Moving Day: A Gamer’s Priorities.

It’s hard to visualize exactly what 750 board games look like. How much room do they take up?  How many large “Dell” boxes will they fit in?  How much shelving space do you need to hold them all?  These are all questions we have dealt with when moving our library.

The owners of Game Paradise, my husband and I, are in the process of moving.  And given that we don’t have a storefront yet, all of our games just made the move with us.

The priorities made when moving are always odd.  A close friend of ours said that the first thing they moved was their bar.  In past years, I’ve always moved the kitchen first, so you can be comfortable at the new place.  This time the games moved first.

In our new home, the master bedroom just became our library.  Why?  Because it was the largest room we had.  Yes, the games require that much space.

My husband spent most of the first day setting up shelving.  We have gondolas that are intended for our store when it opens, but were perfect for storing the games on in the meantime.  If you aren’t familiar with “gondolas” think of the store shelving that you see at wal-mart or target.  Those are gondolas.

We have 26 feet of shelving, each with 3-5 shelves on them.  I’m a bad judge of space, so I didn’t think there would be any issues fitting the games on this space.  As we started unboxing the games we found a very different story.  It’s a rather squeaky fit.  As the collection continues to grow, we may very well need more space still.

So, not much is at our new house yet… except for the library.  The kitchen, and bed, still live at the old house, but the games have moved.  You must have your priorities, right?

Average folks have a board game shelf.  Gamers may have a board game closet.  Here at Game Paradise, we have a board game room, and it’s the largest room in the house, and we’re pretty darn proud of that.

    Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering
    which blog platform are you using for this site?
    I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and
    I’m looking at options for another platform.
    I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    Opinion is kinda plain. You could glance at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they
    create article headlines to get people interested.
    You might add a related video or a picture or two to get people excited about everything’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.
