This was supposed to go up at midnight this morning. Sorry for the delay.
Today is a quick post. Sorry for that, I have something a bit more serious and up to the normal flair for tomorrow but it's been a long weekend so I don't really have the energy to divulge to that post right now.
Anyhow, over the weekend myself and a housemate found probably about $1000 worth of gaming books, or about 20 books (figure average price of about $50 per book.) Most of the books were for Exalted but there was also some Old World of Darkness, Shadowrun 4th edition, Ars Magica, and several other systems represented.
All in all it was a good haul but neither me nor my housemate can really fathom just dumping that many gaming books. Gaming books don't really "go off" and it's not like the release of new games means the old games are unplayable. Furthermore, most gamers are fond of their books. It is possible they are getting out of the habit, or it is an old roommate's stuff that was left behind. Still, it is strange.
It also has me curious. Have you tossed any RPG books over the years? If so how and why? Is there a limit to how many books you'll keep? A limit to how many games you'll allow yourself to have on hand?
Sound off in the comments and let us know.
