I know quite a few folks enjoy listing unplayed games in their collection -- but I've often been told that my list of unplayed games exceeds the overall collection of many people on the 'Geek. Which is a shame, as it's pretty good ammunition for the wife to argue against acquiring any more games.

Since I've got so damn many of them, I'm breaking this list into several parts. This list focuses on unplayed games in my collection starting with A through D.

I've thought about grinding through my collection until all the games get played, but that's just not going to happen. There are a handful of games I genuinely want to get to the table, but there are even more games I just don't know enough about.

Help me out here... Should I get these to the table, or bury them at the bottom of my collection? Play bait or Trade bait?

Also includes the Rivers and Traders & Builders expansions for Carc. Once I found Carc: Hunters & Gatherers, all the other expansions for the original Carc have been collecting dust. With each expansion, you add game length, not necessarily game quality.

This covers the following Duel of Ages expansions: Royal Tournament, Mercenary Camp, Field of Honor and Ruins of Cany XII. I totally dig DoA, and would love to play a massive game with all the expansions, but it fell flat with almost everyone I've introduced it to. A real shame, as I own the complete series, but have only played with the base set, Vast Horizons and Intensity.

I've played Acquire with other people's copies, but have yet to get mine to the table. I received this as a loaner gift from a fellow 'Geek trying to convert me to the wonders of Acquire, but I've never enjoyed a playing. I don't know if it's time I dust it off and give it another shot or just let it stay dead.

One of my GeekBuddies found a dinged copy of this at a thrift store, and was kind enough to send it my way. I've read so many good things about the game that I've always been interested in trying it out -- and now I might have my opportunity. The timing just hasn't been right, but I really want to try this one out.

I picked this up immediately after release, and gleefully punched out the zillion colored chits and marveled at the components and the experience it offered -- then I read the rules, saw the horrendous editing errors, downloaded the 16 page FAQ and quickly lost interest. Is the underlying game worth all the effort?

I really enjoyed Bang! when it first came out, and the completionist in me sought out the Dodge City and High Noon expansions. But like Carcassonne, the more stuff you add, the longer the game gets w/o necessarily improving gameplay. The novelty wears off quickly, especially if you're eliminated early on and folks are still dodging bullets 45 minutes later.

This was the flip side of my infamous Ra trade. I traded away an excellent condition Alea edition Ra for the original French version of Dungeon Twister. I was thrilled by DT when I first heard about the game. I was still pretty interested when I got my hands on the copy and thumbed through the rules, but it seems perhaps too tactical and AP-prone for my tastes -- I far prefer flying by the seat of my pants.

This is the Q-Jet 21XX Korean sci-fi retheming of the popular Ave Caesar racing game. The components are neat and I was really eager to get my hands on this, but I miss the chariot theme, and the mechanics look so simple as to possibly be uninteresting.

I was originally very interested in this classic FASA game, hoping it might fill the craving for a Circus Maximus-style racing game with a bit more "bite" to it, and possibly cleaner rules/gameplay. Alas, nothing from the rules made me think this was the real deal, but perhaps it could be...

I picked this up at GenCon 2005 based on the recommendation of a certain Geek who shall remain unnamed (SISTERAY). This earlier Alan Moon game looks interesting, and seems to represent a transitional design lying somewhere between Union Pacific and Ticket to Ride. The rules appear simple, but it doesn't really "stick" after an initial read... I've also heard some severe balance issues exist with certain player numbers.

Another game I inherited from spring cleaning at another gamer's house. Sadly, the core rulebook is missing! That'll make it hell to get to the table. Which is too bad, as all the maps and tracking sheets are complete and in great shape. The game even includes the Grenadier pewter dragon miniatures still sealed in their original blister. It looks like it could be a lot of fun. Sadly, I may never find out.

Another game I rec'd via BGG trade that was high on my acquisition list for it's nostalgia value, but which has yet to get read, let alone to the table. I sifted through the games briefly to get a good hit of reminiscence, as I fondly recall many of these games from the glory days of Dragon Magazine... Sadly, it didn't grab me as much as I was hoping.

I don't like regular Settlers, far preferring the adventurish feel of Starfarers of Catan -- which I've been told Candamir offers. I picked it up for 50% off at a local hobby shop, and thought it was a steal at the time. But I've run out of steam while reading the rules.

I love the concept of Dungeoneer, and really like the art. But the rules are pretty vexing. I've been told the game improves dramatically using the rules available online. This is a game I really need to get to the table, as Thomas Denmark is a really nice guy and I certainly owe it to him to get this thing played!!

After playing Draco & Co, Dragon's Gold and Fantasy Business, I went on a Blue Egg spree, snatching up the other games in the series willy nilly. But reading the rules and setting up a mock game to learn the game left me uninterested, and my faith in the Blue Egg series evaporated.

As such a huge fan of Mutant Chronicles: Siege of the Citadel, when I found out Heartbreaker was going to make a fantasy-themed game, I just had to have it. The game looks a lot like a smaller version Siege of the Citadel in terms of production quality and how the game would play out, but the restricted scenarios and smaller game field left me uninspired... For the trouble, I'd rather play SotC.

Another GenCon spot-purchase. I love supporting home published/small publisher games at Cons -- I have a lot of respect for people willing to put their money where their mouth (er, design) is and bring a game to market. The rules look interesting, and I have the feeling that if this had gotten better production or been introduced by an established designer, it'd be fairly well received even if no mechanical changes were made.

I had once been keen on trying this game with the prospect of political intrigue and an interesting interplay of mechanics. But then I started to read the rulebook. It's the classic AH dense rule blocks of headings, subheadings and sub-subheadings. It's a nightmare, and even with the player aids I've found, the game is intimidating to the point that I can't see how it'd be much fun.

I love the comparisons to Castle of Magic, one of my all-time favorites... The hidden roles and scoring requirements ensure each game would be different, but when reading the ultra-light rules, I can't see how the gameplay would pan out -- is there enough there to really sink your teeth into? Still, I gotta' try it at least once.

Another game from my childhood. One of my friends used to own this, and I remember having a great time playing. I was thrilled to get an unpunched copy in a trade, but sadly I have yet to play. I wish I'd make the time to carefully separate all the figures from their sprues and paint them, as it would look really, really sharp. Looks like it could be a fun game, even if it is mechanically showing its age.

I've heard the horror stories about the game, and am baffled by the huge number of special abilities, exceptions and minutae for what I was thinking (hoping) would be a simple manual dexterity chip-fest like X-Bugs. I've not given up all hope, but I can see why this game was such a flop at GenCon.

Received from a friend as he cleared out his collection during spring cleaning one year -- much to my delight, I inherited 10 excellent condition games, including Candidate. Intriguing, but since Road to the White House is my current favorite political game, I'm not sure if a different game could come close to offering a comparable experience.

Interest level: Medium-high

I was pleasantly surprised by the nice production quality of this Kenzer & Company game, better known for d20 D&D products and Knights of the Dinner Table comics. The game looks interesting and seems like it would play at a nice brisk pace. I like games where you build a new board each time, and the board building adapts to 2-4 players well. Interested enough to play, but not sure if anyone else I game with would want to give this a shot.
