Thanks Falcon! It has been an amazing year for me. Although I haven’t shared as much of the journey on the forum as I’d have liked due to the whole Photobucket issues it was only in recent months I was informed of a useful substitute. Nevertheless when I look through my posts on my N64 Instagram which coincidentally I set up January 2017, I do think wow, that is some serious hoarding / collecting right there.

However as we all know this isn’t just about hoarding N64 games or loot. To that end, I am going to return the favour and vote for The White Falcon who has not only added many games across various platforms to his collection, but also shared it with us along the way on the appropriate topic.

:yeah:

I'm going to cast my word for Milage for the same reason. I really love his approach, too. He set parameters, took his time with individual purchases (for the most part) as if to relish each acquisition, and them proudly displays them in a case that looks as though it was tailor made for him. Not the biggest or priciest collection in the world, but elegant and obviously loved by its owner.

Thanks guys! :yeah:

I still think there are some more hoarders out there but this type of collecting / hoarding isn’t as easy as you think which I guess you are alluding to. Like there are quite a few games in the UK PAL library that are just so hard to find CIB especially nice condition. Also, the amount of collectors I’ve noticed keeps increasing and you’re in competition with so many for the rare titles or even common ones in nice shape. It’s a relief to be able to sit back and watch what happens. Thanks for the votes, appreciate your kind words also.

@Mymee - Yeah alphabetical all the way it’s the only way to know where a game is amongst so many! Thanks again for the Turok 2 t-shirt it’s a very cool quirky piece to have and I have so much nostalgia for that game (still own my original) so it’s great to have a t-shirt related to that of all the ones that could have been out there.

I've been hoarding pretty strong myself, but not like Milage. It's quite impressive and takes some serious work considering the N64 PAL scene.

Honorable mention goes to MymeeN64. She has a good eye for all things :n64:

Congrats to Milage on his great achievement. However, the props this year have to go Intendall and his amazing score of prototype n64 consoles and controllers!
