Main Topic: Game Collecting & Collections

In this episode’s main topic segment, Josh and Kenny discuss the reasons for why they add games to their respective shelves and what their long term views are for their collections of games.  Are board game purchases investments?  What elements do a game need to have to make it worthy of a spot on the shelf?  Does scarcity matter?  Is there a space limitation?  Is having all of the post-release content (expansions, upgrades) critical?  Listen to find out what Josh and Kenny are looking for in games to make them “collection worthy”.

  1. Capital Lux — best prices.
  2. Hansa Teutonica — best prices.
  3. Champions of Midgard — best prices.
