    Apart from Magic of course, what collectible games are still selling out there? Anyone know?

    Monsterpocalypse
    Axis and Allies minis
    Legend of the Five Rings is still kicking I think.
    As far as I know The Spoils is still going but I haven't heard anything about it in a while.
    Shadowfist CCG
    World of Warcraft CCG
    Illuminati New World Order is still selling technically but only as a factory box set.
    Despite WizKids' closure Clix still lives on.
    I'm not sure about Mechwarrior but haven't heard of its demise.
    There's a Conan CCG wallowing around out there I think.
    Spycraft
    Attacktix... I'm sure the list could grow longer but I'm going to stop looking there. Smile


    The Call of Cthulhu and Game of Thrones CCGs have converted to a "Living Card Game" format that FFG is trying out. Their Mutant Chronicles game while not completely non collectible now shows you everything in the box upfront instead of having to randomly buy until you get what you're looking for.

    Edit: Seems Mutant Chronicles is no more. http://new.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_news.asp?eidn=499

    I won't say Collectible games are on the way out. That's been said about every other genre and they all still go on but it's definitely not the big draw it used to be.

    Here's a list of games under the Collectible Components category on BGG.

    Though I am about to sell off all of my Mage Knight stuff, I still enjoy a game of MK Dungeon. I'd pretty much play that whenever. Maybe someone should bring it to G3 2.2?

    Maybe that someone could be you, Mark. LOL.

    Always a possibility.... I'm planning on running two events, but I could add a third.
