Seriously, it's like a conspiracy. I'd like to try dipping my toes into the pool of grognard-dom (well, you know, after they clean it), but every time I find a game that sounds interesting, it's O.O.P. Sometimes for, eh, decades.

I'm sure there are many geeks out there who can sympathize with my plight on this one, if eBay prices are any indication...

Double blind tactical urban warfare. This one sounds INTENSE. Pity I'll never get to find out

The Gauls' off-board setup sounds interesting and probably also makes for plenty of tense moments.

I used to be a pretty avid RPG player. This solitaire game sounds like it would scratch that itch.

Became interested in this game (and era of history) after reading a geeklist about it:

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist.php3?action=view&listi...

And playing it'd be an excuse to shell out for some pretty minis...

While not exclusively a wargame, here's another AH game of yore I'd love to get to play sometime.

*Drool*

Athens vs. Sparta.
Big beautiful map.
Lots of little wooden blocks.

Situation here is a little different since this one isn't out of print, but has yet to be published.

My S.O.'s Stepfather is a Revolutionary War buff. I figure playing this game could be a valuable learning opportunity.

Another that hasn't been printed yet.

This is one game on this list that might actually buck the trend, since it's recently been liberated from P1250 limbo.
