Back in October 2006 I posted a geeklist with the following description. I thought it pretty interesting, so I thought I'd revisit the topic:

"Oh look, it's on sale, and I know it's rated highly on BGG, I should get it." -- But then, you never play it.

This list is for that one highest BGG rated game you've owned for more than a month, but have yet to get around to playing.

The hobby of collecting games is almost as alluring as the hobby of playing them. Who can blame us for snatching up those games on sale we didn't even know we wanted? Or, perhaps on a whim you put it down on your 'math trade wishlist', and didn't really think you'd get it.

Please include how long you've had it, and also if you regret the purchase or not.

Love the idea, but can't find people to play it with right now. Currently on my trade list...

I also have Die Macher, C&C Ancients, and Taj Mahal all unplayed .


Had it: Close to 6 months I think.

Regret it: Nope, but I do want to try it.

I got this as a Christmas present in '06, but it has yet to reach the table. I hope to rectify that soon, but I've been hoping for that for a while! It tops my vast list of owned-but-unplayed games which includes Caylus, Taj Mahal and Amun-Re.

Sad, I know. I've owned this for 2+ years and still haven't played a game. My regular group tried to get through the rules explanation once, and we made it through 2 turns before we gave up for something we had played before. It's such a popular game that I always figured I would learn it somewhere else, then teach it to my gaming group, but I never have made it into a game. I can't believe I'm such a boardgame fan and haven't ever played it.

blush

I don't regret buying it, because others who enjoy similar tastes as mine think this one's a classic. I'm sure I'll enjoy it as soon as I get it to the table.

Picked this up on the Tangathon on March 8th. Read the rules and got a headache, I will have to give it another shot. It doesn't help that my game group has only met twice since I bought it.

Other in the top 100:

Die Macher
Go
Arkham Horror

I got this one for exactly the reasons you describe. I'm sure I'll play it eventually, but for now there are just too many other two player games that I'd like to focus on getting to know really well.

At rank 33, this is my highest rated game I've yet to play. I got it unopened from a math trade for Battle Ball back in January. (I think that wins 'the most dissimilar games in a trade' prize.) Heck, I bought a bunch of Battleball games just for snicks because they were so cheap so this cost me $5.

I'm not sure if I'll ever play this. I'm not much of a 'real' card player (counting cards and paying attention to who took what turns me off).

How long have I had it? Since January.
Do I regret it? Nah. Participating in Math Trades is fun, and Battle Ball was just sitting around.

I picked this up several months ago. It's in an older bookshelf-style box, might be 3M, I really don't know.

I primarily bought it because I thought, "Hmm...for $3, I'll have a pretty damned popular game, and one that really ought to be in my collection."

But I doubt my wife will play it with me, and to be perfectly honest it's not something that interests me much anyhow.

But for $3, I don't regret the purchase. Too bad I wouldn't be able to trade it for anything either! (Any takers? )

It's coming out next time I think.

I've owned it for about 3 months now.

Sadly, there are 2 other games in the top 50 and another 3 under 100 I've never played, some quite old, years in fact.

I am looking forward to playing it. It looks to be different enough from other games I play to be interesting.

One of the first games I bought, back in January 2007. Most of the gaming I have done has been two player (wife), or with new players, so this game has not made it to the table yet. We have a big weekend coming up over Memorial Day, so hopefully this will make to the table.

I bought this when Tanga had it cheap. I've had it for a few months now.

I'm not in a rush to get it to the table because I've played Wallenstein a few times, so I already have the flavor of the game. It'll hit the table eventually.

I don't regret the purchase; it's supposed to be a touch better than the original, and I *am* a collector.

But, given how similar it is to Wallenstein, I don't *really* count this as unplayed...

Which means my next highest unplayed game is Imperial (31). I've had it since Christmas. It's odd; Imperial sees a fair bit of play around me, I just never seem to end up at the table when it does.

The next two are Roads and Boats (42) and Antiquity (84), both of which should get played relatively soon.

So, I own 64 of the top 100 (the missing ones are mostly the wargamish ones), and have not played only 4 of them; not too bad. (And there's about 4 of the top 100 I've played but don't own, so it all balances out...)

I picked this up for $3.00 at the Flea Market at DunDraCon, but have yet to get it to the table. When the person selling it told me how much he wanted for it, I couldn't get my money out fast enough.

Bought this on e-bay about 18 months ago.

Have bought so many more games since that look more exciting. The copy I own is the one pictured, I dont think this helps when I suggest playing it to anyone.cry

I bought this off Tanga quite a while ago. Odds that I'll ever have 4 players willing to get into a game this long and heavy? Nil.

Why did I buy it? It was a good price, and I figure that it may make for decent trade fodder someday down the road.

I've owned it a year and a half or so. I looked over the rules and thought it would take a miracle to get my friends to play it. However, I've been back through it recently and I'm gonna try my best to get it played this weekend.

So I don't regret it yet, and probably won't. Even if I can't get it played, it's real good trade fodder. I've had it on my trade list and have had many people offer things for it.

Got it at the end of january... Got so many game in trades lately, and some purchase, that it didn't hit the table yet, but it's just a question of time!

But this one, after seeing it played, I really wanted to get it and try it, but with my 40+ unplayed game, it was push a little, but card games are really popular in my group, and they play well, on the patio, on a summer evening, with cold beer...

I own this game already over 2 months. It is still waiting for the right mood of my wife. The reason is we've recently introduced a couple from the neighbourhood to boardgaming and there were a lot of opportunities to play many games with them and not that much time for a 2-player games.

I think I will see after the first 2 games whether I regret it or not.

It's funny, but I have had this game for ages and have never had an occasion to play it. It seems like it would be fun, short and light fare but my "short and light" gaming friends prefer to play stuff they already know. Well I guess it is just the case of "one too many new game to learn" for them. It will probably stay on the shelf for some time yet.

I got this game after loving Princes of the Renaissance so much. I guess that was last July. I don't regret the purchase at all (actually I guess it was a gift, but I don't regret it either way).

I will get this played, but with all the unplayed games in our group it is just a matter of timing more than anything else.
