While I've dabbled with games as long as I can remember, it was two years ago that BoardGameGeek really took hold and I started collecting games. I've learned a lot about the hobby, and have finally gotten to the point where its rare that I see a game that's completely new.

I now have 96 games listed in my collection, and after receiving increased flack from family and friends saying, "You still have games in shrink!" I think its well past time I take a good hard look at my collection - specifically games that have NEVER hit the table - and find out why. Will they hit the table next week? year? EVER? Should I trade them? Sell them?

For increased shock value, I've listed the games in ranked order.

EDIT: After seeing the total count, exactly one third of my games are unplayed.

I tried a sample hand with my girlfriend, very excited after loving San Juan, and we both couldn't stand it - it seemed like it played itself. I'd like to give it an honest shot with four, but to be honest I might just trade it.

An auction game, and my girlfriend can't stand auction games after trying Modern Art. The boards sure are pretty..

I'm a sucker for card games, and this was fresh and popular. The convoluted rulebook is probably the sole reason this hasn't hit the table in over a year since I got it. Being Required to teach it to three other people seems like a nightmare.

I received an old copy of Aquire from one of my mom's friends. I've played a sample hand, but I haven't played a game yet. I blame the lack of opponents and the boring, text-book like appearance (that I happen to enjoy).

I purchased the two master sets for $20 each from Cool Stuff Inc to try out the system. They'll be here Friday, and I hope to convince my gaming friend/co-worker to have a go at it with me.

This has been on my shelf for a while. I like the card/bidding system. I heard it plays best with four, and only four, and the stars haven't aligned yet..

I was really excited to bring home a game with all of the trading excitement of Settlers. Instead, after reading the rulebook, what Scott said to me was best - "Its a great game if you want to spend two hours bickering."

This game was part of Ogdred's auction, and it should arrive soon, hence my not having played it. Between Random Person mentioning it when we were discussing mechanics for a Bike Mechanic game, and seeing it on several girlfriend friendly lists, I picked it up. This will get at least one play.

I love the theme and concept of Junta, but the war game part of this has stopped me from introducing it to my friends. Its just a little bit too much for non-gamers.

This trading game hasn't been to a group gaming session yet, and I don't think it can be played with two. It is very interesting, though. Perhaps if I got the shiny new version, it would see play faster.

I wanted to try an 18XX game, so I picked up 1835. Its still on my shelf, in shrink. Lack of interested opponents - and having Railroad Tycoon - have caused this one.

Was in with the purchase from Ogdred's auction. Its on the way, which is why I haven't played it. Price was right, and I'm a sucker for a good Pirate game. The depth/weight worries me for this one - I don't have many friends interested in complex games.
