Post your board game collection!

What collection of board games have you been building up over the years?
Which of your board games are you most itching to play again?
Here's my collection that's been 10 years in the making:

Notably missing are Quantum (1st edition) and Through the Ages: A New Story of Civilization, both of which I keep on my desk at the office and am hoping to play some time soon.

I’ve gaming for about a year and a half. Dove right in, I guess you’d say. I always liked playing games as a kid, and did not know about this “new wave” of gaming until recently. Loving Terraforming Mars, Gaia Project, Castles of Burgundy, Clans of Caledonia, Jaipur, and Raids, among others. In the process of filing the new KS arrivals (October and as crazy!).

Somehow over the years I've amassed enough that cataloging became necessary, and I'm kind of glad it did. Aside from actually being able to see everything at a glance, it's wonderfully helpful to know what all I have when I'm out and about so I don't accidentally get a duplicate. boardgamegeek.com/collection/user/SuperAwesome
Current wanting to spend some time with Alien Frontiers, Fury of Dracula, Photosynthesis, Shipwreck Arcana, Spyfall, Ticket to Ride, Ricochet Robots, and the Star Trek TNG Interactive VHS game (because it's so delightfully silly).
So much room for expansion!

Started from Pandemic now we're here.
Great topic, and great collections! I'm actually getting ready to downsize (even though my tendencies are to fight against it as long as possible), so can't contribute. The best thing for my purchasing habits was when Thought Hammer closed down. Kickstarter is threatening to pull me back in, however...

Just to chime in on the solo games comment -- Agricola is actually really fun to play solo too.

Lately, I have been playing Roads & Boats solo, and have found that a great game for it.
My Collection started when I got Panzer Leader in 1976. It is now 700, Euros take up around 100 of that. Greatest amount of acquisition has been since I setup the game den 4 years ago..about 1 new game a month

Very impressive! Great to see an excellent selection of SPI and Avalon Hill games. Reminders from the "Golden Age" of map-&-counter games.

My own collection is about 3 years in the making, mostly begun by the very drop that brought me here: the complete (at the time) collection of Dominion. Since, it's been fueled by this site, Kickstarter, and some awesome local game shops. =D Lately, Ascension: Storm of Souls (with the Immortal Heroes expansion), Quarriors, and Tzolk'in have been well-played.
I've listed my collection on BGG: http://boardgamegeek.com/collection/user/auzzy
And here's a picture of a large portion of it:

Acquire, what a great game! I don't see people with it too often.

Good to see Evolution. I don’t think it gets enough love. I particularly like it with the Flight expansion.
One day, I will not wake up. Thats what my friends always say when they come over.

Yes. My sister use to live here. I was going to change the wallpaper, but changed that idea last second. Need to update my pic. Got my ultimate gameing table now.

I have a shocking confession to make: although I grew up on board and role playing games (D&D, Car Wars, Star Fleet Battles, OGRE, Avalon Hill wargames like D-Day), I hadn't played them in nearly 30 years after getting into guitar and music in middle school and high school...
Then along comes Massdrop's Hobby Shop category, and in the course of barely a year, I have been thoroughly and hopelessly sucked down the rabbit hole, and have become an abject Collector. Similar to my book, videogame and movie habits, I've somehow sunk to the depths of researching, hoarding, organizing, and compiling lists of Haves & Wants, spending far more time curating and stockpiling than even consuming or enjoying.
I have even found myself obsessing over game inserts, organization solutions and sleeving... The abyss grows ever deeper.
Sadly, there is no AA for boardgame collecting.
My only hope is to find some fellow human beings in my locale to help me actually play some of these games, so I can call myself an actual practicing Gamer, and redeem myself from the purgatory of Collecting...
Redemption begins with honesty and accountability, so here I catalog my sins: ===================================================

Are you on Board Game Geek? It's a MUST stop for all addicts!!!!
I've had to build two sets of shelves this year to house the burgeoning collection. The centerpiece are the games I own in the bgg top 200. The miniature and card games shelves have two more levels I need to prep and mount, which should happen in the next few weeks. The 4 foot the tier is my oldest shelving, and houses worker placement/tile laying/kids and the ever popular etcetera.

Not appearing include food chain magnate, broom service, and several other less notable titles. Addiction is a good thing, right?

I don't know about good, but in this case, it's a beautiful thing indeed.
Here's my collection after about 15 years in the hobby.

How's Spector Ops? That one is on the forefront of my radar right now.
GoingTopShelf
Love it as a 2 player game. 3 is the same game just with a extra player that adds extra time. Haven't played with more.

There's some overlap in the pictures. I took them about a year ago for my game group so they could use it as reference to pick out games for me to bring. Because it's a year old some games aren't in the picture yet. Several GMT games (American Civil War, Liberty or Death, and Genesis), AH's Empire in Arms, Scythe, Shadows of Brimstone, Splendor, and a few others.

It was my iPad ;-). She doesn't own any electronics that are less than ten years old except for her flip phone. She's got a great music system and tons of vinyl because she never made the leap to CD's. Anyway, the storage is two 5x5 and a2x4 IKEA Expedit shelving units in a 9'x9' room that is also home to my painting table.
search
That is some serious setup! Color me jealous ;O)
Don't see any hex and die games from AH, SPI, GMT and the like. That's kinda where the bulk of mine is at
Not the greatest pictures, but this is my collection after moving across the country and having to pare it down. I've been collecting since about 2003. The biggest hits right now are Scythe, Fuse, and Dead of Winter.

Good to see that Factory Fun made the cut! I love that game a lot.
jxliu
Yep, it's a good one. I have never tried Factory Funner, but someday...
I'm a huge fan of BANG lately, despite the instructions. lol
MikeMD
My friends and I used to play BANG whenever we got together. We'd mash the expansion into the base game to play huge games of 10 to 14 players. First couple turns were always super chaotic. BANG is one of those games where all of your rivalries seep into the game and cause a bunch of unintentional team killing.
I love Robo Rally. Will have to take a pic of my (comparatively paltry) collection later.
AlexPk
I really love the ideas in the Robo Rally game (setting up commands, not knowing your opponents' commands and trying to guess them, trying to push people or shoot them), but the execution steps always turn out to be a chore and takes away from the fun a bit, especially in 4+ players games. Having to go around looking at or asking for the biggest number to move for every step in each round is just a lot of tedious work, I wish there was a better way to execute them.
bigi
I'll bet the game would be great as a digital game. So the computer just handles all the leg work.
