I have a pretty respectable game collection, but not enough time or a regular gaming group with which to play them. Mostly I pull out the game, read the rule book, admire the pieces and then sadly put everything away back in the box. Here's a list of the top games in my collection I look forward to eventually playing.

One of my favorite movies of the 70's was the Three Musketeers and since I was dying for a game of this genre, I bought a copy. After all, this game reviewed well and has beautiful components. Cooperative play, sword fighting, romance... What doesn't this game have? Me playing it.

When I first discovered gaming past Monopoly and Risk, I was working in a Game Keeper. After playing Talisman, I found and fell in love with Space Hulk. Hey! It has the Space Marine from Talisman and the plot of Alien! I think this game was responsible for my love of modular maps and miniature games. When it was re-re-issued, I sprung for a copy. Has it been played yet? Nope.

I think I will buy any game with the word "Dungeon" in the title. I bought SDE because of all of the cool minis and thought I could get my anime/manga/video game obsessed kids to play it with me. Hasn't worked yet. (I think it's because Daddy needs to assemble all those minis!)

As a huge Star Wars fan and after hearing how amazing this game was on the 'Geek, I was ecstatic to find a relatively cheap copy at a local gaming convention flea market. Now that I have it, have I played it? Nope.

DungeonQuest might be my favorite fantasy board game ever and I played the crap out of my original copy until I sold it after I graduated college (sorry board game collection, I had to pay the rent.) When the third edition came out, I leapt at the chance to own it again. I am happy to say I own it, but have I played it yet? (I'll let you guess the answer.)

I played this at Kubla-Con back in 2008 and fell in love with the theme, the "guess the traitor" mechanic and even the old timey board. I immediately bought a copy and it has sat on my shelf since.

Cowboys and the old west is another genre I really like so I bought this card game when I learned about it. Sadly, this gun has yet to be drawn...

An Indiana Jones-esque game with a dice rolling mechanic? That sounds awesome! However I still don't know HOW awesome...

An Indiana Jones-esque game with a rolling ball? That sounds awesome! Yep, I still don't know if it's awesome...

UPDATE: I finally tore the plastic off of this one and played a game with my son. He was a little resistant at first, but the moving boulder and walls won him over. Unfortunately, two of our adventurers got squished by the boulder, one stepped onto a lava-trapped tile and one was sealed away forever! All in all, I liked it (I will like I better when I paint the characters) and it reminded me of DungeonQuest as it seems ridiculously hard to get survive... although we might have had really bad luck rolling for the boulder!

Even though I've have stated my love for many genres, comic books in general and Batman in particular is my favorite. I like a good heroclix game (one of the few games I do play from time to time) and when this board game came out, it leapt to the top of my OMG, I must OWN!!! list. Well, now I own it and ironically, I haven't even played with the clix versions let alone the board game. Sigh.

I bought this because of the "Adventure-Time" style art and the theme -who doesn't like a game about Wizards dueling? Who hasn't played this even though it's in his collection? Yep. Me, that's who.
