Yep, I’m ready to move this on. It’s probably the best heavy euro ever made but it’s been dormant and taking up shelf space for a couple of months so I’d like to pass it on to a new home. This is the base game, all expansions/modules, stretch goals, art book, foil stamped/numbered box, all the things. I never did get the upgraded resource tokens though. But other than that it’s all the things…miniatures, storage trays, all of it. Pretty darn close to new, well cared for, and complete.

Looking at $350 shipped on it.

I don’t want to derail your thread, but I’d be interested in seeing which games you do hold onto.

A copy of Fluxx and a dog-eared deck of standard playing cards.

I tend to keep things that have a timeless, evergreen quality- stuff that I can always pull off the shelf and go even if it’s been a while. The really complex or elaborate stuff doesn’t tend to fall into that category, and my time with those kinds of games is generally over once I’ve had some plays, enjoyed it, and feel like it would be better off being played by someone else.

Here is some of what is on my forever shelf…some of these games I’ve had for for 20+ years.

Acquire
Can’t Stop
Talisman
Settlers of Catan
Dune
El Grande
Tigris & Euphrates
Modern Art
Ra
Power Grid
Nexus Ops
Dungeonquest
Survive
Ticket to Ride
Tikal
GIPF series
Unmatched
The Crew
Dune Inperium
Mechs vs. Minuons (my son’s all time favorite game)
Neuroshima Hex


Possible candidates for the Forever Shelf but I’ve had these less than 3-4 months
Return to Dark Tower
Summoner Wars 2nd Edition
War Chest
Libertalia Winds of Galecrest
Hansa Teutonica
Betrayal at the the House on the Hill 3rd edition

Generally speaking, if I come back to a game 10+ years later and still dig it, that is usually something I’ll put up there. Talisman for example. I’m on my FOURTH and —final ownership of it. I mean it this time.

TBH i though Anachrony would stay but it’s just dormant right now. It is an -amazing- game. I think it’s most likely the best science fiction game I’ve ever played and as far as the heavy Euro goes it is best in class. It has the depth and scope of something like Argent, but it blows it up even further with a really strong narrative, actual SF concepts and a perfect mix of simple processes but complex decisions. The solo bots are the best I’ve ever seen, and it’s still fun to play with others unlike other games. It’s easier to grasp and manage than a Lacerda but it has that kind of detail and layering.

I'll endorse this game. It might seem like a steep price, but more than delivers on the content and quality of the game.

Also, I will be really surprised if Dark Tower doesn't stay on your Forever Shelf

Yeah, it’s almost a lock. It’s so easy to play, completely unique, and -fun-.

This is a game I've been moderately interested in, and if it weren't the "OMG everything" package I'd probably bite. However, three-and-a-half bills on a footlocker of "well maybe" is just beyond the pale, even for me.

It's fairly priced, and I'm sure you'll get a buyer, but I still haven't come to grips with dropping that much on a game in one shot. While I normally embrace a shelf toad, the rule is that the toad must actually fit on a shelf.

It is really big.

It is also the kind of game where if you like it, you want it all. Mindclashbsent me a review copy of the base game and after like 2 plays I was hunting for this to get the whole package. I
