Please post photos to the entry. That's going to help the site and your chance of selling it.

Also, uploading the rules as a file would help.

Yes but why is this game worth $900? Are the shekels laced in gold?

Sometimes a game is rare for a reason.

This publisher has published several other works (books mainly), but it's probably rare because no one I know of wants to play a roll and move bible trivia game.

So you tried uploading them to your gallery? Try submitting the game as a new game entry, then once it's active submit your photos for review.

Some of the rarer games that are hard to get are Antiquity, Roads and Boats, and Space Hulk. All 3 are running between 170-250 depending on condition. The difference with your games and those is, not only are they hard to get, but they are also HIGHLY sought after. Unless it is some sort of major historical importance, it is probably not worth much. Most of the people on this site are only out to buy games that are playable -or- "grail" games that are the type of game that are generally commonly accepted as the type of game that is good enough that it is worth the hefty price tag to get the rare item.

I'm not saying your game is worthless, just based on that general criteria, it probably is. Or at least not worth more than a small trade. But no shame in that, just also not 900 dollars in that.

The only comment I've seen about the game is that someone found a copy in a thrift store and bought it for $2. It was missing the board, so I am guessing with the board, that would double the price. So $4.

There you go. A valuation.

I know that some folks are kinda poking fun, but there's truth in what they're saying.

There are some excellent games on this site which were of low production, and out of print, which don't go that high.

My grail game, Vikingatid, is one of them. I can only find a copy in Sweden for sale for $400-600. I recently saw one on eBay go for around $240.

I've been searching for the game for several years. I just couldn't pull the trigger on that game in this economy.

What I am trying to say that it is unlikely to go for over $100 even if it is the only copy on earth still around. I've had single copies of OOP games in my collection before. Unless it's a really great game with either broad or specific appeal you're not going to sell it for much over $25.

This game does have some hope for finding a buyer if it is indeed that rare, and if someone like me exists who has been searching for it for a few years. There is always that possibility. But the only way you'll know is to put it on eBay.

This site is for serious gamers who tend to loathe roll-and-move games like Monopoly, or trivia games, and quite often Bible-themed games. We're not the most spiritual bunch as a whole.

So you're asking the wrong crowd. You'll get derision with a side of snark from most of us. You have to find a collector of that game, or someone who wants to buy an antique. You could try putting it up for sale at a local antiques consignment store. I've done that before... and they've started with a high price and dropped it by a percentage each month for a few months until either it sold or the consignment period ended. If it doesn't sell you pick it up, simple as that.

But again, this is really not a place to try sell that game, and certainly not for that price. There might be someone who has 2000 games who might want to be the sole owner, but since we know that's not the case (the thrift store find proves that) there's likely not going to be anyone willing to pay much for it.

I'd value it at $2-20 for that reason.
