Microgame Collection

I finally got around to unpacking my Microgame collection this evening.  It has been tucked away in three boxes in the basement since our move back in August, and I'd forgotten about several titles that had recently been added to the collection, including "A Fistful Of Turkeys."




There are a few titles left to acquire, but that exercise is not terribly urgent.  One of those has no placeholder at the moment: 20th Maine.  It is not the most expensive one to purchase, but several have sold on eBay without me paying attention to the listings.

Wow, some of these bring back memories.

Now I'm jealous. I have a couple of them but would like so many more.

That is impressive. So many cool games.

I kinda miss microgames to be honest, but it seems to have been exclusively a part of 70s and 80s.

Fenway5: that's about half my collection, I didn't publish my alternative covers and duplicates...

Banesfinger: some of these are still completely fun and playable, 35 years later.

Narmer: as long as you've got melee, wizard, deathtest, ogre, GEV, rivets, car wars, invasion of the air-eaters, starfire, deathmaze, starfleet battles, and transylvania, you've got the best ones. The rest are far less re-playable, in my opinion.

Timothy: The earliest ones seemed to have been the best.
