I started collecting back in 2005 when I bought a Stargate. Initially my wife was really excited...she was less so when Lord of the Rings showed up a few months later. :) I've bought and sold close to 50 games over the past 15 years. I used to fixed and restore games but these days I mainly just play and make the occasional mod. Used to play in some tourneys until I my kids got older, now I spend my weekends running to sporting events for them.
I run a game room based website here:
Most people come for:
and for my custom Chexx cup holders I sell.
If anyone would like to write some articles fo me on some cool game room stuff I pay. :)
Would really like to get some newer games but sadly most of them have exceeded my budget. :( My oldest son, who's now into pinball, is constantly asking to get some more games. He might be one of the better young players in the nation, having reached Iron Maiden's wizard mode and put up 11.5 billion on STTNG.
