I’m am Alex and this is Talking Shelf Space. There are already plenty of YouTube channels, podcasts and board gaming sites out there. With this project I want to try to escape the cult of the new, leave fear-of-missing-out behind and and rather take a long term perspective: which are the games we keep in our collection and which aren’t? What are the stories of the people that brought them alive and the stories of those that played them.

This is not about showing you the latest thing on Kickstarter or doing payed reviews. Others do a brillant job of that already. It is about discovering new classics that you will be playing for years to come and show you new sides of those that you already own. New episodes will be published each … let’s just say whenever I feel like it. I’m thinking more high quality product, less frequent.

So join me on this journey, we’ll see how it goes. Hope you have fun!
