My Dungeon magazine collection is destined for storage. Once upon a time, I thought the fifth shelf would be for my D&D books. Then I got into boardgames...

- mostly wargames (including 2 shelves of ASL)
- Dungeons & Dragons (4 shelves) and boardgames
- the rest of my boardgames.

...and this isn't a big collection by some of the collections on the 'geek!

The sad thing is that there are about 7 boardgames that aren't on those shelves because they're at work or in my car... and that I don't think I have the room for on my shelves. Well, not unless I displace a few more fantasy novels, which I may well have to do.

Cheers,
Merric

Afraid I'm at home over Easter... playing some of these boardgames.

And... I live near Waubra.

Cheers!

Hey, where'd you get those photos of my house?

Actually,my collection is a lot less organized. I've got games stored in four different rooms, which can be a pain when I'm looking for a specific game and can't remember which place I've stashed it.

And don't get me started on my RPG collection, spawned from playing D&D since 1979 ...

Merric, it's a (rolls die) pleasure to meet you.

I seem to remember that you're a big Warhammer Quest fan. Where's your bits? Judging from your microbadges, I'd expect to see a wall or two of unpainted lead - are you holding out on us?


Are you sure that's the game you mean?

I really enjoy BattleTech, but I hate painting miniatures. (To the left are boxes of a lot of D&D Miniatures - 2,000 or so...)

Cheers!

Hey man, toss some of the D&D crap then you will have plenty of room for more board games.

You could clear up some space with an auction. I see a couple games in there that I'd bid on.

Which ones?

Not that I'm likely to get rid of them, but it's nice knowing which games I have that other people covet...

I was about to comment that you had some room next to your Heroscape game, but then I increased magnification on the picture and saw something tucked away under the stairs. Yep, you're screwed...

Actually the roof, not the stairs.

But yes...

...and not stored there are
* Battlestar Galactica
* Brass
* Carcassonne
* Dominion
* Tigris & Euphrates
* Cosmic Encounter
* Transeuropa
...

Cheers!

Yes. Two campaigns - a Greyhawk homebrew, occasionally using some of TLG's Castle Zagyg products, and the Wizards Heroic series of adventures.

Cheers!

Heh, I wondered where the 4th edition core books were. I'm in a DM-less campaign using the Mythic Game Master Emulator. 4th is a whole lot more suited to spontaneous play than 3.5 was, at least for us n00bs.


Also: I must applaud Reaper's Gale on the bottom shelf. Steven Erikson rocks.

He really, really does. I've denied myself getting Toll the Hounds in trade paperback format since I'd like the entire series to fit together on the shelf, but waiting for it to come out in the smaller form has been terribly frustrating as I haven't read it yet!

Cheers!
