If you are like me, you look at the pictures submitted by people who have these professionally made cabinets and shelves with all of their games on them, immaculately filed away by whatever process they have created, and you simply think - "I don't have the time for that! I am too busy playing games!"

So I decided to make this geeklist to encourage people to post pictures of THEIR sloppily put together collection, the more haphazard the better. I want to see pictures of teetering piles of games on TV trays. I want to see no rhyme or reason for the placing of the games. I want to see components lying around, not filed away in boxes. Precarious wobbling card tables, threatening to tip over a big plus.

Habitual alphabetic organizers need not apply.

Especially awful collections may earn GG from yours truly. Any tips the geeklist may receive will be funneled directly to deserving contributors.

Try and give a little background to your picture. It it tucked away in a metal shed in your backyard? A dingy linen closet in the basement? A pile of cinder blocks and 2X6's stolen from a nearby construction yard? The better the story, the better the reward.

Thanks for taking the time to read this, and I thank you in advance for your contributions.

Well I will start this off with my collection. I think this is all of the games but there might be some tucked away somewhere else in the house. A couple of quick notes.

The tub to the bottom right contains about 20-30 different card games, most of them still in shrink. Most of those were purchased via Tanga Trash or other worthless decision, though there are a couple of gems in there, like my copy of Ultimate Werewolf and Glory to Rome.

The large chip case in the center on the floor contains my chip version of Dominion that I made last year. The other case you see off to the left actually contains poker chips.

Yes the copy of Space Hulk is still in shrink, and no you can't have it. I am still in the process of painting my first copy and I will be starting on that one soon enough, though I should really open it up and make sure there aren't any broken bits in there.

The little tiny end table in the middle has been with me since I was 5 years old, and I will keep it for the rest of my life if I have anything to say about it.

Yes, I know, there are a lot of games still in shrink. I will play them eventually, I promise.

I don't know why I own 2 copies of 1856.

And finally yes, this is in my unfinished dank cavern of my basement. Someday I will finish it and have a real gaming room...someday.

I encourage any and all questions you may have - I am interested to hear what people have to say.

We moved into our new house about 8 months ago and I simply piled the games onto these shelves so they fitted reasonably efficiently. All that has happened since is that the ones we play most often have (anti)gravitated to the top. Maybe one day I'll sort them out a bit better..... but don't hold your breath. I'd rather play 'em!



Actually it looks a lot neater on the photo than it actually is - so perhaps doesn't qualify for this list!

This is a mixture of all sorts of stuff to do with games. There's my regular bought games, plus my PnP games, and games I've bought at the thrift store just to cannibalize for parts (the several trivial pursuits & scrabble among others). It just goes wherever it can fit. The desk under the whole pile is my PnP centre, you can see the laminator & various tools strewn about. Believe it or not there's a mostly finished copy of Merchant of Venus under all that stuff. I can't even paint my Spacehulk mini's here, I'm doing them on the dining room table. I have decided to clean this up a bit today but saw this post so decided to take a picture of it. The room is only 10' by 6' and also doubles as my computer & Lego room.

On the creepy side you'll notice a small window behind the light that looks upon a wall. When they put the addition on they just left the window there. When we moved in I had a dream about a thin grey man walking between the walls (ala: The Lurker At The Threshold) stemming from the noise of whatever creature makes this area it's highway (we think it's a weasel or very large rat). Very creepy. wow
