If you’ve been collecting for any length of time, then you’ve probably accumulated a lot of cool stuff.  Stuff you love.  Stuff you treasure.  Stuff you never touch.  You know how it is: you acquire something, you’re excited about it at first, but eventually you put the item away and promptly forget about it.  In other words, what once was “found” has now become “lost” (get it?). ”Found & Lost” is all about delving into your collection, dusting off your favorites, finally firing up those untried games you’ve had for years, admiring the gaming memorabilia you’ve acquired, remembering why you wanted all this stuff in the first place.
