Stepping out on the road is a dangerous business. You have to keep your feet under you, or before you know it you'll be swept off to who knows where!

Perikles sits unplayed on my shelf. As it turns out, a 3-hour game that requires more than 2-players is a bad purchase category for me.

I also got Settlers recently, but it was part of a package deal, and I'm hoping to trade it for something more fun rather than open it.

War of the Ring (First Edition)
Imperial
Accused! Getting Away With Murder?

War of the Ring and Accused will be played before I move to Australia for 8 months and Imperial just needs to be patient , when I return to the Netherlands and my games I think it popped out of its box by itself

It has probably moved further north from the box, in to my home

This ones I got this Christmas, and still waiting to play them:

Agricola
Aqua Romana
Around the World in 80 Days
Beowulf: The Movie Boardgame
Great Wall of China
Mystery of the Abbey
Thief of Baghdad, The
Werewolves of Miller's Hollow

Fortunately I got to play some new ones like Roma and Mr. Jack (both have been great so far)

These ones are not new, but I've yet to play them (gathering dust in my shelf):

Carcassonne
Clans
Jungle Speed

And this one gets the record. I own it since early 90s and never got to play it.

Republic of Rome, The

In this same category I could include Civilization (AH), which I own since before that and have only played it once :-(.

Jesus.

PS: when I was searching for a microbadge to buy I was undecided, until I saw the "too many games owned but not played".

Rule changes for tonight's game:-
Avatar
mbmbmbmbmb

Considered recent buys/requested Christmas presents:-

Vineta.
Robo Rally.
Dorn.
Khronos.
Pillars of the Earth.
Tribune.
Sputnik.

Impulse buys out of the FLGS bargain bin:-

Thief of Baghdad.
Architekton.

Also a little older but still unplayed, Memoir '44 (+ Air pack + Pacific Theatre).

That said, quite often I have bought games without any direct intention of playing them in short term - mainly because I know they won't appeal to my wife. What I'm trying to avoid when I do this is sinking feeling that accompanies the realisation that the game you've had your eye on for a while but not quite gotten around to buying suddenly goes out of print...

Age of Steam
Age of steam expansion #2 #3 & #4
Hold the Line
Hold the Line expansion
Ultimate werewolf: Ultimate edition
Galaxy trucker
shadows over Camelot Merlin company
Princes of Florence
Origin: how it all began
History of the World
a few others I can't even remember

Still have not play Die Macher (over a year old)

and countless other games in the collection that have not been tried out yet.

It is an addiction to buy new games. I want the collection to be "perfect" one for all occasions and player interest. I don't know how to quite but I sure need to learn.


Take care,

Michael


P.S. anyone want to come over and play a few games.

NONE!

(Unless you count Formuła 1, which I won at a convention a few months ago, but didn't intentionally choose or buy.)

The 4 Christmas games in our household (YINSH, Quads, Pylos, Dominion) have all seen a lot of play. (Indeed, we are playing a game-each-day January tournament with just those 4 games.)

(Thanks again, Secret Santas, for YINSH and Quads!)

Hell, I've got games that I purchased almost two decades ago that haven't been played yet and I still purchase. :)

I no longer purchase games with any expectation of playing them soon. I usually purchase hoping to play in either of the next two upcoming Gatherings.

Only one - Roma, but I'll play it soon; I can't afford not to play my games.

I got eight new games over the past 30 days and have been fortunate to play six of them multiple times already. The other two The End of the Triumvirate and Chicago Express haven't hit the table yet. It so happens I'll be playing Chicago Express tonight so I'm not doing too badly. I also recently got one expansion, Railways of Europe, that I have not yet played.

Ticket to Ride: The Card Game, Steel Driver and After the Flood

Recently reacquired DungeonQuest and Battlecars through eBay. Haven't played either of those for about 20 years.

I'll get to them eventually - I've just to got to wait a few years until my kids are bit older ...

Unplayed:
Caylus
Fury of Dracula (second edition)
Go
Leonardo da Vinci
The Pillars of the Earth
The Princes of Florence
Shadows over Camelot
The Office Trivia Game

Some of these are a matter of simply not having time, some are due to the fact that it's usually just my wife and I, and things like SoC and PoF aren't so playable with 2.
