Weekly Challenge #1 - The Collection


How long have you been in the hobby? How long have you been collecting?

I’ve been in the hobby for about 8 or so years. Started with #Catan and the usual mass market games and very slowly switched over to actual hobby games. My first hobby game was #XCOM: The Board Game. I started collecting hobby games in earnest about 2 years ago and my collection has really exploded since then. 

How would you describe your board game preferences?

I like board games. I’ll try pretty much any game as long as it looks fun. I do, of course, like some more than others. I’m a big fan of engine/tableau building, deck building, and 4X type games. I also really enjoy a good dungeon crawl too. My least favorite games are abstract ones, as I tend to gravitate towards games with a good theme.  

What are the favorites in your collection? Why?

Im a huge Star Wars fan, so my absolute favorite games are my ones with that IP. #Star Wars Imperial Assault and #Star Wars: Rebellion are fantastic. I’m also a huge fan of #Gloomhaven and am proud to have that in my collection. I love these games. 

What is your least favorite (or least played) game in your collection? Why?

Least favorite game in my collection is #Galaxy Trucker. I snagged it based on the SUSD review but it just hasn’t panned out so far. 

What do you like about your collection? Is there anything you'd change?

Im proud of the collection I’ve built so far. I think I’ve got a great mix of games that I love to play. Solo or multiplayer.

 I would change where I store it. Currently it hides in our basement storage closet which is indeed functional but not very attractive. I doubt my wife will ever let it out of there though, so it is what it is. 

Which game would you absolutely LOVE to add to your collection and why?

The next big game I want to add will be #Xia: Legends of a Drift System. I’ll probably ask for this around Christmas time. Otherwise I’ve gotten to the point where I’ve acquired most of the major games I was looking to pick up. I’m sure more will come along but for now I’m very happy. 

Feel free to add anything else to this!

Anything else to this!

Lots of great games in there.  My son and I really enjoy Rebellion as well.  It's a long game though so it doesn't reach the table that often.

Yes it’s a beast to get to the table. But when you finally do... mmmmmm.

Had no idea you were thinking about #Xia: Legends of a Drift System. What attracted you to the game? (I still know nothing about it)

And I agree, you have so many great games but storage needs improvement! Same issue for me hahaha, although, I don't have that many games to store yet. I might just put up a shelf in our garage/my wife's studio

It’s functional, which means I’ll probably never get to upgrade.

Double post?

Anyway, awesome collection! You've got a bunch of games I'd like to try some day! And color me jealous about #Baseball Highlights: 2045 ;)
