Since I vowed to stop buying boardgames, and yet there are still new and interesting games coming out, I have come to a revised strategy going forward...
The general process is as follows:
1) I can only buy a boardgame after I sell one from my collection. (From the law of conservation of energy (games) - I. Newton)
2) The cost of the new game may not exceed the one that I am selling. (From the investment golden rule - W. Buffett)
3) If selling one that is not enough to cover the cost of a new one then:
3a) Delay the purchase of the boardgame until condition 1 and 2 meet in the future. (From implement delay gratification - B. Tracy)
3b) Sell two from your collection to cover for the extra cost. Pocket the residual profit. (From the concept of One Child Policy population reduction economic boost - China)
4) Last option is to swap games with boardgamers in your community. (From the wisdom that community is stronger together - D. Carnegie)
So sticking to the above rule, today I had sold Catan and Harry Potter games in exchange for Fog of Love.
This way I can keep a good collection of games I like to play and sell those I don't play as often. , Are there any other good strategies that you had implemented for your hobbies? Please share
