I am wonderng whether ebay is the best place to sell my full Battlelore collection.
I have been having it there for sale for almost three weeks now and did not get any good offers.
I am wondering wether geekmarket would be a better place?

Perhaps someone can give me a good advice on the matter of selling it?

Unfortunately, you might have missed your window to get the price you think it is worth. The purchase price for them has tumbled dramatically since the second edition was released. You might need to reset your expectations.

That said, setting up an auction here on BGG will have people specifically interested in the game looking, and they will understand that in a sense they are different games. However, they will also be aware of the going rates.

Good luck!

Thank you for your reply but I doubt that $349 for the complete collection including all of expansions and promos(with most of expansions never played) with free shipping is too much to ask for.
Am I wrong?

I can't say that you are definitely wrong but, from my selling experience (mostly on eBay), that price seems pretty steep. As previously noted, second edition is out. No idea how popular it is but, if someone is looking to get into the game, they're most likely to go that route.

Good luck!

I doubt you'll get your asking price on BBG. You might be lucky to sell it at that on EBay.

You are asking almost full retail value for the set. Unfortunately, as said above, the value of the game has dropped dramatically.

I understand you may just want to sell it asap, but keep it up there. The holiday shopping season is starting soon, there may be interest in it at your asking price.

The full retail price would be closer to $600:

Battlelore base game (first printing) - $50
Call to Arms expansion - $10
The Hundred Years' War – Crossbows & Polearms - $75
Epic Battlelore (extra board) - $10
Scottish Wars - $25
Dwarven Battalion Specialist Pack - $40
Heroes expansion - $50
Goblin Marauders Specialist Pack - $25
Goblin Skirmishers Specialist Pack - $20
Dragons expansion - $50
Creatures expansion - $45
For Troll & Country - $5
Hill Giant promo - $15
Code of Chivalry - $55
Horrific Horde - $60
Earth Elemental promo - $15
Bearded Brave - $25


Also, as far as I understand many people still prefer 1st edition over second
It allows to play historical battles plus regiments with flags and more figures in each unit look so much more epic IMHO.

So I think this price is reasonable...

Anyways thank you very much for your advise.

My two cents: I own what you have. I bought some on EBay some on Amazon, but also some in stores. My total is about USD 450,-.

Bearing in mind the store-bought items your price of 360 is fair but i don't think you will get it very quickly.

Last year a German player sold his panted miniature set (double base game and all the expansions with packing crates/boxes) for about USD 300.
That was a much more impressive collection than yours.

But prices tend to be a little higher in the States than over ere in Europe.


Good luck selling your collection!

Thank you everyone for participating in this thread. To close the topic I wanted to tell you that I just have sold my collection on eBay by accepting $300 offer.
