My Unplayed Games

As a result of BGG.CON and secret Santa (yes I openned my Secret Santa package, I am a bad person) I now have way too many unplayed games. I typically never have more than one or two unplayed games as I usually only acquire one game at a time and play it immediately.

I am now teeterring on the brink between being a game player and a (gasp) game collector. I do not want games on my shelf for the mear fact of acquiring more games, or because they may go out of print.

So, this is my attempt to organize my unplayed games and give the BGG community a chance to influence the order I play them in. If there is a game on this you think I should put at the front of the list or simply ship off as trade bait unplayed, speak up!

As I play the games below, I will come back to this list to add my thoughts of the game.

Status: Played. Did not like. On to the trade list it goes.


This is probably at the top of my "want to play" list. I picked it up via the online flea market and got it on my first day of the con.

My friend Jeff loves this game and we were "that close" to playing it at the con about a half dozen times, but some other game always managed to get in the way and we found ourselves playing something else.

Finally, on the last day of the con I commited myself to playing it, but by then Jeff was tired of me tempting him with a favorite game only to cruelly yank it away in a bait and switch and he said he was no longer interested.

Another Secret Santa gift (I also received Troyes, which I have played so it will not appear on this list). Will read the rules today and either this or Macao will get played this weekend.

Status: Played. I like. Needs to see more table time.

This unplayed game has been in my collection longer than any of the below. I picked it up in a local game store auction along with Survive and Chaos in the Old World. Those two have seen play, but poor Louis lies neglected on the shelf. I took it with me to the Con witht he best of intentions, but alas, it did not hit the table.

Rules have been read and the next time I have 3 or 4 players, I will try me best to get this one played.

Status: Still unplayed. Looking unlikely to get played at this point. Will probably trade/sell. shake


I had a rough start with Wallace games. My first three were all duds for me: London, Rise of Empires and Struggle of Empires. I was about to swear off Wallace forever until someone introduced me to Empires of the Ancient World, which is quite enjoyable and then Steel Driver, which I love. Perikles has always looked interesting to me so when I had a chance to acquire it at the con through the online flea market, I jumped at the chance.

Status: Played. I am terrible at it. But love it. Want to play this more.


I love Through the Ages...online. Playing it on a table is painful to me and that is how I feel about most of Vlaada's games. I traded my copy of TTA away some time ago as I would far rather play it online. I regret the trade in that the table top version is much easier to use to teach the game. I traded away Galaxy Trucker for Dungeon Lords recently.
Galaxy Trucker was ok for me, but after playing it 5-6 times, I didn't really see myself bringing it back to the table and I have no space for games that don't get play.
So, what is keeping me from bringing this to the table? Well, it's a Vlaada game and comes with all the baggage that entails. Too many components, too many rules and caveats. This was another game I was hoping to learn at the con, but it didn't happen. I do have friends who know it and love it so I am certain it will get played soon and I won't have to teach it to others on my first play, which is a big plus.

Status: Played. Glad to have the variety in racing venues.


I have and enjoy Formula D. Until recently i only had the base track that comes with the game and it was getting a bit stale. Plus, if you have multiple tracks you can stage a racing circuit for a game session. At the con, I picked up this as well as Chicago/Sebring, which got one play at the con.

The next time I have 6 or more, I plan to have a 4 track racing circuit with:
Monaco
Sebring
Hockenheim
Valencia

Should be good light fun!

I have had my eye on this one for quite some time. I picked this up at the con as well and will have to wait for the right crowd as I know this one is a bit too meaty for most of my regular gamers.

Status: Still unplayed. Not sure why I even bought this.


I have had a Tichu deck in my collection about as long as Louis XIV. I picked it up at my FLGS after an open game day and it was more of an attempt to support the store than any burning desire to play the game. Still, I have heard good things about Tichu and am interested in learning it. After reading the rules and watching some video tutorials I was more than confused. I brought this to the con as well in the hopes of having it taught to me, but again, time was not my friend at BGG.CON.

The theme is intriguing, plus it was $5. Not high on my to play list at the moment.

Free game at the con. No burning desire to play it, but it looks like a game I can play with my daughter, so I imagine it will get played sooner than most games on this list.

Stauts: Played 3-4 times. Was not interested enough to break out any of the expansion decks. Already sold my more valuable decks. The rest will be traded/sold soon.


I have to admit this was more of an investment than a game I have any desire to play. Picked it up at the con along with 7 or 8 expansions (including Pillar) for $45. Too good of a deal for me to pass up. Turns out most of the expansions are still in shrink.

Got this to play with my son over Christmas later this year. It got me over the free shipping limit for an order with Coolstuff and I knew I would be picking it up eventually so...it remains unplayed until December.
