Closed.

My family and I are moving shortly, and I need to rid myself of many games that I have currently in the storage unit that will not fit into our new home, no matter how hard I try (or beg).

I have struck a bargain with my wife that, assuming I can get the collection down to a manageable size, she will allow a full wall of shelving, floor to ceiling, full of games for my collection. While this is a wonderful thing, I still have too many -- even with an 8 ft wall of shelving, at max capacity. So, here we are.

The thing is: my wife is smart. Realizing the above, she has tasked me with selling the overflow of games in order to pay for the shelving, which wont be cheap! (Otherwise, we could not afford it, considering the many other costs of purchasing a home.). Since all games kept must be on a shelf, I'm in a bit of a pickle.

So, in order to save my collection, I need to practice some creative addition by subtraction-- pronto.

Here's where this great community comes in: I have some good games here, and I will price them as reasonably as I can manage, with the hopes that I will raise enough money to buy some Ikea Kallax shelves that will fit as many games as possible. The higher my total for purchasing shelving, the more games I'll be able to save!

So, please, have a kind heart and bid on some of these for me. Please? ...Please?!

Here are the rules, via the "short, short version":

1. All sales will go through BGG marketplace and BGG will see their 3%, as always. Transactions must be done via paypal (or cash if in person) and payment made within 48 hours of the auction end.

2. Buyer pays shipping costs, typically through USPS and using flat rate boxes, when it applies (which is a lot of the time since I'm located in Miami). Other arrangements for shipping, including combined orders, can be made, but must be agreed to ahead of time via Geekmail and not after the sale.

3. Minimum bids are posted and are exactly that: minimum bids. Please do not bid lower, as these bids will be ignored. All other bids must increase in amount by at least $1 over the previous bid. (If you want to explore a multi-game purchase deal, feel free to contact me via geekmail).

4. Open to the US Only. Sorry, but I wont have the time to put into worldwide shipping for now.

5. Auction will end on July 6th, 2016 at a time of my choosing, sometime after 5pm but before 12 midnight, in order to prevent snipers.

6. Please be respectful and keep negative comments to yourself (if you don't like something or its price, simply don't bid and move along.)

7. No trades this time. It's cash or bust, due to the above.

est. shipping cost: slightly bigger box than standard, but should cost about the same to ship (approx. $14)


This one hurts. Heavy game, but I love, love the art. So unique, but just haven't been able to get it out with my group.

Complete collection.

min bid: $70

shipping cost: This is everything housed in the big, "Fresh Meat" exp. box meant to hold it all, so it will depend, but likely in the $17 to $22 area for shipping. (min bid price has been adjusted to compensate for the increased shipping).

This is the entire collection for Cutthroat Caverns. Every expansion, and the 2 Adventure books, included.

You'll be hard pressed to find all of this cheaper and in such excellent condition.

Completionists: If you've been holding off on this until you could get everything (not easy to do anymore), then this is it.

min bid: $14

shipping cost: depends -- (this is old-school board game box sized and won't fit in a flat rate, so likely between $14 and $20. Cost of the game has been adjusted down to compensate some to offset the shipping cost.

Getting tougher to find this classic Schacht.

Comes with 2 mini expansions, including The Embassies expansion, which is nearly impossible to find now.

Box has a few small areas of shelfwear, but looks great for its age.

This includes a few of the available promos, but I don't have time to go through it and identify them. There's at least 2 promos and a small exp. included, from memory, and most likely more than that.

New in shrink.

Getting tougher to find. Hidden movement game with similarities to Letters From Whitechapel and Specter Ops. If that's your type of game, then consider grabbing this one before its extinct in the market.

Kosmos 2 player line. This one has been reprinted recently, but with a different theme (Norse mythology). Should you prefer the Greek Mythology version, here it is.

Note: The game is in good condition and complete, but has a small, less than dime-sized hole in the back of the box. No issue with it holding the game though.

Hermagerd. This is a good game that never received the attention it should have, (in my opinion). Out of print now, I think.

Great looking game with typical amazing Queen games production quality. Game itself is simple, but works well.

good filler material here.

Wow! This appears to be OOP and impossible to find in the USA now (checked both the BGG marketplace and Amazon).

Get it now for a reasonable price! This copy is in used, but good condition.

(sorry for the late addition. Just forgot this one when making the auction).
