This is just a quick post to celebrate the achievement of a personal goal of mine, which was to get rid of the backlog of unplayed games in my collection. Since the year 2000 I'd had at least one game in my collection that I hadn't played (maybe fifteen or twenty at the worst), but I finally broke that streak on Saturday, July 11, 2009. The last one to go was Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde. Keith C. and I played against David Molnar and his daughter at Alternate Boardgames in Milford, CT. I'd originally bought the game in November of 2003.

Thanks to Keith, David, and the younger Molnar, and of course to all the other nice people who play games with me here in Connecticut.


Disclaimer: I must admit that this doesn't include expansions; I still haven't tried the three Gipf expansions, but I'm hoping to be able to do that at some point during BGG Con. I also have a Power Grid expansion map and an old 1985 expansion to the original Illuminati game. Also this does not include all the random stuff that I've gotten as gifts and which I would probably never bring to a serious gaming group.

Wow I was feeling good about myself just getting my unplayed games to fit on a single Geeklist page.

Anyway, sounds like you need to get some new games. :)

Congrats! That is indeed a fine achievement. I myself accomplished the same only a few months ago.

Unfortunately that only inspired me to start on my single play list. Hoping to say that all of my games have been played at least twice by 2010...

(Same as you - I don't count expansions or games that I have for trade)

Me or the OP?

Actually, either makes sense, as does "Both".

I cannot understand how the number of unplayed games could ever decrease.
Everytime, Essen or Nürnberg approaches, I shout: STOP! I'm not finished playing all new games.
But no one will listen...


cheers,
Dirk
