Last year was the first time I created this list and it proved to help me and my friends to focus on games that needed to be played in my collection.

My buying habits have slowed down significantly since my first two years on BGG so I'm hoping that I can reach a point where I will no longer have new games sitting around unplayed for over a year.

As stated before, these are all games that I admire and glad to own. Unfortunately, one reason or another something has prevented me from playing them to determine if they are a keeper or not.

So here is my list of games that have been owned for more than a year without a single play. If you have any pointers on how to get the game played easier, I'd be interested in hearing that as well.

How Acquired: BGG Chain of Generosity

Why I own?:
1) Hand-made by abrannan
2) Introduction to 18XX games.

What's preventing it from being played?: 3 hour playing time. Very hard to get my game group to commit to something that long. Kids are also a tad too young for this one yet.

How Acquired: Purchased from Treefrog

Why I own?:
1) Martin is my favorite designer.
2) Don't have many deep three player games.

What's preventing it from being played?:
1) I have quite a few unplayed games designed by Martin because I've actively been trying to collect them. Since this one only plays three players, it has fallen to the bottom of the pile of his games I've worked on to get played.
2) His games take a bit of time for me to absorb the rules and get them some table space in our group.

How Acquired: Math Trade

Why I own?:
1) Somewhat a classic that is OOP.
2) Hans im Glück area control game with short playing time.
3) Rich looking game.
4) Enjoy historical story of Attila.

What's preventing it from being played?:
1) Not really sure. Other (usually new) games just seem to get in the way.
2) Hasn't generated a lot of interest in my group or on BGG.

Played July 2010: Played a sample game with my kids and then took to my game group the following week. Excellent area control/economic game. I lost badly so I need to think about strategy on this one a bit more.

How Acquired: Bought from Boards and Bits

Why I own?:
1) Picked up all expansions in Tanga deal.
2) Generally like Reiner Knizia's games.

What's preventing it from being played?:
1) Wife is not a fan of the art.
2) Magic (MTG) players consider this a poor substitute.
3) Game and expansions are still in shrink. Therefore, I'd like to play someone else's copy first.

How Acquired: First Tanga purchase.

Why I own?: Cheap

What's preventing it from being played?:
1) Requires 3 players minimum.
2) Nobody in my game group is interested.
3) Abstract concepts in this one are still above my kids level.

Played on February 4, 2010. Pretty fun game that I probably won't be looking to trade anymore. A real brain burner though.

How Acquired: Math trade. Traded extra copy of Bang!

Why I own?:
1) Other people I know consider this an excellent two player game.
2) Game was going out OOP when acquired.

What's preventing it from being played?:
1) Some of the art/characters offended my wife because my 7 year old son chose this game to learn. She wasn't too happy to have to explain what the mistress and prostitute characters in this game.
2) Never took to game night because supposedly it becomes more chaotic the more players you add.

How Acquired: Purchased from Boards and Bits

Why I own?:
1) Classic game that was OOP when I joined the hobby. When the reprint happened, I quickly purchased one.
2) Worker placement and civilization game that appeals to my interest.

What's preventing it from being played?:
1) Probably the playing time. In 2009, I had the game along ready to go on our big game days with fresh player aids. Other games were selected instead.
2) Familiarity with the rules. There are a lot of little things to learn/explain to get this played. Should probably try it out on my kids first.

How Acquired: Purchase from ThoughtHammer

Why I own?:
1) Decided that C&C Ancients would be the set I'd purchase for the C&C system.
2) Acquired a ThoughtHammer gift certificate that was burning a hole in my pocket.

What's preventing it from being played?:
1) Stickering - Finally finished last year.
2) Rules - I've played Memoir, but will need to put in some effort to learn this system. Shouldn't be to hard.
3) Opponent - I'm sure my wife would play this if I made a point of it. However, I've been hoping to play this one with one of my sons.

Played first game on May 3, 2010. Game was called early because we ran out of time. However, it did serve as a good learning game. This has allowed me to go back to the rules and brush up on some other things that didn't quite make sense. Now I'm ready to play this, but just have to find the time. My kids are always asking to play Magic instead.

How Acquired: Math trade.

Why I own?:
1) Fantasy theme.
2) Other people have recommended this game.

What's preventing it from being played?:
1) Low ratings on BGG.
2) Requires some modification to the dragon riders to prevent accidental movement.
3) Some components are still in shrink-wrap.

07/01/2010 - Played with the guys at PHU. Turned out to be a 5 player game which dragged on way too long. I'll try it again with my kids to see if it goes faster.

Why I own?:

2) Was listed on my Wishlist because I wanted to acquire soon because of its OOP status.
3) Beautiful components and interesting theme.

What's preventing it from being played?:

1) Members of my game group dislike this game and veto it.
2) It is implemented online, thus, others don't want to take the time to play it face-2-face.

Played with my kids on 03/21/2010. Excellent game that I wouldn't want to play just online.

How Acquired: BGG Market Place

Why I own?:
1) OOP - I was on a OOP kick for a while. My reasoning was to get some of them before they became ultra-rare.
2) Stefan Dorra - Enjoyed many of his other games, so I took a chance.

What's preventing it from being played?:
1) Its still in shrink - I paid $50 for this game. Now its is pushing $100. I don't want to sell it, but I don't want to open it either. Thus, I'm waiting for an opportunity to play someone else's copy. That hasn't happened yet.

How Acquired: Math Trade

Why I own?:
1) Supposed to be a good Clue replacement.
2) Received in a local Math Trade as a significant trade-up.

What's preventing it from being played?:
1) Seems to be a bit too complicated for my family yet.
2) Members of my local game group don't seem too interested. One of them disliked it.

Updated: Played first time on February 18. Taught by Josh (Thank You!). Immediately played with family the following weekend. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed this one. Excellent game.

How Acquired: Purchased in Newspiel sale.

3) Sale price was very cheap.

What's preventing it from being played?:
1) Requires exactly 5 players to play.
2) Its at the back of my game collection. Out of sight, out of mind.

07/22/2010 - Played 5 player game with guys at PHU. It was a lopsided victory for me. Granted, there is some luck in the cards, but I'm hoping that there is more tactics involved in my victory.

How Acquired: Math Trade

Why I own?:
Considered this a good story building game for my kids.

What's preventing it from being played?:
Waiting for my kids to grow into this one. Additionally some of the story events are a bit dark. They should be old enough now to give this a try in 2010.

How Acquired: Math trade.

Why I own?:
1) Football theme.
2) Middle child loves to play dice games.

What's preventing it from being played?:
1) A tad too much complexity for my son. He should be O.K. now.
2) Game is a two player game. Hard to find that one-on-one time with my kids now that they can all play games.
