Opinion question folks. I've used BGG for a few years now, but never in terms of buying/selling games.

I'm looking to move only a small number of games that we no longer play and am wondering the best way to go about it on BGG with local gamers.

I've thrown it up on Facebook, but again that audience only targets my friends and friends who are gamers.

Do I put this in the Ontario thread or elsewhere if I want to offer these to Ottawa/Gatineau folks?

Thanks,

Chuck

Step 1: add the games to your "for trade" list!!

Yup, first thing we do is check your trade list, but it's empty.

You can create a thread in the Trades forum, and specify in the title/header "No-ship Local - Ottawa" or whatever makes sense.

Listings in the Trades forum may specify that they will also accept cash offers. In that case, they should note that sales will go through the Marketplace.

If you are looking to sell there is also Kijiji and UsedOttawa.com as options.

Please post to this list when you put them onto your list of for sale items. I would like to browse and I am in Ottawa.

Awesome, I was thinking of those routes as a last resort hoping to offer stuff to gamers first. Most are very run-of-the-mill but thought there might be interest.

I've added the titles to my trades list in case anyone's interested in the first ones to be thrown on there.

Hi Chuck,

If I understand correctly, you are not even supposed to use the forums for buying/selling so BGG may delete this thread. (I tried it once.)

You could do a Geek Auction and promote local pick-up.

I usually sell at CanGames or another local convention. They keep a percentage but it supports a local con so that's good...
