It seems there are a lot of tales of woe on BGG about people not being able to play much, or not getting to play their most recent buys.

I'm lucky enough to usually get to play every week with my group, but there are still some games that I sink money into without playing.

I now have 2 different ships of every faction (3 in federation) in the base set, and 2 Dominion ships. My friends simply don't want to play and with work it's really hard to get to the local tournaments.

I think this is the one for me. I've got a core set, Khazad-Dum deluxe, all Mirkwood adventure packs and even to Nightmare decks, and I really don't get to play. The solo game lost its appeal to me a long time ago, and I've yet to find anyone else who would be willing to play with me.

It was a decent price (as far as Roads & Boats goes) and it was one of my "grail" games.

I've never been able to get it out of the box. It just sits there mocking me and collecting dust...

I got this almost a year ago.. the full collectors bundle.. I did manage to lunch the base game and look at some of the cards but interest seems to just not be there for anyone but myself to play it.

Any of a pile of old ASL titles collecting dust in the attic.

But I think your question is really asking not about games that you bought decades ago and have since become collector's items...but instead about recent purchases that haven't gotten played.

For that: Brass. A relatively expensive game that has stayed in the shrink for me. I have been put off by the length and complexity*. Someday...

*The irony of the "length and complexity" remark--alongside the ASL reference above--is not lost on me.

Between this and the expansion I'm in about $150 bucks (including shipping) and I get to play it once a year if I'm lucky. My wife says she'll only play it with my on my birthday and my son is 18 months old so he's no help either. Though he did have a great time looking at the pieces and trying to get them off the table the one time we had it out.

It just sits on my shelf collecting dust. Poor Fleet Captains.

Between this and Hoardes I have probably over a grand of this stuff sitting in cases and boxes. I haven't played in a few years. I really should just sell it.

My wife got me the leather bound, hand painted deluxe edition. We played it once, maybe twice.

It's a fine game, but I'm just afraid of damaging it.

I ordered two copies, and sold my original (with the Banzai expansion) for a pittance, thinking it wouldn't be worth anything.

Part of why I like board games is the quest for the rare and obscure. I haven't played 1/10 of the ones I own. I picked this game because it may be the most expensive I own. I would love to play my games but sadly I dont have friends whose eyes dont glaze over when learning anything more complicated than Hemloch (I use it as a gateway game). One day each of my games will be played as much as they deserve! Until then, I continue to be a collector who occasionally games.
