This is a list to see what you have been given or purchased yourself but have never actually played the game and why. Was it just bad and you were so disappointed, it was so cheap you had to have it. What's the most anyone has spent just to see the game sit on a shelf?

I got this one deadcheap on Magnus-spiele.de, for 10€ !!!
Problem is, I don't get all the rules. I really don't get the scoring with the commodoties chits. I thought I had all the rest figured out, but then I tried playing it online to see if it would explain some things, but it just got me more confused. I lost the bidding every round. Again and again. So now I'm even more confused. Don't know if this will ever hit the table....

Got it when it first came out and never had players

Catan rarely hits the table anymore and when it does nobody wants to add to it...

Really wanted to try the game and saw it for cheap once then didn't see it again. Once I did get it, I'm always with more than more person. So we play a game that isn't only a two player. Still want to try it. I think I'll try talking my wife into this tonight

I used to be big into Battletech back in the FASA days. I saw this game and loved the possibilities of turning my Battletech battles into huge wars. Never sat down and read the rules though, so it never got played. Now I'm just looking to get rid of it to make room for new games!

14. Board Game: Wallenstein (first edition) [Average Rating:7.50 Overall Rank:373]

We bought this in mid-December 2004, and despite hauling it to several group gaming sessions over the last 9 months, it has not hit the table. Sometimes people want to play things that take less time and seem easier to learn (especially if there are new people in the group), and sometimes a group wants to spend all day on a monster game. For instance, TI3, which my husband bought this spring, has been played not once but TWICE. But I digress.

Wallenstein is on the heavier side of what I usually play (I did not, for instance, join in on the TI3 marathons), but it looks so good - we are both positively itching to play it. We've punched everything out, set up and obligatorily played with the tower, read the rules... I think we're just going to have to schedule a get-together specifically for this game.

I bought this about 4 years ago from England on ebay for $110 not including shipping. The figures are still on the sprues and will probably stay that way. I mainly bought it since I previously purchased Space Crusade mint and unplayed for $45 + $40 s/h also from England. I though they would complement each other on the shelf. These two (among many others) will gather cobwebs. Is this normal or am I just insane?? Please advise.

A wedding present. We recently celebrated our first aniversary. All the other wedding present games got played, especially Runebound. This one? Um, no. Not ever. I read the rules and put it on the shelf, never to be opened again.

Can anyone say Candyland?

I thought the buying and selling aspect would make me want to play it. There always seems to be something I want to play more than this.

I think it's gotta be my love of THEME in a game. There's nothing calling out to me here from what most have said is a very good game.
