    Do you play solo?

    I haven't played it in a while, I should really pick it up again. Too many games.

    I have no idea how people manage collections of 100+ and I know a few people like that. I've got 32 games now and I'm so lost every time I decide to play one as I basically love all of them.

    Circle undone received. I *love* these new investigators... Every single one is interesting and unique.

    Heading out next week to pick up the Return boxes...if Iím spending money on storage I might as well do that. I have one Dunwich pack left to get and that cycle is complete so itíll be nice to have them organised a bit better. Theyíre strewn around at the mo and it looks a bit messy.

    I whittled down the collection a while back, so Iím down to a few LCGs (LOTR and AH) of which LOTR never gets a re-print. Well, the Saga boxes March time and thatís about your lot.

    So, in my infinite wisdom, Iíve decided to just play AH for a bit and I think if I also grab an Ultimate Guard Flip box I can take one investigator plus adventure to work \o/

    This might not work so well. Gotta give it a whirl.

    @Nemesis

    My return to dunwich box holds all the core campaign and return to night of the zealot and return to dunwich in it. They're a decent size.

    4th scenario of Carcossa done last night. Made it with only 1 turn remaining :D

    I too have no played it for a while, I solo it with two characters and don't have a great ratio of wins, but still I enjoy playing enough so I don't mind losses!

    Have a collection of close to 400 now and yes, so many games gather a bit too much dust.
    I usually pick up the games that have not have a play for some time and take them with me to conventions, to give them some love.
    But some of the games in my collection are difficult to find by normal means, which makes me reluctant to sell them on. And for now, I'm still OK with space to store them.

    Watched a play-through of Reichbusters over the weekend too, and felt weak willed enough to late pledge for it...
    Looks so damn cool

    In case itís of interest to anyone, Booksetc have London Second Edition up for less than £22. Iíve liked the sound of it for a while (a well regarded Martin Wallace engine builder), so for that price I figured what the hell?

    They also have a few other Osprey Games products in stock, most at compelling prices. The Lost Expedition in particular is superb.

    Meanwhile, I'm designing a cardholder for all the little cards in Leaving Earth that a colleague of mine will 3D print. The idea is to have 4 stackable trays that will hold 4 different stacks of cards each. They will fit into the box when stacked on top and I will make a lid that hold the cards in place.

    It's really fun so far.(the bit where it takes 5 hrs to do a print is a bummer though)

    Claustraphobia - best packaging I've ever seen of any board game. So safe. Games looks a bit of fun too.

    Got my first test print of the cardholder today. It had warped slightly and I bunged it up when trying to remove the suport material. But it's so cool that something I made on a website is now a ting of plastic in my hand.

    Will try the cards and improve the design this evening.

    Anyone played Dogs of War?

    Played it twice and really like it despite being awful at it.

    Xia is a lot of fun.
    Took us a few turns to get the rules "right", but loved exploring, having a free option on how to play. Added all the expansion modules from the start and they all seem to work well

    Insert looking real nice!

    My latest is that i've finally played Scythe, absolutely loved it. Even after learning of some big rule mistakes and playing 2 player. Seems simple enough to teach my regular not so hardcore gaming group eventually.

    Also nabbed a super cheap second hand but sealed Argent the Consortium. Never heard of it until recently but actually excited to play it for the first time soon as it seems completely different to anything else I have. It's worker placement but with a lot of interaction and less worrying about VP's (which i'm trying to find titles that don't rely on too much). Anyone else played it?

    Saw sense and left the Return To boxes on the shelf. Xia caught my eye though, as itís done before, but itís a while bit chunk of money for the solo option.

    Ships though !

    What are all these new games being mentioned? Feels as if I'm losing touch.
