I collect RPG books but I would not, in the way I understand the word, call myself a ‘collector’. I say that because when I use that word, I picture someone searching for those last couple of titles to finish off their full set of 2nd edition Dungeons & Dragons or grabbing those last couple […]
Back in the early days (1970s – 1980s), I was a “collector” as I owned many, most if not quite all, of the RPGs available. Due to numerous moves over the years, I lost more than I have kept. Sites like EBay and DriveThru RPG (DTRPG) have let me collect many of those I lost and gain a lot more. On DTRPG, I have over 20,000+ RPG related PDF items; the vast majority of them were free as they offer around 9,000 free on a regular basis. That’s not including the regular short-term free items that normally cost, but are put up for a few days, a week, or a month for free.
I do have a fair sized collection of RPG books and boardgames, but it’s a far cry from my heyday where I had a much larger collection of RPG books and boardgames.
