Has anyone found a way to maintain the quality of boars and components. I spray the boxes with clear acrylic or enamel to cut down on the scuffing of the artwork, but I am not sure I should try to do that to the boards. I could try it on a board I really dont care about...problem is I like them all too much. Does anyone have a suggestion about maintaining the condition of boards and components?

I sleeve my cards and am just careful with games. I have a game of Risk that is about 20ish years old now and played a few hundred times. There is some wear and tear on it, but nothing major or disastrous...

Some wear gives the game some character.

All I really care about are keeping components which convey private info from getting marked and distinguishable. To that end, I sleeve cards of games which are more costly to replace, but that's about it. I don't mind if the board or tiles get scuffed.
