As I sit once again and look at games that:
a. have not been played
b. have been played and enjoyed
c. played and derided
d. played and left unsure about
e. bought for a reason long forgotten…
I am once again in two minds about keeping versus collecting. Playing and discarding vs playing and treasuring.
Where do we draw the line on keeping a title you wont play again, but love it due to the fact it is a ‘classic’. Does a digital copy suffice? – If you really love it you can print the parts and play again or play on VASSAL?
If I sell CityFight because I wont play it solo, should I also sell EiA? The question boils down to preferences today for games versus what I might like at a later date. As of today I lean towards bigger monster games, that are more involved. Tactical games across eras. But with titles in the Napoleonic era, how often will I replay The Gamers Austerlitz? Likely never. Will I invest the effort to really try to understand A Most Dangerous Time? Is Where there is discord destined to be like every other solo game purchased – sold off?
Or am I in a funk and should just chill out and not make a rash decision? First world wargamer problems. Perhaps it is time to just buy some storage boxes for the excess.
