Alright, I apologize if there is already a list like this. However, it has come to my attention that I want a lot of games! While I am a self admitted addict to buying new games, there are just some that I can't afford, find, or fit into my collection.

Now, to avoid people from just grabbing anything they want on there wish list, I'm limiting this to something that truly isn't attainable for one reason or another.

And no, pre-orders do not count as unattainable!!!

Not only does this first come to mind, but it also fits into almost every limitation I've put into this list.

First of all this master set of HeroScape is extremely hard to find. Second, if I manage to find it, it's usually pretty expensive! Third, and the most important reason as to why I can't have it, it simply takes up too much room.

I live in an apartment that is pretty much filled to the lungs as it is right now. I can't fathom trying to find a place for this plus the expansions that would inevitably follow.

While I have this game already, I want really nice painted minis for this game. And with the standard for nice painted minis to be around $200 or more, I just can't do it.

I also want to buy more map sections to make bigger scenarios, but I do believe that is attainable at some point or another.

This may seem like an odd ball, but to be honest I had this game as a kid. I loved it. I had it from about age 10 on and when I left for college it somehow made it into a garage sale.

I was devastated, for some reason (even I can't explain it), this held a sweet spot in my heart.

It could be this was my first real game beyond Monopoly, Clue, and Life...

Big and expensive. If I get this, I know I'd want the expansions. The worst part? I probably won't be able to play it as much as I want since most of my RPG friends are busy these days.

I'd really like to have this game. But it costs too much. Building 3-4 coherent armies to play with more friend is somewhat i can't afford.

A very small print run (I've read as small as 350 copies) and outrageous prices well above $1000 whenever a copy comes up for sale. No way I'll ever get this one.

11. Board Game: The Hunt [Average Rating:7.07 Unranked]
 
Pure nostalgia. Out of all the games I played in the 90's, this is the one I regret not buying while it was in print. Produced by a small company and in smallish print runs, it was a convention staple for a few years. A weapon-filled free-for-all that pits several criminals against each other in a maze, it cured that craving for simulated violence with Ameritrashy goodness reminiscent of the book/movie, The Running Man.

I don't care what it's rated or ranked here, no game on my want/wish list would fill me with as much glee were I to run across a copy for sale.

Update: Checked to see if anyone had this for sale or trade on BGG and found someone that had The Hunt and it's expansion, Overtime for trade. All he wanted was my copy of Castle Merchants in exchange. I thought I made out well.

Some people sell this OOP game for upwards of $200. I often send letters to Hasbro asking why they don't reprint it. I have not yet received a response. If you have a copy, hang on to it, or sell it for ridiculous cash.

The map is oh so pretty, and I do love monster wargames. But with this being OOP and a monster, there is no way that I will be able to afford it/or find anyone/the room to play it. But still...if I could afford it, all the wargamey goodness... rool:

I want this. I want this a lot, but my game budget is pretty much nil these days.

I really, really doubt I will ever fork out the money for it and I don't have enough to trade for it.

Try as I might, I can find nowhere to beg, trade, borrow, print-n-play, or steal this masterpiece.

I'd really like to get a copy that came with the little purple plastic squid markers, but I'd settle for the stupid rubber chicken...

The obvious choice for me. Game sounds fantastic, and usually sells for $200-$300.

My other choices (Goa and Betrayal at House on the Hill) are being reprinted in the near future.

San Marco is another want that is available, just a little pricey.

My father had this game when he was young.

When I was young, he made me a copy by hand on poster board based on 30 year memories, and I played it well over 500 times.

With the advent of the internet, it opened up our ability to find it, but finding it another story altogether. Thanks to this website, though, we can see pics of it. (I even wrote a review of it).

It is so rare that only one person on BGG has it and he's not selling. I found a torn up poor copy on EBay for $1000, but we that's way too much for that condition (that is the price for a very good copy) and way too rich for my blood. I offered $300, but that person didn't bite.

Anyway, I'd love to get a copy for my father.
