Gaming Metabolism

I have thought about writing this post for a while now, but I didn’t really know how I could make it relatable for others. I decided “you know what it’s relatable for me” that’s enough right?

Over the past several years, I have like I’m sure many other board gamers have thrown countless amounts of money at the cardboard sirens. So much so that at the point of writing this I have over 50 unplayed games.

My insatiable appetite for games was unstoppable consuming game after game like some board game smack ‘ed.
I was rapidly running out of space and asking Laura “Do the boys REALLY need a room each?” Apparently yes and I’m ridiculous.

Flip to now – 2017 and my gaming metabolism has slowed right down no longer am I burning through game after game or acquiring them quicker than it takes Trump to make himself look like an asshat.

What has happened? Has my love affair with board gaming deserted me, left me in bed with nothing but a few cardboard coins left on the bedside table?

I feel so cheap…

Or maybe my metabolism hasn’t stopped maybe it’s leveling out because the gaming industry is leveling out and I just need to adjust to a less gamerific diet.

Money isn’t an issue space isn’t, I don’t need a bedroom. So it must be that fewer games are being released or at least fewer good games are being released.

Is this a clear indicator that the board game industry is leveling out or has it hit a plateau?

I would love to hear peoples thoughts on this, as ever leave a comment below or hit me up in the usual social media places.
