Found a new sealed box but wonder if there is more of a market for a painted set or for selling it sealed. Thoughts?

Thought: don't try to make money off second hand sales, just enjoy the games.

Not looking to make bank. Know people are looking for this and found a dusty copy. Don't know if people want painted or unpainted.

Ie: will sell at cost or sell cost plus painted. Don't presume I'm a prick.

There's probably more of a market for the sealed copy. I assume that people who want it painted already have a copy and have enjoyed it thoroughly.

I agree. Unless you have some serious street cred as a top tier painter, all you will do is devalue the game. Sell it sealed. It will be easier to get rid of that way.

I contacted Plaid Hat a few weeks ago and they told me reprints are on the way. So the game may not be as rare as it seems at the moment.

If it were me, (and I had L337 painting skills) I'd probably post it somewhere for sale with the note that I could paint it before sending (for an additional cost of course)if the buyer so wished... but if you get a buyer who wants it stock, then just sell it stock.

Just my 2 cents...

[Edit]: but for all I know, you sold it already
