This is the flip side of the Lust list http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/34639

Those top 266 wargames that many more people want to give away (trade) a particular game than want to acquire it; trade/want. Sort of a "you don't love me anymore" list.

Some interesting titles on this list. Listed in order of the highest ratio of trade to want first. You will need a Kleenex. Some real classics being dis'd.

Only 2 games on this list have a 7 rating or higher (Stonewall and Alexander).

18 AH classics on the list. Only one game published in the last 10 years: Nero. And only 2 titles in the previous 10 years (Alexander and Hunt for Red October). Average age of the games - 30 years.

1/2 the titles are WWII.

Average game rating of 6.0 on the list and a weight of 3.3.
