What are your Grail games?

Either ones that you own or the elusive ones that you're still looking for!

I own a copy of A Few Acres of Snow.  I almost sold it for like $120 on Amazon once but it was the only game my wife played with me and she said "what if we want to play it some time in the future".  So I didn't sell it.

Wow! But that’s a good reason to keep it.

The only reason I held onto it.

But.... have you played it since?

I think it was more, "once our oldest is old enough to babysit" so we may be waiting 4 more years.

I have lots of grail games. Xia: Legends of a Drift System is probably the one that would be the hardest to acquire. Otherwise there are plenty of games that are available but are more expensive than I can normally spend on games. Mage Knight: Ultimate Edition isn’t too bad and I might convince my Dad to get it for me for Christmas. Gaia ProjectA Feast For Odin, and Gloomhaven are expensive but definitely attainable. I’m still kicking myself for not picking up Gaia Project last Black Friday.

Looks like Xia might be on pre-order from far off games.

I saw that too! Unfortunately I have been given a spending moratorium by my wife. 

JamesReid860 Supporter7 months ago | 1 point[-]

Sorry man. How much do you think you spend on boardgames in a given month? 

JamesReid860 Supporter7 months ago | 1 point[-]

prior to the spending moratorium that is

In our budget I was allocated $60/month for fun money. Which is supposed to be fun for me to decide what to spend it on. But now she’s fed up with me acquiring games for now. So I’ll take a bit of a hiatus for a bit.

Gotta have a breather in there somewhere. $60 is pretty good... mine is $0 currently lol

Skurvy5 Supporter7 months ago | 1 point[-]

True. When she was letting me spend it, that was a cool game per month.

No doubt!

Oh... Sorry.

As recently as yesterday Xia was on the historic low price list. I didn't look to see where the price was quoted from. I think it was around $80.

Skurvy5 Supporter7 months ago | 1 point[-]

Oh really? I guess I don’t actually have it on my watch list. 

Marshwiggle92 Supporter7 months ago | 1 point[-]

It's not on mine either. It is just that every several days I look at the home page on BGA and I happened to notice it there.

Oh nice! Xia is on my list too!

Star Wars: Queen's Gambit and Star Wars: Epic Duels. Both out of print, and I've only played Epic Duels, but I love it so much. I saw Epic Duels at the flea market at a local convention a few years back, used for $50, and am regretting not jumping on that.

JamesReid860 Supporter7 months ago | 1 point[-]

Just for $50! Its ok... the hunt is part of the fun!

Glory To Rome specifically the black box edition.
