A little-known release from a one-time publisher, The Hellgame is the other side of German game design: visceral and thematic, but still mechanically interesting.

I assume this is effectively unobtainium at this point, and a quick glance at BGG reinforces that conclusion, but it looks intriguing.

I think so. It was relatively rare 12-13 years ago when I snagged a copy and it's only gotten worse. I got mine from a guy in Florida. Looking at BGG, it's EU/UK or nothing if you're offering legal tender. There's a couple dozen up for trade, but that's always a crapshoot.

I was interested in Hellgame a decade ago, but the prices at BGG were always a little too high. And the reviews indicated that it was a long, complicated, fiddly game. I thought about my local gamers, and eventually realized that I would maybe get one play out of Hellgame before it became a shelf toad.

At one point, I got a series of plays in. Over a couple years, we probably played a dozen times or more. But my group changed quite a bit and now it's the kind of game that would almost never come off the shelf. I've kept it, mostly because I always really liked it (even the horrible random events) and I don't think I'll ever part with it.
