I'm a sucker for bargains when buying games and tend to buy games that seem great in my mind, but can't seem to get to the table. Here is my ongoing list of these games. If a game does end up getting played, I'll be sure to note that later.

I bought this a while back because it was on sale and everyone told me I would like it. Unfortunately, the complexity of the rules and number of components makes it unlikely to be enjoyed by the people I usually play with. I really do hope to play this eventually, but for now just the thought of it is a thorn in my side.

Edit: traded

I bought this on clearance at my FLGS. I'm not really sure why, other than the fact it was 75% off or something. The game may actually be good, but I may never know.

I bought this at a huge discount a while back. I used to play with someone else who had a copy and figured it would be cool to have my own. However, with all the other/better games out there, I doubt I'll play this gain.

Clearance at my FLGS. Looked like a fun abstract and I like stuff by the same designer. Because it's simple, I may give it a quick try, but that hasn't happened yet.

I like the theme and components, but games that require 3 are hard to get to. I usually like to test out game with my wife first before springing them on others so this may not make it. Shameful, I know...

This is supposed to be a good 2-player game. I'm not sure what I was thinking when I bought it though because the theme doesn't do it for me.

One of my most expensive purchases (even though it was on sale - Tanga). The box was dinged on the corners and this has left a bad taste in my mouth so I haven't even unwrapped it yet. I bought it for the theme, but the rules seem overwhelming. Maybe someday I'll get to it.

Update: finally played - I still like the theme, but it seems overly complex

Purchased the Draco Mundis version. The artwork looks pretty cool and it should be simple enough, but I still haven't gotten to it yet.

Bought this at a thrift store. Seems a little overwhelming and I'd have to really immerse myself and build up enough interest for the other player(s).

I really wanted to try this one out. Part of the rules seem really straight forward, but the combat seems tedious. I hope to get to it sometime, but the effort involved has prevented me so far.
