Please add games here that you would love to play but it never happens (and explain why). Perhaps you don't have enough friends and Craig's List is too scary. Perhaps when you mention it, people say "O man! Come on! This is the 21st Century." Perhaps you can't stay up the requisite 72 hours nowadays (or you don't have access to the appropriate drugs).

I really feel this game requires at least 6 players. It also needs players of a certain temperament. And my youngest is too lazy to write out orders. I will never sell my diplomacy set but this is destined to be an unused heirloom.

I have had a few abortive attempts at playing this. Based on those experiences I really need to study the rules. I'd also like more players than I can get hold of.

I have an old edition. I have tried a few 2 player games. But it really is too cumbersome. It seems to take a long time. I need that fourth player. This is one of the remaining things I want to do before I die.

Covert Action takes 6 players to really get good (4 is the minimum, but it's definitely not as fun). I rarely have enough people around to get this one to the table . . . .

That's unfortunate, because the thrills and laughs this game brings to the table are so memorable! With rounds that can be over in a couple of seconds or take several minutes, every game ends up being a blast!

A Game of Thrones was my first big game purchase. I didn't even know about the books or series, but the cover art drew me in. After reading the instructions, I realized this was the type of game I had been looking for! The mechanics are so good, but finding enough people that actually want to play it and have the time to do so is not always so easy to do.
