Warsaw“It is a civilizational wake-up call. A powerful message—spoken in the language of fires, floods, droughts, and extinctions—telling us that we need an entirely new economic model and a new way of sharing this planet.” ― Naomi Klein“Climate change has never received the crisis treatment from our leaders, despite the fact that it carries the risk of destroying lives on a vastly greater scale than collapsed banks or collapsed buildings.” ― Naomi Klein
Here is the original geeklist: Public commitment: Not buying new games in 2015
Next year, we applied what we learned in Public commitment: Not buying new games in 2016
In short: owning 65 board games, almost 200 pc games (many of them never played) and many roleplaying games and having limited playtime with two small kids I was buying more than playing. I was thinking "thats what I need, that will make my collection complete!". Compulsive buying was my problem. On the other hand I was constantly trading games away, even after 1-2 plays.
This year I want to make such commitment again as I found it good for me.
I have made myself few rules:
* I can't buy (or back) computer, roleplaying and board games for myself.
* I can, but only if they wish so, give games to my wife and daughters
* I can trade games - I participate in math trade 2 or 3 times a year trading maybe 2 games each time - I suspect this number to drop with stream of new games going dry
* I can get game as presents - I have birthday in October and usually get 1 or 2 games.
In the same time I want to focus on playing and getting fun from games I own.
If you think not buying games for a year would be something good for you, just add the item to the list and track your progress if you want
The above rules are the ones that I plan to conform to - feel free to use them also or outline your own in the entry. If you plan to set yourself a limit - thats fine (but stick to it !!! ).
I know that jumping in is leaving your comfort zone - it is for me - but just sit with this for one minute thinking if it would be good for you.
And we have a microbadge: !!!
Here is our Public commitment: Not buying new games in 2018 !!!
