Paul's Continued Need to Clear-Out Some Items -- YET ANOTHER MAKE AN OFFER LIST
- Paul Boos(pmboos)United States
THIS LIST IS NOW CLOSED - I WILL BE NOTIFYING THE WINNERS SHORTLY.Recommend
--->>> I will reopen this list on 15 or 16 Feb if folks want to try again - I may add some additional items as well.
OK, a little preliminary to this one is in order...
I lost my IT position on a NASA contract back in November thanks to a reorganization of personnel. With that said, I am now "self-employed" and while not in the poor house (yet), our cashflow overall is not doing so hot.
At any rate, I need to clear out some games I bought that looked interesting, yet have gone unplayed; I really can't afford to take a loss on these so please try and be kind in your offers. I also don't feel like offering this particular stuff up on eBay as I think folks here will enjoy them more - eBay is fickle and doesn't usually recognize games for gaming value - more for collectability. I have been doing some eBay speculating (buy deals to sell on eBay) with a mild amount of success, but alas I need to appeal to true geeks who understand games for some of these (even if for nothing more than the components).
This LIST will close down (meaning the offers/bidding end) noon 7 February 2008 and I will determine and notify the winners here on the list and initiate trades and begin shipping after that weekend (it is my reserve weekend). For everything, please plan on a $10 shipping charge on these for parcel post mail; if it winds up being a trade, then please consider the shipping cost to be your traded item. If you are doing it as a purchase or GeekGold, I will indicate if shipping will be less or more than this (i.e. use $10 for planning, but I will get you a more accurate estimate afterwards - and if I know that estimate ahead of time I will post it in the item auctioned). If you want to do a GG equivalent for shipping, please note that in your offer and what the GG shipping offer is.
I will be updating this over the weekend with more stuff, so check back often. I have placed myself on vacation, so all purchases are suspended. I will currently accept only standard Geek trades of games that are not on this list. I have gone from trshier stuff to better stuff - so look later in the list for the cream of teh crop stuff.
I am starting with some games that are incomplete and useful for parts, but complete games will be added - don't you worry.
Most (but not all) games will be from thrifts - so plan on the typical clear tape on the boxes (even if they say good shape). I believe most of what I am listing is complete, but I could have missed something - I have inventoried these, but for some it has been awhile. If you want me to check a specific game, let me know. I will annotate what is known missing or any significant damage.
A word about offers... I WILL entertain trades. Cash will of course get most of my attention. Make offers as comments and try and at least meet the top end of my local thrift prices ($1-4 per game in my area), so I can get some positive cashflow. Offers can be $, items (they don't have to be games), or GeekGold or any mix of these.
This is very similar to the Make an Offer GL I had about 7 months ago... See http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/20746
You can offer any mix of stuff... Here is an example of an extreme mix...
I will take the Trivial Pursuit Simpson Edition with Homer Expansion - I offer the following:
A copy of 3M JATI
a signed copy of the book Ringworld
The 10GG and Ringworld book is to cover shipping.
It is less likely I will accept offers that don't provide at least a little cash, but all offers will be reviewed. I will determine the winner and can spurn all offers if they don't make at least a little for me; if someone is close - I'll mention it as a comment myself, so you know you are close. You can make the offer only for aparts of the game if you want (with of course a correspondingly cheaper shipping). If you want to make offers across MULTIPLE listings, please use the comments below, but also put a reference in EACH GL listing. There are a few non-monetary, non-GG, game and non-game items I would like to get:
* Working Rokenbok components for my son, in particular a standard dispensing bin and a ramp set.
* Two books: The Reality of Dysfunction and Neutronium Alchemist both by Peter F. Hamilton
* a die with one 3, two 2's, and three 1's on it (I presume one exists) - preferably the numbers and not the spots; it's for a prototype of a game I am working on...
* two factory pieces/bits the ones from Axis & Allies would be perfect and a piece that would look something like a nuke power plant - again for the prototype I am working on...
* The red 'D' Diplomatic bag and one die for for Top Secret
* Alesis AirSynth
* Alesis AirFX (wlk away with practically the whole list! offer both of these Alesis instruments to me)
I'll probably think of more as the list goes on...
LET ME ALSO ADD - I will provide back 5% of any actual purchase ($) price to BGG once I am employed, since that will allow me to compensate them as if it were a market purchase.
So give a guy a helping hand and get some bargains...
Thanks for any help in your purchases!
PS - PLEASE post your offers on the list, I have gotten several private emails re: items, but honestly I can not honor those as this is supposed (like my original make an offer list) to be an offer then someone may raise your offer, etc. Just like an auction.
