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

June was an interesting month for my collection as I visited game stores in both Rome and Hannover while on vacation. 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) –…

Vacation Game Stores

Well we’re back in the US after a long day of travel and it’s time to unpack and get laundry going. But since I don’t want to do either of those things, instead I made a cup of coffee and settled down to write about the game stores I visited on my trip: Avalon Roma…

Collection Update: May 2017

It was a very light month for acquisitions, likely helped by the fact that I didn’t get a tremendous amount of gaming in at all.

Collection Update: April 2017

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

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…
