My office is now home to my collection.
My Catan collection has been growing steadily over the past 12 months and rather than just keep it in storage I was keen to have it on display.
If I set it up at home there was not enough space to show it all and also I would rarely get to see it. So instead I have bought some new display shelving and set up my collection in my office. This way I get to look at it all day and I can bore my clients senseless telling them about my favourite game. Who knows I may even find some new people to play against.
I also keep copies of my favourite playsets at home so I can still play in the evenings.
When I first set up I only bought four shelving units as I thought that would be enough. It was not. So I have now added a fifth unit and already run out of space.
Update: Nov 2019 - I have bought 4 more shelving units ready for December 2019 when I will be doubling the size of my collection. I have been very fortunate to acquire a large European collection of over 500 items. It features a large Dutch collection, a large number of German sets, as well as unplayed base sets from over 25 other countries. It will take a few months to bring the site up to date with this collection and my other recent purchases.
These are the first five shelves, and I plan to add more in the future. To view any shelf, click on the image to see a larger version.
