Well, I figured it was time to give in to peer pressure. I've taken pictures of my junk and I'm now going to reveal my goods to the world. For those with particular sensibilities I have to warn you that I prefer to do this horizontally. With few exceptions I just never felt comfortable getting on with it vertically.

So, how do I fit over 800 games in a New York apartment, well it goes a little something like this. For the first time, through the miracle of the internet, here it is for all to see.

When you enter if you look to your left you will see a small shelf filled to the ceiling.


If you continued on into the living room and were to hypothetically stand on the couch and look down you might just see a view exactly like this.


This is what is mostly going on behind the couch. I couldn't get a good shot of all the games behind our comfy sofa.


This back corner is where most of my older larger games reside.


We just had relatives stay so the recycling is shamefully overflowing into the shot, but this is kind of an overflow for many of the games and books, plus, mail! This gets stuff going in it both ways so there are a quite a number of small games on the other side not pictured here.


This is one of the shelves in the office. The wire hanger is for APers, Joan Crawford fans and poor sports.


Now we get to the bulk of my collection (finally). More back office hijinx.




Well, I hope you enjoyed the tour, one day you can drop by for a few games.

Funny thing is, I *HAVE* wondered how you store 800+ games in an NYC apartment. I struggle to house 30 or so wherever I'm living.

I like that you don't have any of those behind closed doors.

Can't wait to play someday soon!

What I'm wondering is: say I dropped by, and, just for the sake of argument, say you didn't slam the door and hide when I arrived, so I ask if you'd like to play Game X (Where X=1-800); What are the odds that you know the rules of said game well enough to teach, without having to spend three hours rereading the rulebook?

Nice dartboard.

I'm surprised how little chinchilla damage there is. I was expecting lots of chewed boxes and defecation.

LOL!! I was looking at your pics this morning and Mystery Bob looked over my shoulder.

I mentioned to him that it was incredible the amount of games you had.

He responds: "You mean that's just not a lot of different shots of the same games/bookshelf?"

Me: "No, and it's all in a NYC apartment!"

shake

Poor man, he doesn't realize...............

Did you see your copy of Viking Fury there. You were so close to it, and still it remains.

So close, and yet, so far. Kinda like the gameplay.

Bastard.

I got my board in April. Has it been that long since you've been down here?
