I live in a city where nobody does anything right, or at least it feels that way when you live with a slum lord.

When my building was bought from one landlord to another. We were the only tenants living in the building. Naturally the new land lord wanted to do renovations. There are rules to this kind of thing, and it is possible, how ever none of the rules were followed. What resulted is a tale of vast woe.

Disturbed asbestos, became asbestos dust (and lead dust) in my apartment. All my possessions had to be abandoned, clothing, furniture, school books, even GAMES. Now I am not only broke, but game less. Note that my land lord still refuses to pay ANY compensation for anything.

The following is a list of the games that shall be missed: New items may be added as I remember them.


To all who have given advice I thank you;. Actually I had already made an appointment with a lawyer. (It's tomorrow). I have had 3 different inspectors come in(from 3 different agencies), so we are on track. Still is difficult, being broke and all. Also got a ton of pictures.

Please note my post about not turning this into a debate. (some where in the comments!)

Oh boy did it ever (not a war game, but a good closer for the list)

That is all, I may remember others latter, but it's a pretty brutal list of lost games.
I would like to say they are fine, but they are not. We have spent a lot of time researching, talking to inspectors, and experts. All say they should be junked. Unless it's plastic and can be wiped down, its trash bait. Paper holds the dust well, and as one paper stated 'EVERY EXPOSURE COUNTS'.
