After, somewhat stupidly, getting rid of all my old board games in my teens, I decided I wouldn’t make that mistake again. I’ve kept every board game I’ve bought since. That’s over 30 years, now. Here’s my current collection, again, not in any particular order and using the correct cover whenever I could find it.
And, of course, the classics: Chess; Draughts; Backgammon; Hex; Scrabble; Dominoes; And innumerable decks of playing cards :)
