I have a shocking confession to make: although I grew up on board and role playing games (D&D, Car Wars, Star Fleet Battles, OGRE, Avalon Hill wargames like D-Day), I hadn't played them in nearly 30 years after getting into guitar and music in middle school and high school...
Then along comes Massdrop's Hobby Shop category, and in the course of barely a year, I have been thoroughly and hopelessly sucked down the rabbit hole, and have become an abject Collector. Similar to my book, videogame and movie habits, I've somehow sunk to the depths of researching, hoarding, organizing, and compiling lists of Haves & Wants, spending far more time curating and stockpiling than even consuming or enjoying.
I have even found myself obsessing over game inserts, organization solutions and sleeving... The abyss grows ever deeper.
Sadly, there is no AA for boardgame collecting.
My only hope is to find some fellow human beings in my locale to help me actually play some of these games, so I can call myself an actual practicing Gamer, and redeem myself from the purgatory of Collecting...
Redemption begins with honesty and accountability, so here I catalog my sins: ===================================================

There Are Pandas, and Then There Are Pandas.
And this isn't either of them! The Pandas we're talking about here, are watches, not bears. And what got me thinking about them (again) was a link posted this morning by @cm.rook who pointed a few of us to the very attractive (and not terribly priced) Yema "Rallygraph" Panda which, in it's most traditional arrangement, looks like the one on the left, but can also be had in the version on the right: The model on the left is a true Panda, while the model on the right is called a reverse Panda. The reason for that distinction is clear--Panda bears, only come in the first arrangement. Now, at this point, everyone should be thinking about the most well-know Panda, The Rolex Panda, which is actually a Daytona, and among Rolex Daytonas, the most famous of which is the Paul Newman Daytona, which was famous first, because it was Paul's, and second because it sold at auction for $17.8 million (US Dollars). The story of that auction is well-known so I'll only...
