I was browsing through an (outdated) 2009 Guiness World Record book and noticed the biggest Board Game colelction was 1,345 by Brian Arnett in 2007.

It appears to still be current according to the website:
http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/Search/Details/Largest-c...

Given that many people on here have collections well over that number such as Alan How, I would have thought someone here might have contested it assuming their "owned" list is mostly correct?

I also couldn't find any record of "Brian Arnett" on here shake and he calls himself a gamer???

They are probably all the different versions of Monopoly.

That's funny. Exactly what came to my mind also. Heck I could probably have over 500 of just Colleges and Universities alone.

I'm thinking Tom Vasel probably has 1,345 just on one of his many shelves!

Well, Tom had to unload a lot of his collection when he moved from Korea. But the point is still well taken.

Aldie, for one, currently lists a collection of 2,275.
