about 100....BUT at least 65 of those are expansions or promo cards that are integrated into the main game and may or may not have been at least partially played.

8 Games:

Tichu
Dark Moon (though I have played BSG express)
Mogul
Carson City Big Box
Staufer Dynasty
Fungi
Team Play
Castellion

It's embarrassing how long I've had Tichu without playing it. Especially considering I own more than one copy (RGG and uplay.it). It's usually hard for me to get 4 and when I do, I try to get longer games played.

Maybe about 10, mostly the ones that aren't solo-able and can't find players for, but were interesting bargains at the time that passed the research due diligence so were too good to pass up.

3 but they are all newish (acquired in the last 4 months).

I planned to get one played next weekend. The other 2 hopefully over the next couple of months.

I try not to buy too many new games now until I've had a chance to play ones I already own. My next goal will be getting more than one play of a lot of my games though.

Just one, but I'm not diligent about logging plays, so it probably looks like more on my profile page. At the very least, I almost always solo play every new game I get.

I just counted up 135 games in my collection that I own and have not played. I'll get around to most of them sooner or later. Or so I tell myself, anyway. I've got a bookcase a couple feet away from me that has ~700 Xbox 360 games sitting on its shelves and a couple hundred of those are in my backlog. I keep telling myself I'll get around to those as well. So who knows?

I will admit that although I have been trying to get new games to the table that some people have been resistant to change or broadening their horizons.

That is why I have 200+ unplayed games. Some of them may not be worth playing- I am a sucker for getting something due to cool components.

Five.

La Granja
Fields of Arle
Taluva
Colt Express
Harbour

La Granja I have had for more than 6 months. The others for less than 2 months.

Then I have some that I haven't played since I started logging plays in January 2014.
