The Joy of Unpacking: Episode 1

By February 17, 2017Boardgames, Videos

We all want things we can’t have. Being a decent human being is accepting that.

Join me, if you will, on a voyage of unpacking – and not just unpacking, but rediscovery – as we rip aside bubble wrap and packing paper to reveal the many and varied gaming purchases of the past!

A last, at last! After almost five years, my game collection parts old (stored in Sydney) and new (bought here in New Zealand) have come together in one location – and it’s time for a rip-roaring unpacking party!

As soon as I started tearing off the copious reams of bubble wrap and packing paper I realised I had to share the experience with my dear fellow EOG members. So here’s part one of a series, as I make all kinds of exciting discoveries, reminisce about games old and new, and re-aquaint myself with old gaming friends.

    This video made me very nostalgic. A lot of games from my youth. You realet hade an Amazonfloden collection.
    Battlefleet gothic was a game I adored from a distant. Never had money to buy it, but read about it in WD.

    Mutant chronicles was made by a swedish gamecompany (I’m from sweden) I only now recently was made aware how well liked it was internationally. Nice miniatures game.

    I very much enjoy your videos, checking for updates on your site daily. Keep up the good work.

    Happy unboxing (and unpacking and repainting your new house).

    Best wishes.

  • Thanks everyone! Glad you enjoyed the video. More to come.

    So I have watched this series of videos and I’ve got to say it’s refreshing to see someone who thinks the way I do in regards to measuring and using what you have as a template for cutting and measuing. I did have a question and it seemed that this would be the best video to ask on. What size cutting mat are you using? I ask because I was going to buy one and the difference in price is pretty drastic between sizes and the one you have seem to be perfect. Thanks!

What do you think?
