Here's mine from just after UKGE 2017. Formula D has gone and I've since added a copy of Istanbul, and I've recently been given the Recon expansion for Arctic Scavengers too.

 

There's about four expansions in the Dominion box and everything but Babel in the 7 Wonders box.

My little collection. That's a Crokinole board in it's carboard box peaking out the side of the shelving. The black boxes at the bottom all contain games stuff too. Paints in one, X-Wing ships, Imperial Assault minis and assorted pieces, dice tray and table cloth in the other. My lounge is basically a games room. Board games and dining table at one end and TV and xbox at the other :)

You need to do what I did and buy another one :) Lots of games still in shrink wrap there!

Some lovely games there @SimonC what do you think of Murano? 

I like it. But then I am fairly ruthless with my collection and any game I can't see myself playing again quickly gets sold on. It's a nice midweight euro. Plenty of interaction as you try and take the actions around the edge of the board and fight over tile space in the centre. Defintiely worth a play. You've reminded me that I should really get it to the table again soon!

Yeah, I played it not so long ago, really liked how the ships were action spaces that you move round the outside of the board. Some spatial element with the tile laying and having the right building join up to the right buyer. 

 

I liked it but it definitely deserves a couple of goes, I was concentrating so hard on making my stuff work that I neglected a lot of end game scoring cards. Guy who won got a couple of cards which gave him points for particular colour glass and he had some conversion cards to those colours. He romped it :)

Very nice. I just started the process of building a garden studio, so I'll have my own space soon, too. In the meantime, most of my hobby stuff is stored in these ikea cupboards int he home office:

@Nathan WindThat is class, looks very cosy. Would love a wee room like that. Our spare rooms are "The Study", which is where my stuff goes that isn't allowed in other rooms, and "The PlayRoom" (the toy dumping ground / clothes drying).

Lucky folk with spare room(s).  If I had one I would have absolutely no self control, rather than extremely little self control.  I've limited my board games to 6 John Lewis low units dotted around the flat, items for disposal being relegated to the naughty chair in the bottom of the wardrobe (where shoes and bags usually live).

I can now say "quite a lot less" since I managed to unload 5 boxes of games at the UK Expo but I still won't tell her how many I have. I'll tell you lot though, it's now down to a more reasonable 157 which is probably just about right.

Looking back at this thread I found this old post of mine. It's obvious I really didn't know what I'd got into at that point, "157", "just about right"........... oh,dear, I was so naive back then. My BGG stats show the collection has gone over 500 now and that's with selling a fair number of games over lockdown.
