In this, my first ever GeekList, I wanted to share with you my Holy Grail and find out from others what theirs is. Please add your Holy Grails and indicate why exactly they are your Holy Grail. What's hard about getting them, and what do you love about them?

Yes, there used to be a couple of GLs on this topic, but they were old, and not that much of a success. I'm hoping that more people (players?) will have found themselves to have a Holy Grail and are willing to share it with us.

My Holy Grail, my pretty little Holy Grail. Out of print, and only on E-bay over in the U.S.A. where shipping costs would kill me.

And I'd love to own this game with all the different tribes/nations/people you get to lead. I'm dying to try this out. It just sounds so perfect!

Currently, I think this would be mine. Not even sure why, but most of my others I've either gotten my hands on, (Republic of Rome, TP:S), or got reprinted (Hannibal, Successors, FtP, soon to be WtP sort of), so this is one I still have left. I had a bit of a "gap" in my AH buying when these were coming out, and missed them back then.

I read about this game in GAMES Magazine, when it was placed in their Top 100 games Buyers' Guide in 2002/2003. I should have ordered one right then, but I dillydallied.

Now, I can't get a copy anywhere. I've found a few people here on BGG who own the game, but most of them don't want to part with it. A few say they have it, but no rules or missing pieces or whatnot. It would be tough to play without rules and pieces, plus I like my games to have all their parts, no matter how trivial. So, I keep looking. It never comes up on eBay, either.

There was talk of a ZMan edition, but I haven't heard any news of that for a while--so if it does appear, it's likely to be a long wait.
I love minis boardgames, I've been trying to get this for a while with no luck.

My Holy Grail is not only a copy of this game (or any other Space Cruiser Yamato wargame - not the rather simple looking Be Forever Yamato Game ), but also a full English translation

But I'd settle for one of the AT VOTOMS games - with Translation...

I would give all my wisdom teeth for this baby. I've recently discovered the joys of train games, and am dying to try an 18xx... but we rarely have more than 2, so it's been hard. This is at the top of my list, but I have some co-grails I'd also except in this game's stead:

1825 Unit 2

1860: Railways on the Isle of Wight

Just got word that JKLM is reprinting this last one, hopefully by year's end, so you know I'll have mine preordered.

It's a toss up between TERRAIN VAGUE and SuperGang, both Ludodelire and very hard to find without paying an arm and a leg for it. Should you own one of these and be willing to part with it, have a look at my trades (contain some Grails in their own right) or let me know how much money you are willing to sell them for.

Also have a look at this list:http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/28444

Board Game: Basatiin al Djabriin
Well my real holy grail is a Hilinski crokinole board, but me and some BGG users are working on that. Those are practically not to be found in europe. and shipping will cost a fortune and a couple of heartaches wondering if the board arrives in good condition.

Wiz-war was another but thanks too SS i am proud owner of a great handmade copy.
I still have to play it though.

I am a sucker for beautiful games with great components.
I am also a sucker for economic games. (I acquired not to long ago Industrial waste,energie poker and die handler)

This is my grail game since it combines economics with a beautiful board and components. It is too expensive however and I would never order a copy.

I owned this game, once upon a time.

I was always fascinated by the Jacobite Wars and this game really seemed to convey the "feel" of The '45 without being too complex.

Several years ago when I got back into boardgaming (after a long hiatus), I looked through my collection for this one and discovered (to my horror!) that it was nowhere around to be found.

I don't remember selling, trading, or giving it away. And I NEVER just throw a game away, but it is gone. And thus began my search. It is out of print (for a looong time) and fairly rare (apparently).

There is a seller on Ebay flogging a mint copy. For $265.00(!!!).

Needless to say, I'm still looking.

Then I think I could buy like 6-8 games for this price. Someday though I will have this.

I'm a sucker for massive, epic wargames. This is the only volume of the series I'm missing.

Sadly, it's also the most expensive one out there, routinely selling for over $300 on eBay.

I would be happy to get Fief 2 as is, but would be really pleased by a modern re-edition as some parts are dated and the look of it is poor by today's standards. Still, the playing time was acceptable and the immersion total.

For Sale is the first on my list, but I don't think I'll be able to resist getting them all in the end.

Why is it a grail? Cost, for one. I mean, it's about $30 CDN a box, often for decks of cards. The second point is that my FLGS uses a different distribution network, so I'm not sure they'll be able to get it for me. If not, it means an online order, which, with shipping would push costs up to $40 CDN/game. surprise

I'm only making $10 CDN/hour at the moment. cry

This would be my grail game if any. Transamerica is my favourite game and this is its predecessor published by Winsome Games. There are only 7 owners listed here and I doubt that it will ever show up anywhere. All other games on my wishlist should be possible to get and are "just" a question of price which doesn't seem appropriate for a grail.

I would have to say that this game is my grail at the moment. I have wanted this for some time, but it is quite elusive as 7 own but only one (in Japan) who has it for trade.

Jati is another one, but I have to stumble across a copy as I'm not willing at this time to pay the prices it goes for on ebay.
