My Game Collection–REALLY!
Posted by sodaklady on April 4, 2007
My April Fool’s Day joke backfired on me a little bit; it has been the most popular post since I started this new blog and I’m feeling a little bad that I probably disappointed a few people. To make it up to everyone, here’s pictures of my board game collection. It’s now too large to fit in one place, so games can be found in several places around the house.
This is the main shelves, located in the library. Sorry about the glare. I tried not using the flash but then the pictures turned out blurry so this is the best of the lot. That’s Cross Cribb who’s title you can’t see.
These are hiding in the bottom of the bar which looks like an old-fashioned ice box. It’s near the kitchen, our main gaming spot.
The end table holds my Kosmos 2-player games and a couple others that are favorites with my husband and me. Two copies of Fjords! ? Yes, I think it’s an interesting change to play with a double set of tiles sometimes, but only 6 farm houses.
A few of our current favorites and the basket full of card games have a special place in the kitchen where they’re easy to reach. The two chunks of wood on the left are the card-holders my husband made years ago when our daughter was learning to play pinnocle and couldn’t hold 13 cards. They’ve seen a fair amount of use, usually for Command & Colors: Ancients, which doesn’t come with card stands; or when Mike and Teresa come over with their baby so they can keep their hands free.
There you have it. I hope you’ll forgive me for my joke and enjoy browsing through my collection.
