We see plenty of talk about dead CCGs worth buying/playing, but not much talk about dead CMGs. Let's make a list of dead CMGs that transcend their marketing and still hold up today as fun, well-designed games that are worth tracking down.

Perhaps not the most balanced game, but one of the most fun.

More of a boardgame than a mini's game, this is a clever and fun area control game. Still relatively cheap online.

Stumbled upon this for cheap, remembered a positive review and thus bought it. Never regretted this one
Cool mini's and a cool abstract game to back it up.

This is the one, you will not find a better game IMHO. Of course you will be hard pressed to find one that will take up so much room, and now the prices are just silly crazy to much.. I am amazed Hasbro is not smart enough to just make the terrain and sell it on its own - they have a gold mine there and no one working the mine I say!

I loved the MW pen and pencil, and was thrilled when they released the video games.

When I walked into my FLGS one afternoon, I was intrigued when I saw this being played.
I watched for a bit, and when I found out they were having a "tournament", I bought in and played.
I came in second, even though I was just learning the rules.
That got me hooked.

While I have since divested myself of the collection (moving so I sold it to one of the guys in the group), I have fond memories of it.

Too bad this got dropped.

Not only my preferred CMG, it's also by far my preferred dungeon crawler.

I also like this one.
Granted the mini's are BIG and the paintjob could have been better, but hey it's better than doing it myself.

Uses the Doom-Dice mechanic.

A Star Wars game that doesn´t rely on the license alone to be sold, this is actually a good game.
Add to that the cool looking minis and the license and you got something really good and fun.
I really love the bigger minis, while very competive players often avoided them, it´s really something that fits Star Wars and seperates it from many other mini games.
Concepts like commander effects, uniques, followers and tons of special abilities really makes this a game of it´s own and not an excuse to pushStar Wars minis around.
