That is a huge pile of board games!


I found this cool story over on the ICV2 site.

From the link:

After two years of negotiations board game dealer and collector Ken Fonarow has agreed to sell his collection of more than 20,000 games to the Barbourville, Kentucky-based Troll and Toad for $150,000. Troll and Toad President Jon Huston told ICv2 that the deal marks the largest price ever paid for a board game collection. Fonarow, who is the auctioneer at the Origins gaming convention and performed a similar function at GenCon for a number of years, had over the years purchased a lot of game collections himself and kept only the best items for his personal collection.

Man, that just makes me drool... I wonder what forgotten gems there are in that collection.

I wonder if he had a copy of Fortress America in there. It was an awesome game...
