This is a list of classic, well-regarded games that I haven't played yet, and really need to play. In general, these are games I'm interested in playing, or consensus 'great' games that I have yet to play. You'll notice there aren't really wargames or anything like that on here -- these are more games I might actually play.

Inspired by another Andrew.

I love card games so this one seems like it would be a hit. It's been around for a long time, too. If only I had played it.

My unobtainable grail game, I've heard it's good but probably not as good as I've made it out to be. In either case, gotta play this classic!

A classic filler that I've rarely seen people dislike here on the geek. I've never bothered to buy it or even play it. Why?

This looks like an abstract I would love and could probably play 2-player with my wife. It's even thriftable so that somehow makes this even more inexcusable. Bonus inexcusable points for being one of my mother-in-law's favorites.

I love to at least try polarizing games and T&E sure looks polarizing. Ra is one of my top games in my collection but all of my other Knizia experience has been spotty. Could this one be as good as Ra? I don't know, haven't played it yet!

Maybe limited availability is the real culprit here, but Concordia just looks like that prototypical smooth-playing Euro game that I would just love. The newest game on the list?

What the heck. I love space, I love 4x, I love euros. Why haven't I played this one yet? Inexcusable.

I have not played Dominion. I've played many deck-builders, but never the original. Has it been surpassed by later games? Probably. Is deck-building even one of my favorite mechanics? Not really. Should I still play Dominion? Absolutely, at some point.

I'm not really a Feld fan, but I still haven't tried this, which is probably his consensus best (or at least most well-known) game. Tried Trajan and was really underwhelmed, and never made it past the rules of Bora Bora. Still, maybe CoB is different. . .

Inexcusable. For a former #1 game, and with role selection to boot, I really need to try this one. Honorable mention: San Juan which is the card game version.
