It’s nearly time for the World Famous Annual Manchester Board Gamers Auction. This is held every year (for at least 15 years) on the first Saturday in March at the Scout Hut in Romiley Stockport.

This is in effect a bring a buy sale. It started as a wargame auction but over the years the balance is shifting to Euro Games – I think wargames are still in the majority.

Last year there were over 400 games bought and sold. This list is dedicated to the games I expect to be selling this year. I’ve got to create space so the games on the list aren’t necessarily bad games. The max number of games each person can sell is 15, I'm not quite up to that number so I'll probable add games nearer the day

I’ve included comments about why I’m selling and what I hope to get for it

If anyone else is intending to come to the auction and sell, please feel free to add your games to this list

I bought this at an auction a year of so ago and have since only briefly looked inside the box and realised this is not for me. This one is in OK condition but appears to have been played a fair bit.

£1-£5.00

Potentially a great game but just not for me. Can?t find a fault with it really. Clear rules, well supported but just not for me. It?s in excellent condition

Before the great GMT sale I may have go £20+ for this but now maybe £10

Bought this at the auction about 10 years ago and have never been tempted to play it. It?s in great condition so if there are two collectors at the auction who both want it I may get a very good price for it (old SPI games in good condition can sell for a high price), otherwise I won?t get much

£3-£20

I bought this many years ago when I nearly became a collector and though I should have this in my collection. I?m not a collector and I don?t need this game. I?ve no idea what this may be worth

12. Board Game: Sweden Fights On [Average Rating:7.74 Overall Rank:2838]

Had this a few years but only played it for the first time FtF and realised it not for me. In fact it gave me a headache the size of Sweden. It?s just too fiddly for me, with constant referencing the rules, it just seemed too much effort for too little reward. However this system has it?s fans and my gaming partner thought the game to be very good.

As with all GMT games in this years auction the price may well be suppressed by the recent GMT sale .

£10 - £15
