Aka "Ambivalent 'keepers' list"

Do you have games that you like, but don't love; won't trade because you know you'd miss them, but wouldn't replace them if they were stolen because they are just not worth it to you? Games that you could "let go of"? Please give your reasons...

Meuterer got me thinking about this, because since mine went "missing" (sold to a friend), I have been itching to replace it.

The ultimate in good game ambivalency!

I own Memoir 44, and yet I can't bring myself to trade Battle Cry. But if it were stolen, I wouldn't replace it -- why bother with such a good "Sequel"?

I rate this game a 9! But I have a couple other Carcassonnes, and if this one went missing, knowing that there are even more Carcassonnes on the way (that I, like a fool, will acquire), I wouldn't replace this.

Coda is a great piece of design and one of my most played games Summer 2004 -- yet I can't see myself making the effort to replace this. Can't put my finger on it, but I know the boring black-and-white components don't help. Strange how I can like a game, play a game, own a game, and not care about replacing it.

Toom uch fun to want to trade, yet I have played it enough that I just don't think I would try and replace it. Big groups are getting harder and harder for me to get together, and ther are just so many new games to try!

Hera & Zeus is tricky: with LOTR Confrontation and Blue Moon, I get similar games that I would rather play. But Hera & Zeus is fun enough that I don't want to trade it. So, though I almost never find time to play it, I keep it. And if it went missing, I'd have this sense that I really should own this game -- just in case. The multiple vctory conditions are what make this game a keeper for me.

Odin's Ravens is a great game, and I still try and play it fairly often. And yet, if it went missing, replacing it doesn't seem like something I'd do. I am not too fond of the artwork, and, like Hera & Zeus, there are just too many other 2-player games out there I am playing -- with more on the way (Jambo!)

Big groups games are keepers for me, because it's hard to find good ones, and yet, for some reason, I don't think I would replace Saboteur. I hope I don't lose it, because it is very simple, very non-gamer, quite fun -- but replace it? That costs money, and big groups games rarely get played...

If I could get a few more plays of Terra in, I think I'd like it. Given the unique co-operation of the game, why would I trade it? But replacing it is another matter. It's not a lot of "game", and not for every gaming occasion, and it is better with more. So probably not replace.

When teaching new players, we use Settlers. My advanced friends only want to play Cities and Knights. I can't trade this though as it "completes my collection."

(Includes &cetera) Probably more money than I'd spend given the number of times I've played, but I will NOT give this one up just in case I can get it on the table.
