I have at least one old game in my collection where whenever I've asked someone to play they reply, "No thanks, I played that one to death back when it first came out in 19XX/20XX."

Do any of my fellow Geeks have one of these lonely old games sitting on their shelf at home yearning and begging to be played?

I know this one came out years before I was born but I really like it. Simple to learn, and fun to play...well I think anyway. I have never finished a game as I had only had 1 person years ago even remotely show an interest in playing.

GAMMARAUDERS!

Too old and war-gamey for the casual crowd, and too old and casual for the war-gamers!

Back in high in the early to mid Nineties, we used to play weekend-long marathons of this game, but since then, all the guys I played with have moved away from this style of game and nobody in today's board gaming world seems to have any interest in getting this old (and flawed) favourite on the table.

My favorite old classic A-H wargame. Would love to get this back on the table, and my scratchy LP of the "1812 Overture" on the turntable next to it while we play.

Great SPI game. Would love to get this one back on the playing table again, too.

Played this lots fifteen - twenty years ago, but could never win as the Allies. Finally I won, through tricksy positional play, and swore that I'd never play again. And I haven't !

I'll play any game from the Fleet series, but 2nd Fleet is my favorite.

I've tried to force the issue by GMing this game at local conventions. I got a nibble here and there, but as the years passed, people stopped signing up.

I would like to spend time and play through all of the scenarios in order. I don't care if some of them are not balanced.

Sure the Germans won most (ok all) of the time but who cares? Well apparently a lot of people cared. I still have an idea for an allied strategy I just know will work, but alas no one is interested.

My first AH game, and played it many many times with my brother. Just take it out recently and played with my cousin. Still a good game after many years.
