Greetings--

I'm liquidating most of my collection, and I'm starting with a "garage sale" here in beautiful (cough) State College PA. So far I've cataloged over 330 games and game expansions, with a bunch left to go. (The inventory I have on here is not up-to-date; please ask to see the current sale inventory. Also, I'm not selling everything.)

It's going to be on Saturday, April 24, from 11 AM to 6 PM. If you're interested, ask for the catalog and if there's enough there to tickle your fancy, I'd be happy to give you directions.

I'd be interested in a list (my yahoo username is the same as here, if you want to send via regular email) - I've been to State College before (friend used to live there) - it's drive-able from here.

Yowch! Only one issue...that's when Games Club of Maryland is scheduling its Game Days. A lot of potential buyers may be there...it is a huge regional draw despite the distance from SC to Baltimore. But I understand this may be a process, so...

Hi, I'm in NJ so it's not that long of a drive - can you send me a catalog please?

I'd be interested in a list.

As of right now I'm not going to be there that weekend (though there is a slight chance that may change).

I am hoping to visit some people before the end of the semester, so I’m sure that we could work something out. Thanks;.

I'm right here in State College so I believe I can say that I will definitely be there with bells on. May I have a catalog and directions, please?

Catalog is coming. It's being turned into a Google docs spreadsheet so it'll be continually updated.

Here's the inventory. Plenty of games yet to be added to it...it's closer to being done for the non-wargames than the wargames.

Alfred is first class/high class all the way. We don't see enough of him these days on BGG, but he has made many positive contributions. Alfred is never mean and is always gracious. His history education means he has much to offer to wargame discussions.

That's quite the selection!

Are you going to update the list with prices? or do you want offers for them?

I'll have prices up by then, but I'll also be taking offers. The median price will be something like $20, I think.

OK. Due to popular demand, I've begun putting up some estimates (ESTIMATES!) of what I'm looking for, price-wise. I haven't priced anything yet, and things might move a bit. If something says "15," you bring $15 with you, and there it is on the $20 shelf, I've just warned you.

I haven't priced most of what I perceive to be the higher-demand items. I do intend to give volume discounts, but at what point something becomes "volume" I'm not sure (money? quantity? both/either?), and it might be a moving target throughout the day.

A quick note to anybody coming who's subscribed to this: I'm going to send out directions to my apartment starting this evening. I'll go through here looking for interest, but I also encourage you to send me a geekmail so I'm sure to see it. Thanks!

This event was handled very well. It could've gotten ugly but it was organized and orderly and very fairly handled. Thank you!

Indeed; it was almost supernatural how well everything went. I'm very pleased with the results, and I hope everyone else is too!

This is what I really look like. Really. Actually, it was clip art borrowed from the internet

Sorry--by 9 PM tonight, all the games (except the ones I kept, of course) will be gone.

Yeah, I think it was handled very well. Sure I lost a few that were high on my list to the dice rolls, but I walked out with a nice stack of games that will keep me busy for some time.

My buddy said things went well - and while I didn't get the one game I really wanted, (even my proxy dice rolling sucks) I did get two very good games at good prices. Thanks for holding the sale Alfred!
