Unplayed games. My collection continues to grow as I hop back and forth between the cults of the new and old, but some games remain unplayed. I'm typically only able to get two or three games played each week and my need to replay older games or get a new hotness to the table assures that these games continue to collect dust.

Convince me to get these to the table. Tell me what I've been missing out on. This is all very tongue-in-cheek and just a fun way to keep me honest about (and/or shame me into) playing what I own before buying more new games. Ideally a day will come when this list is empty, but until then... for shame.

Unplayed as of 7/22/13: 18
Unplayed as of 8/22/13: 24

I've been looking at Airlines Europe for a long time. Finally picked it up on the cheap at the Rio Grande booth at GenCon.

I've never played a Wargame, ever. (Besides stumbling through War of the Ring). But a lot of aspects of Andean Abyss really caught my eye.

Belfort is my longest-standing unplayed game. I typically sell/trade away games that remain unplayed for an extended period of time, but Belfort has been sitting on my shelf for the better part of a year now. I've heard a lot of great things, but I just can't work up the motivation to learn Belfort and get it to the table.

Played - 7/7/13: I quite enjoyed Belfort, but I'm not sure if it's something I'll be keeping in my collection. I generally enjoyed how the game worked overall, but there wasn't anything that particularly grabbed me over other world placement games. Definitely interested in playing again, and the components are fantastic. Belfort also seemed to bring out horrid AP in my group.

I love Vlaada Chvatil. I love Dungeon Lords. I attribute the time that Dungeon Petz has spent on my shelf to my constant need to play Dungeon Lords over and over, instead of learning Petz.

I'm typically intimidated by anything that even hints at being a Wargame, but I had heard a lot of great things about deck building aspect of A Few Acres of Snow. My girlfriend is my primary two player game partner, but I can't imagine that she would enjoy this. At least, that's my excuse for why this remains unplayed.

I'm a Stefan Feld nut, but I've never played Macao. Shocking, I know. Typically when I'm in the mood for Feld I go straight for Trajan, Castles of Burgundy, or Bora Bora.

I picked Navegador up because I wanted to play a Mac Gerdts rondel game. Much like Serenissmia, I just don't have the drive to get this played.

Played - 7/22/13: Was very interested to play this one after watching Richard Ham's playthrough. Played with three and enjoyed it quite a bit. (I say that on most of these entries, don't I?) I really liked how the rondel limited available actions, how the game overall forces players to work off of each other, and how you really need to focus on two or three things to be succesful. I went with a heavy navigation and colony strategy, but was edged out by someone playing heavy production buildings and shipyards.

I received this for Christmas last year from my girlfriend. Much like A Few Acres of Snow, it hasn't been played because she's not into the theme, and I have a hard time getting two player games out with anyone else.

Found this fairly cheap at a FLGS in the Cinncinatti area, and had to pick it up as an addition to my shelf of Feld games.

My girlfriend and I are both very fond of worker placement games, and Targi seems like something she would enjoy. Personally, I really like the idea of the spatial aspects of the game.

Played - 7/12/13: Played this with my girlfriend and I enjoyed it quite a bit, she enjoyed it until we tallied up the points and found that she had lost by only one point. Targi is a very tight design and one of the best purely two player games that I've played. I really like the dynamic of how your actions create the coordinates for additional actions in the center of the board.
