Since I haven't been in the hobby for all that long, this post might not be as intimidating as many others' collections. But since this is a first for me, I'm still excited

Last Saturday, my GF moved into my place. My games had been taking up space in my wardrobe, on top of my wardrobe and on top of my bookcase.




(Forgot to take a proper 'before' picture. That bookcase was as good as full.)

But with her clothes taking up a lot of space in my wardrobe, I needed that space.
So we went to Ikea and bought two smaller bookcases to fit next to the bed.



Which left me with an entire bookcase to use for games. Where I was running short on space before, I now need more games to fill the case!



So it's not THAT much, but it's a first for me. And I'm happy about the move-in, of course

Ahh, the sickness has set in, and it makes it's way into the bloodstream...soon they will move and he'll need a special room for the games...and more shelves, and then more, and more until...

The games collection takes over another human!!!!

The plan is working....

Hm, maybe I SHOULD turn that 12x4m (about 40x13 foot) room I bought this house for into a game room, rather than a recording studio
Choices, choices... It would allow me space for around 5000 games on shelves around the walls alone.

There's no simple explanation for anything important any of us do, and yeah the human tragedy consists of the necessity of living with the consequences, under pressure, under pressure. -Courage (For Hugh Maclennan): The Tragically Hip

Happy first bookcase full. I recently had to get bookcase 2 (albeit bookcase 1 was only 2/3 width, 24" not 31").

So, after buying bookcase 2 only 1 thing happens... Challenge accepted.

I see you have a lot of extra space there laugh, hopefully you don't find a place that would help you... fill it. (happy music'ing also)

Games: Regarding my favorite theme of 'Fantasy', I'm hoping for fewer 'card' games and more 'board' games.

Awesome! I still remember the day when I decided that I finally had enough games to purchase a shelving unit. It was awesome to finally have a dedicated gaming storage area out in the open. Congrats!
