Hello
I was able to find a copy of VITP unpunched in great condition except one end of the box has become separated at both corners. Other than that everything is pristine. I am considering selling it but do not know how much I should ask for it. Any suggestions?
Thanks

You could try to find a punched copy with a nice box ...

I had that exact thought myself! It really could make the set attractive to a collector.

Screw collectors and tell them i said so. yuk

Games were meant to be played!

I would rather give a game away to someone i knew would toss dice with it at least once than sell it for $100

If I owned a hobby store or something it would be my business, but it is not.

Bottom line, to directly answer your question, the damage to the box ends its value as a collectible. I'd ask $50 and settle for anything between $35 and $25.

COLLECTORS RUINED THE HOBBY!!!!! yukshake

Art is collected.
Coins are collected.
Oil cans are collected. (although I'm not sure why)

Games are PLAYED.
Play the game, dude. It's fun fun fun

I have a copy I play already...MANY TIMES...... Dont need to punch this one. Want to sell it to someone who may want a copy of a game in a condition they will not most likely see again.

"Now that's a horse of a different color."

Does it still have that "new game smell" too, or just that untouched feel. I always liked the new game smell... and those little cardboard shavings that always fell off the counter sheets. I don't see that much anymore.

Just as a reference, I bought my nephew a copy on eBay two Christmases ago that was 90% unpunched - the air units had fallen out of the sprue - with an intact box that had just some shelf wear. Cost me about $40 with shipping and the guy threw in a non-AH bonus game the name of which escapes me at the moment (100% unpunched). Hope that helps.

That's nothing compared with a friend of mine having recently garnered this, along with "War at Sea" AND W.A.S.-II-counters SET including the usually missing "Air Assault on Crete/Malta" Variant counters, as he discovered owning that mapsheet for it as well! cool

Go to spielboy.com and enter in Victory in the Pacific. It will give more details about the condition of each game that was sold on BGG. You probably won't get as much on Ebay, but it will sell quicker.
