Welcome The Gamehole!  And thanks for announcing your presence.  The more, the merrier.

A nearly complete collection?  Woah!  Feel free on the forums to post pictures of your stash as others have done or just photos of some of your rarer and/or more unusual items.  We like pictures!   :)

Welcome Alex!   A lot of us started using this site before we became official members!

As for "complete", you'll find that many of us have different versions of what complete is... I myself am down to needing only 15 titles to "complete" my collection, but after looking at Stratochamp's binder at GenCon last year, I've just barely started!  I didn't know TSR made half that stuff!  ;-)

Hey folks,
New to the forum, old to gaming.
I'm 43 from Norwalk, CT and used to own a game store, used to work in radio and currently work in a library. I collect various RPG's, board games and more. I'm always looking for something new or old to fill a hole in my gaming. I hit Gen Con every year and just started attending Gary Con.

Favorite items of note I may or may not own: Dark Tower board game, Holmes D and D, Circus Maximus, Deadlands classic, original art.

Welcome Icetower!

I'm but a 90 minute drive from your general location I believe (I'm in the NW hills of CT).

What was your game store called?

As far as original art goes, my most significant piece is the DCC RPG Wizard Cover by Doug Kovacs. I also have some 2nd Edition D and D pieces that were used in Dark Sun and Ravenloft books, nothing majorly significant.

My game store was called Haunted Chapel Comics and Games in Norwalk, CT.

Nice to meet y'all!

Figured I'd intro myself as well since i've been a member for a few years but not active one.

I'm Rick, 43, living in the southern US, and yeah we wear shoes, most of the time.

I'm an avid collector of anything RPG from the 70s/80s. Of course an avid TSR fan, and anything 'small press'

Also an avid comic book collector since age 8.

At this point in my collecting life I find myself seeking all those TSR items I never really knew was out there... beach towels, candy boxes, coloring books, story books, etc.

I would kill for the MPC Action Scene Kits, Wood Burning Set, heck anything from the 70s/80s that was TSR licensed

hello to all and your site is invaluable when it comes to TSR knowledge. thanks

Glad you are back. :)

And I hope you get that creative spark going. Unfortunately, I missed out on some of your earlier stuff. :/

Hi ... Just got back from GenCon where I met a few members at the Acaeum dinner. I am a friend of Jim K here on the forum. It was great to hear stories of the things others have collected, thanks.

Been playing since the early 80's still have most of what I bought back then. I'd like to find some of those things I was looking to buy back then, which is how I found this site in the first place. Then Jim K told me this is the place to go for D&D collecting.
