This is a blatant example of frivolous geek gold spending.

282 games plus 139 expansions = 421 total

67% games
33% expansions

Not too bad a ratio. A little heavier on expansions than I would have guessed without looking.


EDIT: Whoops! I thought 421 seemed a touch high. Fixing the math...

282 total, 139 of which are expansions

51% games
49% expansions

That's more than just a bit heavier on expansions than I would have guessed. But then again, I do have a nearly complete ASL collection...

You have 282 total.

"Board games" in your profile includes expansions.


For me: 75 games, 13 are expansions, so:

82.6% games
17.4% expansions

I own 192 games of which 76 are expansions, so 40% expansions.

I'm actually surprised it isn't more, as I only buy games I like and I'm a completionist, so if an expansion exists for a game I own - I MUST have it.

Happy gaming!

295 games, of which 40 are listed as expansions. So that's roughly:

86% Boardgames
14% Expansions


Some games expand very well, and I intend to keep getting the expansions as they appear. I've learned that others don't expand so well, and Helen and I are getting more picky about which expansions we buy. We have one or two games where we enjoy the base game so much that we have seen no reason to try the expansions even though we own them.

Funny you should post this thread. Just the other day I was idly wondering for the first time what my ratio is. This is as good of a time as any to find out.

Currently I have listed 328 games, 49 of which are expansions. So that's:

85.1% Boardgames
14.9% Expansions


As I looked this up, I was surprised to see that I have a few missing from my BGG Collection list, and a couple that I've traded away that need to be removed. Even after I correct that, the ratio should be about the same.

I have 19 21 expansions, 113 non-expansions, comes in at 15%.

Of those 19 21, 14 16 are for World in Flames and two for Civilization.

And three of the WIF expansions (Patton in Flames, America in Flames, and Days of Decision III) can be played on their own.

Oh just realized that Days of Decision I and II (which naturally, I own) don't show up as expansions, bug DOD III does.. Guess my expansion ratio just went up to 21/132, 16%![/-][/-]

237 titles, 61 of which are expansions.

That's about a 75/25 split.

52 boargames out of which 18 are expansions. So 34,6 %.

I think Arkham Horror, Descent: Journeys in the Dark and Runebound (Second Edition) are mostly to blame for this (altough I AM an expansion nut).

46/249, or 18.5% of my collection is expansions, the majority of these being Heroscape, Memoir' 44, Commands & Colors: Ancients, and Axis & Allies War at Sea expansions. I am a real sucker for those game systems!
