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 SaskGames community.

I am embarking on another round of purging my collection. I have got my collection down to 276 games, would like to get it down to 200. Stay tuned to this post as I will be adding items over the next month (or two).

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.

Archive of Marketplace Items / WANT TO BUY: WWII Miniatures and Terrain

I am looking to buy pre-painted WWII buildings, terrain features (Hills, trees, etc) and Axis & Allies Miniatures if anyone has items they no longer need and love.

PM me with any interest.

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...

Like the title of this thread says, it is time to replace the trusty game table in my gaming room. I am not a carpenter by any stretch, or even a handy man for that matter, so this will be a fun trial and error project. :)
Tell me your ideas? Share your thoughts, your tips, your tricks.


Here are my requirements:
(1) Table must be able to accommodate 10 players comfortably. Both the poker league and Formula De league are 10 players at the table.
(2) An oval table is beyond my woodworking capability, so this will be a rectangular table.
(3) No need for cup holders as we have TV table for all food and beverage.

What are your thoughts on the following:
A) What dimensions would you suggest?
B) Do you like playing games on a hard surface or a cloth surface?
C) I am of the opinion that table rails just eat up important gaming space? Am I a minority on this? What are your thoughts?
D) What other features would you recommend for a gaming table?

Hey folks.

It is time to dig into the Conflict of Heroes game in more detail. I am curious how many people here own or play the game. I just spent a few hours this weekend properly combining the following:

Conflict of Heroes: Awakening the Bear
Conflict of Heroes: Price of Honour - Poland 1939
Conflict of Heroes: Storms of Steel! - Kursk 1943
Conflict of Heroes: Map Board 6 (The Marsh)
Conflict of Heroes: Monster Tanks of the Eastern Front
Conflict of Heroes: Wrecks & Destruction on the Eastern Front
Conflict of Heroes: Awakening the Bear (2nd Edition)


I am looking forward to playing some of the meatier scenarios. Anyone else dug into the deeper side of this game?

Archive of Marketplace Items / FOR SALE: Various Games & Expansions.
« on: November 01, 2016, 03:01:33 PM »
Hello SaskGames community.

This is going to be my standing sale posting for the time being. I have decided that I would like to "drastically" reduce my games. I thought I would be able to get my collection done to a mere fifty games, but realistically it will be closer to seventy five games. That means, everything else is up for grabs. The list of things marked for liquidation on BGG will be dynamic and change significantly over time; check back often.

I am not going to post a list of games here as there are too many to price up and post. My current list of games and expansions for sale/trade can be found HERE.

As interest is shown in games, I will post the price here so I have a history of requests and potential transactions.

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 tend to shop and support local when I buy my games. I realize there are cheaper alternatives, but I am a firm believer of "Think Global, Shop Local". I will use Spielboy.com and BoardGameGeek to value items. A valuation guideline I use is to price at approximately 75% of new. If I acquired a game used or if it is in less than perfect condition, my pricing will reflect that.

Also, I will be using other avenues to move my games along. Math Trades and BGG Sales 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.

:police Addendum #1:
My darling better half, (Kathy), has veto power over any sale if it is a game she absolutely wants to keep. Thought I should make that clear to potential buyers as she has become quite the gamer in her own right.

 :police Addendum #2:
The person requesting a price for an item has first right of refusal on purchasing the item. I will give them one week after the items is priced to decide. After that, first come - first served.

« on: October 03, 2016, 09:12:00 AM »
This thread is to work on custom events for the game XIA: Legends of a Drift System.

This is a fan expansion to the game. Whenever a "1" is rolled on a d20, an event is triggered. Some of these are fleeting and only last until the next event occurs, and some of these have permanent effects on the game. Below are the listed of vetted and finalized events.
