Marketplace / FOR SALE: Board Games (Autumn / Winter 2020 Edition)
« on: September 07, 2020, 01:31:02 PM »


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.

Marketplace / 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.

Marketplace / Added a bunch more games to the sale pile.
« on: May 25, 2020, 11:05:57 AM »


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.

Hello:
Is there a schedule of events or will this be all open gaming?

I tend to combine most of my games into the base game box. I have always saved the various game boxes...

...now is the time to let them go. The boxes are in great shape. Some people may want a nicer version of a game box for something they own or perhaps use the boxes for other game related materials or games. I do not have an inventory, just a lot of boxes.

Take 1 or take them all. Free to a good home, although we accept any donations you would like to make - Money to go to Carmichael Outreach.

I have a very large collection of WWII Terrain that I have decided needs a new home. I am in the processing of inventorying what I have. The following pictures show a fraction of what I own.



















I am selling:
...6' x 4' folding battleboard
...many tress of different types
...many detailed buildings. Most of them have removable roofs for troop placement inside building
...bridges
...lots of J&R miniatures river pieces, (narrow and wide)
...lots of J&R miniatures road pieces, (narrow and wide)
...lots of J&R miniatures trench pieces.
...miscellaneous terrain pieces for town settings.
...bridges
...pillboxes
...hills
...fences
...fields
...bunkers
...anti tank traps


I will only sell the terrain together as a bundle. Please PM me to set up a viewing / discuss pricing. Serious inquiries only.

Copied from HeroScapers website:

“Sometime in 2018 I will likely be selling most, if not all of my HeroScape collection. This is a very large collection with a number of custom items, storage and add-ons. I am not ready to sell anything yet. I have lots of work to inventory and work out pricing details. Suffice to say, when the time comes, I will post here so the community has an opportunity to acquire some of the items. Also worth noting is that I will greatly favour large bundled transactions over piece-mealing everything out.

HeroScape has brought me an incredible amount of joy; it is time to start reducing my material footprint in anticipation of a move / lifestyle change in the next few years.

'Scape on folks,
Matt "Bixby" Robertson”

Hello Folks:

I am putting together an order for these uber awesome Card game carrying cases. I thought I would offer the chance to piggy back on my order to cut down on shipping costs.

Let me know if you want in...
