You buy them, trade for them, and you can't wait to play. You're already looking forward to the next family gathering or game group session or even just the weekend. But, it doesn't make it to the table. Time goes by; dust collects. You wonder if you should sell it -- but no, you still want to play it!

This looked so cool; even my wife thought so. I even went to the trouble of asking Greg Schloesser for the Westbank variant, printing the cards he sent me, and LAMINATING them. 15,16 months later -- and it's not been played. Maybe later, when my son comes of age -- I hope!

Also purchased with progeny in mind. Has sentimental value, too, I spent 3 months living and working in Yellowstone (the only way to experience the park). I knew I wouldn't get to play it for a long time; but I didn't want copies to become as scarce as Ivory-billed woodpeckers.

I see this as a two-player game my son and I will thoroughly enjoy. It's the kind of game I can't resist. Maybe I'll find someone to give it a whirl with me in the meantime. Hope... ah, something.... eternal, right?

I love deduction games. When I was a kid, some neighborhood friends had this game -- and right away I thought it was way cooler than Clue. My first eBay purchase -- two years ago. Since then, I can't convince anyone to try it, although maybe I haven't tried hard enough. Too many other games to play, you know?

Can you believe it? It's just a matter of time, though. My gaming buddies play it (Roger has the new AH version). I haven't gotten a chance, though. In due time.

Unlike its brother Acquire, nobody in my gaming group has heard of it, except my buddy Jim. Jim knows of it because I got a second copy off of eBay to give to him. He's played it with his parents, who like it. But my copy? Hey, when I'm with family, Bohnanza or Password or Cosmic Encounter or Settlers or Risk or Cranium ends up on the table. When I'm with my gaming buddies, they'd rather draw blood. Maybe one of these days, though. Hey, they already play Acquire!

OK, this one I will sell or trade away. I'm sure it's rewarding but I'm not jazzed enough about it to fight for its introduction, when I'd rather introduce something else perhaps!

This is just a matter of time, too. My wife's family enjoys Mancala, so one of these times, it will come down. I'm not Mancala-crazy myself, though -- so I rarely mention it, because I'm usually lobbying for something else. Er, why did I get this game in the first place? Oh yeah, that's right, it came as part of a package deal with Acquire on eBay.

I still remember the day I bought this in February 2001. I brought it to a few of our game nights, and it almost got played once.

I won't give up on it, though. Maybe this one wouldn't be that hard to do PBeM.

Another spring 2001 purchase. No sign of it hitting the table yet. Maybe I should sell it for big bucks on eBay.

I bought it off Amazon for $2.99. At that price, I also got it as a gift for a good friend. Maybe we should play it against each other. I wonder if his set is still in shrink. Mine might as well be.

Again, just a matter of time as children are added and grow older. I'm eager to play this -- seems fun.

It was a few bucks at the closest thrift store. I'm kind of a Clue fan, so I mostly got it for the collectibility. Seems like a game that you can watch would have an easier time getting played than most, though.

Oh yeah, another one I haven't gotten to play yet. I got this in June 2001 -- but it hasn't found the table yet. I'm confident it will hit the table, though. The whole city planning aspect appeals to me, and from what I hear, it's a strong game. Just a matter of time...
