My favorite online game store has been clearancing some games lately. There's been a lot of duds, but also a lot of really great games in there. This got me thinking about games I've picked up or seen being cleared out. It's always great to pick up a great game cheap, but it's a little sad when good games are overlooked.

What games have you seen undeservedly on clearance?

Titan has its share of flaws, but...this is a classic! Surely the new version wasn't that bad, was it?

Awesome programmed movement game. Lots of excitement. A lot faster playing than Roborally. I'm amazed that this never caught on. Perhaps it's too stressful with the timer running?

A cute pick-up-and-deliver game that's light and fast to play, but still has a pretty good dose of strategy. And it's got awesome elephants!

I think this was one very unfairly hosed by Tom Vassel complaining about a complete non-issue. (He complained that you could just score 18 points by passing all game, and could theoretically do better than someone who actually played. This is like complaining that Age of Steam is flawed because you can pass all game and do better than someone who went bankrupt).

A clever and fast paced game of secret action selection where you try to out-guess and outwit the other players. This has been getting a lot of play in our game group lately; it's a great filler.

Brand new, very cute, reasonably tactical, and...on clearance already?

Another classic. Maybe everyone already owns a copy?
