I am in the cult of the new. I buy more games that I can possibly play. So instead of playing those games, I come on boardgame geek just to read about new games that I can buy, instead of playing the games I have. So I ask to all of you, were is this going?

Sound like you sleeping on a pile of game boxes is where it's going

Edit: and seriously, play your games!!!

It's going to fill up your shelves and lead to buying more, which will then lead you to the realization that your current shelves do not adequately showcase your collection and from there it's just a short leap into learning carpentry to make your own custom shelves. Find some friends to play with before the sawdust claims you!!

Retirement.

No. Not so you can sell them like an investment. But, so you can still have games that you haven't played to death or maybe even not at all when you no longer have a disposable income.

You're probably headed towards owning a lot of games that you don't play more than once or twice, if at all. The luster may eventually wear off. When that happens, you may sell off a bunch of games in a big auction for way less than you paid for them and settle into enjoying the ones you deemed worth keeping.

Or maybe you'll start having to wear box tops as clothes. Who knows?

You're headed for disillusionment. Save yourself the trouble... Send your games to me.

Are you only buying brand-new games (released within the last 6 months)? It doesn't look that way. It looks like you're trying to build a collection. Buying as many brand-new games as possible because you just GOTTA have 'em is the Cult of the New. If you're new to the hobby and you're simply padding out your Owned list with games, that is called "Collecting". Cult of the New is the cult that plays a brand-new game at Essen one time and rushes to BGG to declare "BEST GAME EVER MADE EVER!" Not to be confused with the Cult of the OOP, which behaves in a similar manner.

If you are married remember to make big orders rather than many small ones, it's easier to slip new games in that way.

The best method is to get someone else order the games for you. You take a bag full of games to game night, but leave a little extra room. You left home with 3 games, you come home with 4. Your wife never notices.

Do you have a camera in my game room or something? Creepy.

Or just be single and buy all of the games. All of them. whistle

And a fat lot of good it has done me recently with those stacks of board games everywhere blocking the view.

I have a rule that I have to play a game at least once before I buy a new one and if I enjoy it I have to play at least 4 more times. There are a few exceptions, like I've only played Arkham Horror 3 or 4 times, but for the most part this is how I roll.

I have a similar prolem, my game group likes playing certain games, but it's really hard to convince them to try new ones. So I've been picking up games with a solo/possible ability. That way at least I can play by myself.

Yeah that works...This is how that theory works out for me:

1. I buy a new game
2. I Immediately invites housemates to try it that evening and everyone has fun.
3. Thanks to my 'board-gaming is awesome' mood, I now want to buy a new game.
4. Well, I've played everything I own at least once, guess I could buy just 1 more!
