We have a lot of games! A lot of them don't get played because they are put away in a large cupboard and are hard to get to! I'd like to display them attractively in our family room so they are not out of sight, out of mind! They don't need to all be displayed, but at least 20-30 of them so they get played more.

How do you store your games? Pictures would be helpful.

Thank you!

We have a storage in our living room, but we did not want to have the games in sight all the time (too messy). So we have a hybrid:




Behind all the white doors are games. If we have gamers around, we open them all. Otherwise they are closed.

Ps. I'm not at home, these were the only pics i had available. Sorry for the quality, and even more: sorry for the games on display. This is the shelve with the "we want to get rid of these" games.

I don't have pictures right now, but if you are near an IKEA, look up their Kallax line. I am partial to the 2 block by 4 block ones personally, as they are sturdy yet easy enough to move by myself.

Wow, those are great! Very nice look and I LOVE being able to keep some of them "covered" at times. Where did you find them?

They're made by a local furniture maker. I don't think he exports to the usa. But maybe, if you are handy yourself, you can make it yourself?
If you want to, sent me a geekmail. I can send you some more pics.

Plz, plz, plz tell me you do boardgame shop trading for life, or board game design and not just a regular player. goo Otherwise, I will just sink in jelly.
I don't think I have enough kidneys to sell to build it up. cry
That's like dream come true - before you play your whole collection thoroughly you'll already forget the first games you tried and can play them as new ones.
