That's not me - I still say "I must play it now"... and then adult responsibilities get in the way and I have to do other things. Also, I don't always buy games to play them. Sometimes I buy them for artwork, sometimes to read the rules and explore the design, sometimes for the bits that come in the box... there are many other reasons besides play.

So as a kid, it was my parents telling me I couldn't play games... as an adult, its society and the demands of society (bosses saying get to work, city ordinances saying mow your yard, etc) that says I can't play games.

(Sorry, 2017 has been bad - I've gone from 24-30 game plays per month in 2016 to maybe 1 game a month this year... going to 10, then 5, and now basically nothing... needless to say, it makes me a little cranky.)

I play my new games once they get worked into the rotation of game night.

I won't buy another game until I've played the previous one.

Uh.. yeah. I am pretty sure I have more games still in shrink than the total count of games I've ever played.

I call the stored game shelving the walls of 'potential fun' - hopefully to be converted to 'kinetic fun' some day.

Yeah I also have too many games left unplayed... I get so enthusiastic about buying (and having) them, but I keep forgetting that when I order games, I can't order the time and the gameplaying friends that are needed with it. >_<'
