ar­chiv­ist ag­o­nies

I use Col­lec­torz to in­ven­tory my games, but the games are priced by the Amer­i­can mar­ket. Is there a UK equiv­a­lent?

No Face gamer via Twit­ter

We looked at a va­ri­ety of apps and web­sites, but couldn’t find any that of­fer value track­ing based on the uk mar­ket. App de­vel­op­ers out there: how about in­clud­ing this op­tion?

clean­ing cases

I’d be in­ter­ested in the best way to clean the cases them­selves. I col­lect Master Sys­tem games and am al­ways wor­ried about the things I’m us­ing in case they dam­age the plas­tic.

Mike Hard­ing via Face­book

For plas­tic cases like those, you shouldn’t have a prob­lem with plain wash­ing up liq­uid and wa­ter – the im­por­tant thing to re­mem­ber is to get a pa­per towel un­der the flex­i­ble sleeve (where the printed in­sert would go) while it’s dry­ing, other­wise the wa­ter is trapped and takes for­ever to dry. if you just need to re­move stick­ers and la­bels, prod­ucts like AF La­bel­c­lene are ef­fec­tive.

no love lost

How about, ‘How to stop your wife moan­ing at the size of your games col­lec­tion?’ scott Hen­der­son via Face­book

Find out why your wife is un­happy and try to reach a com­pro­mise – for ex­am­ple, if space in the house is the prob­lem, you could con­sider build­ing a shed as an ex­ter­nal games room. Re­mem­ber, any re­la­tion­ship must be built on a foun­da­tion of solid com­mu­ni­ca­tion. Al­ter­na­tively, Nick finds that be­ing sin­gle is an ef­fec­tive way of en­sur­ing that he never has to worry about a spouse’s con­cerns, but you may feel this is per­haps rather too dras­tic.
