What games are in your Top 10 that for some reason you haven't recently brought to the table? What games do you miss like *crazy* but your friends don't care for it so it doesn't see any table time?

Inquisitive minds want to know!

Bar none my FAVORITE board game. 2+ years ago we played this constantly. Maybe my friends got tired of it? I don't know - all I know is that Arkham Horror got shelved. Since then I've gotten various expansions and for X-Mas/New Years I picked up the final 2 to complete my collection, Miskatonic Horror and the Revised Curse of the Pharaoh. I also bought FFG sleeves to sleeve my most coveted of games and am FINALLY planning on bringing it out to the table - whether its with friends or playing solo!!!

I love this game, but I simply cannot find people who want to play! I played a few solo games (it's totally possible if you are good at forgetting what you just did lol).

I finally found someone who not only wants to play, but his fiance got him a base set for X-Mas! So this game will be seeing a lot of time soon, hopefully.

Another favorite that saw a lot of table time (especially solo). Eventually it got shelved after 1-2 games of the last "big box" expansion, and FFG has failed to release any other Big Box's in the last few years.

This is another one that requires sleeving, but the # of FFG sleeves (which I like - high quality) would be INSANE not to mention expensive! Maybe one day - if I'm lucky maybe after Arkham this will be the next big sleeving project

This game drips of theme and what better then a coop card game that sees you and your friend fighting the forces of evil? Why has it been shelved?

Well, it's a LCG - a Living Card Game. I bought the main game and the first 2 expansions, but after that I just didn't keep up like I should have. Now, if I want to play again and "catch up" there are like 12+ expansions that have been released. At $12.50 or $15 each, plus another "big box" that's almost $200 or more to try to catch up.

Shelved it remains... sigh.

Another LCG, another game shelved because I wasn't able to keep up. This game, I collected the first entire "series" and I believe the 2nd. The problem was not finding anyone willing to play this one. I thought I found a friend who wanted to play, and he seemed excited but when he read up about the game he said that there was a simple strategy to win like a "unbeatable deck" so he lost interest.

Yeah, so shelved for 2 year and now way too behind to catch up unless I was really rich lol

One of the BEST games that doesn't ever hit the table. Dripping in theme, I think I was the only person at the table who loved this game. I know 1-2 complained about the end, feeling the mechanic made it feel more like your planting evidence as opposed to uncovering clues to discover the true murderer.

I saw it as simply that, a mechanic and could still see myself as a detective trying to uncover the murderer.

Anyway, I hope I can convince some people to give this game another shot, but after one play when it first came out, it's been on the shelf for what, 3 years? 4 years? Geez.

The one game on this list I might get a lot of flack over. This one I shelved myself. I find Dominion utterly boring. I've played it several times and each time thee game mechanics bore me - which is funny since I like playing Thunderstone (which shares a similar mechanic). Ironically, I have a friend who LOVES Dominion but can't stand Thunderstone lol

Anyway, I never invested much into the game because the base set consistently left me bored.

A game I want to like. A game I kinda DID like/love for while. I found an excellent sale on eBay years ago and bought the kitten kaboodle. I got the basic set and all the expansions in one buy and played it for a while. I played it with friends a few times but mostly solo and finally shelved the game, with more then half the expansions never been played.

I keep trying to bring the game back out and I end up staring at the cards in confusion, not wishing to try to figure out the rules again, and promptly shelving it again lol

We have had this set up with my normal group twice and it has always fallen through. I even tried to set it up with a different group but it did not work out.

I used to play this game often, maybe once a month. It's still in my top 10, but's much of its playing time has been taken by other games, especially Dominion and Stone Age.

I do want to try some of the web-published scenarios, so I can see this one getting played at least a few times in 2013.

For a few years, this was my most played game. My wife was my most frequent opponent, and we had a few others that would play occasionally. But then my wife got frustrated because I was obsessed with building awesome decks and ultimately made them "too good". She become bored with losing and didn't want to invest any more time in deck building. We moved on to other games. Once in a while, I'll still take out the cards to tinker with the decks and playtest them.

This one hasn't hit the table in a long while. Only once since the expansion. People tend to shy away from the theme but those that do take a chance love the game! I have to push this one more.

I love this game - in fact, I've become a big fan of Wallace's trimmed down versions of his games.

But I really miss playing this one. My current group is split on this, so it hasn't been played in a long time.

One of my top 10 games for sure. Maybe my favorite one from Knizia. Unfortunately it is 3-4 players and my main gain partner is my wife. There is an official 2 player variant but it does not look that good with the dummy player...
