While click around on BGG today, stoicly avoiding all attempts that people have made to get me to actually perform work while at work, I noticed for the first time that "Recently Viewed" has a little "all" button underneath it. I wanted to see just how far back it went, so I went to the end to see what I could find, and thought it might be interesting to see what other people have as their "oldest game in recent history" Post 'em up and try to let us know what you were thinking at the time!

Apparently I was investigating this back in December. I remember it got a little bit of hype, and I was pretty interested, but on the annual "no purchases for myself until after Christmas" rule. One of the other guys in the group got a copy for Christmas, we played once or twice, and then it just failed to hold interest in the face of games gotten as gifts.

Mine is from Dec 16, 2009. I think I was looking at it because it was either in an auction or a MT and I was evaluating it for my desire to obtain it.

I think I stumbled upon Erosion when I was looking at alternatives to Glory to Rome, which was out of print at the time.

Board Game: New Moon
Sat Dec 19, 2009 8:21 am

I was ordering games on-line for Christmas and wanted one for free shipping. The Werewolves of Miller's Hollow works well for students the day before Hallowe'en, so I thought I could try this expansion next time.

I wonder if game publishers and retailers know how much business is generated through BGG's game listings? I guess Amazon might find out but I worry about my favourite on-line games store (FOLGS?).

Don't ask me why.

This dates back to the beginning of December 2009.

I received the game as a gift, but haven't played it yet, even though I've played Vinci a number of times at found it enjoyable.

I think this must have corresponded to the giveaway contest they had for this game. I always do my research!

This is the second oldest entry, no idea why I clicked on it.

Actual the oldest entry is the very mysterious

"N/A

What could this lost gem have been?

This was my "oldest" viewed game from last Dec. I do not remember why I was looking at it at that time.

Since then I won a copy at the Ashland (OR) Library Game Day which was donated by Funagain Games (thanks Funagain!).


Another question to ask (and it might be the same answer for everyone - I just don't know) is how many pages of games are in your history since your oldest view?

Mine was 12 pages long.

I had just found this game in a Salvation Army store near here. I bought it for something like .99 cents and was looking up info on it and also adding it to my Game collection. Turned out to be a so so game with a bit of strategy and a bit of luck. Sort of like what fishing is really like for me normally.

I remember somebody telling me that this game was good, and it looks ok on bgg. When I went to my FLGS, I remember thinking it was too expensive, I don't remember what I bought instead on that trip, I think possibly Pandemic.

I still haven't played Wasabi, and I probably never will unless somebody I know buys it.

Well, I don't know why I was looking at it. I don't think I ever wanted it, but I could be mistaken. Anyway, it was on the 19th page from December 16.
