Hey y'all,

Evadimus here, sitting here, preparing a slow Labor Day weekend Friday at work, bored out of my brain, staving off my macroeconomics studies, thinking about the one thing I love almost as much as my girlfriend, my baby, and my chihuahua...

BOARD GAMES.

Okay, I don't almost love 'em as much, but I sure do like 'em a whole heckuva lot. And if you're like me, you'll just buy board games because, heck, maybe there's a good deal for a lot of 'em or maybe you just HAD to have it or maybe it completes a whole set of games or maybe you're just OBSESSED!

Whatever your reasons for buying the game, obsessive purchasers like myself are bound to have games that they own but haven't played.

So which owned and unplayed game do you own that ranks the highest on the BGG? And why HAVEN'T you played it yet? Maybe it was a bad purchase? Or maybe it's a long game that you just don't have time to play? Or maybe you just like it better in its shrink, an investment per se.

1. Board Game: Puerto Rico [Average Rating:8.05 Overall Rank:15]

As of this posting I own 99 games. Of the Top 10 I own all but two of the games listed: Twilight Struggle and Brass. The other eight that I have, I've only played seven, leaving just one that I haven't given a go at:

Puerto Rico.

It's not PR's fault really. Everyone says it's a great game; in fact, I've heard some say that it's one of the games that has changed all of gaming in general for better or worse. It was part of the Alea Big Box collection, #7 to be exact, designed by the proflic Mr. Andreas Seyfarth who, I believe, has a few SdJs to his name.

Even now I'm looking to expand my Alea collection. I currently own San Juan, Princes of Florence, Notre Dame, and Pallazzo. I've kept a close eye on Chinatown, Macao, and Louis.

But why haven't I played this game?

When I finally got into the gaming hobby hardcore, having neglected it for heavy drinking (sober eight months now) my friends had came, seen, and conquered the "land" that is Puerto Rico. Supposedly, there was a copy circulating the group and while it had a lot of popularity at first, the theme and mechanics quickly grew stale with the bunch. They began to see "the trick" to the game, and it became more like playing an elaborate Tic-Tac-Toe for them.

Again, this is their sentiments. I've never played the game. I've never even read the whole instruction manual all the way through.

So when I bought my copy off my FLGS' ding and dent shelf, I had no idea that this game had already seen the group's table as much as it had. Sadly, PR was quickly shelved and I would never get a chance to see what the game was all about and make my own assumptions.

The biggest tragedy is that I might actually LIKE the game more than they did. I know from past experiences with euros and my group that my tastes can differ much more than theirs. Power Grid, for example, is one of my favorite games to play, but the fellas in my group see it only as an exercise in doing mental math--"I feel like I'm balancing a checkbook playing this," noted one of my friends. I fear that it, too, may sit idly for some time.

Destined to collect dust and stare sadly through its box-side art, Puerto Rico sits at the top of my owned but not played list, currently ranked #2 on the BGG.

Troyes is the highest ranked game I haven't played yet, but to be fair, I just got it this week and plan on playing it tonight.

Otherwise, the highest ranked game I've had longer than 4 days that I haven't played yet is Quarto, at rank #531. I got it as a desk ornament for work, and it hasn't been used as a game yet (though I would definitely play if anyone here were interested).

Edit: Troyes has now been played, so Quarto now gets the headline.

I've even sold the first edition one I bought (and didn't play) for the deluxe version (which I haven't played).

I also own Power Grid and most (all?) of the published expansions...and haven't played it.

I got a used copy of this game as a Secret Santa gift a few years back, which I was grateful for, but I haven't gotten the courage to bring to the table yet. I've enjoyed playing Through the Ages, and now I'm not sure how much Civilization will bring that I can't already get through TTA. I'll bring it out one day, at that senior's home for gamers if not before.

Currently I have 346 games and 18 expansions including PnP games that haven’t been assembled but not including prototypes. Of all these I have 79 that are unplayed.

I won Nexus Ops in a drawing in 2007 and it’s still in shrink. I hear it’s a good game but there always seems to be something else I want to play more. Right now that game is my unplayed copy of Bermuda Triangle.

For the longest time, (cue Billy Joel) I refused to buy this game because I had my fill of deckbuilding in the 90's and early 00's when I was neck deep in a CCG addiction.

I succumbed to the hype late '09 and bought the base game, Intrigue, as well as the BGG Store promos.

I just couldn't bring myself to open it.

Then Secret Santa '09 rolled around and I got assigned a guy who badly wanted it, so I sent him everything. He was happy, I was happy...all was well.

Then a couple of months ago, I got a trade offer. I don't even remember what games were involved on either side of the proposal, but I felt the offer was a bit lopsided in his favor, so he said to peruse the rest of his For Trade list to see if I could find something to even the trade by $20-$30. I began to shake my head in dismay as I went down the list. He must have had at least several dozen games on the list, but I actually owned each and every one but one game. Dominion.

So I sucked it up and said, "What the heck..." and told him "Throw in Dominion and you got yourself a deal!" He did, so I now own it again!

I don't know what I'm going to do with it. I might actually love the game if I gave it a chance, but why? Why would I want to get hooked on another game that practically demands I go out and buy expansion after expansion? Sure, the base game alone is good, but why subject myself to that temptation?

So for now, it sits snuggled in between Kingsburg and Cosmic Encounter on one of my game shelves.

Sometimes...late at night when all the lights are dimmed and the children are tucked away in their beds and the missus is busy knitting, I swear I can hear the telltale sound of several riffle shuffles coming from within the box.

Cursed game.

I bought this because I really like Martin Wallace, but not 4 hour games. So this one seemed like a winner. It's ranked in the low 300s, but I just haven't gotten it to the table yet. I hate reading game rules, but in this case, I'm probably going to have to suck it up, unless I can get someone in my game group to do it for me. Maybe I'll take it to Pacificon this weekend and try to get it to the table.

I would be interested to hear thoughts if anyone has played this.

I wasn't planning on buying this but I had a chance to pick it up at an auction so I grabbed it based on reputation. That was four months ago, and I just haven't made the chance to play it. The gamers I know tell me I am going to love this game, and I believe them.


Strictly speaking my highest rated unplayed game is Dominion: Prosperity, but that's sort of an expansion and I've certainly played Dominion, and it was amy wife's Christmas present anyway, etc. Much less interesting story.

I've owned this for a few years now and it just hasn't made it to the table. The iconology has been a major speed bump. I'm in the middle of a trade for Macao though, and it looks like RftG may be involved...

San Juan gets played, and I pre-ordered the new GtR, so RftG is on it's way out...

Others in the Top 100:
Tichu - Have also owned this for awhile, but we don't play many card games.
Cyclades - Relatively new, but we have A LOT of new games in our gaming group and this one may take awhile until it comes out.

I just picked this up at a flea market a couple of months back (about 2 days before FFG announced the 2nd edition, in fact). Been too busy to put together a group to try it out. I hope to correct that before the holidays, though.

We bought this one at Essen in 2009 because it seemed interesting and it wasn't too expensive (around 20 euros iirc).

It remains unplayed because it's a longer game, and even though it can be played 2 player according to the box, the forums say it's better with more... but when there's more people, we haven't read the rules, so we'll play something else.

This is my contribution to the list. My secret Santa sent it to me last year and I still haven't been able to get it to the table yet. The biggest stumbling block has been the instructions. I've been muddling my way through them, but I don't have a real grasp of the rules yet.

Got it, checked it out as best I could by myself, and shoved it into the trade pile.

I desperately wanted to like Twilight Imperium: 3rd Edition, but the group pretty much hated it. I hoped StarCraft would be an improved version of that, but it doesn't appear to be. It just looks "meh."

Granted I just got this less then a month ago but I fear it will be a while before I can get it to the table. Seems a bit heavy for my groups...

Reading through the rules I would bet it has a similar feel to Agricola but actually let's your specialize (which I hate about Agricola).

This is my highest unplayed game. However, the reason it's unplayed has nothing to do with neglect. This is actually a custom V&V set that only has the maps and counters for the Pacific Theater (US/Japanese). Unfortunately, there are, as yet, no scenarios released for that theater.
So, it sits sadly alone on the game shelf, waiting for it's chance to shine.

I've been really good! I had to scroll past dozens of games before I came to one I haven't played. And in this case, it's a classic wargame from SPI that belonged to my father. I fully intend to play this (as well as Battle for Germany, another high-ranked SPI design) before the end of the fall. With real opponents and everything, not solo like I so frequently play wargames....

Technically, Heroscape Master Set: Rise of the Valkyrie, ranked at 140, is the highest ranked game I own and haven't played, but I have played Heroscape Master Set: Battle for the Underdark, so I skipped past the other Heroscape Master Set to Bridge.

I've wanted to try bridge for awhile, but I haven't had time to. The same goes for all of my other currently un-played games.
