a pursuit of fruitless endeavors and endless refinements


Ah, the game collection.  Some treat it as the ultimate in hobby consumption, collecting as many games as possible, consuming only to consume.  Others treat it as a museum, collecting the oddities and rarities that define the fringes of the hobby (with the regular pedestrian games to help round out the collections actual use).  I treat my collection as a bonsai.  It is constantly and meticulously pruned and trimmed for maximum efficiency.  I want to keep my collection at a manageable level so any time I start having trouble finding space on my game shelf, I start looking at the next game to go on the chopping block.

    Hello, would you be interested in making a few of the Jefferson’s Ocean Ocearch ships to sell?

    • Christian

      Hi John, it depends. Are you just wanting the ship or the whole ship/bottle? I won’t have time to make any ships for a while but can likely put something together. The issue with the bottle is my ships eventually sank (I made three). Given a month or so, they sank to the bottom and became a sunken wreck :). I gave up tinkering with it but could likely still make some ships.

    Love the collection. Do you still have Santorini? I am actually looking for the GenCon set of promo Gods with Nyx and Hydra, would you be willing to sell if you still have it?

    • Christian

      Thank you for the inquiry! I’m not ready to part with those at this time but thanks for reaching out.

  3. MDasiah

    Thank you for the response. If you ever plan on it, please think of me! Or even if know anyone else who would be willing. Thanks a bunch 🙂
