After a few weeks of discussion we sit down and record this episode on Board Game collections. Brent asserts that a person is a collector if, 1. They identify themselves as a collector and have at least two games, and/or 2. They have more games than they could reasonably play.
Ryan uses a sports analogy to explain how he would select games to buy if Nathan, Brent and his other friends didn’t keep him supplied in games, and Nathan waffles on whether he is A True Collector.
