What wargame or wargames have you just gotten rid of? Please post your wargames that are newly out the door.

That is...

HOLD OFF UNTIL THEY ARE PHYSICALLY OUT OF YOUR POSSESSION.




Let's see what wargames you all got rid let go of this month!

None! Once in my possession, a wargame rarely leaves the bunker! I've acquired over 200 wargames over the years, and I've probably traded or sold less than half a dozen in all that time! My game room is like the Hotel California for wargames - they can check out anytime they want but they can never leave!

"Got rid of"?

I find the wording insulting for the wargames I have given away for free: over 450+ games in the last 10 years.

So I will not give any details in this topic to keep secret the names of the games implicated. devil

I keep the games that I buy. Music, on the other hand . . .

It's a great subject for a list. So far, nothing, but at the end of last month, I traded away the following--





I'm trying to tune my collection, as well as pick up games that I can potentially use in the classroom. I teach the French Revolution, and Hold the Line went in exchange for a second copy of Levee en Masse, while Warriors of God went for Liberte.

I gave away two:

1. Fire in the Lake The first and last COIN game I'll ever buy. I don't get the attraction of the system. No historical feel and boring beyond belief.

2. Labyrinth: The War on Terror, 2001 – ? I bought it originally because of its purpose-built solo option, but found it to be incredibly uninteresting.

Labyrinth is a great game, but I can't speak to the solo option. As a two-player game, though, it's the bee's knees.

Quite possibly, but the subject matter really doesn't do anything for me. It is one of the only times I have ever bought a wargame based on an interesting game mechanism, rather than the historical subject of the game. Never again!

Would love to get rid of some of my collection. If anyone sees anything of interest on my trade list, let me know.

I traded away Labyrinth as well, for much the same reason.

Looked legit and I'm usually up for some Market Garden, but my old peepers cannot cope with the tiny counters with even tinier text & symbols. Too bad.

I let it go for the same reasons, and I am a continual sucker for Market Garden games. I also found the rules nowhere near to being the clear and easy that I expected, given the fanfare.

Heh heh. You said "taint".
Now imagine the taintiest taint in all of taintdom, perched atop a fat neck, with ridiculous nonsense spewing out from between it's taint-beard: that's Berg.

I also recently got rid of Europe Engulfed, with an eye towards replacing it with Triumph & Tragedy as part of my quest to go smaller and quicker with my collection.

Friedrich (2nd Ed) in Wargames Paying It Forward thread.

EDIT: a decent game; had ordered a second copy of the same edition by mistake, then picked up the 3rd edition, so ended up with 3 copies. One copy went to a good home in Wargamers Paying it Forward, and I traded away the second copy recently. Still have the 3rd edition.

It is well that wargames are so terrible, lest we should grow too fond of them.

Kerry Anderson sells a readable counterset.

Kerry's counters are very good - they make this otherwise excellent game playable.

Reconquista and To The Last Man. I'm trying to clear out games that I've either played but realize won't get many more spins or ones that I am unlikely ever to get to the table.

LOL. Labyrinth is my number one game overall.

My top 5 I will never ever sell:

1. Labyrinth: The War on Terror, 2001 – ?
2. Conflict of Heroes: Eastern Front – Solo Expansion
3. Eldritch Horror
4. D-Day at Omaha Beach
5. Ambush!

I will never understand the human species really

BTW: I find this a fascinating thread. This should become a massive number of posts with all that unplayed stuff in our closets.

The balance between this thread and the "new purchases of the month" will give us an idea how many TONS we stock in our basements and attics.

To The Last Man! is one of my favourites, I am surprised to see it on the list. I would beg you to play one more game of it before letting it go (if you still have it).

It is all about different tastes

I traded Navajo Wars last month. I did like the game but for some reason I'm not that very found of solo designed games. The strange part is that I do like playing solo but I enjoy it more to play both sides of a 2player game than playing against a "game system"

I also traded most of my COIN games this year and just kept one. I just found them not different enough to keep them all.

Does "refreshing" the old editions - properly sold - with the new ones count?
