As a result I evaluated my game collection and decided to sell off about 1/3 of my collection. I loved them all, but I only have time to play so much. I figured it was best to find some of them a new home.
The ones that did not make the cut included:
Complete Avalanche Press Great War at Sea Collection- For the same reasons as above I just could not justify keeping these sitting on the shelf when they were not being played.
Tide of Iron. A great Game system, but since I also own Memoir 44 and Axis and Allies Minis it was redundant and just did not get played that often. In fact the Normandy expansion was still not punched.
I also sold off some of my extra 10mm Gordon & Hague ACW collection, extra Wings of War planes and a balloon set as well as some older Axis And Allies titles and Avalon Hill Boxed games.
All in all I would say I did pretty well. I did not expect to get current retail prices, but several of the titles were very collectible especially some of the AP games. In total I netted over $1000 which more than paid off my Sails of Glory order and padded the hobby account for future purchases. ;)

My collection now centers around historical minis such as Wings of Glory, Memoir 44, Axis and Allies Minis (Naval and Land) and the new X-wing game. I have also retained several classic Avalon Hill titles along with other classic board games you can see pictured.
So yes for me there is such a thing as too much, the trick was finally realizing it. We will see what the collection looks like a year from now.
Until Next time......Happy Gaming!
