Leveling up - just got my first Kallax

I’m way more excited than I have any right to be but I now have a Kallax to hopefully store all the games!! Expect before and after pictures at some point once it’s built.

Hey, who let this guy in here before he had a Kallax?

Haha JK! I actually do have a Kallax but purely by accident. I got it before getting into board games, and later discovered it is the shelf of choice for games.

I’m sure as soon as you found that out that slowly, cube by cube, you started filling games in?

Haha, I've taken over 6 of the 16 cubes so far

haha! nice! Soon, you'll have a basement full of Kallax

Haha, I do not intend to fill the whole thing. I still have books in it I want to keep!

Lol. This sounds just like me.

All of us honestly haha

JamesReid860 Supporter46 days ago | 1 point[-]

Hahaha! Apparently I slipped through ;)

JamesReid860 Supporter40 days ago | 1 point[-]

Huh... it’s not letting me post pictures for some reason.

Definitely exciting!!!! I don't have an IKEA in Maine so we went with a sturdy shelf from Target, but it's exciting when you get a nice place to store your games!

JamesReid860 Supporter46 days ago | 1 point[-]

It really is! And my current shelf is overflowing!

HooperGirl 46 days ago | 1 point[-]

Not going to lie.  Mine is overflowing too!  I need another shelf.  lololol

JamesReid860 Supporter46 days ago | 1 point[-]

Lol! It is a crazy collector problem we have.

Could be worse addictions than board games!  I'm okay with it.  :-)

Congrats! I have a few knockoffs, so my leveling up is kind of fake... :)

JamesReid860 Supporter47 days ago | 1 point[-]

Haha! So long as you be got storage you’re fine 

Skurvy5 Supporter47 days ago | 1 point[-]

Nice! This is a goal of mine to achieve sometime. Can’t wait to see the pictures. 

JamesReid860 Supporter47 days ago | 1 point[-]

I’m hoping my collection will fit! I don’t have a very large one but I only got a 3x4 so here’s hoping!

Thanks!

Congrats :) and I'm looking forward to the picture! So, vertical or horizontal? haha

Skurvy5 Supporter45 days ago | 1 point[-]

Where is this picture?

JamesReid860 Supporter45 days ago | 1 point[-]

Haha well I was all set to do it and then one of the cabinets in our kitchen fell off of the wall... it was full of glasses and mugs so there was glass everywhere. So there went my Kallax building time but it will come soon. 

Skurvy5 Supporter45 days ago | 1 point[-]

That sounds shatteringly awful. How did a cabinet fall off the wall?

JamesReid860 Supporter45 days ago | 1 point[-]

But it literally just fell off of the wall with no provocation. Really strange. My house is possessed. 

Skurvy5 Supporter45 days ago | 1 point[-]

Welp now you are dispossessed of all those dishes. 

JamesReid860 Supporter45 days ago | 1 point[-]

For sure. Now we need to repossess some others

JamesReid860 Supporter45 days ago | 1 point[-]

I'm going to just ignore that pun

Skurvy5 Supporter45 days ago | 1 point[-]

I worked hard to come up with that one!

JamesReid860 Supporter45 days ago | 1 point[-]

A little too hard...

JamesReid860 Supporter47 days ago | 1 point[-]

Thanks! I’m trying to decide but I think I’m going to try vertical for most 

Marshwiggle92 Supporter46 days ago | 1 point[-]

That is a fine display of wisdom.

Thank you good sir!
