Board gaming expenditure 2021

Recommended Posts

Picked up the last two standalone Arkham Horror LCG scenarios from eBay tonight which means I’ve got all of them( or have them on the way ), all that is apart from Barkham Horror which is ludicrously expensive & apparently will never be reprinted. 

Shame I don’t speak German, as there’s one I could buy for £16. :(


AH LCG Scenarios ~£145

AH LCG Core £30

AH LCG Complete Dunwich Expansion £87


Total £262


All funded by selling loads of stuff from my loft, so nowhere near as bad as it looks.

Add 1 Doom for starting to realise how expensive the Arkham rabbit hole goes. :lol:


Thankfully I joined this thread long after starting collecting AH, so I try not to think about how much I've spent on everything that's been release to date.  And how much I'll keep spending, as I love the game to bits.

It’s not so bad now, I figure, as I can spread out the remaining expansion cycles, plus I understand they do reprint those so I don’t need to panic buy anything ( forgotten age box is basically out of stock everywhere so I assume that must be on the way soon-ish ).

And I guess that’s birthday & Christmas covered for the foreseeable too!! :lol:

The real rabbit hole is that this could be the start of a ‘board gaming phase’ in general, as I’ve also got Too Many Bones on the way, plus I’ve backed the Marvel United Kickstarter so things could get real expensive, real quick. :ph34r:

Picked up a Cloudspire bundle from eBay for £245 delivered after watching the start of a solo play through on YouTube to get a good idea of how it plays. 

Comes with main game, plus the upgrade pack, all expansions, first set of miniatures & the scenario / lore books. The main game has been played a couple of times but all the stuff from the second campaign is still sealed. 

As long as it’s all in mint condition, it’s a pretty good price as it would be about 320 to buy it all new from Chip Theory’s website.

Well this has been an expensive month, granted its largely been down to Marvel United X-Men and the things I've been wanting for a while coming back in stock (AFfO Norwegians, New York Zoo and Spirit Island Jagged Earth).


I'm really going to try take a break for a while, feel quite content at the moment and nothing I'm desperate to pick up, only thing on my list that's constantly been out of stock forever is Potion Explosion so I guess if that came back in stock I'd pick that up. Not terribly much on KS I fancy either other than Isle of Cats expansions. I've got a few decisions to make on games I've backed at a dollar (Chai tea for two, My Fathers Work, Eternal Palace and ICE off the top of my head) and a couple pledge managers due, Robinson Crusoe and Canvas Reflections.


I've not included my hotel costs for UKGE but suppose it is a board game expense so wasn't sure if I should or not.

Pictures of the table please. A dedicated games table is on our list but it'll be a while before we're in a position to get it. 

Another 4-5 months before it’s delivered, but absolutely will post some.
