Somebody wondered how I got an avatar after only a week (and I am over half-way to a badge), so this list was inspired by my experience joining the list and cataloging my collection. I have almost 60 games (not counting books and Monopoly/Trivial Pursuit variations) which are owned by 20 or fewer members (including myself). 26 are owned by five or fewer and I have already added four games (and a couple of books), along with the first pictures for all of those and six other games which were in the database without pictures.

Now here are some of those games that few of you have and some comments about them or how I came to get them.

Feel free to add some more. But remember, no more than 20 people owning the game according to the database.

A 1960 game based on the TV series (with Leslie Nielson when he was serious), this has been "my" game since it was new, back when I was 8. I remember playing it back then, but haven't really examined it for a while. It was not in the database, but now has another owner as well.

A slightly more common game, but I was surprised it was below 15 owners. This is probably my introduction to abstract strategy games, also back when it was new. Haven't played it for a long time. If I want that kind of game, I would play Twixt, any way.

Inherited from my mom, I think, I did use this some in high school and before. I played a lot of rubber bridge in the late seventies at lunch time at my first job out of school, and even played duplicate a few times. I no longer have bridge players around most of the time (my wife doesn't play), so haven't played in quite a while.

I was surprised to find this 3M bookshelf game on the list, although I will admit that I bought it only because of completeness. In high school, a bunch of my friends used to get together to play 3M bookshelf games, even keeping running W-L records, etc. One of the highlights was always when the new game came out. This was after we were off to college, but I kept buying them. I never owned their versions of the classic games (chess, go, bridge), but got all the others.

In the seventies, I started collecting baseball replay games. A couple of those games are in this list, along with some later baseball sims. This appears to be the rarest of them. APBA is my main baseball game, playing it continuously and competitively since the late sixties (junior high)

About ten of the little owned games are kids' games, from when my kids were little. This is one that someone has already asked me about acquiring, but my daughter and wife will not let it go.

In 1981, my then 100 game collection helped me get a job programming video games on the Intellivision at Mattel Electronics. One of the perks was the Mattel company store. Mattel also owned Whitman, and this is one of the Whitman games I picked up at a discount at the company store. (My box cover is different and not uploaded yet, which is why I am using the board picure)

This Mattel game was also purchased at a discount. Essentially Chinese Checkers where some of the holes don't have bottoms and will eat the first piece to land on them. The board is modular with six pieces, so the location of the holes is not always the same. Played this one a fair amount, especially with the kids when they were older.

Another game that surprised me. This was recommended by a CS professor at college who also had a lot of games (I think the posted date is wrong). We still play it once a year or so. Better with four people. My wife and daughter will play it, though my wife is not much for abstract strategy. Enough luck for her, while still having enough strategy for my son and I.

This is more interesting for the game system. A friend and I used to invent other games to play on this system. I don't remember any of them now, though and it has been a long time since I played around with it.

An unusual little game that I haven't really played heavily. I bought it when it was new, probably at Chess and Games Unlimited in West LA (no longer there). I got quite a few obscure abstracts there, some of which are on this list.

This is another interesting little game I need to try again. Not quite as obscure as some of these. Might be better with a little less luck.

I don't recommend this one. A party game that uses names. Often too easy, but if someone in the game has an unusual name, it can be a problem.

A silly humorous game from Creative Computing. It was kind of fun for a little while. I suspect it might be quite hilarious now, I should pull it out and take a look.
