Looking through the list of upcoming Kickstarters, I wondered who is buying all these games? Through the years, I’ve bought plenty of board games, and now only own a fraction of them. Guess what? I still have more games than I will ever need.
I notice the same trend with my Steam games. I have games I will probably never play. My life is just not long enough.
If a game looks cool, I naturally want to have it. Many games are brought out only once. Or not at all. They just sit on the shelf, waiting for their game night .
There is a definite lack of practical thinking behind most of my purchases and looking at the long list of upcoming games, I am not alone. But there are people who play just one board game. If the game’s deep enough, that’s fine, but it’s just not my style. Who’s buying the same games as me, letting them sit lonely on the shelf?
