This is a new challenge to myself to play some of those games that have been just sitting on my shelf unplayed. My goal is to get at least 8 of these games onto the table before one year has elapsed.

Wish me luck!

Why is this so difficult to get my group to play? Rated in the BGG top 40, you'd think everyone would be jumping at the chance. I've played one 2-player game and I want more!

I totally dig this game. I need more. I've played the first few tutorial missions a couple of times and really want to get into this more deeply. Finally, a cooperative game I don't hate.

Only one play, but it takes the idea of Dominion and puts a theme squarely on it.

One of the great games of our hobby, but it hasn't been on the table in years. Bring it back!

This is a direct-conflict euro game, a fact which makes it hard to find a group willing to play it. Euro folks think its a wargame. Wargamers think its a euro. Nobody will play it. I'm going to lobby hard to find someone who will give it a go.

Similar to Bushido in that it is not embraced by eurofolk or wargamers. Its actually more about diplomacy than fighting...I think.

I loved the original Imperial and even got to participate in the WBC tourney in 2007, or was it 2008? Played this one once and it seems to have addressed some of the issues of the first.

Definitely not for AP players. This game is very much a logic puzzle. I love the tri-temporal effects.

I am hoping the release of the expansion this summer will get this back on the table. I really enjoyed playing it.

Lots of cool minis! Tyranids v. Space Marines. Non-symmetrical forces. Marines are limited by a timer. Bugs takes their time.

OK, I know this one has its problems, but the theme was just so darned cool! Blade Runner type setting of many different goals. You might be setting someone up for the crime, or perhaps managing the conspiracy.

Martin Wallace 2004 game that IS embraced by wargamers. I really like the mechanism of forcing your enemies into alliances.

It's an adventure game. It's not about winning. I just love the experience. Just picked up the Hero Pack.
