Collection Update: April 2018

It was a very impulsive month as I added things to my collection on a whim rather than due to planning. For example, Dropmix was purchased for cheap in a Toys ‘R’ Us that was days from closing and has already provided enough fun that I’m glad I grabbed one. Hopefully my other impulse buys…

Collection Update: March 2018

I added a LOT of games to my collection in March thanks to a lot of boxes showing up while I was in Baltimore for UnPub 8. Turns out a few Kickstarters had decided to fulfill at the same time, and since I already have more tracking numbers in my email, it looks set to…

Collection Update: September 2017

For once, I actually removed things from my collection as the TBGT flea market proved decently successful. I hadn’t done a god job prepping for it so had hurriedly priced some items that morning instead of methodically going through my collection, culling & researching prices so getting some stuff off the shelves was more than…

Unplayed Games: The Stats

As part of my 2017 gaming resolutions I’m trying to get through some of the games I have sitting unplayed on my shelves, especially those that have been gathering dust for a while. To make it easier to see what needs to be played, I’ve created a Google Sheet to track the games, when I…

Collection Update: July 2017

Between my birthday (yay!), birthday money, the RUTHCon flea market, and some Kickstarters showing up, a lot of games were added to my collection. Unfortunately very few left my collection despite the flea market, so it may be time to consider selling online despite my not wanting to deal with shipping. ADDED GAMES Asgard –…

Collection Update: June 2017

But I also opened up the RUTHCon math trade and flea market which meant a bunch of games were placed up for grabs and will potentially leave my shelves. ADDED Games Condottiere (Italian) –…
