We've all seen an advert for a game at some point that has swayed our decision on whether to purchase a game or not.I remember seeing this advertisement for Heroquest when I was younger and I immediately fell in love with it.Weeks of begging later when my Birthday came along,I finally got to play it.I still love it now!What commercials have made YOU want a particular game?

The only game I've ever bought because of a commercial, without first seeing if it was any good(I didn't know about BGG at the time).

This isn't the commercial I saw, but it would still make me buy the game:

Okay, okay - so I'm an old fart. So what?

The commercial for this one lit a burning hunger in me. It just looked so cool! I never got it though, but a friend had it so I got to play.

Years later I picked up a copy just for the fun of it.
