The Massive Boon
- Ryan Werner(Rwerner)United States
So, here's what happened. I am at college and I was doing some spelunking of sorts... to be specific, I was investigating an access shaft in the basement of a dormitory in my college to get some measurements for a replacement air conditioning unit for our campus television studio. I found a ladder in the wall at the end of the shaft and out of curiosity I climbed in to discover a dark, incredibly dusty area in which I discovered a geek jackpot. I found some an old sofa, some tables and chairs, some cabinets, an entertainment center with a TV, and the true motherload: piles of comics and old games, mostly roleplaying and wargames from the look of it from the 1960s to the 1980s based on the titles I recognized and the box artwork styles. There are some old versions of classics like Risk and Stratego but also out of print titles like Supremacy. The boxes are old and damaged but it looks like the contents are all there. I am so excited to add some of these to my collection. It makes the old man in this young man's body happy.
I went and got a few pics, so it did happen. I haven't gotten the games out of there yet because climbing down that ladder is a bit treacherous even with only a flashlight.
Anyway, here you go. This is most of what I found in there. Enjoy.
What follows is a list of the boardgaming titles uncovered in a secluded and long-forgotten area within the basement of college dormitory.
Contents of the hidden cache included many classic games, primarily wargames and science fiction games as well as a few role-playing games. The role-playing games have been omitted for BGG.
Although the game boxes have suffered from years of abandonment, the contents of the games seem to be completely intact for the most part. There were actually duplicates of a few of the games, particularly among the Star Fleet Battles titles.
