When I buff up my wishlist for trading, I try to find games that are maybe 4+ years old that still hold up.

I've gotten Carson City, Tikal and Goa through trades and I'm super happy with them but I probably wouldn't have known to even look without doing a lot of digging.

Is there a list out there of games that aren't the hotness or cult of the new that just should be on a collector's shelf?

Go to the page of one of your favorite games. Either look under Classifications and look at games that share mechanisms or are in the same family or go all the way to the bottom of the page and there will be geeklists that that game is a part of

Use "Adv. Search" at the top of this page to find games of a single year, or of a range.

Not exactly what you asked about, but there's a podcast called The Long View which focuses on games that have remained relevant over time. (at least that was the initial premise... it deviated to 'quick looks' somewhere along the way).

Even if you don't want to listen to a full episode, you could inspect the episode titles for some games to look up.

Dunno how he got it by browsing the site, but you can edit the link he provided, delete the TWrecks at the end and replace it with your own username... voila!

Just select my geek -> profile in the menu. Then go to tab stats, and click the link games owned by year. Et voila.

Great. Now I have a new obsession: filling the holes in my collection by having at least 1 game from every year.

Mark, not a geeklist, but Dice Tower has been doing a series of videos called "40 Years of Great Games" with each video covering a few years (1976 up through 1994) or 1 year (1995 onward). They're up to 2002; no idea how far they intend to go but hopefully right up through 2015. Might be worth a look.

Somewhere around here there is at least one thread I recall that was initiated for declaring how many continuous years there are in your collection.

Not too shabby - only 5 years missing since my birth-year of 1966
