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.

Another old AH title. My sons and I did quite a bit of killing with this one. Never did get to play a game with the full allotment of players and would enjoy getting that chance.

I have the original game not AH and then the AH reprint. Oh to get into a true blind, umpired game of this. Now that would be sweet.

I played this a lot back in college and think it may still stand up as the best U.S. political game to date - no dice, just pure reading of your opponents and their likely moves.

I'm not sure how many copies were printed, but its developer, John Reed Koza, went on to more interesting and lucrative activities in genetic research and lottery gaming. And since it is one of those games where you are supposed to stick pins into the board, much-played copies tended to deteriorate quickly.

I finally acquired a never-played copy earlier this year and have seen only two others offered - one at $399 and the other in shrink at an eye-popping $599.

Now if only I could find a complete copy of the 1935 Oswald B. Lord The Game of Politics...

A focused member of the venerable Empire Builder Rail Games family. Game focuses on railroading in the state of West Virginia.

Was designed as a tie-in to a museum exhibition, and was not commercially available. I've been told that fewer than 500 copies were produced, though I have never been able to confirm that.

An epic game of battling, fantasy empires from TSR. A "25th Anniversary Edition" was printed in 2002 (23 years after the original), and has become hard to find itself.
