Hi all,

I'm new to the community and I wanted to introduce myself.

I've always enjoyed board games, but I haven't followed the hobby seriously since school. Maybe that will change.

Also, there was a game I played maybe 20+ years ago that I'd like to hunt down. It was an city/urban planning game with wooden pieces, which was already old when I played it. One of my goals is to find that game again.

Welcome, Douglas! I can't help you with the board game you are seeking from 20+ years ago, but I'm sure plenty of other users can help you out. In the meantime, go get yourself some geek badges or an avatar to show some bling on BGG.

From another new user, welcome. I've been here a couple of weeks, and I've really enjoyed it.

Well, you've come to the right place to find that old game. If the people cant identify it...then maybe it was all a dream...

Hi Douglas,

was the game maybe Cathedral?

To find the game, it would probably be best to make a new thread with a title that states what you are looking for. That way, people who are good at/enjoy identifying games are more likely to see it and help you with it.

Welcome here on BGG and some hints.

Since you are new here, may be you missed that Danny Nelson/Sredni Vashtar has sent you the 30 GeekGold required to get your Avatar. This means that to honor his kindness you could get the avatar, declare him to be your first geekbuddy and exert your right to award him the Geek Citizenship Recognition. This last thing is quite new and don't think that is already present in the Guide To BoardGameGeek.

These are the first things that came in my mind to tell you, then have a good search for your game and when you find it report it on this thread, so we will be informed and learn which game it is.

P.S: To help you I've created the links to the pages in which you can find the explications of what are the things I've talked to you about.

Thanks Kathrin,

It wasn't Cathedral, but that game look interesting! I think I may spend a lot of time here.

Two last things that you can find useful. If you need to contact someone for direct information, you can send him a geekmail, you just have to click on the correct little envelope that you see under his id. If you want to be kept up to date on something (game, picture, file person, blog), you just have to subscribe to it. ninja

Hi and Welcome to BGG!

About the game you're looking for, there's a segment on The Dice Tower's Blender videos called Retro Board Game Corner that only talks about old games. It's awesome. So I wonder if that guy could help find the game you're talking about. Here's a link to the most recent video : http://youtu.be/LLDQXM-VqdE. You could contact the Dice Tower directly or ask in the video comments how to get in touch with the retro board games guy. Good luck!

Thank you for the welcome greeting.

The game I was looking (Newtown) was found in another post. The full search-saga is here: https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1525134/find-my-game-please...
