I got this shelf at Target for $180, and I love it so much I think it needs some promotion on here. I think this is the perfect game shelf. First, its huge, 7 feet tall, and as wide as 2 normal book shelves. Its completely hard wood, no particle board, and can hold a ton of weight. The shelf is open in back, has no edges on the sides, and extends horizontally way farther than a normal book shelf. Because of these open sides, it easily hold as much as 3 normal book shelves. If you have the extra money for a game shelf, I think this the way to go thumbsup

the only thing I see wrong with this is all of the empty space. You clearly haven't slipped far enough into depravity....I want to see games hanging off that thing in every directions (all the easier since it doesn't have sides) by the end of winter!

Me likey! We may be moving soon and, thus, in need of new home furnishings. I'm sure I can convince the better half we need a new shelf set.

Can you tell me what dimensions the support beams are? They look to be about 1"x1". Also, are the shelves anchored to the supports in any way, or are they just slid into place?

You say it can handle a lot of weight, but honestly, those shelves look thin.
I have a shelf made with 1x12 hard pine and even it is buckling under the pressure of my collection. The only shelf I've ever had that could handle weight was a maple cabinet I had as a kid. the shelves were 1.5" maple with an 8" depth. Sturdy enough to hold even my scuba gear.

I've gone through about 8 bookshelves in the last ten years.
Admittedly, my programming reference library is more punishing than my game collection, but it can also do a fair bit of damage to a bookshelf.

I don't know the exact measurements, but they are around 1 x 1 x 1 x 1" The shelves slide into place, and then are screwed into the beams.

The shelf can handle any amount of games you can place on it.

Thanks. I like the design; I may build my own set.
