Hi r/boardgames! My dad and I built a gaming table during the lockdown earlier this year and I finally got around to getting the pictures together. Game collection is at the end of the album.
-How long have you been involved in the hobby?-
About 8 years. I loved board games as a kid, but never got to play much afterwards. TableTop finally sold me so I went to my local FLGS and got introduced with a few games and I was hooked.
-My Favorite Game(s)-
This is always so hard. Great Western Trail, Lisboa, Fields of Arle, Codenames, and the campaign games (Gloomhaven, Kingdom Death, etc) are all great.
-My Newest Games-
Charterstone (So new it's not even pictured!) - My previous group years ago played about 3 games and never finished, so I got a new copy for my current group and am itching to start again.
Yedo Deluxe - A great favorite of our group, so it's nice getting a fresh 'reboot' of the game with some nicer components.
Teotihuacan - Honestly I've been iffy on some of the expansions, but I really enjoy this.
-What would you change about your collection if you could?-
Ugh, it needs a culling since it obviously doesn't fit. Some games I kickstarted and I just can't bring myself to get rid of it. Others I just like the art / aesthetic it adds. I've also won games in raffles and just toss them on the shelf because who knows why. Some games just really need to go because I know I will never play them again such as Fallen City of Karez, Storm the Castle!, Monolith, Legendary (and expansions), Puzzle Strike, and Steam Park.
Kingdom Death - I was an original backer and love the minis and campaign (although it can be very unfair at times). I played this with my previous group a lot. The Dragon King sitting up there is just epic and I love it. :)
Thanks for taking a look!
Yes, that's Boba Fett dragging Frodo to Barad-dur.
Gray Fox was hand made myself and I also made a full costume for it out of foam. The Loki, Tron, and Space Marine helmet were commissioned. I have a Loki costume and was planning on a space marine and tron, but never got around to it. The Doom and Nazgul helmets were official productions.
