Yeah... so I have reached an rpg collection saturation point.
Like many here I get sucked into buying tons of new games. Usually I vuy them not even with the intention to play them but to see how the rules work or to see how they tweaked a system I already know in hopes that they somehow incorporate all my house rules into the ultimate edition i've always wanted!!!!! SPOLIER: that game will never be made.
Sometimes I buy them just for the art...
So I have set out to reduce my rpg collection to eliminate as much redundancy as possible.
For example, I have come to realize that I don't need umpteen d20-6attribute-highfantasy-dungeoncrawling games. I'm good with one (yes, I know some of you will say zero is the correct amount). And while some variation is cool, the 5% to 15% nonrecycled content doesn't justify the shelf space they take.
Same with genre. I love cyberpunk, but I don't need tons of unique systems. I just need one fairly robust system and houseruling will take care of the rest.
So with all that being said, has anyone had success reducing their collection? Preferably I'd like to sell rather than donate (to buy more dumb shit). As opposed to board gaming, rpg gamers are ridiculously cheap! Lol Most players have never even bought a single phb, so is there even a secondary market for rpg? What can I expect in terms of cost recovery ? Is it even worth it to sell, or should I just line my coffin with these crisp manuals and have us all set on fire like a nerd viking funeral?
Enquiring minds want to know.
I WANT TO KNOW!
