BGTG auction and my new appreciation for Martin Wallace
I'm also running a game auction on Boardgamegeek, using their trade geeklist system. I'd rather give my sales commission to BGG than ebay! Right now I've got a collection of oddball stuff, which is a glimpse into my collection of several years back. I used to be more interested in games that others didn't talk as much about, which means there are some unusual items there (e.g. Abilene, Die Glucksritter). Plus wargames. I've got a decent sized collection of wargames and wargame magazines that I'm going to start selling off in future auctions. Some of this stuff just isn't going to be played by me, so it might as well go to someone who can do more with it. Plus, I'd like to free up some space to buy some other things.
Last, I'm going to need to talk about Martin Wallace games in a future podcast. I'm sure you've heard me say that I don't really care for Martin Wallace's designs too much. While that's still true for some of his games (i.e. Age of Steam, Princes of the Renaissance), lately I've had a chance to play & enjoy Byzantium, Tinner's Trail, and Brass. That's the order in which I prefer them, too. The first two, in particular, weren't what I expected from a Martin Wallace game, and that's something I'd like to record a podcast about.
