Am I right in thinking that any games for sale / auction would either be found by the Marketplace or on the GeekBay forum?

I'm often looking for second-hand titles on sale in the UK. At the moment I've bookmarked a link that searches the GeekBay forum for threads with UK in the title, but this doesn't seem to get updated very often. It's quite likely it could just be that there isn't much for sale, but thought I'd check in case I was missing something obvious.

Are sales often started straight with GeekLists with no related thread in the GeekBay forum? If so, is there any easy way to find these?

Try ebay, it's where I tend to sell.

Good suggestion, I do keep an eye on there! But sometimes I like to browse what's on offer to see if anything catches my eye, a bit harder to do on ebay because of the amount of items on sale!

It may be that there isn't much on here for UK sales, just wondering if I'm getting the most of out of the site of if there's hidden gold.

You can find auction geeklists a few different ways, one of those is Geekbay. You might also want to subscribe to the Metalist for Geeklist Auctions

Links at the top here:

GeekList auction

and bookmark this page

http://bggauctions.workingasintended.com/auctions/

which shows games for sale, and their location

That's very helpful, thanks, especially the second link!

Impressed that it picks up Scots and English as well as UK flags.

+1 to this. That group has 4,500 users currently and games get posted for sale pretty much every day.

Hi guys, I have been trying to find the"Roleplaying and Board Games for Sale UK & EU ONLY!" group on fb, but it does not pop up in my search. I found somewhere a direct link to the group but I get errors when trying to open. Is the group still active? Or maybe its secret? (;

So my friend added me to the group 'roleplaying and board games for sale UK and EU only' almost a year back but rather than accepting me the admin blocked me. I presume my accident because I didn't do anything (or have chance to) and I don't know the admins. I've now relocated to the UK and have tried to gain access again but I'm still blocked. My friend just posted onto the group to ask them to unblock me and the admins simply deleted his request and I remain blocked.

Has anyone else had issues with this? Does anyone know the admins, and could ask them to unblock me?

Thanks guys!

Not sure what is going on there Lára

An alternate is "Board Game Trading and Chat UK", it's very similar (a lot of people are in both groups) and has a friendly set of members. Though I've just seen you're not UK - that said most of the posts in the group you've mentioned are UK-targeted too.

Drop me a PM with a link to your Facebook account and I'll pass the request on to the admins.

I've relocated, and usually split my time between Iceland/UK. I've joined the group, thanks for the tip!

ps: I love your username!
