I checked with Derek to see if he wanted to continue managing this list and offered to maintain it if he wanted a break. With his blessing I will continue where he left off...

Sometimes, there's a game you want to play, but you don't know who can bring it out, so this is a space for sharing those requests. I'll do my best to keep the list updated when someone responds to a request or if someone posts that a request can be moved from the active list to the fulfilled list.

Post your game requests for ChewsDay Challenge here!

Marketplace / Dedicated Group on Facebook to Buy/Sell/Trade Games
« on: January 10, 2022, 12:44:21 PM »
FYI.

I set up a dedicated group on Facebook to Buy/Sell/Trade board games and board game related items. This is modeled after a couple of other cities doing this very successfully. I wanted to extend the invite to those of you with Facebook accounts to check it out. It is fairly new but rapidly gaining momentum...

Yo Local Gaming Peeps.

Added some items to the sale pile and reduced some prices. Will negotiate pricing if buying multiple items.

Click LINK to find an up to date list of all items I am selling along with prices.

Thanks for looking.

Game Discussion / GIGA-Terraforming Mars
« on: March 11, 2021, 01:26:44 PM »
Hello Fans of Terraforming Mars

This game continues to hit the table often in our house / our group. There are a number of us interested in getting a professionally printed copy of the collection of Fan Created expansion material.

The GIGA-Terraforming Mars project is a pure labour of love on behalf of a number of dedicated fans. It combines some of the best fan created material into one package. The GIGA map and included expansions have got a lot of attention and plays so they are well designed, balanced, and play tested.

Apparently the designer of TM has a copy of the GIGA map printed and on display at their corporate office!!!

At this point, it appears I have 5 of us interested in getting this produced. There are a lot of cards, tiles, and a map to print so it is a bit of work coordinating. That is why is makes sense to get multiple copies done at the same time.

You can read more about this project here:
https://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/2293920/terraforming-mars-giga-expansion-ares-pathfinder-b

If you would like to be a part of this group effort, please let me know. It will not be cheap; but it will be epic!

Hello all.

Pretty quiet in here.

I thought I would let you know that we have established a private website discussion forum area for our board game design efforts. The site allows for concepts and outlines to be posted and fleshed out in greater detail as designs take shape. Currently there 13 designs posted in various stages. Many are open for collaboration, or you could simply add your own. I will say that most of the designs are currently a hobby approach and nothing that is commercially focused.

If you would like to get involved in any capacity, please reach out to me in Private Message here and I will work to get you set up as a member.

Cheers all,
Matt

Okay folks, another big purge. Reality is, as Kathy & I get closer to retirement, we may entertain a move, and we are looking at items a bit differently. A number of games have not been priced yet as I just added a whole bunch to the sell off pile this morning. If you are interested in something that is not priced, shoot me a message.

As always, if you are looking to score a $70 game for $10, you should probably not bother looking. I believe my prices are fair and all of our games are well cared for. In some cases aftermarket bling, bags, and tokens have been added to a number of the games. We will consider discounts on bulk sales. 

LINK TO SALE ITEMS ON BGG

We normally run a number of events and mini-CONS throughout the year and give all proceeds to Carmichael Outreach. We have been averaging $5000-$6000 per year to Carmichael. We feel bad we are not able to host events during Covid and as such our donations to charity have suffered. We feel very strongly that we must look after the marginalized in our community so, to that end, we will donate 50% of all boardgame sales to Carmichael Outreach.


Thank you for looking!


PS. These games are priced for local sale. We do not ship games as we really do not have the boxes and packing materials. In rare cases we may ship games but we will alter the price to reflect the extra time and effort required to do so.

Archive of Marketplace Items / For Sale - Wings of Glory WWII
« on: August 18, 2020, 03:30:36 PM »
I have around 50 Wings of Glory WWII planes along with two boxed sets and some additional expansion material. I have yet to price it out and figure that eBay is likely my best route, but I thought I would post here in case there was interest.
These minis have been appreciating a bit in value so be aware this is not a fire sale.

All planed new in shrink. Game has never been played.

Serious inquiries only please. If there is interest, I can arrange a viewing and we can discuss pricing.

I realized that I am just not a solo gamer and some of the games I was keeping to maybe explore a bit when I got some time are not getting to the table. I think I am narrowing my hobby interests a bit and consequently culling the collection.

The following link is updated with items I am selling / trading...

The final countdown.


Okay, I have sold most of the items on my for sale" pile. I have discounted the remaining items as I need to make room for BixCON.
I have a number of bundles, rare games, or hard to find items left. All in excellent or new condition. Discounts are negotiable if buying multiple items.
Help me make room!!!

A friend of mine is looking for a used copy of XIA (and Expansions) if anyone is thinking about parting with their copy.

Time to get serious on shrinking the collection. First off, here is a BoardGameGeek LINK to all of my items for sale. If any items are of interest, send me a msg or post in this thread. Games belong in good homes where they will get played; not languishing on a shelf looking for attention. To make things interesting, let's gamble. You can pay the listed price, or you can take a chance and roll 1d20:

01-01: You pay the listed price plus 10% 
02-02: You pay the listed price plus 05% 
03-05: You pay the listed price and I donate 25% of the amount to Carmichael Outreach
06-09: You pay the listed price and I donate 50% of the amount to Carmichael Outreach
10-13: You pay the listed price and I donate 75% of the amount to Carmichael Outreach
14-17: You pay the listed price and I donate 100% of the amount to Carmichael Outreach
18-18: You pay the listed price less 5%
19-19: You pay the listed price less 10%
20-20: You pay the listed price less 20%


You have higher odds of saving money and Carmichael Outreach has great odds at benefiting from the sale.
What do you say? Do you feel lucky punk?


Also, regarding the HeroScape items for sale, I have a lot of HeroScape. 12-20 of each of the terrain sets and 6 of each of the figure expansions. At this point I will price items using the Auggie Website. Whatever his price is what I will sell for, except I will charge in Canadian funds instead of USD. Here is a link to his site… http://www.auggiesgamestore.com/catalog/heroscape/699
(The above d20 lottery does not apply to HeroScape items).

Hello SaskGames Community.

I am embarking on another round of purging my collection. This is a significant lot of games and contains some rare items as well as some large bundles.  Note: If you are looking for deep discounts or bargain basement pricing, please look elsewhere like Varage Sale, Used Regina, or Kijiji. I take great care of my games and have spent a lot of time and money building up a respectable collection. I am not about to give them away. That said, my pricing will be fair. I will use Spielboy.com and BoardGameGeek to value the items. Also, I will be using other avenues to move my games along. Math Trades, BGG Marketplace, and other game selling avenues as there is a larger target audience for some of these out of print or hard to find titles. I am making the hobby cost neutral; meaning that I will only acquire games or expansions via trades or proceeds from sales. I look forward to having a much smaller collection.

Thanks for looking.


The following Discount structure applies to bulk purchases. I know this may look odd, but I have sold much of my collection in the past in large bulk purchases so I like to discount more deeply for those sales.
$001 to $100 - Prices as marked.
$101 to $200 - 5% off
$201 to $300 - 10% off
$301 to $500 - 15% off
$501 to $1000 - 20% off
$1001 + (Lets talk)



EDIT:
As items are bought and paid for, I will mark the item as

on each individual listing.
