I know this is a common problem for gamers, the one where your significant other constantly is telling you that you need to buy more games. "There's too much empty shelf space!" "Over half your collection has already been played at least once!" "UPS hasn't delivered anything in almost a week!"

I'll admit, I bring this on myself - I often sell or trade games, for some reason thinking it's the responsible thing to do. I don't know who I'm kidding.

In any case, I'm at 91 games. I need to buy nine games just to keep the SO from driving me nuts. And just to demonstrate why we all have big collections, I'm going to (easily) do it using only games that start with the letter "A" and go up to starting with "Aq", as well as only using games that I actually would like to own.

I don't own it because it's expensive and hard to find, coupled with that I'd never get it on the table. Or if I could get it on the table, it would be at a convention and somebody else would already have a copy.

But it's obviously a classic, and it would look great on my game shelf

Have played this one a lot on Michael Schacht's website - a nice pick-up-and-deliver game. I don't really have one of these in my collection, but my wife and some friends of ours are starting to play more games, and this one would be a great one to try with them.

Owned this one in the past. Have played it several times on SlothNinja's excellent site. Never really been able to decide whether I like it not, but would really like a chance to play it F2F, as I think that's the only way I'd ever be able to conclude one way or the other.

Supposed to come out this summer - if it's truly a streamlined Struggle of Empires, I want to be first in line to buy!

Played somebody else's copy once and enjoyed it. Again, a good game to introduce newer gamers to.

Never really pursued it hard, but not an easy game to find. I liked the sound of it when it was first coming out, but never got around to getting a copy. It seems to be well received and my type of game, so since I'm "have to" buy games within this constraint, I will renew my efforts.

Another exceptionally popular and well received game that sounds right up my alley that I somehow have managed to never play. Now with expansions. I'll never catch up.

I believe the only Gerdts / Rondel game I've never tried. Obviously, that's a gap I need to fill.

Not a Feld fanatic, but I have certainly enjoyed some of his games. Easy to sell or trade if it's not my cup of tea.
