How to REALLY KonMari Board Games

Sharing is caring!

Our family uses the KonMari Method to go through our board game collection.

The kids seem shocked when I tell them we have too many games and must get rid of some.

After explaining to them what Marie Kondo recommends doing when decluttering, I ask the kids to help decide which board games spark joy and which ones do not.

We disagree on only a few games, but that's OK because I have the best, most realistic solution to the problem.

We are a family of gamers. Mom (Darcy/Syrana) and Dad (Brian/Sideshow) have been gaming for as long as they can remember back when you only had a joystick to use and saved your games to cassette tapes.

They've been gaming together since they met in 2002. Sometime after 2006, they both started playing World of Warcraft and did that for many years. They started this blog, originally called Sideshow & Syrana which has now transitioned to the new Stay-At-Home Gamers site, while keeping all of the original content.

Starting in 2010, two more gamers came along (now known as Princess Boo and Mr. X) and they are now old enough where they both enjoy playing games and watching others play games. They are both excited to have others to watch them play their favorite games. Come along with us and let's enjoy these games together!
