We all have those. The ones that are always options to play on game night but somehow are never picked. What are those for you?

Whenever my wife asks "what shall we play" I shout "Fury of Dracula!" on reflex. We've never been able to play it because our kids are too young and it'd suck with just the two of us. (Not least because we know each other so well that any game involving hidden movement or identities goes sideways in a heartbeat.)
Dinosaur Island is another one. We like it, but the footprint is so big we don't have anywhere to lay it all out. Other than that the runners up tend to be games with a lot of heft, again because the children aren't old enough yet.

haha! Hopefully you get some friends together soon for Fury of Dracula. I just got Dinosaur Island and hope it doesn't go the way of the runner up. We'll see... I'm dying to play it!

Terraforming Mars is frequently that one for me. Never gets asked to the prom. I kind of feel bad for it sometimes.
It’s a good one! But it must be the art/design looks dated. So the new flashy games quickly overshadow it.

Whatever it is I'm eager to play, usually. The game I bring to play, doesn't get played. The game that we brought as a backup, that's the one we play.
Last night, it was Horrified to Steampunk Rally Board Game.
Before that, Black Angel to Sabotage.

Why does that always happen? Every time I am really in the mood for game X we just can't play it.
This should be a law of gaming. The game you really want to play won't be played haha.

For me and my wife it seems like it's Azul. I'm always in for it, and she likes it, but not quite as much as some of our other games.
Jk jk... I'm sure we'll be fine
Lol I love it and she likes it. I'm sure you'll enjoy it!
As long as we don't Jinx it we should be good lol
Oh don't say that! I just got Azul!
It often ends up being Power Grid.
I just played that for the first time recently. While I had lots of fun and really enjoyed it, I can see that one being overshadowed by others.
For me recently its been Adrenaline. We even were setting up but the group wanted to play something else *sad face*

How dare they! I love Adrenaline. Such a fun game!
I wish I knew! Just need to get it to the table. I traded for it so I have the expansion and the player pieces have a pretty decent paint job! We'll get it played soon
