Anyone in the Chattanooga, TN area could benefit from the following news:

McKay Used Books & CDs has started selling and taking board games in trade as part of their normal operations.

I for one think this is a great idea, and contributed a handful of games to their fledgling stock.

So if you have any games you want to offload for books, CDs, games, etc. this could be a great opportunity to help them build a worthwhile inventory.

Thanks.

PS-Brick and Mortar stores dealing in used games? Yes, sir.

I think this is awesome. Hopefully the McKays in Knoxville is doing the same thing. I'll be in the area next week and look forward to finding out.

Boy, that escalated quickly. I mean that really got out of hand fast.

I hope it doesn't descend into the lowest form of board game, cast off stuff only fit for the thrift stores. That's what I see at the used book store that takes games around here.

Yeah, if they have someone knowledgeable there that won't just take in every game that comes into the store it could be awesome. But if I want to go look at shelves full of Sorry, Clue, Yahtzee, and Trivial Pursuit I have my thrift stores for that. At the same time I have to wonder how many folks would be willing to trade in good games? Unless of course they could trade them in for other good games.

There were a couple of trivial pursuits the first time I went by, but also a stack of Herocard Orc Wars (NIS). Snagged one at $3. Intrigued, I brought in a couple of my decent games and some of my better looking thrift finds and was pleasantly surprised at how much credit they gave me. I even gave them a couple of NIS games I got on the cheap. Made more than I would have if I auctioned them on BGG, actually.

I figure even if they carry thrift-store stuff in decent shape or better and for a good price, that can only be a win for us in the long run (quality copies, that is).

Hoping others will consider bringing in some goodies to start something up here.

The problem is always going to be...

"Man, this looks cool, but I bet some of the pieces are missing."

Or for the game-savvy, just substitute 'counters', 'meeples', 'bits' for 'pieces'.

But I nonetheless sure hope it works.
