I love board games, but don’t have the time or space

Gears of War Board Game

Along with video games, novels and animated movies, I love board games. I'm not talking about Monopoly or Snakes & Ladders; I'm talking about what classifies as 'geek crack.' The love. The passion.

Shelved games: Why I gave up on Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch

Today, I decided to cross Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch from my backlog list. I haven't finished it and I don't intend on ever doing so. Now, before the pitchforks and "try it again" comments come out, I should lay out my reasons as to why I'm permanently shelving the game.
