I am thinking of games I have owned that I got rid of before I had a chance to play them. Most of the time, it was because they were too much of a monster. I will list a few below. Add some more.

Bought this game because it had everything, including the kitchen sink, and seemed awesome. But never got the rules down at all. I wish I gave Lords a shot, but going solo with the rules didn't make it a successful mission to accomplish. I wish someone would do a German style game, with as much as there was in this, but streamlined.

400 Years of European history, and the kitchen sink? How could one go wrong. Well, the problem is that it WAS 400 years of human history, and the kitchen sink. I just never got the 70 something pages down, and I really wanted to play it.

Said I had too many German games, so dumped it at time. I wish I had tried it first. Maybe I will get a chance to play Kontor some day.

I had the lavendar box of King of Kings. I was mocked repeatedly by grognards in a local wargaming group for it, and never got to play it. So, I dumped it.

Yeah, I'm an idiot. I was just out of college and realized that coworkers were far less likely than students to rally around a game with a steep learning curve.

Besides, I thought it would be just as easy to re-buy as it was to sell...

I bought a copy of this at a yard sale for $3.00, then sold it on eBay for $37.00, but now sometimes I find myself regretting seeling it. The copy was prestine, never used, by me or anybody else.

Here is another game I got at one time. Managed to sort out the list of counters also, and then dumped it, never played.

I had only played Catan when I picked this game up from my FLGS. Because all my friends were hooked on Catan, I could never get them to learn/play this with me. Not being aware of BGG at the time, I had no idea what a great game it was. I can't even remember what I did with the game. I know that the game is available now. I'm sure I'll pick up a copy soon. But, I regret that we didn't learn to play it in those early days of gaming. This is especially true when I consider some of the not-so-great games that we wasted time with. Had I been a little more patient, it would likely have become a standard for us. I guess we'll just have to pick up a new copy and start making up for lost time.
