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.

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...

I don't know that I have any right now, other than the ones my family will play with me, and the ones I can play by byself- Carcassonne ,Fluxxx, the Tiny Epic games, and some two player games like Citadel. The others are just sitting around- I haven't even punched most of them, since when I was actually able to play, we mostly played my friends' copies.

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

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.
One day, I will not wake up. Thats what my friends always say when they come over.

They might be right - these shelves look too flimsy for such load >.<

Well I moved out and now I am safe and sound with my new set up.
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.

toadflax
How's Spector Ops? That one is on the forefront of my radar right now.

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.

That is some serious setup! Color me jealous ;O)
