    CQ 199 - We're Making Less-Bad Collecting Lists

    Ever the CQ topic, we're talking about organizing game list data, how hard it is to do, defining criteria, and letting your database be flexible with your changing opinions. Is it me, or is just the concept of a simple defined list of things to collect something uniquely nuanced and difficult to our hobby?

    CQ 198 - 10 NES Games To Start Your Collection With

    We're talking about the ten NES games each of us would buy if we were starting over from zero and how much we would budget for them. No price limits, no compromises. We got a big insurance payout and we're each getting what we think are the best version of the best things. Only one of us chose a Battle Kid game. Guess which one!

Funny banter mixed with good info for the novice collector/ hobbyist.

I came for Retro Gem Miner, I stayed for actually learning something.

My favorite gaming podcast. That’s it, hands down. Listen to it. Good range at being able to communicate to a niche group of collectors, while being accessible to people trying to learn. All 3 hosts are knowledgeable, and just solid people. Needs more R Zone Content though.

It’s A’ight!

Collectors Quest is an essential podcast to anyone who takes the game collecting hobby seriously.

This show is wonderfully presented, well researched, entertaining, engaging, and perfect for a long drive.

What I love most about CQ is that the hosts, Johnny, Tyler, and (optional) Stephan have very equal screen time, with no one clearly being the dominating presence.

I give this show a 9.8 / A++
