I love board games, but if I came into a bunch of unexpected money, there are a few things I might spend the money on instead of games.

I've only been to six music concerns in my life, none since 1995 (Liz Phair). But I would be tempted to go to a Taylor Swift concert, even if I might be the only person over the age of 40 there.

I love running 5K and 10K road races, and they're comparably priced to most board games ($25-$60). True, a board game is a durable good, while a road race is an ephemeral experience. But the fantastic feeling that comes with a strong finish resulting in a personal record is pretty comparable to a killer round 14 in Agricola that propels you to victory.

I'm much more into TV than movies, and I pick up seasons of my favorite shows on DVD or digitally to re-watch. I've seen seasons 2-8 of "24" at least three times each. My current favorite TV show is "Once Upon a Time," but others I like a lot are "24: Legacy," "Supergirl," "Prison Break," "Marvel's Agents of SHIELD," "Survivor," "Designated Survivor," "Scandal," "The Blacklist," "Hawaii 5-0," "Bosch," "The Man in the High Castle," and "The Last Ship."

Not very fun, but I'm pragmatic. If I came into a large sum of money, I'd pay down the mortgage. Well, I'd buy some games, too.

Kids. They're expensive to raise from birth to age 18 (~$250,000 is one estimate, though of course it varies greatly). And then there's college to save for! I hope my kids can earn some scholarships.

I eat healthily at dinner (because of my wife). My lunches, not so much.

I'm a gym rat. I love board games, but the ratio of time I spend at the gym versus that at FLGS is about 10,000-1. Now, if someone could figure out a way for me to work out AND play board games at the same time....
