Anywhere to sell boardgames besides Ebay?

Post by rnrusa » Sun Apr 01, 2012 2:39 pm

I have a 40th Anniv. ltd ed game of Risk. The shrink wrap is gone but otherwise everything else is still new and sealed including the cert of authenticity.

I've seen these selling on ebay in this condition for between 100 and $150 but I am loathe to pay the 9% fee.

I remember when Ebay was 3% +1% over a certain high dollar value. Guess I'm getting old.

Well, there's BARTERTOWN, of course. : )
We've got a forum for Board Games.
Also, you can look at boardgamegeek.com. I don't know if they allow SALES, but they do have trading.

Yahoo answers had an answer to a similar question about selling used board games. Several suggestions were offered.

Ask your local game store if they are interested in either letting you put it up for sale on consignment for you [usually they get about a 10-20% commission on the sale...OR if they would be interested in buying/trading it from you themselves. A lot of game stores have a games library that they let people come & play at the store, to encourage people to try out a game before they buy it. Both are good options.

I have also had luck selling/trading on boargamegeek, and since what you are selling has some collector value, you may have some luck doing it that way.
