Twin Cities Games for sale, notifications and kickstarter.
- Minneapolis St Paul(MSP1)United States
This list is for those users who what to keep a long term list of games for sale. Please maintain your list (clearly update it with changes in price and availability). Remember people are coming in here occasionally to see what is available. They don't remember exactly what your post looked like last time.
Stores are welcome to keep 1 post per store that contains any information about upcoming sales and events. Be careful that you are following all bgg rules about sales. In other words if you sell someone a game through this site you are subject to bgg market rules. I would discourage posting any prices and taking any orders through this site as that falls under BGG rules as a sale.
Kickstarter group buys may be entered here as well. Use the post to track who is involved in the kickstarter as well as any other pertinent information. If you are doing this for a profit (stores) I would discourage anything other than a post stating that you are getting that product (see notifications section).
This thread can work both ways. If you are actively seeking certain games post here as well. Do not post once per game. Do one post for all of the games that you want. Again keep this updated and only use it for those that are proving hard to get (use your want list for the rest). This is an experimental purpose of this thread and might be removed if it isn't working out so well for the community as a whole. If you pay for the game it still counts as a sale and bgg should get it's cut.
You may do a post to the Minneapolis/St Paul thread to let people know that you have a new post out here. However do not post regular updates to that thread as we do not want it clogged up with sales. Most people will subscribe to this thread if they are interested in ongoing sales.
When your sale is finished please remove the item from this list. Doing so will keep the list clean and make it easy for people to see which sales are current. I will be contacting the original poster (and potentially deleting) any post that has not had an edit or comment in the last 2 months. If a kickstarter post has an estimated delivery date it will not be deleted before that date. If that date changes I suggest updating the post. If a geeklist item has not been updated in approx. 2 months a post from the moderators will be added asking to update or delete the item. If it still has not been updated after the next two months it will be deleted.
If you want to help maintain this thread GM MSP1 and one of the people who currently manages the account and it's threads will get back to you. If you feel this thread is being managed inappropriately contact sancmat and he will see about changing who has access if necessary.
Please also give BGG their cut if you sell here. To do this you can simply make a market transaction for your sale with a particular buyer's name reserved in the comments. This also will allow the stats to be tracked accurately. Alternately you can create a single listing for the entire proceeds from your auction and have an admin "purchase" it from you.

Extra Hint: If you don't want to get notifications from the ongoing sale items that tend to be edited several times, when a new auction is posted choose the little arrow next to "subscribe" on the item and then click block. You won't get notified of new things added to that item, but you also won't be notified of every change made.
This geek list is owned and managed by the city account MSP1. If you have questions about this account or the geek list post in the comments. We are watching.
