..aka 'vaporware'. I am sure there are many games out there that get designed, even prototyped, yet never manage to get into full production so they can end up on our gaming shelves.
Here are a few to get the list started.

First rumored late 2006.
Would love this one to manifest itself one day.

And it did finally appear in 2011 and is now in my collection

This one seems to keep being set back. Its obviously reached prototype stage but will it ever materialise so we can buy it ?

Finally hit the shelves in 2011 from Z-Man games

This 'Big Boss' remake almost made it into production and then was withdrawn almost as it was about to appear. Another one I would love to see in print.

Kosmos finally produced this in 2010

This old classic is now in playtest by Multiman Publishing.
Perhaps a little too soon to say that it will never appear..

Homas Tour is perhaps one of the saddest stories. There they all were, stacked in a warehouse ready to ship when fire destroyed them. Some exist but not many. Perhaps this isn't really a Ghost Game, but with the fire, who knows

A Knizia's game from 2005. The publisher went out of business before producing the game.

Another one that since doing this list has become a 'Ghost Game'. Apparently, JKLM games have abandoned it due to 'lack of interest' yet looking at the animated game they once showed, it looked to have a lot of promise. Ah well..
