It's one thing to collect a whole series of games you like, and
something else entirely to collect most or all of the output of a publisher.

Certainly, there are insane folk who go for every GDW, SPI, or AH game, but though
my collections of these companies are large, they are nowhere near complete.

Here are some companies that are almost insta-buys for me:

Victory Games (wargames only - not interested in the Dr. Ruth Game of Good Sex)

Azure Wish Edition - this is the only real complete collection I've got. Missing one two title, but I'd pick it up
if I see it for a good price.

Yaquinto Games - dunno how this happened, but I've been scooping their stuff up for a while.
Even to the point of buying a copy of Wings although I had the Excalibur reprint.

I'm getting dangerously close to owning just about everything from GMT published after 2000.  Not really a goal or anything, it's just happened that way.  Victory Games is one I'd love to own all their historical stuff.  I think I own about half of those right now, but again ... to me it's more game driven than publisher driven.

Yeah. I was just interested when I thought about all the Yaquinto stuff I have.

If someone posted "Yaquinto Game Lot" I'd be more interested in that than say someone saying "WEG Game Lot" for a variety of reasons.  So I think setting for the potential purchase matters as well.

Wow. Including the kinda hard-to-find early TCS titles?

Sounds like a rich man's game to me. I have at times started to buy everything in a particular series as they are published but then realise that the output rate exceeds my game budget.  Undecided

Oh ****. That's two titles I'm missing.

Probably won't do that one.

Not even close!

Sure, I have complete game series, but not all the games from one publisher. Not even the small ones off the top of my head.

Egads!

Hmmmm....aside from my complete GMT collection I'm drawing a blank. Oh wait! I almost forgot about my complete SPI collection that's back behind the shed.

Impressive. What about different editions?

Did you start early on? It took me a few years before I was aware of the company at all.

I don't have earlier editions of some of the games as I was a bit of a late starter when getting into some of the series. The Gamers' stuff is the one instance where I actually went out and hunted for some of the older games just so that I could complete the collection. I can't really tell you why I was driven to do such a thing but my intention is to eventually play them all...
