I had a large collection of games when I was a kid and as I moved away for college my gaming hobby took a very far backseat. Through the many moves across many states my game collection lost items here and there due to space constraints or a lack of respect for just how awesome the game was. Lets put a list together of those games that you have lost/misplaced/thrown away that you wish you could get back.

I got this for Christmas and played it quite a lot.

A year or so later, we moved overseas and it went into "storage", never to be seen again.

It may have actually gone into storage, but after 10 years of moving around the world, at some point it was gone.

Sometimes I still play this online...

My favorite game of all time growing up. We played the crap out of this game, but made sure to keep it in good, working shape.

When we finally sold our house to move, the box was far too large and I had to make a choice between this or all of my Lego sets. I chose to keep my precious Lego, and off Torpedo Run went to the Goodwill. cry

I want this game back so badly for my kids, but, at the current prices it sells for complete, it'll be nothing more than, "the one that got away."

I picked this up as a kid, but never seem to be able to find it. Just something I sometimes wish was still in my collection.

I remember getting it for Christmas from my parents. I have no idea what happened to it. I loved the boats rotating on the game board and striving to make sure that they wouldn't touch the Nautilus.

Man...I miss this game.

I threw it away about 20 years ago because it was missing pieces. So it would only have been worth a couple of hundred dollars now. shake

Housecleaning purge, early-mid 80s: just callously threw it away and actually felt good about it. Then.

I used to have a fair collection. But I stopped keeping it up to date when Ice Age came out...so 97ish. Multiple Alpha, Beta cards, Legends, Arabian Nights, you get the idea.

The cards sat in my closet unused for years, some how along the way my collection of basic lands was lost, so now deck building wasn't even an option. I did have several dual lands, but can't make a deck w/ only those can we.

At one point about 4 years ago the last FLGS within an hour drive of my house went out of business. I erroneously thought it was because the hobby was dead/dying and that these cards no longer had value, and w/o land were useless to me as well.

So, without checking online to see how wrong I was, I walked a box out to the dumpster and tossed them. A year later I moved, there are now at least 6 FLGS that have a good Magic community w/ cards for sale. It hurts to even look at them. "$80 for this card, oh I had 6 of those.", "Oh, that one's $120, yeah I had 3." If I really thought about it I probably threw away a car, or down payment on a house that afternoon.

Most of my entries are more recent, not games from my childhood or anything. Still, I don't know that I'll ever have a strong enough urge to REpurchase them. I'm just bummed that I got rid of them in the first place, because I would still play them if I had them in my collection. But when I moved halfway across country, I simply couldn't ship/fit my entire collection in my car.

I miss this game for sure.

I had this game with the Nile expansion once upon a time. And it was my favorite "type" of game, too:

Plays in about 45 min.
Set number of rounds
Simple choices
Deep gameplay

.........cry

I guess I had a thing for ancient Egypt. This one and the entry above were pretty special to me. What was I thinking?! (I don't know.) shake

This is one of my BIGGEST regrets. Sadly, my understanding is that it is out of print, for good! If I could move back to California from Texas all over again, I would have sold off different games. soblue

I was the only one in my circle of people who I tended to play with who really believed in this game. But alas, everyone couldn't see past the funky mechanics. This was before Stefan Feld really took off as a designer.

This is also out of print, much to my chagrin.
