I'm a maximizer. I'm also not a board game collection. What this means is that I'm eager to get ride of games that aren't good enough.

If I try a game and I think there's another game that's both sufficiently similar and better, I'll trade/sell/etc in pursuit of that better alternative. Sometimes,though, I make a mistake. Hence, this list -- those games I wish I had kept.


This geeklist is more for my own interest, but feel free to comment if you've stumbled upon it.

I got it, and got rid of it (without playing it), right when it came out--I didn't think it looked like the decisions were interesting enough.

Now that more reports are in, it looks like it might be pretty good...

Got it 'cause I thought Invaders looked like a better "re-implementation". But it's not (Invaders has no real narrative).

Hoping Lifeforms will fill this hole in my collection...

I thought Rallyman was a better race game... but no one ever wanted to play Rallyman!

Now, after playing Giro d'Italia, I think Leader 1: Hell of the North might be the race game I'm looking for...

Yes, I've previously owned 2 copies of Cape Horn...

Deck building games tend to be unfulfilling. This might be the best of the bunch?

Not a lot of good cowboy games, Lost Valley is in the same league, but this one is combative.

One of, if not the, best fillers out there. But while I'm not really into fillers--and this doesn't have all that much replay value--it still has a role to play...

Not many good games about Dracula... However, this one attracts a high price tag than I think it's worth.

This was the old 'big box' version, before the reprint, which attracted a higher price tag than I think it's worth.

Now that there's a smaller reprint, that's less costly, I think this would be worthwhile... after all, there aren't really any good epic fantasy games. (Warrior Knights, which replaced this, strikes a similar feel without the fantasy element.) Both, though, are longer than they should be (WK being the worse offender.)

Unique theme, unique execution (if old in style)
