Well.... since I'm pretty much responsible for this thread let me put this out there and sorry for the long post:

I FRIGGING LOVE IKEA O0 :P

Love, love, love your passionate defence of IKEA. Merit from me too! :)

As I've said, my biggest problem with IKEA is that I just don't like the style of the furniture. But that's just a personal viewpoint - IKEA seems wildly successful so it looks like a lot of people think it's great.

And I'm noticing more and more lately that there are a lot of things apart from IKEA that other people like a lot that I don't like at all. But to avoid opening a can of worms and a lot more spin-off threads, I won't list the others here.

In any case, my overall point is that I'm the weirdo in the whole IKEA discussion.

If there's good opportunity to blame jungleboy for something though, I'm completely behind it. O:-)


Well played. Not sure about the timing, though, just before the weekly online game...

There are plans for the first Sussex Ikea to open in Lancing, Between Brighton and Worthing.  This thread has intrigued me.  I may visit.

BGG forum topic someone (not me) started: What shelves are you using? No Ikea please.

Spoiler from the thread: I'm open to hear about anything EXCEPT Ikea.

I have a 5 x 5 Kallax (from IKEA) next to a 1 x 4 Kallax (also from IKEA) providing 29 cubes of storage. All provided by IKEA.

Also: stop ruining Christmas! >:(
