It's been over two years since my last significant relationship ended with a broken engagement. Being one of those hopeless optimists, I had thought that we could have put in more of an effort to save the relationship. But I've since accepted that it was better off for the both of us.

However...in my need to relocate, I had to move in a bit of a hurry. Now, I'm discovering that several of my favorite games are now no longer in my possession. Of course, nobody can seem to locate them in my former residence (we shared a house with 3 others).

This is just my means of cataloging the games that have disappeared in the ether, plus my efforts to re-acquire them. I'm sure to add more games as I discover them being missing.

This was the first game I discovered missing. Hard to miss a box that large.

RE-ACQUIRED December, 2008, via trade on Consimworld. Actually, an upgrade, obtaining an unplayed copy (no shrinkwrap, but pieces still bagged).

Perhaps one of my favorite, all-time wargames. Hard to miss, with the box bulging after adding the counter tray for the pieces. I really hope to find another copy, if I can't discover mine.

This one hurts. I have many great memories playing this game, at local game clubs and at Avaloncon. It will be an expensive re-acquisition.

This one won't be cheap either. Another personal favorite, having run a tournament of it at Pentecon I, in Ithaca, NY, back in '89.

Ack! Not this one! This is a great, lightweight game that's fun to play, with solid theme, and easy rules to teach non-gaming sci-fi geeks.

These games are randomly missing, but they're adding up to a lot of bucks!

This was the first game I discovered I was missing, about 2 years ago. After I had won a copy in a math trade, I went looking for my personal copy for an upcoming convention.

I was forced to use an otherwise unpunched copy in order to run the tourney. Unfortunate, in that I wanted to hold onto an unpunched copy. But at least the game got to be played with.

RE-ACQUIRED August, 2007, via Math Trade.

After I couldn't find my counter version, I discoverd, to my horror, that I was missing my plastic figure version, as well!

I could have sworn my copy of this game was packed next to my copy of Acquire (which I still own). And I even obtained a copy for a friend of mine in the interim.
