I've been adding and adding games for years, leaving more and more unplayed and even never games on the shelves. New darlings replace favourite games, staples fall out of the rotation. With Essen around the corner (who's counting?) I'm reevaluating parts of my collection with the help of a BGG-peer review. Please help by adding your comments on why I should keep or get rid of these games!

Played it a couple of times, but really, I have better 2-player games (LOTR: the confrontation, Hanabi, Battle Line etc.).

VERDICT: Purge

It's a Knizia. I would probably love it. Still haven't played it in the 10(!!!) years it's been on my shelves though...

VERDICT: Keeper (unsurprisingly)

Another Knizia. Played it once, OK. The box is big and ugly.

Played it once, it's ok and looks great on the table. But how many generic medieval games can you have?

Bought this as my most wanted game in Essen 2015. Still unplayed. It looks so good. Complicated?

Is it a game? Experience once with gf who liked it, found an app that could speed things up a bit. Better or worse with more players than two?

Looks great. Fun, but too thinky for it's own good?
Hard to reapproach when there's no rule booklet.

OK first round, liked it the second time - but it's way too long isn't it? Let's just play TTR instead, shall we?

VERDICT: Probably purged. A little too fiddly and long for what it is.

Amazing production values. But the game is both too long and too short at the same time? Probably a keeper though.
