Returning from a VERY long absence, I just want to clarify that AQOMF was just one example of one of the "orphans" which I wondered might warrant support; it wasn't a poll about a board for one specific title.

POLL DESCRIPTION

Proposal by Personal logo Dasher Supporting Member of TMP.

I keep seeing people selling off their AQOMF armies.

I'm guessing this happens with any title which doesn't survive the vagaries of the market or fails to make a big splash or just ages less-than-gracefully…

But… somebody is buying all these things being sold off, so I am assuming that they are still getting played, somewhere.

This might not warrant a board for such games individually, but maybe there is a place for a catch-all board covering those gone-but-not-forgotten titles that some few people still play; niche titles, perhaps, but still good games.

Yes, I realize that they can be covered by virtue of their subject matter in already existing boards, but it might be fun to sort out these "zombies" and the necrogamers who still play them – like me – in a living graveyard of their own.
