From time to time, I will be at a store and see a great out of print game that I own on the 2nd hand shelf. I don't need it and it doesn't have enough popularity for me to grab as trade bait, so I leave it be.

If I knew which wargamers were interested, I could tell the person so he/she could contact the store and buy it.

That is the inspiration behind this Geeklist.

Is there a wargame that you are looking for and just can't seem to find? Post it here. If you see a great game being unloved on a shelf, in an auction, or what-have-you, then you can post a comment under the entry.

Let's get those unloved wargames on some wargamers' shelf!

Entries are alphabetical.


Edit: If you list a game and find it, please let us know. If you are the only person looking for it, I will delete the entry (so we can stop looking for it) and add it to the list of successes at the bottom (see comments). If others are looking for the game, the listing will stay up. So if you see a game on this list, someone is looking for it. Feel free to re-add any game that has been located and removed from the list.

About a month ago I posted on this game entry, a genuine interest for trade in, but of course was unsuccessful...

Not that I wanted to 'catch a fool'(I respect all of my wargamers colleagues as to think something like that), but agree this game is kind of hard to find and when so, its price is outrageous.

There is an option in GMT P500 reprint, but this game has about 272 pre orders and unless it gets about 700 the chances for reprint are slim.

We keep checking and trying, with patience it will happen.

This is the one war game I really want but can't find.
I did bid on one on eBay in the last few months, but it went for >$100.00, which is a bit pricey for a magazine game.

GOT IT!!!!!!

Picked up the newly released edition boxed edition right from Sunset Games all the way in Japan. Picked it up at the post office today.
I believe it to be pretty much a straight reprint, so the present translations here on BGG should work fine.

but, I GOT IT!!!!!!!

I had a copy of this years ago, sold it when I moved out West, I'd love to have a copy again. I don't care if its punched, as long as its in good shape and complete, as I'd be getting this to play, not to stare at on the shelf.

I actually would be happy with just a photocopy of the rules as I have info to make the rest of the components.... or even the French version
Les Dieux Nomades


or


Now the regret-filled back story....I had this(& White Bear & Red Moon) mint (bought new from the renowned Napoleon's Bookshop in Sydney, Aust. c.1979) & sold them mid-80's. Wasn't til years later discovering BGG (& that there were so few made) & getting interested again in this sort of game. And didn't find out about the French versions til years after they were around.
