What games are currently out of print or selling for great prices? I'm looking to thin out my collection to pay some bills

Two games I really like that are out of print for no good reason are:

Homesteaders and Russian Railroads

They are both great, but no one is printing them. So weird to me.

Looking at your collection, the obvious choice is your Arcadia Quest and Blood Rage KS exclusives, but I am sure you already knew that. Same with Masmorra, Massive Darkness and The Others, to the extent you have KS exclusives, but I am not sure on the demand for those 3.

Fury of Dracula would be another one until GW releases a new edition.

Russian Railroads is not in print at the moment so you can get a lot for that one too.

Not sure if your copy of This War of Mine is the KS Edition, but if it is you should get well over $100 for it.

I think you missed the window on SW: Rebellion and Spirit Island as they are back in print.

Isn't Homesteaders getting a reprint in the very near future?

You have your game collection listed on BGG. Each page for games has listed their current Amazon price. That should give you an idea, just click on your older games and do the footwork yourself.

Here is a link to your collection using the Advanced Search: https://boardgamegeek.com/search/boardgame/page/1?sort=rank&...

As a first pass you can look at the Amazon prices on the right. If there are none or are close or above list price the game is likely hard to get currently. You can corroborate by looking at the game's geekmarket prices and checking other retailers for prices and availability here: https://www.boardgameprices.com/

Not in all cases. Kingsburg was just reprinted, however the Amazon price is showing at Used $125.

Looking through your collection,

The Ancient World is OOP at the moment and is selling for a decent amount.

Mechs vs. Minions is going for a good amount at the moment.

Mice and Mystics: Downwood Tales is selling for an insane amount at the moment.

Mystery Express is OOP and likely wont come back in print in the near future. It is also selling for a decent amount.

Ticket to Ride: 10th Anniversary will never be back in print and is selling for a hefty sum.

After seeing what Kingsburg (Second Edition) was going to look like, I went searching for the first edition last summer. I lucked out and got both Kingsburg and Kingsburg: To Forge a Realm on a GeekBay auction for $60. The going price for a while was $60 each.

OP has it as a top 10. If you're okay with how the Second Edition looks, you could make the swap and get some decent cash back. Tom Vasel just did a video comparing the two editions.

Arboretum ... in your collection ... "just a card game" but fetches a nice premium.

Any of the Discworld games, IIRC they're not only OOP but from what I remember they can't reprint it due to the Pratchett estate licenseing issues. I don't know what they fetch for exactly but my copy of Ankh-Morpork was 175$ in '15 if my math serves.
