I have the collector's bug. I admit it... I'm weak. Here's a list of collecting "Holy Grails" that I have had over the years that I've been lucky enough to find. Feel free to add your "grails" to the list.

I'm not sure if this is a grail game or not. I got it on the cheap about $25 years or so ago. It's not a bad game, it just takes too long.

After checking ebay it sells for around $70. That's not a massive Grail, but it's worth something.

Despite the crappy rules and mass market publisher, this one is just getting harder and harder to get. Expect Ebay prices to continue to climb.

I was told they printed 4000 copies of this and they have all be sold to distributors. How many are still on shelves is beyond me. Still I think this is the "Franklin Mint" edition worthy of a collection.

There are a few different versions of the 1955 PB game floating around including a French one shown here. Considering when it came out this was probably ahead of its time in the wargame department. In some ways it reminds me of the game Conflict which came out much later. I recently saw a used French copy of this go for over $125 at Funagain. I'm not sure they're worth that much but they do seem hard to find.

FWIW I have the English version and I'm missing some infantry units, so if you have any bits for this game, please GM me and let me know if you'll part with them.meeple

Like Acquire, this game is fairly easy to find. What's hard to find is a good copy of the version shown here with the Swastika on it. The cards also have the symbol on them. Later versions were toned down with the German Adler on the cover and different card backs. My copy is the non-PC version. This may be one of the earliest coop games released that I can think of and still a good one at that.

Pure Ameritrash that was never released in the US. This one has great bits and is a blast playing. I'm not sure how easy it is to get in Essen but you don't see it much in the US or on eBay.

This is a recent one that's a holy grail for me. From what I gathered they only printed 500 copies that only went to friends and select sales. Bummer since this looks like a fun Euro style game with a hilarious theme (haircuts in the old West). Anyone got a copy they want to sell?

Good for educating economics to children, and even to adults.
It's very rare and a nice economic game.

The luxurious version of 70th Anniversary Monopoly.
This game is huge, 10kg heavy, and 100% wooden drawer style boardgame.
It is rather than furniture, not a simple boardgame.
This version deserves to be a holy grail.
