I thought this geek list would be up already, somewhere... I looked around, admittedly not too hard and didn't find anything. So this is a list of games I want to see Collector's Editions for various reasons. The number one reason being nicer components. Obviously money would be no object.

Please feel free to add games and what you want to see in the Collector's Editions.

This was the article that inspired me to write this list: http://boardgamegeek.com/article/3421550#3421550

I thought it fitting to start with this game.

This is a pretty decent game with the most generic, crappy components I have ever seen.

I own this game and the components are nice, but they could be some much more. For those who have played this game, they know how visual this game is as far as the components and how much it adds to the game. A Collector's Edition of this would just be awesome.

I personally know a bunch of people who have pimped their own sets out really nicely. I just want to see what designers can come up with if money was not a factor.

This may be silly, but I just want all the units to talk. Just imagine as you line up your skirmishes and prepare to flip over your combat cards, your units shout, "FOR AUIR!!!" Or snare viciously, or whatever the terrens say. That would be cool.

I know this just came out, but I already want a Collector's Edition. I want a bigger board where I can put minitures. Totally not practical, but a geek wants what he wants.

How about instead of a board there was a small ship with little rooms you could move your little figures around in and then push a button and it would make sounds. Hardcore fans would buy this, you know who you are! You wish you were a skin job.

This is the one game where the Collector's Edition would have a smaller board than the original. What this game is really missing are two extremely high powered follow spots, the kind they use in movie premires. I want two of them swing back and forth creating large columns of light in the sky. Now that's class!

I'd love an upgraded version of Puerto Rico. I think the building tiles are just so bland compared to many other current games.

This time-tested classic deserves the Onyx Edition treatment if anything does, especially now that it is part of the Hasbro stable. The most recent edition, apart from the stock cards, was pretty sad, in terms of component quality.

This is another one that's been absorbed into the burgeoning Hasbro portfolio, though I don't believe they've shown any indications of any kind of movement to do anything whatsoever with it as yet.

My fantasy version of this game has a single-piece hardwood board (it could be something plain and elegant, like rock maple, or a rare and endangered exotic). The pegs and bridges would be machined out of metal (with the bridges fabricated so as not to be flimsy and easily bent), with contrasting finishes: perhaps chrome-plated vs. black anodized. There would be a felt-lined case with recesses for storing the bits, or, better yet, drawers located under, and on opposite sides of, the board itself.

Well, a fella can dream, can't he?
