Instead of 1 game at a time, I was wondering if there's a site that could take an input of multiple games and output the best sites to buy them on?

I assume it shouldn't be too large a step up from sites like boardgameprices?

Boardgameprices.com will do that actually - load the items into the comparison cart.

Timewellspentgames.com does price-matching, so long as you tell them your sources. Free shipping is a bit higher, but when I have larger orders and they have the stock, I go through them because of this feature.

edit->

For some reason they don't actually advertise this heavily on their site, though. Do a search for "price matching" in their about us page:

I'm lost... I don't see any tabs, or anything that says News, or Login, or Wishlist, on boardgamepprices.com.

What am I missing? I am using a new Mac Mini, running OSX Mavericks and Safari, if that makes any difference.

(Mentally preparing myself to look extra stupid here...)

On the individual game pages, you can click 'Add to Comparison Cart'. Then you can compare the prices within the Cart.

We're currently working on improving the Comparison Cart by adding the ability to import BGG wishlists and putting in a 'Free Shipping Countdown' since most sites offer free shipping at a certain threshold. No timeline for these updates but hopefully not much longer than a few weeks.

Any more feedback would be great - I'm glad that people are using this feature.

Dude, your features are amazing and an immense help to us gamers everywhere. Thank you so much!

EDIT: Oh, but for feedback - I suppose maybe a login feature could help? I usually have to reenter all my stuff back into the comparison cart every time I want to do comparisons and its a little irksome. And perhaps have an Amazon/Ebay store as well for more comparisons? Not sure how feasible that is though.

But still, amazing site!

Thanks for the kind words !

I'm not sure of the logistics regarding a login feature, but I'll explore the options.

eBay and Amazon listings are currently on each game page.

Thanks,
Ben

We just launched a new version of the comparison cart on BoardGamePrices.com (thanks in part to this thread)!

Importing your BGG Want/Wish lists takes about 3 seconds to do.

Instead of a shipping calculator, we have sort of a 'Countdown to free shipping' for each store. The cart will tell you how much more you need to add to your cart in order to receive free shipping.

Easily share your Comparison Cart on social media, or e-mail it to yourself to save for later.

I'm always looking for ways to make the site more useful as well as user-friendly. I'm open to your feedback and comments.

Thanks!
Ben
