The Autumn Make an Offer list... NOW CLOSED
- Paul Boos(pmboos)United States
It's getting towards the end of the year and time for me to clean out some games that aren't or most likely won't hitting the table. So here we go with another of my Make an Offer lists.
Here's how it will work - I place an item up and you make an offer on it. Competing offers can come in as well, including your own counteroffers. At the end of the time frame, I will select which offer I accept including rejecting any I don't feel captures the 'value' in keeping it.
You can make an offer on one item or across several items. When you make an offer across several items, state what you are offering AND all the items you are offering across. Do this across all items where you are making an offer so this is transparent to all offerors.
You are expected to pay shipping unless you also state that you want shipping included (i.e. for me to pay it).
As always, cash will catch my attention, but I am open to trades, geek gold, and even other items of interest. What might they be?
I play around with electronic music, so synthesizers, drum machines, sequencers, accessories etc. can always be offered. I ask that they work. A few smaller items of interest: a Mattel Synsonics, any Volcas except the Sampler, Teenage Engineering devices, a Korg SQ-1, and a Kawai Q-80ex (the ex is preferred, I have a Q-80 and would take another as a back-up). Simpler items like high quality MIDI and audio cables and 2.8" Quick Disks are also possibilities. I'm mostly MIDI; for CV devices, keep in mind I only have just a couple of devices that are CV. I have nothing that truly bridges MIDI to CV for synchronization.
gift cards are also great, we shop at Amazon, Harris Teeter, or Target the most. Of course ones like Visas or AmEx work as well. I'm thinking people may have unused amounts on cards that they just don't need... (We collect wine also, so a gift card to Total Beverage is also useful.)
Games for teaching others "Agile" stuff: I'm in need of 2-3 copies of Pandemic (any version) or Container to use for teaching systems thinking. Forbidden Island is another I use to help people understand Team Dynamics. I do need these to be complete to be useful.
Games for me to play; any expansions I don't have. Of course I am trying to reduce my collection, and yet I would still consider games I don't have. (I am going to try and get my collection up to date with this. I love area control/influence, action point allowance, and worker placement mechanics the most. Dislikes: zombie and horror themes. I'm also trying to buildout my Monsterpocalypse a bit more - I'm only interested in monsters and units (mostly units) from series 1-3, not 4 onward. I'm also interested in Wings of War Balloon Busters expansion (and various minis).
Just mentioning this - in the past I have mentioned I'd accept books; my book backlog is quite long right now, so I don't really need any. I would consider recent guides to Italy and Croatia since we're hoping to go within the next year or two. I'd also consider a gluten free cookbook for my wife.
Star Trek DVDs/BlueRays: DS9, Enterprise, or Voyager.
Lego: basic bricks are needed most (2x2, 2x3, 2x4) in any and all colors. I'll still accept other Lego parts. I'm building out some kits for Agile training/Lego Serious Play. Just state what you are offering...
This should hopefully give you lots of options to consider! Of course, feel free to try something else...
You will find a mix of vintage games, kickstarters, Euros, abstracts, etc. in here.
Shipping: plan on the average game weight being 3.5 pounds when you want to estimate weight; this will keep it simple (I'll state games likely to break that rule). My zip is 22044. I can easily ship with the US postal system and UPS. I can probably accommodate any box size. Locally arranged pick-up is also possible.
End date - I'll start monitoring on 20 September. When an item has no bid activity within the last 12 hours, I'll declare that item done (this is up to my monitoring though, so if someone sneaks in, it may continue - I'm going to try and use this method to stagger payment and shipping; I've gotten overwhelmed at the end of auctions before.). Sometime on 1 October, I will close it all down regardless.
Bid increments - Since it is a Make an Offer list, there are no bid increments.
Reserves/Buy Nows - I may state reserves or buy now prices on some games. Use the reserves as guidance of where my head is at, I may take less, but you can be guaranteed I'll take a reserve. Buy Now prices will be accepted unless I state that is revoked due to some interesting offer. (Hey - if someone offers a Sequential Circuits Prophet T-8 or an Elektron SFX6 for something you can bet I'll be more interested in that!
Additions - I'll be adding to this list through the weekend.
