This morning, when I tried to put a gamebox back in my collection, I noticed similarities between my collection and one game in it.

Add the game which describes you collection best. I'll give two examples just to get you guys going.

My stack of games is so precariously balanced it is a game in itself to try and get one out or put one back. (this morning it completely fell over on the floor)

My collection is balanced in the physical sense as well as being balances between gamers games (mostly Abstract) and games that can easily be played by everyone (mostly Dexterity)

It's a very eclectic collection. (Il Mischiastorie = story mixer, an appropriate description.)

My small collection contains only popular and famous games because my company is usually not too enthusiastic about boardgames. I have been trying to hook some of friends into boardgaming and so far the best results I've gotten with TtR and Catan.

To me, my game collection is "treasure" - I derive a lot of interesting and pleasurable social experiences from it, playing with friends and family, and I also do my best to keep them in good condition.

However, I have to stuff them all away in cupboards and other places to keep them away from the +90% humidity here - so they are effectively "buried"!

Hence, Buried Treasure!

Emerald because:
- kid friendly, but good with just adults too
- card based; nearly every game I own involves cards
- dice & pawns; that's what I grew up with
- modern; it's part of the new wave of Eurogaming
- I love dragons
- Dorn is one helluva designer
- plays in under one hour, just like most of my collection

Games with fluffy bunnies in them need not apply. The games in my collection are games of conflict with strong themes. Even the lighter games in my collection have strong themes such as pirates or dungeons.

For the last 4 years i have been away for long times from my house (mandatory military service, jobs). Actually right now i am working as an engineer in the Oil industry in the Sahara desert.

Since i am the only one that buys board games and many of my friends and social cycle in general are gamers (mainly ccg players) now my collection lies scattered across the houses of my friends, or their girlfriends or their parents-in-law or whatever. You get the picture.

Word of advice: never show a new game and then leave for a long period of time because when you return either nobody will want to play again the same game or they would have advanced to a new Level of expertise and experience that you cannot compete against. It has happened many times to me

Rush hour because I only buy games that take 1 hour or less to play, the only time I ever get to play is at work during lunch, so longer games just don't get played. So I know I miss out on some great games, but I can't see shelling out the cash for something that will just sit on a shelf.

Because this collection falls into 2 different streams... one is for adult eurogamers, the other is for 8 year old creatures. Of course, a few games fit nicely where the rivers fork.
