Reading the post and responses wondering about whether or not we consider board gaming an expensive hobby made me start wondering about our buying habits.
I only buy games based on extensive research to determine if I/my group will enjoy it. This is partly because I enjoy the research, and partly because I have a very tight budget for this sort of thing.
I know some buy with more of a collector mindset, "I want all the stuff for..."
For others they enjoy buying based all the hotness. Maybe FOMO plays into their purchases.
I don't see anything wrong with any of these models. We all enjoy things for different reasons and that's fine. I am sorta curious,however, where the majority of ya'll fall?
Are there other types of "acquirers" that I'm missing?
