Well, after the arrival of the NES displaced my Sega games from the upper shelf of the TV cabinet I had to find a suitable new home for them. Stacking them beside the cabinet was not an ideal solution and with very little space for shelves in my man-corner of the kitchen the only alternative was to put them in one of the spare cupboards.
Trouble was – there weren’t any.
So after much negotiation with the wife/boss/High-Empress-of-the-Universe I cleared the stuff out of one of the utensil cupboards on the condition I found a new home for the cables and boxes which meant rearranging the space under the stairs to accommodate them. I then proceeded to clean the cupboard out before putting in the new contents.
Once I was done I was a little taken aback at how small my collection looks. Of course, the fact that a lot of them are cartridges without their boxes goes some way to explaining it but still I was expecting it to look larger somehow. Nevertheless, it continues to grow steadily. At least it looks a lot cleaner now and the risk of the cat climbing over them or my daughter knocking them over is gone.
