I am probably going to sell all of my Memoir'44 collection soon, how much should I put a price tag on a complete set of M'44 collection, yes, I mean M'44 base game and all of them ekspansion, campaign books, and campaign bag altogether.

Thanks a lot, folks.

When it is your turn to send a VASSAL move, the wait is excruciating. When it's my turn, well, I've been busy.

You might want to just put the whole thing on eBay and let the market decide. You can always have a reserve.

The problem is that most people are not going to want to drop many hundreds of dollars for the whole thing, they will want bits and pieces. If they are new to the system they won't want to spend that much, and if they are committed to the system they will already have a lot of it.

Sell the first Campaign book and the 'Air Pack' separately. They are oop and hard to come by so fetch good prices.

Anybody wishing to buy a set wouldn't want the cost bump that including these in the package would bring.

I agree. Based on the experience of others, your best ROI is to probably sell it off in separate auctions.

now that you've mentioned it, I think this is going to be difficult to sell as a full-set, hmm..

My other "problems" is that I live in Jakarta, thus the shipping will cost significantly to the price..

It's really up to you! You might see if some items can be bundled together, like the campaign maps.

...Jakarta! Well, that complicates things. Maybe selling it in one big package will be for the best, all things considered. Good luck!

If you aren't in a hurry, list the items seperately here on BBG. That way you can wait until you find a local buyer who's willing to meet your price and shipping won't be so expensive for them.

To get approximate prices I use spielboy.com as a tool for reference pricing.

Sell Campaign Book 1 & Air Pack separately. Air Pack goes for $100+ and Campaign Book 1 goes for a fair amount too.

The rest, bundle up together and be done with it!

I'd put a price tag on a complete set at around $250 - $300.

This game is readily available new. I bought my complete set back in 2011 for around $100 and it had the core + all boxed expansions. The game just doesn't appreciate that well and typically to get it to move you're going to take a little hit.

Seriously dude, break off the pieces and sell them separately. Somebody who never played it doesn't want to shell out the hundreds it will take for the system without playing it. Those who have a lot of it probably want the 2 pieces listed above. The others are kind of in the system and would like to add a piece or two.

After a lengthy discussion with my wargaming-active children, I will probably keep this for another year and see if we'll sell it then.

I already had 2 inquiries from my local wargaming friends, I was about to let it go until my children said let's play it again and see then.. But I appreciate your spielboy reference, at least now I know that our M'44 collection is worth a few hundred bucks.

I understand that it's going to get hit on the price tag, thanks for that warning.

@all of you guys: I appreciate your help and views, it's great to be part of BGG community, especially with you wargaming folks.
