—Ask The Bellhop—

Today we’ve got a couple of questions dealing with deciding which games to remove from your game collection.

First, a question from Cory Chritensen who asked:
“If you had to remove a game from your collection, which would it be?”

And then Juho Rutila wrote to ask:
“The question: Filling up the first closet is something that every hardcore gamer and collector faces at some point. Then starts the negotiation with the better other about getting more room, or selling some of the games away before new purchases.

What tips would Tabletop Bellhop give for selling some items from that precious collection? When to let go of a game? Is it just the number of plays or do other factors affect the decision?”
