I have reached a new stage in my gaming life: Previously Owned

Ages of Gamers:

* The Discovery : As you discover strategic games

* The Ramp Up : The first few years where you spend thousands of dollars

* The I Gotta have that Grail Game : Where you look for those hard to find ones.

* The Cult of the New : Where you focus on the cult of the new.

* The Leveling : Where you are less interested in everything flashy new when they classic games fit the the need, and only go for something really new.

* The Culling : Where you start to sell off some of the games you don't play so much, or that just do not make the cut.

* The Fine Tuning : Where you focus on each game in your collection being what you want to play.

* The Previously Owned : Where you look and see that you have 492 games previously owned, and 490 owned. The previously owned passed the owned. Admittedly, I was looking to see when this would happen, as I have been fine tuning my collection to what I want to play.

* Stability : I want to stay here for a while, and enjoy my games with my gamer friends. I really do NOT want to go on to, well, I cannot say it. The day or days where you must essentially part with your collection, or someone else must fire sale your collection for you.

Let's let that be another 40 years down the road, please.


Side note to self:
* Last game tagged Owned: Evolution Climate
* Last game sold: Hard to say from the BGG FLEA. It may be Nuns on the Run.

I used to be addicted to the hokey pokey, but then I turned myself around.

Next is The get off my lawnsing, when your currently owned is a small fraction of your previously owned, but you've never sold games for financial (etc) reasons.

Owned: 161
Prev. Owned: 631

P.S. I would be greatly surprised if that was a valid dibs.

I would call this the cross country relocation based on my experience. The NYC apartment is also acceptable.

Solamar has been around A LONG TIME, Debbie!

His soul has been snatched up before my time here on BGG. (Probably by Chapel)

I bought my first used game online over 10 years ago from Sterling - Rette Sich Wer Kann (Lifeboats). Happy to have contributed to your new status.

Also, given my special place in his board gaming life, obviously, I'm claiming his soul regardless of whoever dibsed it already.
