So, looking at my collection, and sometimes others, I see some clear themes. However, sometimes I see a game, or two, that just don't seem to fit with the others. There are reasons for that, but I was curious how others get their collection.

So, what games do you have in your collection that others might think are odd for you to own?

What is the story behind it?

I will get us started.

I'm not a party game guy nor a dexterity game guy. I hate plastic. Why the Hell is Toc Toc here? Well, at the Essen game session at my place someone brought thier newly-purchased copy and my son liked it, my wife liked it, and I...I...kinda liked it. So I got it. But I hide it in the back room when my gaming friends come over. Would not look right next to Cave Evil, Where Eagles Dare and Here I Stand.

This is the weirdest game I have. When you have a confrontation with another player you take turns puching a button on a pot-bellied stove and if the devil pops up on you, you lose the confrontation.

Found this at a thrift store for $3. German edition but the previous owner printed the english rules and added them to the box.... never played it... not exactly sure why, just seems too complicated to commit.
Anyone ever played this?

I mostly enjoy Fantasy, light Strategy, and the occasional Family/Party game. However, my wife is a Home Medical Herbologist and finishing her Master Herbologist Certification. Hence, we got Wildcraft to help teach our kids about herbs (had to make some house rules).

This is a Parker Brothers game from 1960 that is about yacht racing. The game comes in a large slipcase, features an over-sized board, and high-quality game components.

Game play is relatively sophisticated for a game of this era. Movement of the players yachts is made by the playing of cards which bring about changes to the direction of the wind.

I found a complete copy of this game and upon opening it I was enthralled by the little brass yachts and the overall simplicity of the design. The good part is I got this in an estate sale for $5. I'd really like to play it more but can't garner interest in my local gaming group.
