We've all done it--either sold these once beloved games or relegated them to the closet shelf or garage forever. Now, I'm not talking about "dogs"--yes, there's little to no emotion save for disgust, disappointment, anger, or even outrage when we kiss them goodbye. But what about games that were your favorites that you no longer play?

I have sworn off ASL, for the last time. Didn't buy the long awaited Rising Sun. Had sold off my starter kits. Play more solo games, as our board game group having lost its organizer and peace maker passed away. 

Flames of War.  I played it for many years, but eventually lost interest.  I also got sick of them coming out with new editions where I had to buy new rulebooks all over again.

I never thought I'd say this, but I'm now relegating the venerable Avalon Hill TURNING POINT: STALINGRAD and its expansion to the closet.  I was a play tester for this title back in 1988 and 1989  and absolutely loved the game as it put both players into the mindset of their historical counterparts, von Paulus and Chuikov.  But Mike Rinella just published the premier title for Last Stand Games, STALINGRAD: VERDUN ON THE VOLGA.  It at first seems to be a very similar game but moves far faster and solves the problem of simulating the accumulating German casualties during the battle.  It's a much more expensive game and gorgeously produced.  But I think I'll be playing this from now on as my favorite Stalingrad area impulse system game!
