Collection Update: April 2017

This month I ordered some blank dice and labels from Amazon and got caught up creating custom dice for some of the available Roll & Write games out there, along with creating prototype versions of games from some of my friends. ADDED Games Hanamikoji – purchased from Amazon Haru Ichiban – Granite Game Summit BGG…

Collection Update: March 2017

I didn’t expect to come home from UnPub 7 with a ton of stuff, but in the end that’s exactly what happened causing a decent amount of collection growth, and still no reduction. ADDED Games Clank! – purchased from The Games Keep at UnPub 7 The Dresden Files Cooperative Card Game – KS fulfillment Fuji…

February – Collection update

In February, I received a massive shipment from CMON as they fulfilled the Arcadia Quest: Inferno Kickstarter campaign, which means that this list is both long and features the words “Arcadia Quest” so often that they will likely lose all meaning by the time anyone reaches the bottom. Not only that, but an order I’d…

January Collection

It’s a new year and not only am I now “allowed” to buy games, but I had Christmas money to spend. And then some orders I’d placed a while ago decided to release. With that perfect storm of circumstances, it’s no wonder a lot of new games & expansions made their way onto my shelves….

Collection Update: December 2016

Going into the month of December, I had no idea how my collection was about to change – I was still trying not to buy any games, but Christmas meant there was always the possibility of new additions to the game shelves. In the end, I dd use Amazon points to buy Codenames: Pictures to…

November Challenge Wrap-Up

It’s officially December, and so my attempts to improve my game & comics organization is technically over. However, I’ll be continuing to work on the projects I started last month for the next couple of weeks. Since my last update, I’ve gotten a few more things taken care of, most involving inserts. Organization During a…

Collection Update: November 2016

A number of outstanding game orders arrived this month, so I received a number of new games despite my austerity pledge. Plus there was the Gamers for Cures marathon, which brought with it a swag bag and a few prizes. ADDED Games AquaSphere – JVMF auction Dr. Eureka (x2) – CoolStuffInc Imhotep – CoolStuffInc Mansions…

November Challenge – Update 2

We’re now over halfway through the month and I’m realizing my list of projects for the month was pretty ambitious given that the month included both the 24-hr marathon and hosting Thanksgiving for Kit’s whole family. So I will likely be putting off some of the more creative (fun) projects, like the Mysterium screen, until…

November Challenge – Update

Organization I invited a bunch of people over to play games over the weekend which meant that I had to, at the very least, move the games chilling on top of the game table. Since I was moving some games around anyway, I figured I might as well start reorganizing a bit. After all, I…

November Challenge – Organization and Accentuation

This month I’m planning a challenge for myself that’s partly about function and partly about beauty. I want to focus on improving the organization involved with both my games and comics on one hand, but also spend part of the month accentuating my favourite games through custom bits & accessories. Organization Goals To improve organization…

Collection Update – October 2016

As I said in my introduction to my list of outstanding game orders, I have resolved to not buy any games for the rest of 2016. The acquisitions below were made prior to this vow, or were the result of previous pre-orders. Unfortunately there weren’t any games that left the collection this month, so my…

Taking Stock – Austerity & Outstanding Game Orders

Inspired by a number of friends who’ve been taking charge of their financial health, it’s time for me to publicly state that I’ll be buying no more games in 2016. The only exception I’m allowing myself to make is for PACG adventure packs, since Kit & I are really enjoying working our way through the…
