How many rulebooks are too many..
I have come to the inesapable conclusion I have too many rule books...
It starts innocently enough, different genres, different scales, different levels of detail etc etc
(Excluding fixed settings like zombicide, x-wing, wings of glory, and boardgames)
- Dystopian wars - maybe replaced by the new fleet wars when released. V2 seems to have got a mixed response
- Malifaux v2 - need to play more, not played since got my own copy!
- 40k 6th/7th - although this is slipping way out this last year or so along with any interest I had although still like the setting and novels.
- Songs of blades and heroes (mdrg, flying lead etc) - still a favourite and current kickstarter for add on to MDRG post apoc setting with simian's!
- Wasteman - just arrived but looks fun
- This is not a test - backing current kickstarter
- In her Majesties Name - still a favourite
- Blood eagle - based on IHMN new release that I'm tempted to pick up
- Saga - had some great fun but seems to be out of favour with many near me
- Black powder/hail Caesar/pike an shot - still good fun but mostly used for adapted steampunk/Vic sci fi
- Battletech alpha strike - I do like this
- Battletech total warfare - too complicated and detailed for me prefer AS above.
- En guarde - newly received but yet to play
- Bolt action - enjoy and played couple games
- Gates of Antares - enjoy and played a couple games
- Firestorm armada - could play more
- Deadzone - just got PDF of v2 looks fun but not played yet
- Dreadball - need to play much more
- Warzone (original) - unlikely to ever play
- Rules with no name - need to play more
- smile emoticon
- Force on force - never played
- Tomorrow's war - had few good games but not in awhile
- 1949 Secrets of third Reich - same as above
- Across the dead earth - fun game
- Judge dredd - same
- Black ops - not played yet
- Seven seas - not convinced on these rules
- Kings of war - great fun
- A world a flame - played once
- Lion rampant - great game
- Dragon rampant - same
- The great war - good
- Warhammer fantasy - unlikely to play again
- Mordheim - but mean to play this more, seems to be enjoying a local revival
- Necromunda - same
- Epic - not played in time
- Battlefleet Gothic - same
- Warmaster - same
- Bloodbowl - same
- Inquisitor - meaning to play again at 28mm
- Rogue star - new sci fi by author of songs of blades and heroes on order
- Harder than steel - same
- Konflict 47 - on order based on bolt action system
- Frostgrave - current favourite with lots of players
- Gaslands - car game in development for Osprey
- Route 666 - awaiting my kickstarter
- 7tv v2 - forgot I had a PDF of this, not played but looks fun, some nice miniatures
- Warpath - waiting to see where mantic take this but not sure I need another mass sci fi rule set..
- Outrider - was the other car post apoc rules I couldn't recall, have a PNP version as postage from US was too high. Good fun Game
- Axles and alloys - another PDF set not played yet
- Galleys and galleons - I know should be under SOBH above but worth calling out IMHO.
- Macrocosm - I have draft PDF
- Shattered crown - from makers of across the dead earth, still alpha PDF so may change
- Also a space rules set Fleet wars, by a club member which I have helped play test a few times
Sure there are some others I have forgotten to include, will add if I recall them.
Left out all RPG games from the list as I buy them for interest knowing I'm unlikely to ever game with them
That's 55 different rule systems! And that's with some groupings so probably in excess of 60 with ease.. Maybe 70+ realised I didn't count all the old DBM DBR books I have etc
Also not counting source or army/theatre/expansion books - I mean bolt action is already at about 6-7 books that I own..
Anyone beat my list and anyone cracked the hoarding bug?
I'm bad at books anyway having amassed around 600 so hoarding rulebooks kind of feels normal but maybe I should off load those least likely to ever be used?
